"Trusted Diploma" Helps Students and Universities to Store and Access Valid Credentials
TBILISI, Georgia, Aug. 2, 2018 /CNW/ - Blockchain continues to move beyond fintech and empowers other industries with the secure and transparent stack. A unique collaboration of Emercoin and BTU provided education system with verifiable diplomas on an encrypted and secure app. Finally, businesses can hire graduates with crystal-clear certificates.
Collaboration of Emercoin and BTU (Tbilisi Business and Technology University) addresses a complicated social issue in both developed and developing countries: while hiring graduates, businesses can't fully rely on online displays of education credentials as they are increasingly viewed as unreliable proofs of work.
To combat manipulation in the education system, Emercoin developed open-source "Trusted Diploma " platform. With its help schools, businesses and graduates can validate the online accuracy and authenticity of education credentials, as well as share verifiable diplomas and other certificates on an encrypted and secure app. "We urge everyone to join our effort, which will improve professional services and protect people from dangerous fraud in the health care, legal, real estate and other sectors," says Kostiantyn Bigus, MP of Emercoin.
"Much like the little 'check mark' on Twitter or Facebook profiles, companies like LinkedIn or Indeed.com could use this to validate the data represented on profiles, ensuring that data is tamper-proof and accurate," says Emercoin advisor and venture capitalist Bill Tai. Through secure, distributed blockchain services the company has managed to come up with flexible, user-friendly and available for everyone technological solution. Trusted Diploma is already used in Business and Technology University - which opened in 2016 at Silicon Valley Tbilisi to offer students innovative approaches to learning.
"We are very happy to work with the innovative Emercoin team on this crucially important project. The Trusted Diploma platform will help our school build a secure and immutable database of certificates, which will help our graduates as they pursue successful careers," said Mikheil Batiashvili, the BTU rector and Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia.
