Academic Degrees as NFT?
<div class="text-justify"><p>Academic degrees in Venezuela, have always been delivered in a kind of very traditional parchment, which over time have gone from animal skin, to paper money, being these very prone to be lost, damaged with the passage of time or even by accidents, plus they could be counterfeited by experts who can replicate them, In our country we also have a serious current economic problem, which prevents the Universities from buying the paper for the degrees, giving as an example my alma mater Universidad Nacional Experimental Sur del Lago where I still work, annually delivers more than 1000 degrees.</p>
<p>This post has the purpose of putting into perspective, The possibility of delivering academic degrees under the Blockchain system, in Venezuela, since being the most secure platform in the world and putting into perspective the fact of the ecological footprint of which they talk so much.</p>
<h3><p>Theoretical bases: </p></h3>
<blockquote><p>According to Meriam Web Dictionary:</p></blockquote>
<h4><p>Blockchain:</p></h4>
<p>It is a data structure whose information is grouped in sets (blocks) to which meta-information relating to another block of the previous chain is added in a timeline. In this way, thanks to cryptographic techniques, the information contained in a block can only be repudiated or edited by modifying all subsequent blocks. This property allows its application in a distributed environment so that the blockchain data structure can act as a public non-relational database containing an irrefutable history of information.</p>
<p>These applications make it a secure public tool with no intermediaries to manipulate it being this a page that is updated in chain.</p>
<blockquote><p>According to SSRN:</p></blockquote>
<h4><p>NFTs:</p></h4>
<p>A non-fungible token or NFT (also known by the acronym NFT, from non-fungible token) is a special type of cryptographic token that represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are therefore not mutually exchangeable. Which makes them a unique exchange item protected by the blockchain and they go hand in hand with Cryptocurrencies I should note, that the fact that you are the owner of an item in NFT, will not prevent its distribution or copying but you will be given a digital document that certifies you as the sole owner of the NFT.</p>

<p>Three universities in Spain in the year 2020, put this into practice, of course more focused on the fact of avoiding counterfeiting, than the economic fact, these are the University of Murcia Spain, the University of San Antonio and the Polytechnic University of Cartagena, leaving a historical precedent of the possibilities of NFTs as a process to ensure something as valuable as an academic degree.</p>
<p>Of course, for this to be applicable in our country, the ideal would be to update the regional registries with the blockchain platform, so that when these titles go to the national database, they do not have problems at the time of registration, but it is more a problem of training than of structure.</p>
<p>Doing the job well, it should leave very acceptable results in economic and environmental savings, contrasting with the fact that they want to leave the blockchain in bad shape, with the problem of the ecological footprint, ceasing to print tons of paper that would include minutes of verdict, certified Notes and the titles themselves.</p>

<p>Besides helping the fact that it would be very complicated for someone to forge a University degree on the blockchain based on NFTs.</p>
<h3><p>Conclusions:</p></h3>
<p>I can say with certainty, that if done in the right way, this can bring benefits in the short and long term for all Venezuelans, not without leaving open the fact that it is just a proposal, that has been thought for a while, and that has already been successfully applied in Spain, I would like us to reflect in the comments What do you think about this? Thank you.</p></div class="text-justify">

Hello @rubenp, I am a professor at a public university here in Venezuela and I know about these problems that are being presented to prepare university degrees. With what you have explained here in your post, I also believe that it is very possible to make use of blockchain technology to issue university titles because this would significantly reduce the possibility of counterfeiting and in the same way it prevents printed titles from being damaged by the pass of the time.

see you
