fraud-proof verifiable certificates using Dock
SEVENmile, an experiential learning program in Australia, implemented Dock’s verifiable credentials platform to issue hundreds of digital graduation certificates that are fraud-proof and instantly verifiable using blockchain technology. SEVENmile is collaborating with the New South Wales Education State Agency to expand the program to 1500 high schools by 2024.
SEVENmile’s entrepreneurial training program pairs high school students with business owners to teach students problem-solving techniques and help them gain an understanding of real-life business issues.
Degree and certificate fraud is a billion-dollar industry and a growing problem worldwide. SEVENmile believes that in 2022, a graduation certificate in a paper format has no real-world value to a student. Printed certificates are difficult to verify and, because of that, do not help students prove their skills.
No longterm value
Easy to fake
Difficult to Verify
How SEVENmile solved it
SEVENmile started using Dock’s verifiable credentials platform, Certs, allowing students to prove their skills throughout their lives and ensure immediate trust with employers.
“As we’ve started to issue these blockchain-based credentials, and we’ve educated our students on what they are and how they can use them, they are now excited that they, unlike perhaps many of their peers, are going to be presenting a blockchain credential to people who they might be applying to work for. That blockchain credential actually sets them apart, and I’ve seen that the light has gone on for them that they are different and special because they have a blockchain credential.”
How it works
Dock’s verifiable credentials platform, Certs, enables SEVENmile to issue digital certificates that are instantly verifiable and impossible to fake.
SEVENmile is using Certs’ No-Code web dashboard to issue certificates in a few clicks. However, Certs was built with flexibility in mind and an API and SDK are available.
