MIT Media Lab that developed Blockcerts prototype?


I’m really interested in Blockcerts and want to learn more about the original prototype developed by MIT Media Lab that is mentioned in Blockcerts website. The website, however, doesn’t provide any reference to that MIT project. Can anyone give me a reference to the MIT project?

Thank you,


The original idea was written about here, which was a graduate student project in 2015. That code was never released because it was more of a concept than fully-vetted code. Throughout 2016, extensive work continued between MIT and Learning Machine to evolve the concept and release code that was ready for an open-source community. That was announced here. Notice that all of the links point to the current Blockcerts code-base. There isn’t some other hidden project. It’s all out in the open. I hope this helps.
