How DISCIPLINA works
DISCIPLINA is a multifunctional blockchain for projects in the fields of education and recruitment. It will store confidential information, such as the courses, students’ tasks, grades, and test results. Therefore, public blockchain solutions, which store all of their transactions in open access — Ethereum or EOS, for example — are unacceptable. At the same time, private blockchain solutions, such as Hyperledger, do not provide enough verifiability of the data stored on them.
DISCIPLINA is a private-public blockchain. The private segment has been introduced in order to store private and personal user data, as well as those materials that are protected by copyright or commercial confidentiality. Such data includes the information on students and educational institutions.
An educational institution is any state or private online and offline organisation that conducts any and all educational activity. Private tutors are also included. It can even be a simple marketplace offering the sale of study materials. Every educational institution has its private chain and the opportunity to monetize educational records stored there. Recruiters and other interested parties are offered paid access to the information about the academic history and achievements of the students.
The public segment provides the access to the data that verifies the integrity of the private chains and the reliability of the data stored by the network.
The validity of the segments within the private blockchains of the educational institutions will be checked by Witnesses. They will manage public chain of blocks, on which the data created within each educational institution is hashed. The witnesses won’t have access to the data itself, only to the hashes of the data.
