My name is Emanuel Groh and I am currently writing a thesis at the German university WHU-Otto-Beisheim School of Management, on the subject “Proof of certification through blockchain technology”.
Under the supervision of my Professor, I address the question of whether it is worthwhile for universities to save the diplomas of their graduates using decentralised networks, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, so that companies can independently verify the accuracy of these certificates without having to contact the university.
In order to create a reasonable cost-benefit analysis, I need information about the costs that universities incur when they implement such a blockchain based system. Hence, as this forum contains multiple experts, I would like to ask if I could post some cost related questions here or if possible conduct a short interview about this topic with one of the lead developers, via Skype for example.
I would be very thankful for your support and it might lead to numerous German universities implementing this blockchain based technology.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Thank you in advance and best regards,
