Blockchain will revolutionize how we issue, manage, and share digital records.
This pilot demonstrates that the value of blockchain stretches far beyond financial technology and can drive societal value and happiness in diverse areas such as education. It represents one of the first significant steps in real implementation of blockchain and solidifies Dubai’s reputation as the blockchain capital of the world.
As part of our continuous work to create new opportunities for our students, we recognize the growing need for academic institutions to innovate and adapt to their needs in the digital age. This project enhances mobility and hireability for our students and young professionals while streamlining our internal processes, accelerating digital transformation.
Dubai has a long history of leading digital innovation. Since launching the Dubai Blockchain Strategy in 2016, we have created a global standard for smart cities in blockchain adoption. As the leading center for blockchain development we attract innovation from all parts of the globe, forging strong partnerships to create lasting impact. The launch of the world’s largest pilot of blockchain in education is one such example of this.
It is quite fitting to have the world’s largest pilot of blockchain technology in education be launched out of Dubai. The emirate has proven to be a trailblazer in this advanced field, adopting the ambitious Dubai Blockchain Strategy and marching towards the complete digitisation of government transactions by 2020, while the rest of the world remains hesitant to explore and use the technology to its full potential. Blockchain is indeed one of the most revolutionary breakthroughs humanity has had in recent years.
Securely issue digital documents
Educhain enables institutions to independently issue secure digital records and documents - cryptographically signed and attested, backed by the permanence of blockchain, without reliance on third parties. The burden of processing document requests is eliminated, cutting processing time from days to seconds.
Freely share and easily authenticate
Users can freely share digital documents and records with recipients, who can easily validate the authenticity of documents through an automated system. What previously took days or weeks for verification, now takes seconds.
