France To Introduce Crypto-Study In Syllabus To Educate The Masses
Keeping pace with technological development, the French government has decided to educate its younger generation about cryptocurrency. Recently the Ministry of National Education of France amended the educational plan to integrate cryptocurrency in the syllabus. The decision was made based on the government’s wish to make the students understand the basics of crypto.
The syllabus will also stress the overall impact that the advent of digital currencies has had on the global economy.
According to the statement released by The Ministry of National Education of France, the teachers will be given three educational videos. These will detail on the three main aspects of crypto which are:
- Bitcoin as the currency of the future
- The possibility of Bitcoin replacing Euro
- The trust issue with cryptocurrency
These three facets of the crypto scenario will help the students draw a comparison between crypto and fiat currencies, understand the significance and further deepen their understanding of the global impact of crypto.
Educating the younger generation and making them well acquainted with the latest technologies is the first step towards mass adoption. It is a smart and logical decision on the government’s part considering the rising popularity and usage of crypto by the masses. This trend has made crypto education of the common public the need of the hour.
France has been going steady with crypto adoption in different aspects of their economy. During Paris Retail Week, around 25000 retail stores owned by 30 retailers of France, declared, that they will start accepting payments via Bitcoin by early 2020. The country has also claimed its position as a Blockchain hub and has been attractive job seekers with great opportunities in the Blockchain and crypto-sphere. Just last year, IBM declared that they will create around 1800 jobs based on Blockchain investments and projects.
