Coinbase ranks Cornell Computer Science as the global leader in crypto education. Regarding its selection process, Coinbase notes: "Cornell’s highly engaged student group [Cornell Blockchain Club] is just one of the criteria that landed the university at the top of the Coinbase 2019 Leaders in Crypto Education list, introduced this year as part of the second annual Coinbase Report on Higher Education." "To assess the current landscape of cryptocurrency in higher education," Coinbase says it "reviewed the course catalogs of the Top 50 global universities as ranked by US News and World Report. Our study focused on classes available to undergraduate and graduate-level students in 2019 for which information was available online." 

"Uniting the top 10 schools on the list — which in the U.S. include MIT, New York University, Stanford, and the University of California-Berkeley — is a deep commitment to crypto and blockchain at both the student and faculty level." For its part, "Cornell offers 14 classes on cryptocurrency and/or blockchain (up from 9 in 2018) and its IC3 group [The Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts] brings together researchers from top universities around the world." Speaking of, nine of the twenty universities that lead in crypto education are outside of the United States.
