I am an Investment Advisor rep, so a “credential” that I have is my Series 65.

The Series 65 is an exam that FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) administers and NASAA (North American Securities Administrators Association) creates/maintains.

To my knowledge there is no digital badge proving I have this license, but there are obviously other, more traditional ways to verify my having it.

My wife and I are legal “Guardians” in New York State for our 21 year old Autistic son.

When we die, we have his Brother to take care of him, but there are tens of thousands that don’t have the support that we have. If his “Autism Paperwork” gets lost, he loses all sorts of benefits. Let’s put his Guardianship on the Blockchain, and when my wife and I die, it transfers to his brother or entity that can then execute his estate.

This is the stuff that the Blockchain can add REAL value to peoples live :grinning:

My suggestion to all Crypto people is to stop trying to get my Connecticut born wife to give up her credit cards!! :sweat_smile: Sure it will happen at some point, but the most vulnerable are the ones that need Blockchain support. Here is my work with Afghan women 5 or so years ago, and now I am focused on my Autistic son’s population - https://medium.com/@carousel51/roya-mahboob-our-country-s-good-a-cultural-exchange-at-trevor-day-school-in-nyc-86b6a6b9131e

@michaelsweeney I totally agree that Blockchain has a lot to offer in pretty much every sphere of our lives. Here at Dock we are bringing change one step at a time allowing users to store and verify their lifetime credentials, as well as allowing organizations to issue certificates and badges that will not “get lost” if the paper gets lost.

Those are definitely credentials @Stephanus! If you don’t mind my asking, what organization or educational institution issued these credentials to you?

Using digital credentiasl as a way for proving marketable, professional skills like yours is an area we’re strongly emphasizing at Dock (Diplomas, degrees, etc fall under this focus). You can expect us to keep growing in this area, so stay tuned :+1:

I appreciate the offer! Your responses here are very helpful.

Have you considered the impact of issuing a digital certificate of approval for products that move through a supply chain? With baking the details of the certificate into each one, you could create proof that each specific item meets a certain standard of quality or origin or other relevant criteria.

@Stephanus, check these resources out…

  • Case study on digital badges for undergrads (wasn’t open badges compliant, so sub-optimal but still good info)
  • IMS Global is behind the Open Badges 2.0 standard that many issuers of digital credentials comply with. This page is the homebase for the specs, and their news section has some good content on the ecosystem for digital badges/credentials.
  • Our content piece on the benefits an organization receives by issuing micro credentials. (digital badges, micro credentials, digital credentials, etc are all similar - they’re a bit of data that proves your accomplishment, skill, or status)

Let me know what you think, and if you have any questions feel free to post them!
