韩国大学因冠状病毒而颁发基于区块链技术的文凭

2020-2-10 11:46

在席卷全球的冠状病毒疫情中,韩国一所大学取消了毕业典礼,颁发了区块链证书。


本月,浦项科技大学(POSTECH)的828名应届毕业生收到了一个二维码,该二维码与区块链加密的文凭证书相连接。


“新电晕后,是不可能按时毕业,所以即使学生不去上学,获得文凭,他或她可以得到数字学位所获得的区块链技术,“大学的一名发言人告诉拥有。

 

区块链文凭是如何运作的?


文凭放在区块链上,这样可以防止有人谎称自己在这所大学学习过。雇主可以在iconloop.com公司提供的数据库中查找学位信息,以确定某人是否真的在大学里学习过。iconloop.com公司制造了这项技术。


这项技术已经变得流行起来。麻省理工学院从2015年开始使用区块链记录证书,从2017年开始使用证书;墨尔本的RMIT大学从去年开始就这么做了。英国开放大学(Open University)获得了欧盟委员会(European Commission)的一笔拨款,用于开发一个基于区块链的认证项目。像Parchment、CIMEA和Fluree这样的区块链公司也都在致力于将资质纳入区块链。

 

冠状病毒传播到哪里?


据英国广播公司报道,全球已有超过34800人感染冠状病毒,700多人死亡。据worldometers统计,韩国有24例。全球经济也感受到了这种病毒的存在;中国已经印刷了1740亿美元来抵消冠状病毒的经济影响。


虽然冠状病毒没有影响比特币的价格,但加密社区受到了间接的影响;从被迫关闭的比特币矿和初创公司,到组织捐款项目抗击冠状病毒的区块链公司。区块链开发人员Acoer甚至开发了一个仪表盘,使用Hedera Hashgraph跟踪病毒的传播。

 

Amid the coronavirus epidemic that’s sweeping the world, a South Korean university has scrapped a graduation ceremony and issued fresh graduates with blockchain certificates.

 

This month, 828 new graduates of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) were sent a QR code that links to a blockchain-secured diploma certificate.

 

"In the aftermath of the new corona, it is impossible to hold the graduation on time, so even if a student does not go to school and receive a diploma, he or she can get a digital degree that is secured by blockchain technology,” a spokesperson from the university told MBN.


How does the blockchain diploma work?

 

The diploma is secured on the blockchain, which will prevent people from fraudulently claiming to have studied at the university. An employer can look up degrees in the database provided by ICONLOOP—the company that’s made the technology—to determine if someone really has studied at the university.

 

The technology has become popular. MIT has used blockchain to log certificates since 2015, and diplomas since 2017; Melbourne’s RMIT University has done so since last year.  The UK’s Open University has received a grant from the European Commission to develop a blockchain-based certification program. Blockchain companies like Parchment, CIMEA, and Fluree have all worked on putting qualifications on the blockchain, too.


Where has the coronavirus spread to?

 

Over 34,800 people have been infected with the coronavirus worldwide, and over 700 have died, according to the BBC. South Korea has 24 cases, according to worldometers. The virus has made its presence felt on the global economy, too; China has printed $174 billion to offset the economic effects of the coronavirus.

 

Although the coronavirus hasn’t impacted the price of Bitcoin, the crypto community has been tangentially affected; from Bitcoin mines and startups being forced to close their doors, to blockchain companies organizing donation programs to tackle the coronavirus. Blockchain developer Acoer has even developed a dashboard to track the spread of the virus using Hedera Hashgraph.
