Abstract / Description
The Blockchain technology has witnessed boost in adaptability with respect to its application especially in distributed public ledgers dealing in the financial and academic sectors. However, the major drawbacks of this technology cause hindrance for sustaining in a longer run. Which is why applications solely built on Blockchain might also witness a decrease in their adaptability. Tangle, on the other hand, provides a more suitable and reliable system which also address the drawbacks of Blockchain. In this paper, we propose a framework to authenticate academic degrees and certificates build on Tangle so that the intermediate and middle parties which verify the transaction or data are eliminated, having a decentralized control with complete visibility to all the actors involved in the system. Additionally, Tangle provides a quantum resistant architecture that too without any significant charge.
