Upload and Verify Academic Certifications over RecordsKeeper
Academic certificates can be easily issued and verified using the RecordsKeeper ledger. Educational authorities can issue a certificate and give the user a receipt which they can share with any third party to prove the authenticity of the certificate. When the third party receives this receipt, they can easily check its authenticity on the RecordsKeeper ledger.
Additionally, RecordsKeeper provides the following features:
- Transparency – Both the parties who are interested in viewing academic credentials can see them on the RecordsKeeper blockchain. This ensures that only people with ownership rights can make decisions about who has access to this information.
- Immutability – Blockchains are the most secure source for storing the information right now. They rely on the integrity of the network to ensure the authenticity of the stored information. Thus, academic certificates stored on the RecordsKeeper blockchain are immutable.
- Disintermediation – Using the RecordsKeeper blockchain to store and share academic credentials helps us bypass the need for a central controlling authority that manages and keeps records. This makes the overall process of storing credentials more trustworthy as there are no middlemen involved.
- Collaboration – Once the information becomes available on the RecordsKeeper blockchain, it is much easier to ascribe ownership, and therefore safer to share the information without the fear of this information being compromised.
