One of India’s leading management education institute, SP Jain School of Global Management has announced the issuance of a blockchain-enabled certificate to its students. This latest initiative to issue blockchain enabled certificate will help to curb the menace of fake certificates.
The institute has issued almost 1,189 blockchain-based certificates which are now live on Ethereum blockchain. The prospective employers or authorities can directly verify the certificates, student’s credential and view student projects without the need to contact the institute.
At the validator’s end, the automated five-step blockchain validation is intuitive and doesn’t require deep technical know-how. The institute said in a statement:
“This will enable the recruiting organisations and other relevant bodies to validate the veracity of the certificates issued to a student.”
Nitish Jain, President of SP Jain School of Global Management commented, digital certificates are future. “There have been various attempts globally to issue certificates on the blockchain. But so far no one has captured the complete lifecycle of the certification,”
He also said that the student’s other records such as attendance or other private data are securely stored in the institute’s private blockchain and only certificates are made public on Ethereum blockchain.
The FinTech Director of the institute, Vikram Pandya said that, just by scanning the QR code, the validator can verify the records without requiring to install any additional application. The system is developed in partnership with Smart-Sense Consulting Solutions.
