Best Innovation in Blockchain Technology 2019: WINNER
With 21% of all resumes containing a fraudulent degree we think it’s essential to make verification easy, decentralized and almost impossible to fake. The problem of our time is fake news and whilst normally we think of that in the news/political sense increased globalization and advances in AI will mean it’s an increasing problem across a range of industries. We expect credential fraud to keep increasing it and Accredible is tackling the problem head on with innovative use of technology. We are a cloud-hosted web application where credential issuers can create, deliver and manage their certificates and badges. These digital credentials are delivered to individuals via email or their learning platform and exist on a unique URL to be shared with third parties. We provide a number of verification tools that include blockchain record verification, PDF validation and a directory of alumni.
