Digital Academic Credentials

Blockchain Certificates is a set of tools, software, and strategies to store and manage digital credentials. Certificates are registered on the bitcoin blockchain, cryptographically signed, and tamper-proof. They can represent or recognize many different types of achievements. After a number of prototypes (we issued digital credentials to Media Lab Director's Fellows and Media Lab alumni) we published our code under an open-source license to enable others to deploy the tools we developed. The work is being taken forward by an international network of universities. See https://digitalcredentials.mit.edu for more information.
