Student debt – who needs it! Tuition costs have soared the past couple of years and it’s no secret that no matter how financially-savvy you are, you still run up against unavoidable expenses like textbooks, meals, and on or off-campus housing costs. Even two-for-one pizzas cost more!
That’s why North American social media and technology company Mijem Newcomm Technology Inc. (Mijem) recently announced a new tuition scholarship giveaway for eligible post-secondary students residing in the Continental U.S for a total scholarship prize of $5,000 — half in cash and half in Bitcoin SV — thanks to a partnership with the Bitcoin Association for BSV.
Mijem is a community buy-and-sell app designed for Gen Z, college, and university students. Centred around campuses and their surrounding communities, Mijem provides a safe and convenient platform to buy-and-sell goods and services such as textbooks, clothing and electronics, or to find a rideshare to get home for the weekend.
Mijem was created by students, for students – all of whom had similar needs like mini fridges, or a couch, and who were based in the same place (on campus) where it made it simple and easy for them to easily exchange items (what Mijem calls “Gems”).
Mijem was also created with sustainability front of mind.
According to the 2019 Clean Clothes Campaign, three out of 5 fashion items end up in a landfill. Selling and buying pre-loved items on Mijem helps you reduce your carbon footprint which is good for you and good for the planet.
Plus, with every $1 USD transacted through the app, Mijem users earn rewards points and have the option of building their crypto portfolio through an integrated digital wallet that allows them to redeem points for Bitcoin SV.
Curious about cryptocurrency? You’re not alone.
According to a recent survey by Capitalize, over 50% of Gen Z believe cryptocurrencies will become widely used in the future, and about 17% of Gen Z are already transacting with cryptocurrency in some way.
The Mijem app has been installed by thousands of students across more than 1,500 colleges and universities in North America and has recently been updated with new features and functionality to help students connect, transact, and build wealth in a sustainable manner.
With the Mijem/Bitcoin Association for BSV tuition scholarship, students will not only have an extra $2,500 cash for their education, but $2,500 in Bitcoin SV that can be used to purchase goods and services anywhere BSV is accepted. For student entrepreneurs, it’s a great way to start to build a profile in cryptocurrency with a secure blockchain, and enter the rapidly growing currency market of the future.
The app is available for free on the Apple or Google Play stores or from Mijem’s website.
The sweepstakes is open to Mijem users who are eligible students. To be considered eligible for a chance to win the scholarship, students must be legal residents of the Continental United States who are of the age of majority in their state of residence at the time of entry, and who are enrolled in or accepted for enrolment at a post-secondary college or university in the United States or Canada in the Summer 2022 or Fall 2022. The giveaway runs for 60 days, ending on June 13, 2022 at 11:59 EDST. Winners will be chosen by random draw from eligible entries on or around June 27, 2022, and announced on Mijem’s social media channels. No purchase is necessary.
