The Blockchain Education Network (BEN) has had a busy fall semester introducing, educating, and giving away Bitcoin. The initiative believes wholeheartedly that students should understand cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Now the organization is ramping up its efforts to educate the academic masses, offering a bounty to students who help build a syllabus.

The team behind BEN says it often hears questions like “How do I get started? What should I start reading/watching/doing?” in Bitcoin and blockchain tech. Additionally, the group says it wants to answer these questions directly with a syllabus for the masses, titled “Blockchain Education Month” (BEM).
The collaboratively-built blockchain education course will have six chapters, divided into modules containing a “7-minute script, Powerpoint, and video.” Furthermore, BEN will pay contributors to help the project move forward.
