Major educational institutions such as Harvard University, Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dartmouth College, and the University of North Carolina have each invested in cryptocurrency funds through their respective endowment funds according to a report from a technology news site The Information.

The publication mentioned an unspecified source familiar with these investments as saying that these university endowments have capitalized tens of millions of dollars in these funds, which was invested in cryptocurrencies and emerging cryptocurrency companies.

Harvard University has invested a portion of its $39.2 billion in cryptocurrency, the world’s largest university endowment fund to date.
