“We are excited to be partnering with Mijem to supply financial aid to students through this tuition scholarship and to introduce them to the world of blockchain technology and the powerful utility of BSV– the world’s only public blockchain capable of scaling to meet the needs of enterprise and government. Fostering the development of young talent is of vital importance to Bitcoin Association for BSV, as this is a crucial step in building the skills necessary to create the blockchain-based applications of the future.”

According to a recent survey by Capitalize, over 50% of Gen Z believe crypto currencies will become widely used in the future, and about 17% of the entire cryptocurrency market is already being occupied by Gen Z.
A notable benefit to Bitcoin SV is how it transacts quickly and inexpensively, scales easily, and is far more environmentally friendly than many other cryptos – all features that are important to Gen Z.
The contest is open to Mijem users who are also eligible students. No purchase is necessary. To be considered eligible for a chance to win the scholarship, students must be legal residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) who are of the age of majority in their province of residence at the time of entry, and who are enrolled in or accepted for enrolment at a post-secondary college or university in the United States or Canada in the Summer 2022 or Fall 2022. The giveaway runs for 60 days, ending on June 13, 2022 at 11:59 EDST. Winners will be chosen by random draw from eligible entries on or around June 27, 2022, and announced on Mijem’s social media channels.
