Blockchain Technology Offers Enhanced validation for digital credentials



Security and transparency are critical to verifying that an earner has been issued a valid digital credential by your organization. Recording digital credentials on a blockchain brings an additional level of external verification to the issuers and earners using Credly's Acclaim platform.

  • Why Blockchain? Blockchain adds an additional level of external verification for issuers and earners of high-value credentials. By issuing digital credentials on the blockchain, it communicates to users that your organization uses the latest technology supporting high-volume verification requests of future-proof and tamper-proof credentials.

  • How Do Credentials on Blockchain Work? Your organization enables blockchain validation for any credentials you issue. The earner accepts a blockchain-enabled credential and publishes it to the blockchain, which records the transaction. The credential can then be verified in real time by third parties on the blockchain. 

  • Which Blockchains Are Supported? Recording digital credentials on the Bitcoin blockchain is currently available. Credly’s blockchain architecture is designed to be extensible and blockchain-agnostic. 
  • What Does it Cost? Nothing. There are no additional costs to record your digital credentials to blockchain--for your organization or your earners.
