Certificate Verification on Blockchain

Mukul Taneja | Yashi Bindal | Vinay Kumar Saini [2]

Abstract: Blockchain is converting internet from not only transfer of information but to transfer of value. In the real world, where we need immutability, transparency and trust blockchain can be used in that domain. Blockchain is the consensus based decentralized, distributed, immutable public/private database which saves the transactions into the blocks over a peer to peer network. It is applicable everywhere be it healthcare, supply chain management, education, finance, voting and so on. There are many fraudulent cases wherein candidates provide forged/wrong college degree to the employer for getting hired. Employers perform various background checks by availing third party services which go to the university to personally verify the degree. This process is for sure time consuming and costly. In this scenario by saving the college degree certificate in an immutable ledger and making an application for the employers collectively to easily verify the college degree of the candidate in minutes lot of time and resources can be saved. Note: The research is being done primarily addressing problems in India. Therefore, some references will be purely according to what is happening in India although the technical solution is independent of any country.
