Bitcoin is a savings technology that is nascent money. It’s changing the world and putting hard money in the hands of people across the globe.
Bitcoin takes the power out of the hands of the central banks, thus creating secure and strong money you can save, invest, and use.

On the 13th anniversary of the first block being mined, Students For Liberty wanted to give back by providing training to Bitcoin enthusiasts across the globe.


The Academy will consist of three lectures and discussions over two weeks. You will have the chance to interact with our experts, learn about the history of Bitcoin, why it matters for human rights and privacy, as well as discuss how to make it useful in your life.
