The university Simon Fraser located in Vancouver Canada, has announced Bitcoin’s vending machines are going to be installed for the students use on their 3 campuses.
The reason behind these installation is to allow students to get used to the Bitcoin technology. A very wise initiative to widen the use of Bitcoin in Canadian territory. Libraries in all 3 of these campuses will now accept Bitcoin as a method of payment for students who wishes to use the currency in order to purchase their books.
It is our mission to challenge and engage students and provide them with learning opportunities not only inside the classroom but also outside,” says Mark McLaughlin, SFU’s executive director of ancillary services. “SFU has one of North America’s most prominent Bitcoin student clubs and they have asked us to help introduce Bitcoin to the SFU community. As a university focused on innovation, we want to provide our students the opportunity to try digital currencies like Bitcoin through AVMs and within the bookstore and other retail locations on campus.
