ABSTRACT
Imagine a meritocratic world
where rewards are distributed in a fair and objective manner to
those who truly stand out for their abilities, proving themselves to be cut out for a job.
It would be a perfect world.
Moved by this ideal and by the skills that members of our team have individually developed in
their respective fields, we have created Skillchain, a protocol that can comprehensively certify all
past and present experiences of people.
Skillchain allows academic education institutions around the world to interact quickly and easily,
certifying students' career paths, the qualifications they earned and exams they took.
Skillchain's goal is to bring clarity to the job world
by making sure that candidates' resumes are
not merely based on self-declarations, but are the result of certified and swift interactions with the
institutions they come from.
Our protocol will be made available to Universities and non-academic education companies to
store data such as diplo...

WHY BLOCKCHAIN? ............

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
Blockchain technology is ideally suited for making certificates more secure and intuitive. It's a
distributed ledger which can contain any record, not just monetary transactions.
What makes it special is that it is durable, secure, and its transparency is decentralized. These
characteristics, in our opinion, make it a perfect fit for use in the Skillchain project.
Once a data item, a certificate, or a skill gets stored in the blockchain, it can be verified by
anyone.
Furthermore, blockchain is censorship resistant. There is no organization which controls the data
on the blockchain, and both data and transactions, once written on the blockchain, can't be
altered. This property ensures that the certificate on the blockchain is not a fake one.
Users have complete control over the certificate, and they can choose whether to share it or not.
MARKET ANALYSIS
Education is a key social resource, which is seen as as a right in many countries. The education
industry is co...

Figure 1. Literacy Levels from 1800 to 2014.
Every country, of course, benefits directly from a more educated workforce.
For example, in the United States, the total public costs incurred for a male to attain a tertiary
education diploma are estimated at $64,200, while the benefits resulting from their income
earnings and social contribution are estimated at $328,000, giving a total net benefit of $264,000.
The net benefits from education of women are instead estimated at just $112,000.

Higher levels of education are typically associated with higher levels of educational accessibility.
This improves rates of social mobility, economic equality, and social cohesion.
Additionally, education has a series of intrinsic individual and public benefits.
Higher levels of individual and social education are strongly associated with lower levels of crime,
better life satisfaction, and have been shown to result in improved health outcomes.
All in all, education holds tremendous power as a ...

The global education market has increased from $4.4 trillion in 2012 to almost $5 trillion in 2017,
and it is estimated to reach $6.3 trillion in 2020.
In recent years, education has become a globally traded commodity.
The global population of students who move to another country to study was 5 million in 2014,
and it is estimated to reach over 8 million students per year by 2025.

Students from Asia represent more than half (53%) of the international students enrolled in
master’s and doctoral programs in the various OECD countries.
NON-ACADEMIC EDUCATION
The non-academic education market encompasses online and offline courses aimed at enhancing,
both theoretically and practically, students' specific skills.
Non-academic learning takes place outside the formal education system, and is aimed at
facilitating personal, social and technical growth of participants.
Over the past few years, especially, the development of skills through online and offline training
programs has become ver...

Non-academic education has become key for companies pursuing personnel development, by
focusing on operational efficiency as well as individual and group performance levels, thus
contributing to enhancing corporate assets, much like a traditional academic career path would
do.
This is why a growing number of companies have taken, or are taking, to internally training their
employees through platforms, courses, and educational materials, in line with the specific needs
of the individual and the company.
The topics addressed on non-academic paths are extremely varied, as indicated in the chart
below, but there is no unified database where skills acquired by an individual are unequivocally
certified, which may instead be extremely significant for recruiters and companies.

THE RECRUITING AND JOB MARKET
The job market is immersed in what is called the 'Fourth Industrial Revolution' or 'Industry 4.0',
and operates within the confines of three different large talking-point clusters:
3. Innovation: growing integration between hi-tech tools and businesses that generates
newproduction models and, in turn, new work categories;

4. Digitalization: the digital era promotes efficiency and productivity;

5. Revolution: change takes place by moving from a cultural revolution to a structural one,
whichfundamentally revolves around having the courage to change in order to stay
marketable.
The goal of industry 4.0 is to create new jobs that are the result of a high degree of cooperation
between workers and technologies.
New players have emerged on the heels of this trend: job boards (LinkedIn, Monster, Indeed) are
platforms that operate on a global market, seeking to meet the required demands of speed,
automation and specialization.
As a matter of ...

8. In terms of corporate business, as companies have to invest resources (both in time and
money) in managing information, rather than devote resources to development.
The working professional issue emerges even more starkly for professions that require licensure to
practice, such as lawyers, doctors, and dentists.
The impact of this not only affects individuals' ability to service customers, but also insurance
coverage in the event of wrongdoing and subsequent compensation.
EDUCATION AND WORK ISSUES
What motivated so many professionals to team up to create Skillchain was a shared feeling of
dissatisfaction that all of us exhibited in our respective industries, which can be summed up as
follows:
Lack of a unified DataBase to certify all past educational or working
experiences required to fill vacancies within companies.
Big portals (LinkedIn, Monster, etc.) have succeeded in filling the gap between businesses and
potential candidates by actually creating a Database prototype.
