Excerpt from ValueWalk -- "I approached a colleague at NYU Law School who had been teaching Banking Law and had been covering a little bit of Bitcoin for a number of years and I proposed launching a course on this topic. That course, if you fast forward today, has 230 students and is the foundation of a whole program of FinTech courses that we have at Stern and the IOMS Department. This has caught the imagination of a lot of students, but also a lot of employers who are hiring many students in the space."
