The Ministry of education and training in Vietnam is getting ready to integrate blockchain technology for issuing diplomas in 2021.
An announcement was made last week on the 18th of November that highlighted that the ministry has teamed up with TomoChain, a Singapore-based start-up, in order to put a national student certification on the proprietary blockchain platform from TomoChain.
As a part of this project, the Vietnam ministry is getting ready to issue all kinds of diplomas granted by its training units and the high school of higher education through this new system. Furthermore, this new system is going to come into effect at the end of the school year next year.
Interestingly, the announcement specifically highlighted the new blockchain-based certification system which has been designed to enable for transparent and immutable verification of the qualifications for all of its students. The deputy minister at the Vietnam Ministry of education, Nguyen Van Phuc has said the following:
“Diploma and certificate management is an issue that needs to be resolved by technology, which is significant for the whole of society and also cost-efficient for the diploma management system in particular, and education in general.”
This is an exciting development and could prove to be successful if integrated prep properly. Could this pave the way for other countries to follow in Vietnam's footsteps?
