Curtin wants bucks for blockchains

Curtin U announces a cryptocurrency scholarship fund

The fund will accept take donations in Bitcoin and Ethereum to fund PhD students, researching blockchains, crypto currency and data analytics. The fund will use a Web 3.0 payment system developed by project partners, Nelnet International and Centrality.

Curtin U says the fund is a chance for entrepreneurs who “have realised significant benefits” from cryptocurrencies “to give back.” Or not, depending CMM suggests, what funds are worth in fiat currency when cashed out to students. But at least donations can be tax deductible.

Clever move by Curtin U –the distributed ledger basics of the blockchain will boom as a research subject, however funded.
