The Infinite Brief
A new survey conducted by Coinbase has revealed some truly encouraging statistics. 

According to the study, 18 percent of students said they own some cryptocurrency.

21 of the top 50 U.S. universities, as ranked by U.S. News and World Report, now offer a class on blockchain technology or cryptocurrency, and at least 11 colleges offer more than one.

While 34 percent of computer science and engineering majors indicated interest in learning about the technology, 47 percent of social science majors are interested in the same, according to the survey.

During the first session of the course in 2014, only 35 students enrolled. But in the spring of 2018, 280 students had enrolled.
