Malaysia’s education ministry has formed a new consortium of universities to harness blockchain tech in tackling the massive industry in fake certificates.
The Ministry of Education announced in a press release posted on Twitter Thursday, that alongside the new consortium of six universities, it has launched a blockchain-based system called e-Scroll for the issuance and verification of university degrees.
The solution, it said, was prompted by a rise in cases of fraudulent degrees and the ease with which they can be obtained over the internet.
