Digital Diploma's for University of Exeter
Exeter University's launched a small pilot with its Financial Technology MSc class. The pilot enabled students to own their certification without reliance on external parties.
Today, the verification process of digital certificates is cumbersome, and authenticity services are not interoperable due to separate private databases.
Integrating certificate issuance software with the blockchain allows for an interoperable, trustless system that combats fraud. Students can now be the 'owner' of their certificates and prove that Exeter University issues the diploma on the blockchain.
The core strength of the solution is that there is no intermediary involved with the authentication or permanence of the certificate.
