Are you eager to learn more about Bitcoin mining and what this is all about? Well then, you’re in luck. That is, if you happen to be part of the New York University. Two NYU professors, finance professor David Yermack and law professor Geoffrey Miller, have proposed to start a class regarding Bitcoin and other popular digital currencies.
These professors truly seem to understand the huge importance that Bitcoin represents in the modern world and most of all; the great deal of confusion and lack of understanding that revolves around the crypto currency. Professor Yermack and professor Miller would like to assist their students sail trough the rough waters of regulation and comprehend the currency’s true value.
The class hasn’t been approved yet, however these teachers have already created an early outline to pitch their superiors on “The Law and Business of Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies.” Their courses will deal with topics such as money laundering via Bitcoin, ways to measure the currency’s trading activities and deep analysis on the question that seems to be the biggest one: is Bitcoin even a real currency?.
According to the duo, “Our proposal is for a combined offering of the Law School and the Stern School and would be open to registration for both law and business students. The class would be a 2-credit class for law student and a 1.5-credit class for business students. To adjust for the difference in credit, there would be four extra law classes for law students, not required for business school students, taught at the beginning of the semester.”
