Knowledge, Learning, Community

This paper (14 page PDF) offers an outline of how academic credentials could be secured using blockchain. Eventually something like this will be put into place - the main challenge here isn't the technology but whether institutions will cooperate enough with each other to support such a system. I would also add that most people will never see the workings of such a system - instead, they'll just have 'verified credentials' on their digital wallet or some such thing.
