Using Smart Contracts to issue Tamper-Proof Certificates

Generate Smart Contract

Legitt makes the process of creating Smart Certificates easy and convenient

Certificates issued by various organizations and authorities serve as a proof of achievement/accomplishment for the party that has been issued the certificate. Many of these certificates are too important to land into wrong hands or misused by tampering them to alter the details.  

But, the problem is that currently there is hardly any reliable to check the authenticity of the certificates. Until you reach out to the authority that has issued the certificate there is no method for checking the authenticity. Even when the issuing authority checks the authenticity there are only a limited parameter on which the verification can be done. 

The second major problem here is that if you have to check the authenticity of the certificate immediately it cannot be done. The whole process may take from a few days to a few weeks and even months. 

Using Blockchain to issue ‘Smart Certificates’

Both of the issues mentioned above can easily be solved by using blockchain to issue certificates as smart contracts issues using blockchain. This ensures that no one can tamper with the certificates as the blockchain will make the certificate invalid if any information in it has been tweaked. Even the smallest change in the document makes it invalid.

It also resolves the second issue of traditional certificates taking days and weeks for checking the validity from the institute that issued them. If the access is made public, one can check the legitimacy and validity of the certificate in seconds.
