In today’s fast-paced world, businesses need to ensure their employees are well versed in relevant technology, regulations, and practices. Top-notch training programs are vital for keeping employees up to date and at the top of their game. But unfortunately, current certification methods aren’t airtight.
Online certificates for successful completion of education programs are often issued on PDFs, which extremely vulnerable to falsification, theft, and duplication.
And that means company leadership and customers can’t always be certain team members have completed all necessary training and received the proper accreditation.
Luckily, all this is about to change thanks to ERC721 tokens and recent developments in blockchain infrastructure. As an example case study, E-learning provider Lawpilots is collaborating with a blockchain infrastructure firm Lition to finally deliver secure employee accreditation certificates.
By deploying ERC721 token certificates, education programs can kiss vulnerable PDF certificates goodbye forever. By storing certificates on a private blockchain, documents are able to be secured and made available to relevant parties without putting the certification’s authenticity at risk.
However, not all blockchain platforms are created equal, and any platform up to the task must be able to secure certificate on the chain while allowing the data to be deleted when it is no longer relevant.
Let’s take a glimpse into the future of document sharing and security.
In this kind of system, when a user completes a training module and receives their certificate, they can then upload the certificate to a private sidechain on the network, securing the record.
The certificates could then be shared upon request with relevant individuals or organizations to prove that the user passed the course. Counter-parties could easily connect to the private sidechains to inspect documents,
