NFTs and Certificates, Transcripts and Degrees

Using NFTs to prove educational accomplishments

Have you tried to share proof of your qualifications? Do you have to approach your providing institution and have them send copies to another party? Are you able to use PAPER copies for some purposes? Doesn't this all seem incredibly antiquated? Shouldn't you just be able to send a link to your qualifications online?

NFTs can provide a modern way for you to reference your qualifications, by placing a representation of your accomplishments on the Ethereum or Polygon blockchain as a non-fungible token, so that others can see and confirm your qualifications online.

Your accomplishments belong to you, not to an issuing institution! You should have complete control over your certificates, transcripts, qualifications and degrees.

Looking forward to the future of NFTs in proving educational experiences!

Metaverse Education

Education in the Metaverse

I woke up this morning with dreams of online education in my head. This isn't entirely unusual, as I have been in education for more than twenty years and in online education since 2003. The thoughts, though, were of what education will look like in the Metaverse. I awoke to thoughts of NFTs (non-fungible tokens), online campuses and other resources at Decentraland and may other images.

I might explore these ideas over the holidays!

To the future of education!

About Decentralized Finance

Decentralized finance (DeFi) is a financial system built on blockchains (including Ethereum), using coded rules - smart contracts - to determine the use and release of finances on the blockchain. Some see these developing systems as alternatives to traditional financial instruments and others suggest that such blockchain-based coded smart contracts are the future of finance.
