Piloting educational micro-credentials in the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure

Want to see how blockchains enable new public services? How about blockchain-based international study-records? Join EBSI-demo day! Computing Sciences have been a key contributor to one of the demos. When people hear the word blockchain, the first and probably the only thing that comes to their mind is cryptocurrencies and especially Bitcoin. Depending on the person this may then just lead to negative thoughts about the whole thing: imaginary money, volatile prices, scams and huge energy consumption. However, money is not the only potential use case for blockchains. To simplify blockchain is a distributed ledger of transactions. Everybody participating has a full copy of the ledger. Anybody can propose new transactions to be added to the ledger, but majority of the others have to agree on including the new transaction which ensures that the new transaction follows a set of common rules. Once added to the blockchain the transaction cannot be changed. This blog post is then about one potential use for this technology where this kind of decentralized system can offer some benefits.
