The Importance of Getting Students Involved in Cryptocurrency Early

Executive Brief

When they're young and starting out, students are likely to think about marriage, housing, and working conditions. Basically, small things that make a great impact on their own futures, but do little to advance the future of the world.

As students, we should not merely be involved in the future; we should help to build it. Right now, digital currency is pushing our financial world forward in ways we never thought possible. Through further integration of things like the blockchain and assorted altcoins, fiat currency is beginning to take on a rather "ancient status." As those likely to run the world, students should become involved in cryptocurrency in order to build on it. Digital currency is likely the way of the future, and students should understand it to make sure the future comes brightly and with ease.

Students should not merely be involved in the future… They should help to build it.

When we’re young, we see ourselves too much as mere “elements” of the future world. We often think, “Who will I marry? What job will I have? What state do I want to live in?” These questions are all taking the future into account, but don’t go terribly far in defining it. As students, it’s our job to be asking things like, “How can I make a difference in the world? What can I do to influence future generations and keep things moving forward at a steady pace?” These questions keep us thinking, and eventually we receive our answers. At some point we actually wind up building part of the future, and not just living through it.

Digital currency is considered by many to be the way of the future. As e-payment platforms, bitcoin and the blockchain continue to trek along and make their marks, fiat currency is almost becoming a thing of the past. When the computer came along in the 70s and 80s, the younger generations were there to accept it. Then they took things one step further and built on it. We now enjoy the Internet, apps, and other innovative items that make a massive difference in our lives.

The time has come for younger generations to move forward again, this time with digital currency. The students of today are likely to be running the world in 15 to 20 years. They shouldn’t be involved in digital currency simply for the sake of using it or understanding it; they should be involved to take it further. Learning from its technology could lead to advancements such as heavier implementation of the blockchain and higher security. Students have the power to strengthen digital currency and push it to heights its fiscal founders could have only dreamed of.

This is where programs such as CRISP (Cryptocurrency Investment Saving Plan) for Students can play a role. CRISP offers students a firsthand opportunity to utilize and learn about developing cryptocurrencies by giving approximately 100 DNotes to participants without their having to pay for them. They then earn 10 DNotes a month afterwards. This ceases once the total reaches 500. Known as the money of the future, DNotes claims to hold significant capital appreciation and is stored in an offline cold storage vault, ensuring top of the line security for its users. Funds stored in the vault also come with a 100 percent fund match guarantee. The primary goal of the plan is to create an opportunity for students to not only experience cryptocurrency up close and personal, but save enough along the way for their educations and life goals.

Those of us on a path of study are likely to simply look at the future and wonder what it will bring in its wake. Perhaps the time has to come for us to ask, “What can we offer the future?”
