The French Ministry of Education plans to supplement the high school curriculum with a module that focuses on cryptocurrency and its impact on the economy.
Teachers will tell students aboutbitcoin, its features and differences from fiat. Additionally, teachers will be provided with educational videos that cover a number of introductory topics on whether Bitcoin is the currency of the future, whether it can replace the euro, and questions of trust in traditional money.
The authorities expect that this will help students understand the essence of cryptocurrencies and theirrole in various modern economic systems. However, the goal of this course is not to issue cryptoexperts, but only to provide basic knowledge about a rapidly developing asset class.
This initiative is a logical step against the backgroundgrowing popularity of digital currencies in the country. Let us remind you that from 2020, 25,000 French retail stores will begin to accept bitcoins as payment, and since October, 5,200 tobacco stores across the country have already begun to sell bitcoin.</p>
