Blockchain has been a part of people’s interest in the development of various areas such as digital currencies (e.g., Bitcoin), securities, healthcare, record-keeping and much more. Some of the key features of blockchain technology are immutability, decentralization, distributed ledger, consensus, and smart contract. In this report, we explore how blockchain technology could possibly be utilized for the academic credential attestation in the education domain. This thesis aims to re-engineer the academic credential attestation process to reduce both time and resource consumption and human involvement. It also aims to design a unique way for academic data collection to prevent fraudulent academic credentials. A blockchain-based system for academic credential attestation has been implemented.
