Wharton accepts crypto payments for blockchain program tuition fees

Wharton Business School is now accepting crypto as a method of payment for their courses. The school joins the growing trend of universities across the world to adopt cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

The “wharton cryptocurrency course” is a program offered by the Wharton School of Business. It teaches students about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. The course accepts crypto payments for tuition fees.


The Ivy League University of Pennsylvania is the latest institution to embrace cryptocurrency, but there’s a catch.

According to Bloomberg, the Wharton School, one of the most prestigious business schools in the United States, would accept Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies as payment for tuition. However, adoption is confined to its upcoming online blockchain and digital asset initiative, which will begin in January. 

The six-week curriculum, titled Economics of Blockchain and Digital Assets, costs $3,800 and is expected to draw thousands of students each year. To accept crypto payments, the Wharton School will employ Coinbase Commerce, the e-commerce platform of the United States-based crypto exchange.

Wharton is presently giving an introduction course to cryptocurrency and blockchain via the online education platform Coursera, as part of a larger course on financial technology, or fintech.

According to Scaramucci, anybody who analyzes Bitcoin ends up investing in it.

The business school made headlines earlier this year after receiving a $5 million Bitcoin donation. In May, an unidentified philanthropist donated $5 million (approximately 118 BTC). According to reports, the Wharton School promptly converted the contribution to cash, which would be worth more than $7 million at today’s Bitcoin pricing.

The World Economic Forum has joined with the Wharton School’s Blockchain and Digital Asset Project, according to Cointelegraph. The initiative, which is being headed by Professor Kevin Werbach, attempts to address the commercial and legal elements of distributed ledger technology.

The “penn bitcoin donation” is a new program that allows students at the Wharton School of Business to pay their tuition fees in crypto. The school accepts crypto payments for blockchain program tuition fees.
