What is the peculiarity of cryptocurrency donations? David Fuhriman, the chief financial officer of The Campanile Foundation (TCF) said that 1% of the total digital assets will be withdrawn quarterly to fund the campus’s operations. The initiative aims to find out how the university can interact with cryptocurrencies.

SDSU reported a philanthropist had asked the university to keep his donations in bitcoins instead of converting them instantly into cash. Fuhriman said:

“If the value of bitcoin goes up, then this endowment could last forever. We believe over the long run that this could be a really good benefit to SDSU.”
