I think this is great news and publicity for Bitcoin. As mentioned, these are students attending one of the most prestigious universities for technology in the U.S. Some might be dumped, sure. But for the most part I would say the majority of these kids are not hurting for money, and they will see far greater potential for their small BTC holdings than just a hundred quick bucks. All of them will probably learn the protocol of it, and I could Definitely see some new programs, websites, apps, and companies being started from this event. I would be interested to see how many of them are already BTC users/holders.

It would be nice if they submitted a challenge to grow the coin into something substantial... with some type of incentive.

the point of having an economy is to exchange for things you see value in. There in no need for mandatory security class and if it is all spent on beer that just shows they value beer

FUUU Ok I am officially jealous of every single MIT student I may have more but in a few years they will be the richest alumni

lol... after 5 years, when Bitcoin crosses the $100,000 mark, these same MIT students (ex-students by then) will be jealous of you, and you can show off your wealth to them.  Grin

Ha-ha I guess that's also true but mumble my uni wasn't innovative and gave its students 100 dollars in 2014 dollars in BTC while they were ^_^

This particular news story has been widely publicized... Just searched in Google and found more than 5,000 articles talking about it. Can't ask for anything better, at these testing times.  Grin

ITA! At the same time it's good PR for Bitcoin.
