A New Infrastructure of Trust
Relying on centralized authorities to verify authenticity is slow, complicated, and impermanent. The blockchain replaces institutions with a permanent and tamper-proof infrastructure of trust.
To demonstrate how the project’s various components can be used together, suppose a student is about to graduate from school and is applying for a job with an employer who requires proof of graduation:
- The recipient requests a certificate from the school via the certificate wallet
- The issuer issues a certificate to the student
- The recipient shares their certificate with the employer
- The consumer (i.e. employer) may use a 3rd party to verify the certificate
