Iberian Peninsula's Andorra Govt To Use Blockchain For Storing Educational Academic Degrees

Blockchain Technology To Come To Higher Education In Andorra For Storage Of Academic Degrees

Due to the ability to easily store information, blockchain technology has gravitated to multiple industries like food service and even healthcare. With this capability, the government in Andorra decided that their academic degrees would be hosted on a blockchain-based ledger.

The new blockchain technology will digitize national higher education, and the goal is to create a more secure process for the registry. The benefit to this type of record-keeping option is that the degrees can never be eliminated or modified, though the technology’s implementation will also help to minimize the “administrative expenses derived from the current analog process,” according to an article in EuropaPress.

To gain access to the blockchain, users will go through Andorra telecom, which is a national telecom company that distributes digital terrestrial and radio broadcast services. These services are primarily provided within the Principality of Andorra.

In the press release, EuropaPress said that blockchain technology would make the entire process of accessing higher education easier. They added, “It opens the possibility that in the future the Hague Apostille in the recognition of titles at an international level will not be necessary.” The Hague Apostille is a certificate, which allows a document to be issued and certified for use in other signatory states.

The Maltese government recently signed a two-year contract, committing to store all educational certificates with a software company. The certificates will include secondary school certificates, whether they are issued by independent, church, or state schools, and all will reside on the blockchain.

The Russian Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Education and Science announced this month that they aim to implement blockchain technology as well. They will use it in the main graduation examination, starting this year.
