Success Stories

Akarsh Agarwal
Nirma University '17

Thank you to the Blockchain Education Network, MIT Bitcoin Club, and MIT Digital Currency Initiative for making my dream come true by sponsoring five students from India to attend the MIT Bitcoin Expo. The struggles each student faced was insurmountable with visas, agencies, and flights. But thanks to BEN we pulled through. The fire to build community, continue learning, and build a decentralized world burns within us.

Jessie Xiong
University of Delaware '17

Through shared experiences online and in person, engaging with other BEN students changed me for the better. I would not have been exposed to any of my current influences, role models, and mentors if it wasn’t for the Blockchain Education Network.
