Singaporean Government’s ‘OpenCerts’ To Issue Graduate Certificates On Blockchain

OpenCerts is co-developed by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Government Technology Agency (GovTech),  along with national educational movement SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) and higher learning institution Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP). Powered by the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, this open-source platform plans to provide a reliable way to issue and verify certificates, boost the security of data, the efficiency of issuance and validation processes, and reduce costs associated with traditional paper certificates.

Reportedly, GovTech and NP piloted the OpenCerts in 2018 with the first batch of digital certificates issued to NP graduates. The report states the institution issues around 10,000 physical copies of certificates each year, with all of them being printed and stamped, while verification requests from employers reportedly number about 2,000.
