Problems& Solutions

Problems that we solve.

Using fake credentials in order to get ahead is not a new phenomenon. As long as there is competition for jobs and admission to higher education, there will be people who are willing to take such shortcuts. Regularly, articles in University World News often report new cases. In summary, we had four main problems to solve.

  • Huge fraud in academic and professional credentials.
  • Higher education candidates (Masters and PhDs) usually miss the registration deadline because of the delay in the normal verification process.
  • The high cost of securing credential paper materials. (watermarks, special printing equipment... etc)
  • Long verification time, in some cases it could reach up to weeks to verify a candidate's credentials.

Blockcred --> No Fraud

The employer will be sure about the credential that he will verify, as long as it was stored on the Blockchain, it can never be tampered with, nor removed.

Blockcred --> 90% Lower Cost

No need to waste more money on watermarks or special printing equipments for certificate materials. Credentials are now issued securely. Printing it on a normal A4 paper is enough.

Blockcred --> On-Spot Verification

Scan the QR Code of the certificate .. Get the verification result immediately .. NO MORE!

Identity philosophy in Blockcred

Blockchain technology can be used to create a platform that protects individuals’ identities from theft and massively reduced fraudulent activities. Blockcred utilizes this concept to stop fraud in academic credentials. Here’s how.

Why is an identity not an account?

On the internet of today, an account you create for an application stays with the company providing that app. This company keeps data you enter about yourself and data about how you use their application. When you close your account, the company retains that data. In decentralized, blockchain software, identity is a combination of username and key. The data associated with that identity stays with it, this means applications or central authorities do not keep our control access to your data. You give a DApp access to your data but when you decide to no longer use that application, you withdraw that access. The DApp developer can no longer access information about you.

UNIVERSITY DASHBOARD

Easy to use dashboard is one of Blockcred's secrets.

One of the great achievements we had by running a pilot with one of the highest ranked university in Egypt is we delivered a high-quality dashboard from the user experience point of view.

  • Fully admission dashboard system.
  • Easy-to-use course creator system.
  • User-defined access control system.
  • Once-click issuing approval.
  • Built-in certificate PDF creator.
  • One/Multiple certificates preparation.

How it works?

Simple, easy and effective.

01.The university publishes the course in its own store and invites the student to apply for the course’s credential.

02.The student accepts the invitation and applies to the course by his Blockstack ID to achieve the certificate

03.The university hashes the credential onto the Blockchain and signs the transaction by its own private key.

04.The university sends the credential verification link to the student after storing it in its own GAIA storage.

05.The student gets the digital credential and stores it in his GAIA storage (wallet). No one can tamper with or remove.

06.The student can invite any verifier (by the verifier's Blockstack ID) to check and verify his credential info.

07.The verifier checks the Blockchain to verify credential information and be sure about the issuer.

08.The student can invite the employer to verify his career history by sending his public key (Blockstak ID) to him.

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is a distributed database existing on multiple computers at the same time. ... In addition, cryptography is used to guarantee synchronisation of copies of the blockchain on each computer (or node) in the network.

Blockchain technology is a revolution in systems of record. Bitcoin is history’s first permanent, decentralized, global, trustless ledger of records. Since its invention, entrepreneurs in industries around the world have come to understand the implications of this development.

Blockchain is important because it brings trust to peer to peer networks. A primary reason banks exist is to act as a trusted third party to transactions. Many industry leaders have already achieved significant business benefits, including greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency and speed of transactions, and reduced costs.

A database running on the World Wide Web is most often using a client-server network architecture. A user (client) with permissions associated with their account can change entries that are stored on a centralized server. By changing the ‘master copy’, whenever a user accesses a database using their computer, they will get the updated version of the database entry. Control of the database remains with administrators, allowing for access and permissions to be maintained be a central authority. This is not at all the same as with a blockchain. For a blockchain database, each participant maintains, calculates and updates new entries into the database. All nodes work together to ensure they are all coming to the same conclusions, providing in-built security for the network.
