Credlink is the home of digital credentials for Web3. Thanks to the fast, reliable, transparent, and decentralized nature of the web3 ecosystem, certificates or badges can be easily sent to addresses and verified with Credlink dApp. With its immutable nature, certificates cannot be exposed to malicious manipulations and remain permanently on the blockchain.
It all comes from the soul of Web3. Fast, Reliable, Transparent, Secure, and Decentralized. The previous platform solutions have centralized structures that certifications can be manipulated, or vanished, hence it loses the meaning of “certificate”. Credlink allows anyone to instantly confirm that a certificate is valid and up to date.
Certificate means “a document that states that the information on it is true, and that is given to someone as proof that they are, have, or own something”. Well, as we can see, there must be a system that will prove its correctness, and can there be a better solution other than blockchain? With the proposed platform solution Credlink, allows anyone to instantly confirm that a certificate is valid and up to date so can be assured of its reliability and will not be subjected to malicious manipulations.
In addition, the Web3 ecosystem is growing rapidly and it is aimed to reach more audiences. Along with this, many courses and bootcamps are being created. After the completion of the course, there is a need for a platform that will create, and validate all certificate transactions in a simple and convenient way without leaving the Web3 ecosystem. This is where Credlink comes into play.
For example, let’s consider this scenario. Let’s imagine that the DAOs in the Harmony, or Harmony ecosystem itself, are organizing training courses (in fact, many Harmony DAOs have such activities and missions). Certificates can be easily sent to Web3 enthusiasts who have completed the courses, and simply verified, thanks to Credlink.
Harmony ecosystem has shown real support for such authentic, and original projects before, and this is one of the main motivations for us to use the Harmony ecosystem.
We’ve reviewed a number of projects in Harmony and must say we’re very interested in DAOs in the ecosystem. Many of them have a mission to make educational content and carrying out activities in this regard. It is a great opportunity for us to develop a platform where they will make and send the certificates to the recipients at the end of these educational contents in a simple interface while remaining in the Harmony ecosystem!
Harmony has very low gas fees compared to other chains so it is feasible to send multi transactions to the CredLink smart contacts without dealing with gas fees.
With Harmony being EVM compatible, our Solidity experienced software developers will not be unfamiliar with the ecosystem and we will develop the platform quickly.
Realizing that we will have a significant impact by providing other DAOs with a platform they can use, and hence this motivates us.
Certificates or badges will be stored in the IPFS system, thus establishing a permanent and decentralized structure.
Organizations (Issuers) will be able to easily create a certificate quickly with ready-to-use certificate templates.
After the recipient list is requested in CSV or form format, these certificates or badges will be minted to the account addresses of recipients. At the same time, recipients will be informed via e-mail.
All certificates sent to the same recipient account address will be listed when querying by the recipient’s account address.
The metadata of all certificates will be kept permanently on the Harmony network. Thanks to the transparent and reliable structure of Credlink, all certificates and badges will be verifiable, up-to-date, and publicly visible.
No user accounts, no logins, and no “claiming” are necessary for recipients to receive and engage with badges and certificates issued with Credlink. A wallet connection is only required if the recipient wants to edit her/his personal information (name etc.).
Certificates can be shared on social media accounts with one click, as well as downloadable and visible in different file formats.
The platform consists of 4 main parts: Design, Groups, Credentials, and View. The details may change and are open to improvements.
In the design section, the organization (issuer) can design certificates or badges using the built-in editor. The Issuer can use previously defined, ready-to-use CredLink templates, and can change their properties or designs.
In the group section, the Issuer creates a certificate group. The certification group includes the identifier, the name of the certificate, certificate or badge designs that is designed before by the Issuer, a description, etc.
In the credentials section, the Issuer defines the recipients to whom it will send the certificate or badge. Here, the Issuer specifies the recipients’ name, the account address to which the certificate will be minted, the e-mail address, and the issue date. Then, with these defined credentials, the Issuer can mint the certificate at any time by selecting one of the previously defined certificate groups. Minted certificate metadata will be stored in Harmony network, and certificate assets (png image, etc.) will be stored in IPFS for decentralization purposes.
The above three sections are for the issuer, while the view section is for the recipient (or anybody). The Recipient can see this certificate minted in its own name and account address, change its own information by connecting to the Wallet, and verify it. It is also important to know that everyone, not just the recipient, can validate this certificate and be sure of its truthness. In addition, the recipient can view other certificates minted to his/her own account address, and inspect the Issuer.
Ability to successfully mint certificates to recipients’ account addresses.
Successfully storing the metadata of the certificates or badges in the Harmony blockchain and the assets in the IPFS file system and returning the results when they are queried.
Achieving a minimum of 15 Issuers, and 250 credentials within the first month after deploying Harmony Mainnet. Then making it grow by 20 percent every month.
After forming DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig and deploying the platform to the Harmony Mainnet, grow Twitter to +1000 followers and Discord page to 750+ followers in 3 months.
Integrate 10+ Harmony DAOs to the Credlink platform! Let DAOs send certificates or badges earned as a result of educational content or technical events to recipients.
