On this week’s episode of CoinGeek Conversations, Dr. Jack Rogers talks about the University of Exeter’s Bitcoin teaching, the evolution of money and the role Bitcoin plays.

The University of Exeter launched a Bitcoin module, called Bitcoin, Money and Trust, in 2018 after a high demand from students to learn about Bitcoin.

Dr. Rogers agrees with the assertion that “a new technology that allows people to potentially pay each other without using existing fiat-based systems” has indeed raised fundamental questions.

Jack believes the disruption in central banking was inevitable eventually: “I think this stuff, central bank, digital currencies and things that you see now, maybe it was coming anyway… I think the emergence of Bitcoin and all the hype and everything has kind of brought that forward.”

The BSV Blockchain and its focus on micropayments has been center stage over the last few weeks in the world of online gambling with the emergence of the Jake Paul promotion BetR.  That venture raised around $50 million and is being referred to as the TikTokification of betting.
