What is Blockchain Credentialing?
Blockchains (aka decentralized ledgers) can be described as data structures with the following inherent attributes:
- Transparent: All data embedded in the document is available for anyone with access to the public key to review.
- Immutable: Data relating to a document can only be added on the structure; cannot be altered or removed.
- Open: The network is open for anyone to participate.
- Secure: Powered by strong cryptography.
Blockchain-anchored records add value to your issuing process and create benefits for all involved.

BLOCK.CO IS TRUSTED BY
We at the British University of Dubai used the blockchain certificates technology of the University of Nicosia with great success for the entire graduating class of 2017. The process of issuing them was smooth and without any problems. University of Nicosia’s guidance and support was excellent during the implementation phase of the project. We will continue to provide such certificates in the future and we are now in the process of updating our system and issuing the blockchain certificates to all of our past students. In addition, we are currently exploring additional opportunities to bring blockchain certification technology to various Governmental and non-Governmental Higher Institutions within UAE.
At the University of Nicosia (UNIC), we strongly believe that everyone should have ownership of their personal data which they can share and haveauthenticated at will. This is why we were the first university in the world to publish all award titles of our graduating students (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) on the blockchain. All award titles issued are been digitized and their electronic fingerprint (“hash”) is added to the public Bitcoin blockchain, a decentralized and distributed digital ledger. This allows our students to present an electronic PDF that can be verified by any third party (e.g. employers or academic institutions) immediately and in a secure manner.
