Academic Credential Verification Technique Using Blockchain
Academic credentials are highly crucial for an individual. With the help of it, one's academic progress is determined. Whether it is to apply for a job, higher education, applying for a passport or visa, academic credentials are one of the essential documents.
But nowadays, fake academic credentials can be created and hence verification of the credential by the issuer is mandatory. Verification of academic credentials involve both the candidate and the certificate issuer and takes days or weeks to verify the submitted credential. Hence, employers/ institutions and candidates need to spend their valuable time for each request.
Saving the digital certificates on the Blockchain solves this problem. The Blockchain platform allows transactions to be immutable and openly verifiable; these Blockchain assets are used for building digital certificates, which are convenient to validate and anti-counterfeit.
