Today, we are proud to announce that we are now the first school in the world to deliver our certificates in the Bitcoin blockchain. Storing our certificates in the blockchain will simplify the verification process by employers, and help fight against fake certificates and false resumes.

Every Holberton digital certificate will be issued in a secure environment, 256 bits encrypted private key and 2 factor authentication to access the interface that will generate, sign and and insert the certificate into the Bitcoin blockchain, making the certificate’s content sealed and tamper-proof. In addition, each graduate will be given a paper certificate, and a Digital Certificate Number (DCN). This DCN can be included on resumes, so that any employer can easily verify the validity if the certificate.

This is all made possible by the technology developed by Louison Dumont and his team at Bitproof.
