Bitcoin for Books: MIT CO-OP Now Accepting Bitcoin
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been one of the most accepting universities when it comes to Bitcoin for some time now. The on-campus Bitcoin Project is very active and the Kendall Square Bookstore already features a Bitcoin exchange inside the store but now also accepts Bitcoin as payment through BitPay. Earlier this year the Bitcoin Project announced a plan to give every MIT undergraduate $100 in Bitcoin. This new arrangement with the CO-OP will now give the students a handy place to spend those free Bitcoins and save money on books and materials at the same time.
