This is the second list that CoinDesk has come up with as last year they researched about the 46 U.S institutes and ranked the top 30 of them. According to CoinDesk, “Data is good. There is an absence of data on this space: Research and teaching can only get better if we track what academic institutions are offering.”

Watch in the video below the discussion about these top schools that offer FinTech and blockchain related degrees and the  impact of these institutes.  Reuben Youngblom, Stanford University Fellow and Cryptoeconomic Systems (MIT DCI) Managing Editor, discusses the key takeaways, including the methodology and importance of blockchain education.
