Session description: I discuss the incorporation of trading in real cryptoassets in an undergraduate student-managed fund. To my knowledge, after examining the programs at institutions with real-money SMFs, our program is the first, and possibly still the only, that supports this trading, with a portfolio worth of over half a million U.S. dollars.
