This research study aims to investigate the causal relationship between contested virtual currency practices and the expansion of educational opportunities. The use of virtual currencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, has gained substantial attention in recent years due to their potential to reshape financial systems. However, their impact on educational practices and the subsequent expansion of educational opportunities remains underexplored.
To address this research gap, we will employ a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative analysis of educational data and qualitative interviews with key stakeholders. The study will focus on diverse educational settings, including K-12 schools, higher education institutions, and online learning platforms. Through this comprehensive examination, we seek to uncover the potential benefits, challenges, and complexities associated with virtual currency practices in education.
Our research will contribute to the existing literature by shedding light on the various ways virtual currencies are being utilized in educational settings. We will explore the causal relationship between contested practices involving virtual currencies and the expansion of educational opportunities. By identifying the potential positive and negative impacts, we can provide evidence-based recommendations for policymakers, educators, and administrators seeking to navigate this rapidly evolving landscape.
