Cryptocurrency is a mysterious subject matter, even though it is all over the news. People from all backgrounds and ages are showing interest on the topic, and high schoolers are no different. Keeping this in light, Mr. Tim Breza, a Business and Personal Finance teacher at Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey will add cryptocurrency as a topic in his course, starting next semester.
Owing to the huge commotion that Bitcoin and other digital currencies are rallying up, it is easy to understand why people are what to learn more about the subject. Colleges across the world are already busy in curating specified courses on cryptocurrency. Also, looking how students at Brisbane Australia started a cryptocurrency information night shows just how much a sensation it has become.
Even, the reason behind the inception of this cryptocurrency course by Mr. Breza was by seeing the curiosity and interest in his student’s eyes:
“If one student’s talking about it, many of them are talking about it[…]So I figured we needed to include it.”
He then went on to state his gratitude towards the school for approving the course:
“I am very excited that the students and Union Catholic are being exposed to this… and that the UC administration supported teaching this to our students — Not too many schools are even thinking about teaching about cryptocurrency. We’re not teaching it in the sense that you have to invest in it, we are just giving the facts of it. Blockchain is the key to all of this. That’s the revolutionary piece to it.”
The students are also thrilled that they are now going to get a dedicated class where they can have talks about Bitcoin and gain a more detailed and educative perspective on the subject. Max Berg, a junior at UC has already invested in BTC and made some impressive returns. The young investor is highly pleased UC’s initiation and looks forward to the course will grow.
