Does our organization have to set up a blockchain node or manage a crypto currency?2019-02-21T08:00:10+00:00

What happens to issued certificates if for whatever reason our account is discontinued?2019-02-21T07:59:35+00:00

Any already issued certificate has no ongoing dependence on Block.co. These records are anchored on the blockchain that recipients own for a lifetime.

We would like to be further educated about the product before committing to its adoption. Do you provide any kind of training?2019-02-21T07:53:49+00:00

Indeed, we do. We in fact consider this as a must for us to also get a better understanding of your company’s specific needs, requirements, and structure, so that we can deliver a product that best fits your profile.

What types of institutions benefit most from licensing of your product?2019-02-21T07:55:03+00:00

Any institution, may it be a government, a local authority, any corporation or academic institution that issues certificates that wish to have an enhanced level of security and immutability.

Is there a limit as to the number of certificates that can be issued per batch?2019-02-21T07:56:06+00:00

The way we have designed our product where multiple certificates are hashed together, enables us to issue an unlimited number of documents per batch.

Can certificates anchored to the blockchain have an expiry date, as this may be necessary for a number of certifications?2019-02-21T07:56:38+00:00

Expiration dates can be set during the issuance phase as part of the embedded metadata. Therefore, when the validity period lapses, the verification process will indicate that the certificate has expired.

Can certificates be revoked in case of a mistake or a change in circumstances?2019-02-21T07:57:12+00:00

Indeed. We have developed a methodology whereby certificates can be revoked in case there is a need for that.
