Blockchain Diplomas

The University of New York in Prague issues digital diplomas using blockchain technology for all degrees accredited by MŠMT, along with traditional paper diplomas. This is a result of our continuous effort to bring innovation, the latest technology, and new practical solutions to the education industry.

A university diploma issued digitally via blockchain employs all of the inherent advantages of the technology. Compared to a simple scanned copy of a paper diploma, a blockchain diploma cannot be forged, and is easily traceable and verifiable by anybody, while staying secure. In a world without a central diploma verification authority, blockchain diplomas are a great tool to increase student and workforce mobility. Another benefit is that each blockchain diploma that we issue via the BCdiploma service is essentially a hyperlink. While paper diplomas might still be a matter of prestige and tradition, our younger graduates need something more practical in their increasingly digital lives. A hyperlink is easy to share on social or professional networks, and even if they download it as a file, it contains a QR code that any university or potential employer can easily open to verify the authenticity of the diploma.

It is very easy for digital diploma holders to work with this format, as it is quickly verifiable, securely stored, and cannot be lost.

One of the biggest advantages is that the transparency of the blockchain system can resolve some nostrification issues for graduates studying or working abroad. The future of the technology appears bright, mainly due to the transparency of its past. All previous transactions are kept in a blockchain that is by design secure, transparent, easily verifiable, and independent of any central authority. This is a unique and valuable concept which perfectly matches the trends in our quickly-evolving digital world.
