University of Bahrain to Use Blockchain for Tamper-Free Diplomas

Diplomas on blockchain technology will now be issued by the University of Bahrain, as reported by Trade Arabia.

The report claims that the university, in partnership with Learning Machine, is planning to employ the Blockcerts open standard. The company is to provide a platform to issue official records utilizing blockchain-anchored format, which can verify the new diplomas.

In September, the media highlighted Bahrain’s focus on the utilization of blockchain technology for economic prosperity and security issues. Bahrain’s minister of electricity and water affairs, Dr Abdul Hassain Ali Mirza, commented that the protection of the user’s data can be ensured using blockchain.

Moreover, the technology can be applied to various sectors, which makes it truly remarkable for the tiny Gulf nation. The recent move has been regarded as a part of the university’s digitization scheme for mobile learners.

Blockchain’s influence is increasing gradually among the academic circles. Recently, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) also declared that it will be issuing blockchain-based digital certificates to more than 100 graduates, also using the Bitcoin-based Blockcerts platform. MIT hopes that the blockchain-based certificates would ensure tamper-free and unchangeable academic credentials.

In the future, using blockchain technology, students may be rid of the frustrating procedure of diploma verifications. In particular, the students applying or studying abroad may get the most benefit. However, in order to realize such a system, every institution would be required to adapt to the blockchain-based verification system.
