Bitcoin is a new technology that’s revolutionizing the transactional economy. As the world’s leading research institution, MIT should at the forefront of Bitcoin innovation. To this end, we’re giving every MIT undergraduate $100 in Bitcoin this fall.To support the development of interesting projects, we’re launching the MIT BitComp to inspire and motivate MIT students and alumni to develop Bitcoin related apps. Throughout the summer, we’ll distribute over $15,000 in prizes to reward the most impressive projects.
Throughout the summer we’re going to have a series of hack nights open to the community. These will be a relaxed environment to hang out, code, and learn something new.This is a continuation of our efforts to bring Bitcoin to MIT. In early May, we held the MIT Bitcoin Expo which had over 400 students in attendence. All of the talks are recorded and available online./ ..login error
