In order to solve the problem of forged certificates, the digital certificate system based on blockchain technology would be proposed. By the immutable property of blockchain, the digital certificate with anti-counterfeit and verifiability could be made. During the course of education, the students achieve many certificates. While applying for jobs students produce these certificates, where these are verified manually. There can be incidents where students may produce the fake certificate and it is difficult to identify them. This problem of fake academic certificates has been a longstanding issue in the academic community. It is possible to create such certificates at low cost and the process to verify them is very complex. This problem can be solved by generating the digital certificates on the blockchain. The blockchain technology provides immutability and publicly verifiable transactions. These properties of Blockchain can be used to generate the digital certificate which are anti-counterfeit and easy to verify. It is because the generated digital certificate cannot be edited or modified since it is generated through blockchain, which makes it unchangeable.
