It’s a direction that the WSBA and Positrust are taking with implementing the WSBA Certification Framework as it rolls out. In short, the WCF will be using blockchain technology to support tamper proof content dissemination and authenticated certificate issuance. It will be of practical use and also is a great way for candidates to learn about real-life uses of blockchain.
This application of blockchain might seem a bit contrived, but efforts are underway to have WCF subject to both national and international accreditation, so this level of security and due process will be important to establish the framework as credible for all stakeholders, including candidates, employers, recruiters, etc.
There’s more information in the press release here. WCF courses are scheduled for the next few weeks and registration is open.
