Double success for Perse pupil with digital currency project
30 Jan 2018
Vikram Singh (Year 11) has received a double helping of success with his research into the digital currency bitcoin.
He carried out an investigation into whether bitcoin or other crypto (digital) forms of currency could replace traditional money in the future as part of his Higher Project Qualification in Year 10.
Vikram went on to give a poster presentation of his findings at the Young Scientists’ Journal Conference at Queens’ College last October.
He has now earned a Gold CREST Award from the British Science Association’s flagship scheme for young scientists for his project.
On top of that, Vikram also entered his study into the Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers competition.
His work has impressed judges enough to invite Vikram to present his investigation at the Big Bang national finals, which take place at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre from 13 to 15 March.
Listen to Vikram talk more about his research and his conclusions about crypto currencies below.
