Asa part ofa pilot program, graduates of the Frankfurt School courses on blockchain technology would be able to prove their triumphantcompletion of the course with a certificationsecuredon a blockchain itself.
For thepilot program, FSis functioningwith Consensys which is one ofthe leadingsoftwarecorporations within theblockchain field. Consensys has developed adecentralisedapp [DApp] forallegedself-sovereign identities,wherebycertificatesaren’tessentiallyrevealedon a blockchain,howeveronly copied to the computersof variousnetwork participants.
The copiesare oftenencryptedin order thatthe owner ofa selectednodewithin theindividualnetworkwould selectaindependentbasisthat whichcertificates he or she wishes to make visible toothernetwork participants. Thus, the blockchainreallymakes credentials physicallyportableforthe scholars.
ResearchAssociate and the Head of thepilot program at the FS Blockchain Center ’Veronika Kütt,’ findsthe chance to digitallyrepresentcertificates as ”fascinating”:
“Wedopioneer work here. Our studentsrealizeit a privilege to beevolvedin new technology atanearly stage.it is abitjust like theprogramming ofthe primarypublicwebsiteswithin themid-’90s.”
Adding further, the Head of the FS Blockchain Center ‘Professor Philipp Sandner,’ stated that:
“With the blockchainyou’ll be able tostore personalinformation,likea CV oran identification card, asin a picture book. With our projectwe have a tendency toshowhoweversimpleand comfythat wouldbe for the users. “
This makes the FSthe primary educationinstitutionin the countryto provideits students blockchain-based certificates. The new technologyis additionallybeing employedinSwitzerland,at the University ofBasel.
