Emercoin, BTU Release App to Combat Manipulation Epidemic in Education Sector

On August 2, Emercoin, in partnership with the Business & Technology University (BTU), announced the start of a free, socially important, blockchain-integrated platform, ‘Trusted Diploma.’

The MOU was signed between Emercoin Investor, Advisor and Renowned Venture Capitalist, Bill Tai, and the Business Technology University Tbilisi Rector, now Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia, Mikheil Batiashvili. Trusted Diploma ensures that the competencies of all graduates are easily and clearly verified and that graduates can easily access their records without fear of manipulation or corruption. This platform helps schools, businesses, and graduates to validate the online accuracy and authenticity of education credentials, as well as share verifiable diplomas and other certificates on an encrypted and secure app.

Empowering fintech and other industries with new levels of security and immutability, blockchain changes the way people live. The Emercoin and BTU partnership, which resulted in the creation of the Trusted Diploma platform, suggests a novel stage in the global technology expansion.

“Trusted Diploma will help us prevent growing levels of manipulation and corruption and ensure that the education credentials we see online are valid,” said Eugene Shumilov, CEO of Emercoin. “We urge everyone to join our effort, which will improve professional services and protect people from dangerous fraud in the healthcare, legal, real estate, and other sectors.”

BTU provides students with innovative approaches to learning and together with Emercoin, the implemented platform will be a serious step towards combatting manipulation and corruption in the education sector.

“We are very happy to work with the innovative Emercoin team on this crucially important project,” said Batiashvili. “The Trusted Diploma platform will help our school build a secure and immutable database of education certificates, which will help our graduates as they pursue successful careers.”
