Donations in Shiba Inu, Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies are now accepted by Quincy University
Quincy University has become the latest university to jump on the cryptocurrency train by accepting donations in Bitcoin, Shiba Inu and Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies
Quincy University, a private Franciscan university in Illinois, has started accepting cryptocurrency donations.
It accepts contributions totaling 32 cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Tron (TRX), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Shiba Inu (SHIB) are among the options available.
Matt Bergman, Senior Director of Advancement at Quincy University, highlighted the cryptocurrency industry’s explosive growth in his statement, predicting that it will not slow down “soon”:
QU is always looking for ways to make it easy for donors to support our students and initiatives.
In 2014, the University of Puget Sound became the first US university to accept a cryptocurrency donation. The alumnus donated 14.5 Bitcoins to the educational institution, which were worth about $10,000 at the time, with the help of payment processing company BitPay.
The number of universities that have embraced cryptocurrencies has soared since then. The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School made it possible for blockchain program participants to pay for their tuition in Bitcoin.
