Blockchain is becoming increasingly popular as a system for recording information which is difficult to fraudulent hack or alter. The technology is already being used in a variety of industries, including banking, healthcare, and commerce. With features like security, transparency, and decentralisation, it provides protection to existing business methods. Given blockchain technology’s security and integrity, new ways of introducing the technology into the education sector are constantly emerging, however, the most promising use case is to protect students and their qualifications.
