Mi Primer Bitcoin’s new diploma program is expected to expand opportunities for Bitcoin learning in high schools that adopt it.
Mi Primer Bitcoin, a bitcoin education program based in El Salvador, has announced a new, improved degree program in English.
According to Dalia Platt, Program Manager for Mi Primer Bitcoin, “The goal is to change the way people learn about Bitcoin. The aim is to make the course interactive, fun, creative, accessible and easy to understand for everyone, using examples that can reach and impact every corner of the world.
THE student workbook shared with Bitcoin Magazine shows topics ranging from “What is Money?” to “Navigating Scarcity in a Growing Economy,” and more.
According to Platt, the organization has grown exponentially. “We trained over 10,000 students this year, 25 times more than last year,” she said. “As the first Bitcoin nation, El Salvador has the unique opportunity to lead the way in Bitcoin education.”
The program, first covered by Bitcoin Magazine in June 2022, launched with over 35 high school students receiving their Bitcoin diplomas. Since then, the educational mission of Mi Primer Bitcoin has not changed. Platt describes how she “believes our new degree program has already played a significant role in achieving (leading bitcoin education) and we are continually improving the course by incorporating feedback we receive from current and past students as well as teachers. . “
Bitcoin education is a critical part of adoption worldwide. Without a good knowledge of both the current functioning of the world’s monetary systems and the new protocol offered by Bitcoin, one cannot properly make the decision to adopt Bitcoin. It is only after experiencing money as it is, and money as it could be, that Bitcoin’s full potential is revealed. Programs like Mi Primer Bitcoin offer this education and learning to unlock this potential.
