Trusted Diploma

by Emercoin

Trusted Diploma is built on blockchain technology that is decentralized, authenticated and resistant to tampering. All of the above makes it perfect for storing academic certificates.

Trust is a core element in our daily lives. In the world of digital mass communications flooded with ‘fake news,’ it’s increasingly important to know how to verify ‘truth’ whether it’s a news story or the credentialing of a person handling your health. In healthcare, it can be a matter of life or death if one, for example, might have accidentally chosen a sham doctor.

Today, such documents are in high demand; the average price for them is between $500 and $2,500. And when you compare it with the average tuition fee of $80,000+ students pay for the real four-year degree, it becomes clear any person can buy them, even your colleagues.

Imagine a world where medical patients could automatically trust the diplomas on a doctors’ walls. Or a world where job recruiters could easily confirm that applicants had actually graduated from the colleges on their resumes. A world where you could find and share your education credentials online without fear that hackers might alter or expunge them.

The benefits of this world would be virtually limitless. Professional services would be safer, smarter and more effective, increasing consumer confidence and business growth. Companies would avoid hiring people that represented ‘fake news’ about their actual skills or credentials. We would all enjoy greater confidence in an online job market that is simpler, more secure and more trusted.

We are closer to this reality than you might think, thanks to a game-changing blockchain innovation being developed by Emercoin.

  • According to Employers Choice Screening, every year people buy roughly 200,000 degrees around the world
  • 30% of job candidates lie about their education on their résumé or job application
  • Companies selling fake diplomas earn $51m a year

How it works

Emercoin’s Trusted Diploma system is based on unique Name Value Storage (NVS) capability. It is completely secure and easy to use.

  2. Сreate a record and publicly confirm that this entry belongs to you
    You need to enter your company's name into the «name» field. As an example - «UNIVERSITYNAME».
    This way it creates an analogue of Round Certificate seal. In future, all diplomas provided by this university, are signed using this original record.
  3. Start creating diploma records
    Create the name of the diploma record (for example, dpo: Universityname: AA01:0),fill in information about diploma, indicate a time depth of the diploma record and sign this record
  4. Verify the signature
    Enter your name and the address of the diploma you've registered and get «true» in the result

Testimonials

Trusted Diploma will help us all combat growing levels of manipulation and corruption and ensure that the education credentials we see online are valid. We urge everyone to join our effort, which will improve professional services and protect people from dangerous fraud in the health care, legal, real estate and other sectors.
Eugene Shumilov, CEO of Emercoin
Trusted Diploma provides a vital new service to BTU administrators and graduates. We are very happy to work with the innovative Emercoin team on this crucially important project. The Trusted Diploma platform will help our school build a secure and immutable database of education certificates, which will help our graduates as they pursue successful careers.
Mikheil Batiashvili, Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia
Higher education institutions, governments, employers and societies generally, in both developed and developing countries, are far too complacent about the growth of corrupt practices, either assuming that these vices occur somewhere else or turning a deaf ear to rumors of malpractice in their own organizations. The needs of societies cannot be met if graduates do not have the competencies that higher education institutions purport to have given them.
John Daniel, in a report to UNESCO and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation
The need for this technology is pervasive. Much like the little ‘check mark’ on Twitter or Facebook profiles, companies like LinkedIn or Indeed.com could use this to validate the data represented on profiles, ensuring that data is tamper-proof and accurate. Blockchain is a core technology enabling greatly improved efficiency in the way governments, businesses and institutions deliver systems and services to people around the world. Emercoin is harnessing that technology to make sure those solutions are flexible, user-friendly and available for everyone.
