The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is adopting Avalanche blockchain to issue secure, tamper-proof certificates in India, enhancing digital credentialing.
This initiative, as reported by CoinTelegraph, partnering with Zupple Labs to use Avalanche blockchain, represents a pivotal step in digital credentialing, aiming to offer tamper-proof, instantly verifiable certificates.
“Utilizing Avalanche’s C-Chain, primarily for its compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, the IEEE demonstrates a forward-thinking approach in adapting blockchain technology. The choice of Avalanche (AVAX), endorsed by entities like SK Planet and JP Morgan Onyx, hinges on its capacity for ensuring the immutability, longevity, and security of the certificates.”Head of Avalache’s India arm Devika Mittal
This decision, as explained by Mittal, also simplifies the deployment of applications vital for credential registries and identity management.
However, this initiative is not without its considerations. The reliance on a single blockchain platform, despite its current advantages, may raise questions about flexibility and adaptability in the face of evolving technology. As Zupple co-founder Neil Martis suggests, exploring additional parallel settlement layers could be beneficial, ensuring that the system remains robust against technological shifts.
