Co-developed by Learning Machine and the MIT Media Lab in 2016, Blockcerts are a new type of blockchain-based record that individuals own for a lifetime and can easily share with anyone they choose.
Employers, governments, and schools can instantly verify whether a Blockcert is authentic by clicking a button or scanning its QR code. No special software is needed. No more fees need to be paid to issuing institutions or software vendors.
Blockcerts includes a free open source mobile app for recipients, that acts as a private collection of
official records. The app stores, shares, and verifies records from any institution that issues Blockcerts.
