The US isn’t the only country offering crypto courses. In Cyprus, the University of Nicosia offers an MSc in Digital Currency and The Universidad de Alcalá in Spain is offering a degree called the “Máster en Ethereum, Tecnología Blockchain y Cripto-Economía.” Many Russian colleges are also beginning to offer classes.

The introduction of these courses seems only natural as the popularity of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are on the rise.
