DISCIPLINA unites students, educational institutions (including private tutors), employers and recruiters. The users will interact with each other and the DISCIPLINA platform through applications with a convenient interface, providing a wide range of platform functions.
DISCIPLINA is an open-source blockchain, which can be used as a basis for application development by anyone. TeachMePlease will be the first project in the field of education based on the DISCIPLINA blockchain platform.
DISCIPLINA will store confidential information, such as the courses, students’ tasks, grades, and test results. Therefore, public blockchain solutions, which store all of their transactions in open access — Ethereum or EOS, for example — are unacceptable. At the same time, private blockchain solutions, such as Hyperledger, do not provide enough verifiability of the data stored on them.
Unlike traditional PoW mining, the DISCIPLINA platform provides energy-efficient PoS minting. The users will get rewards for any productive activity devoted to transaction processing and supporting the network. The network rewards the users proportionally to the volume of DSCP tokens on the balance of each user.
Using the Web of Trust, the users will be able to set the level of trust in each other themselves.
To check the validity of transactions in public chain, so-called «Witnesses» will use a consensus algorithm based on Proof-of-Stake technology, which provides the high speed and low price of transaction. The report on PoS algorithm actualisation is delineated in greater detail in the technical documentation of the project.
The Witnesses, as in other cryptocurrencies, will be rewarded for the launch of each block with commission fees from transactions made in that block. The probability that the Witness will become the block-leader is proportional to the number of tokens on his account.
Student will be able to fully or partially deny access to his personal data.
User personal data is stored on the private chains of the educational institutions. The public part of the network has only hashes of this data. Thus, private data remains reliable and safe at the same time.
The DISCIPLINA architecture stores the data on student academic achievement on the private chains of educational institutions. This could cause the problem of data unavailability in the event that that educational institution stops using the network or that their equipment malfunctions.
DISCIPLINA solves this problem by also storing the copies of all the data in student’s personal profile – thus it will be easy to prove the authenticity of the data by accessing the old records in public chain and checking the hashes.
DISCIPLINA is an open-source blockchain. Any educational or recruiting service will be able to use it in their projects that store and process the personal data. The functions of the platform will be performed through the DISCIPLINA node. The platform will provide the public API for the convenient interoperation of the services with the DISCIPLINA nodes.
