The software company Netcetera launched a new spin-off company, Blokverse. The company delivers solutions using Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). Blockverse introduced the Attainr platform, a secure and comprehensive platform for managing education credentials.
Attainr addresses the challenges in the field of education with the benefits of decentralized access, which is a safe and non-manual issuance of digital credentials. A neutral side can then easily verify the credentials. Attainr enables secure and reliable creation and issuance of credentials for the education providers, full control of their accomplishments for the recipients, quick and verifiable source for the relying parties.
Netcetera claims there is an untapped and great potential when it comes to decentralized access to process, validate or authenticate transactions. This enables the distribution of data between all parties in the system, instead of only to the participants of a transaction.
What are the benefits of DLT?
“DLTs have been a hype topic in the past few years and everyone was talking about it. We actually implemented a real-life platform that addresses current needs and benefits from DLT characteristics such as immutability and distribution. With the launch of the spin-off Blokverse we are focusing our activities in this area with a dedicated company.” – Andrej Vckovski, CEO of Netcetera.
Vladimir Simjanoski, co-founder of Blokverse and former Netcetera management team member had this to say:
“We believe that a proper application of distributed ledger technology (and blockchain, in particular) has a great potential for a significant socio-economic impact. In the next few months, we are set to deploy our Attainr platform for the management of digital educational credentials. Based on the merits of decentralization, Attainr addresses the long lasting challenges in the field of education: secure, tamper-proof creation and issuance of digital credentials which are easily verified by the relying parties. It is very exciting for us to contribute to the already wide array of offerings that the Netcetera companies provide.”
Igor Simjanoski, co-founder and CTO of Blokverse added the following:
“We’re taking a serious look at various blockchain solutions: from public to permissioned, taking into account the underlying economic and technological implications. The particular context mandates the requirements and drives the respective approach. It is our goal to deliver a flexible platform on top of the open standards that works in a different set of circumstances.”
