Bitcoin? It's cryptocurrency. Another way to pay for transactions in the digital age.

Yelp? It's a dandy tool for mapping and finding and rating stuff, such as restaurants, on your mobile device.

The gift? Said to be the first of its kind to be accepted by the University of Arkansas Foundation, which includes ASMSA among the campuses it supports. It's believed to be the first high school to receive such a gift.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

That's a nice story its cool someone will offer a crytocurrency course in a high school

Lowe’s gift will allow ASMSA to create a computer science seminar focusing on bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and collective computing, the first high school course focused entirely on the topics in Arkansas and the United States. Like many of ASMSA’s hallmark courses, the class will feature an interdisciplinary approach to the topic. A combination of mathematics, computer science, humanities and economics faculty will collaborate on the course development and delivery. The gift will also support other elements of the school’s computer science, digital learning and outreach programs.

Thanks for sharing it
