French High School Students Will Learn About Bitcoin And Crypto

France is about to introduce an educational module to its high school curriculum that covers Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrencies.
In June, the French Ministry of National Education amended its study plan to incorporate the world’s largest cryptocurrency. French educators are expected to teach an introductory course that will assist students in understanding the impact has on the French and global economies.
The ministry further provides teachers with three educational explainer videos that address questions such as “Is the currency of the future?”, “Can Bitcoin replace the Euro?” and “Do you have trust in your currency?”
According to the ministry’s outline, students will be required to compare with fiat currencies, which will eventually lead to basic knowledge about Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and their role in the traditional financial world.
As it is only an introductory course to Bitcoin, students are not expected to leave the classroom as full-fledged experts. However, teaching young students some of the ins-and-outs of and cryptocurrencies will provide them with knowledge that grows increasingly relevant as cryptocurrencies become more widely adopted. 
France and adoption
France is seeing a surge in adoption with the French startup Keplerk relaunching its service at the beginning of October to accept BTC payments in over 5,200 tobacco shops in France. 
In late September, over 25,000 points-of-sale of 30 French retailers including sportswear giant Decathlon and cosmetics store Sephora announced that they will start accepting payments by early 2020.
