A recent study by the U.S. crypto exchange Coinbase has shown that 42 percent of the world’s top 50 universities have at least one class on cryptocurrencies or blockchain. The results of the study were published on Coinbase’s official blog Tuesday, August 28.
The research was jointly conducted by Coinbase and survey company Qriously. Together they interviewed 675 U.S college students and reviewed courses at 50 international universities.
Of the 172 classes reviewed in the study, 15 percent were offered by economics, finance, law and business departments, while 4 percent were in social science departments.
The study has found out that blockchain- and crypto-related courses are most popular in the U.S. Only five of the 18 universities reviewed that operate outside of the United States offer at least one class on these topics.
Blockchain-related courses enjoy the most popularity at the Stanford and Cornell universities – numbered 10 and 9 respectively. University of Pennsylvania and the National University of Singapore follow with their respective 6 and 5 courses.
