Georgia Tech will be the first college to accept bitcoins as payment at concession stands in school stadiums.
The crypto-currency is gaining more and more of a foothold throughout the world, and its parent company, BitPay, is even sponsoring a postseason game this year between the ACC and American Athletic Conference with the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl.
