A university in Cyprus offers courses in the metaverse but, the students must have an NFT to attend it. What's more, Binance, the world's largest crypto exchange, is offering scholarships to study there.

The Department of Digital Innovation and the Institute for the Future (IFF) of the University of Nicosia (UNIC) recently announced their Open Metaverse Initiative aimed at academic, research, and policy issues relating to the metaverse. The course emphasises on open public systems and standards, and is supported by Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao.


In a tweet on Tuesday, Zhao said that such courses that include the metaverse and NFTs are an indication that "the world is moving forward".
