Ray stated in a four-part Twitter thread that “Programming Bitcoin” would adhere to Bitcoin Protocol and students will gain knowledge of how to create a Bitcoin library from the beginning. He went on to say that it entailed months of effort to obtain approval from the educational institution’s applicable committee.

I will be teaching the first ever Bitcoin class at Texas A&M this spring!

Earlier, last year, Quincy University — a private Franciscan university based in Illinois — said it has started to accept donations in cryptocurrencies such as (CRYPTO: DOGE), (CRYPTO: SHIB) and (CRYPTO: ETH).

The liberal arts college — a 501(c)(3) charity — said it would accept contributions in a total of 32 different cryptocurrencies, noting that donations in cryptocurrencies are fast as well as secure and could save a donor in taxes.

Price Action: Bitcoin was trading at $21,126.64, up 2.05% in the last 24 hours, according to Benzinga Pro data.
