California’s Draper University announced they’re now accepting bitcoins for tuition payments.
Bitcoins, if you’re wondering, are roughly described as a non-regulated currency that’s hidden around the Internet. They can be found by using some sort of magic math and then traded for goods, services, and even government-sanctioned money.
Considering they can be acquired without spending a cent, Draper’s new payment policy could be the answer for the cash-strapped and student loan drenched.
If you’re not flush with bitcoins, the University also accepts barter, profit sharing, and advertising trades.
Tuition runs 95 hundred dollars a semester, and the university still offers a traditional “buy it now” option.
As the school isn’t accredited it can’t give you anything fancy like a bachelors or masters degree, but it can award you with an entrepreneurial superhero certificate.
The school is the creation of venture capitalist Tim Draper and follows a curriculum designed to give students powers.
Courses named Truth and Justice and Speed & Strength teach skills including negotiating, speed-reading, and martial arts.
