MIT Club Hosts Largest-Ever Student Bitcoin Event

(CoinDesk) On Feb. 11, more than 200 students crammed into a 125-person lecture hall at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to listen to entrepreneur Jeremy Allaire speak about Bitcoin.

It was standing room only as the Circle founder and CEO informed the crowd of his background, his company and his passion for the fledgling industry for nearly 90 minutes.

Although the MIT Bitcoin Club was only officially recognized by the university on Jan. 1, it is already one of the largest student-run cryptocurrency groups in the country.
