It was the first university in the world to offer a course on cryptocurrency, a free online course that has been followed by over 12,000 students since 2014. UNIC’s MSc in Digital Currency was the first accredited degree programme in the world in this field, and graduates from this programme have been involved in leading blockchain organisations worldwide. UNIC was also the first university to publish academic certificates on the blockchain, and to accept bitcoin for tuition.
