As cryptocurrency adoption increases globally, New York Mayor-Elect Eric Adams believes schools should include cryptocurrency in their school syllabus, where students need to be taught about it.

Adams has been openly advocating the adoption of cryptocurrencies and asserted that schools should incorporate cryptocurrency in their studies. Schools must be open to teach the technology and to teach this new way of thinking.

While speaking at CNN's State of the Union, Adams described cryptocurrency as a new way of paying for goods and services throughout the entire globe, urging local schools to equip students for the new way of thinking brought about by blockchain technology and digital assets. 

Recently, he had said that he will be taking his first three paychecks in Bitcoin and also indicated plans to encourage New York businesses to accept Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies as a form of payment.

Adams wants New York to remain a center of innovation, no matter what that innovation is.

During an interview with Bloomberg, Adam has said that he is exploring opportunities for setting up a city crypto coin in New York similar to MiamiCoin. 

If crypto is included in the school curricula, New York wouldn’t be the first city in the US to do so. In March this year, The Georgia House of Representatives passed a bill calling for state education officials to implement a financial literacy program including crypto in high schools.
