dc.description.abstractCertificates play an important role in education and companies, where individual learning records become essential for people’s professional careers. It is therefore important that these records are stored in long-term available and tamper-proof ledgers. Until today, training facilities, educational institution or certification authorities issue paper-based certificates and certification processes are not digitized. Blockchain technology could support this transformation form paper certificates to digital certificates and it could help to generate learning histories. In this demonstration, we present the Blockchain for Education platform as a practical solution for issuing, monitoring, validating and sharing of certificates. The Blockchain for Education platform is based on the Ethereum blockchain and it uses smart contracts to support the certification process.en
