A Case for Registrar Adoption of Blockchain and Self-Sovereign Identity (10:40-11:20)
Speakers: Helen Garrett and Nathan Dors
Could new trust models based on blockchain technologies help Registrars modernize how degrees are issued and verified? Could degrees and other academic credentials be issued to digital identities owned and controlled by individuals themselves, in ways that promote privacy-preserving exchanges of data with 3rd parties who need to verify claims about degrees and other academic achievements? In this talk, Helen and Nathan will explore these questions involving degrees, blockchain, decentralized trust, and self-sovereign identity.
