An academic discipline of Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has announced its new rule about accepting cryptocurrencies as means of payment from its students.
The respected US business school will have a new program called blockchain classes.
The latest introduced online program will launch on January 3, 2022. The business school entitled its scheme as the Economics of Blockchain and Digital Assets. This modern computer-controlled class will begin to embrace cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ether, or USDCoin over Coinbase as a tuition payment from its upcoming enrollee early next year. Wharton stated in a press release on Thursday.
