MIT goes Bitcoin

without comments

This is terrific news:  a couple of students want to give all undergrads $100 worth of Bitcoin.  Here is the news in MIT’s The Tech.

Some highlights:

  • “While the specific properties of bitcoin have some real problems, getting everyone at MIT to start playing with bitcoin … will prompt the MIT community to begin thinking seriously about how we can live in an all-digital future.” (Sandy Pentland)
  • Rubin and Elitzer want to see a bitcoin “ecosystem” develop at MIT in which people are not only exchanging bitcoins but also experimenting with related technologies.
