The size of the blockchain market is projected to reach nearly $25 million by 2023, leading universities around the world to embrace the study of decentralized financial systems.

A recent Coinbase study found that 42% of the top 50 universities worldwide now offer at least one course on cryptocurrency and blockchain, with the highest concentration in institutions based in the U.S.
