- The recognition of Bitcoin increases across the globe
- French high school students to start learning about Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrencies
- France foresees a massive adoption for Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital currencies
Cryptocurrency News Today – High school students in France will learn about Bitcoin (BTC) and digital currencies. France is about to change its high school curriculum by introducing an education model that covers Bitcoin (BTC) and digital currencies. In June this year, the French Ministry of National Education modified its study scheme to integrate the largest digital currency in the world.
French High School Curriculum to Include Bitcoin Introductory Course
Based on the new modification, French educators would have to teach an introductory course that would assist students in understanding the impact of Bitcoin (BTC) on the French and global economies. As part of the new curriculum, the ministry is providing educators with three educational explainer videos that provide answers to questions such as “Can Bitcoin replace the Euro?” “Is Bitcoin the currency of the future?” and “DO you have trust in your currency?”

According to the outline of the ministry, students would be required to compare Bitcoin (BTC) with fiat monies. This would eventually give students basic knowledge about Bitcoin (BTC), digital currencies, as well as their role in the traditional financial world. Since it is just an introduction to Bitcoin (BTC), students are not expected to become full-fledged digital currency experts after the class.
Nevertheless, educating young students about the fundamentals of Bitcoin and digital currencies would provide them with knowledge that evolves increasingly relevant as the adoption of digital currencies continues to increase.
France Foresees a Massive Crypto Adoption
Digital currencies are gradually gaining ground. When Bitcoin (BTC) first came into the crypto space, the digital currency faced many criticisms. Governments, firms, as well as individuals, criticized the coin. Many called it a fraud while some others said it was just a bubble. Many of them did not see Bitcoin lasting this long. However, it is over 10 years now and the digital currency is still very strong in the space. It has also penetrated several industries and pioneered many firms to create their own digital currencies.
France is seeing an enormous increase in the adoption of digital currencies with Keplerk – the French digital currency startup – relaunching its services. The startup relaunched its services in early October to accept Bitcoin (BTC) payments in more than 5,200 tobacco shops in France. In September, more than 25,000 POS of thirty French retailers including cosmetics store Sephora and sportswear giant Decathlon announced that they would start accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment in the first quarter of 2020.
