This year, Asia investing in cryptocurrencies has become much more popular.
While many sought-after jobs in the crypto industry do not necessarily require a formal degree, many global universities have begun to offer degree opportunities in this field.
A ranking of the top 50 blockchain universities was recently published, in which well-known universities dominate Asia and European universities rise to the top. Berkeley and MIT are the top rated US schools.
The rankings look at aspects such as courses, research results, blockchain services on campus (such as student clubs and research centers), employment results, academic reputation, and academic reputation.
Overall, the National University of Singapore tops the table due to its many blockchain research centers, regular blockchain themed conferences, numerous blockchain clubs, corporate partnerships, and master’s degrees in digital financial technology.
The Asian representatives among the top 10 also include the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Tsinghua University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
RMIT in Melbourne took second place; European representatives included the University of Zurich, University College London (UCL) and ETH Zurich.
The best US schools are Berkeley (third) and MIT (fifth). Cornell, who finished second last year, is now 17th. Stanford, which was fourth in 2020, is now 12. Harvard, which was fifth last year, is now 49. This reflects stronger competition this time around and schools with a general reputation cuts don’t always do best when it comes to blockchain.

This is the second year that CoinDesk has created this ranking. Last year they analyzed 46 schools in the US and placed the top 30. This year they analyzed 230 schools worldwide.
Research and teaching get better and better if we keep an eye on what the scientific institutions have to offer.
The aim of this ranking is to promote the exchange of best practices in teaching and other campus services.
