In the popular business school of India, SP Jain School of Global Management, 1,189 blockchainBlockchain
is a continuous and sequential block chain of information (digital linked list). When building a blockchain, copies of related blocks are simultaneously stored on multiple computers.Details
certificates were issued to graduates who recently received diplomas, according to CNN news agency.

Certificates that are currently in Ethereum blocks will allow potential employers and other parties to verify the authenticity of educational qualifications. The verification process is intuitive and simple.

To view the data does not require additional software or specialized equipment. All that a potential employer or other parties need is to scan the QR code that is printed on the certificate.

Blockchain in the education system

In addition to educational qualifications, the questionnaire will include a portfolio of students, projects, and even attendance. All this information will be available without compromising the privacy rules of graduates.

"On a global scale, more than once various attempts were made to issue certificates on a blockchain. But so far it was not possible to capture the full information about the graduate as part of the certification (...) Attendance of students and other personal data are securely stored in the school’s closed block section, and only the data related to certification are publicly shown in the Ethereum chain" – President of the SP Jain School of Global Management Nitish Jain.

In the issuance of educational certificates, currently 1,189 blocks, SP Jain School of Global Management joins a growing list of countries and institutions that apply to distributed accounting technology. This, according to school management, will help prevent fraud. Now, in India there are only 1189 blockchain certificates for graduates of a specialized school, but in the future this certification system will be extended to other graduates of the country.

Recall that last month, the Ministry of Education of Malaysia also announced a system of issuance and verification, based on block connections, for university degrees. However, unlike the SP Jain Global Management School, Malaysia used the NEM block chain.
