The programme seeks to fill an important gap that exists today between the supply of and demand for academic knowledge in the area of digital currency. More specifically, while the interest in digital currencies has skyrocketed in the past few years, academic institutions have been slow to implement academic programs that cover the need for educating specialists in the area, addressing it in its entirety (technical and financial aspects alike).

The programme in Digital Currency (Distance Learning) fills this gap and positions the University of Nicosia at the forefront of academia in this area on a global scale.

The degree is offered online to students worldwide and the first course in the degree pathway, “DFIN-511: Introduction to Digital Currencies”, is available for free as an open enrollment MOOC course to anyone interested in learning more about the fundamental principles of digital currency.
