Quantum-Proofing the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/quantum-proofing-the-blockchain/
Nov 23, 2017 - This project examines the quantum threat to blockchain technology, with its heavy reliance on public-key cryptography. It underscores the urgent need for quantum-resistant algorithms, international standards for cryptosystems, and a large-scale retooling of information and communications technology infrastructure worldwide. The authors distinguish types of quantum adversaries and analyze our options—from patching methods to building quantum-resistant blockchains from scratch.
Blockchain Revolution in Education and Lifelong Learning
File Type: Document
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-revolution-in-education-and-lifelong-learning/
Apr 22, 2019 - Updated in collaboration with the IBM Institute for Business Value, this project explores how blockchain is transforming education with an emphasis on lifelong learning and the reskilling of the workforce. It covers not just traditional educational institutions but also corporate training and development, where innovators are using blockchain to establish student identity, protect privacy, finance coursework, measure progress, and record badges of achievement and skills mastery. The implementation of microcredentialing capabilities, pay-as-you-learn funding models, and massively open online courses, plus the co-creation of open educational re...
Toward a Universal Digital Wallet

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/toward-a-universal-digital-wallet/
Nov 13, 2020 - For cryptocurrencies and other blockchain technologies to scale in adoption as the Internet did, people need more human-friendly ways to use them. We believe that the digital wallet is one such way. Digital wallets are pieces of software that hold digital things of value for us, such as money, ID cards, and documents such as receipts. They enable us to make payments, prove our identities, record and verify our actions and transactions, and aggregrate and manage our cryptoassets such bitcoin, ether, or derivatives of cryptocurrencies. Eventually, we expect them to capture and protect our Internet browsing, online shopping, and other streams of...
Blockchain Revolution in Higher Education
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-revolution-in-higher-education/
May 25, 2018 - This project explores how blockchain is transforming education with a focus on higher ed—vocational schools, community colleges, universities, and corporate training and development—from establishing student identity, protecting their privacy, financing their coursework, measuring their progress, and recording their credentials of achievement through open data exchange protocols. The development of microcredentialing capabilities, pay-as-you-learn funding models, and massively open online courses, plus the co-creation of open educational resources, are making the meta-university and lifelong learning affordable and accessible for more stu...
The Convergence of Big Data and Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/the-convergence-of-big-data-and-blockchain/
Dec 15, 2017 - This project explores how blockchain will change business models dependent on free big data. Distributed ledger technology will enable instant payment networks, loyalty schemes, aggregated metadata, multi-jurisdiction processes, and transactions within multinationals, potentially without liability for customer data and in compliance with EU General Data Protection Regulation.
