Bitcoin and, significantly, the blockchain, are new technologies that have the potential to radically improve our lives. Every day, new applications are developed for these revolutionary innovations. However, "Bitcoin" is, regrettably, greatly misunderstood by most of those who have heard of it, and many in the media industry who report on it.
The College Cryptocurrency Network (CCN) was formed as a hodgepodge of "Bitcoin Clubs" at Stanford, MIT, and the University of Michigan in early 2014 as a means to properly educate young people about the potential of this incredible new technology. The Network has since spread to every habitable continent, with well over 100 chapters, from Kenya to the Philippines, from middle schools to PhD programs. We even have a network of academics as to provide cryptocurrency and blockchain researchers with the best means to stay connected.
CCN provides students, academics, and faculty with guidance, administrative and academic resources, job and internship opportunities, industry connections, and a network of like-minded individuals seeking to bring blockchain technology to the masses.
We are an international nonprofit organization, 501(c)(3)-pending, dedicated to forming a robust network of student groups and academics for blockchain education, innovation, and advocacy.
