Back in 2018, a group of students and advisers from various universities created Student Coin, a blockchain framework designed with the goal of teaching college students how crypto works.

After languishing in obscurity, their subreddit saw a spike of new membership during their initial coin offering (ICO), landing it on the list of the 50 fastest-growing communities this month, according to Subreddit Stats.

Student Coin makes it possible for students and colleges to create their own tokens, trade crypto, and even issue loans via cryptocurrency.
