Do you foresee a demand for lessons/tutoring children regarding the basics of technology, economics, and personal fiance of crypto-currencies? Should it be paired with lessons on programming language? I'm thinking it may fit in with homeschooling.

If so, how should one start setting-up a private course or a tutoring business based on these subjects? Any resources?

    If you subscribe to the ideology that BTC, a crypro-currency or a mixture of crypto-currencies are the future; will supplant fiat currencies and could be the next Internet - then I would say whole heatedly "yes!".

    If not, teaching someone about stores of value, exchanging value, basic economics, how to look after and manage money, cryptography, technology etc. all seem like really useful life lessons.

    I'd suggest working out what age range you want to target first and then start drawing up an outline of a syllabus...

    My family has developed a little tradition. Each newborn child gets 1 Bitcoin as a welcome gift. My brother will have a daughter next april. He is buying Bitcoin for her and I will also git Bitcoin to her as a gift.

    As you see, there is indeed a need to teach today's children. If you create a website, a game or something like that to introduce Bitcoin to children, I'd be very happy to use it to show to our family's kids.

    My brother and me create paper tabletop games. They can be freely downloaded at ocastudios.com. Perhaps we can help you to create something about bitcoin for children.

    Cool. I'm a frequent boardgamer, so I'd be interested. I'll let you know.
