The University of Nicosia will be the first in the world to accept the payment of fees in bitcoin
Bitcoin becomes less virtual, to become a currency in almost all respects. There is even a university – the ‘ University of Nicosia , Cyprus – who will accept it for payment of fees is the first time ever in the world that such a thing happens. Think about that until two years ago, when the value of virtual currency had dropped to two dollars, everyone gave up for dead and they had already announced the end. Then, a year ago, the unexpected recovery, and today it seems to travel more than $ 400, reaching in some cases even at an altitude of 700.
