Building certificates and credentails in the blockchain

Together with our partners, Knowledge 4 All Foundation (K4A) and the Jozef Stefan Institute (JSI), 0xcert is building a blockchain-based system for issuing and management of academic credentials, leveraging blockchain qualities of traceability, security, and ease of authentication.

Also, by implementing the NFT (non-fungible token) technology, the uniqueness, metadata, and identity related to a certificate or micro-credential can be securely protected on a ledger while providing all involved parties with a simple, autonomous, and intuitive means of management.

All this is being developed within the MicroHE project which aims to provide the most comprehensive policy analysis yet conducted of the impact of modularisation, unbundling and micro-credentialing in European Higher Education.
