ABOUT US

Digit.ink

Our blockchain certificates and badges change the way educators, students, businesses, and healthcare providers interact.

Adding extra context and removing back-and-forth verification makes it easy to identify job candidates, communicate skills, and understand records.

We do this with a software-as-a-service platform for creating, issuing, and managing blockchain credentials. With our platform, you can create anything from diplomas and certifications to test results, IDs, government documents, medical records, and more.

Mission

To increase trust and efficiency for educators, job seekers, hiring managers, healthcare professionals, and patients through verifiable skills, certifications, records, and more.

Our Principles

best credentials

Demonstration

Credentials should show even more than they tell; they should illustrate skills and findings rather than list them.

Inspect

Integrity

Our credentials are 100% fraud-proof, so we vet our partners thoroughly before letting them issue credentials.

multi-format credentials and badges

Flexibility

Our partners have various needs: Our credentials need to fit them, not the other way around.

verifiable credentials

Privacy

Issuers can always revoke, delete, download, and export their credentials. Not to mention, they’re independently verifiable.

improve student outcomes

Efficacy

Blockchain credentials should have a larger practical impact than their counterparts, increasing credibility and reducing friction.

Credential goal

Accuracy

Credentials should represent genuine skills, accomplishments, measurements, and more.

The 3 Credentialing Stakeholders

Credentials have three users: the issuers, the recipients, and the verifiers. We have built our platform specifically to satisfy the needs of these three stakeholders.

Verification process

Flow of a credential

Issuers

Anyone who creates and administers credentials is an issuer. Examples include schools, credentialing bodies, and healthcare providers. Their needs vary, but often relate to simple issuing, content flexibility, cohort management, and brand recognition.

Recipients

Anyone who is issued a credential is a recipient. Examples include students or graduates, patients, and professional license-holders. Their needs often revolve around the usefulness of the credential itself: Does it verify and demonstrate their skills, condition, or knowledge?

Verifiers

Anyone who reviews a credential is a verifier. Examples include hiring managers, admissions officers, physicians, and government officials. Their needs involve speed, accuracy, validity, and simplicity. Verifiers are trying to answer a specific question, and our credentials make that process easier.
