When assisted senior living home The Preston of the Park Cities approached Owen Robertson to hold a course on crypto, nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and the Metaverse for their residents, the 21-year-old didn’t expect how quickly they’d pick up on the complex topics. 

Speaking to Cointelegraph, the Quai Network marketing associate, board member of the Mccombs blockchain initiative, and guest lecturer at the University of Texas said he was more than eager to assist when he was first approached to put a class together:

Regardless of what the crypto community has said about the course, the residents appear keen to learn more, says Robertson. 

“The residents seem very interested and are looking forward to participating in the next two classes taking place this summer,” said Robertson, adding he’s already been asked to teach two more classes, diving into more specific topics like the history of Bitcoin (BTC), NFT’s and the Metaverse:

“My hope is that over time, education about the original values that Bitcoin and Quai were founded with will help deepen the public’s understanding about the technology and make it more approachable.”

As a bonus, attendees will even get to walk away with their own NFT of the selfie taken in the first lesson.
