Over 85% of institutional BTC owners plan to increase investment in crypto assets
A new study by cryptocurrency fund Nickel Digital says that 40% of institutional investors that hold digital currencies, purchased BTC to hedge against inflation. More than 85% of cryptocurrency holders intend to increase investment in these assets over the next two years.
56% of survey participants are confident in a slight rate increase of the main cryptocurrency. And 21% of respondents believe that bitcoin will show significant growth this year.
“There is also growing optimism about the sector’s infrastructure improving, and this too will result in more mainstream investors entering this market,” added Anatoly Crachilov, co-founder and CEO of Nickel Digital.
Students in Georgia, USA, will be taught about crypto at high school
High school students in Georgia, USA, will be taught about crypto after a new financial literacy program was approved by the Georgia House of Representatives.
The bill for financial literacy for high students passed by the Georgia House of Representatives includes cryptocurrency. The program outlines 16 areas of financial literacy to be studied by students in the tenth or eleventh grade.
Along with cryptocurrency, there are more traditional subjects in the program, such as balancing a checkbook, investing, money management, loan applications, and tax assessments.
Georgia’s bill is not the first time cryptocurrency has been included in a high school curriculum. Back in 2019, the French education ministry implemented a Bitcoin and cryptocurrency module to its high school curriculum.
