DEMO: Registree - a decentralized student database connecting students, universities and employers
Ownership of your data implies the right to exclude others from using it. However, today students have no control over what happens with their data. At Registree, we believe that you should own your data and have full control over how it is used! To realize this vision, we’ve built a platform where universities can store sensitive student data in a shared database that guarantees privacy and gives students full control over who has access to their sensitive data. Universities want to provide the optimal support for each and every student. This includes guiding students through their academic pursuits and providing them with access to quality graduate jobs. Registree’s dashboard is the perfect tool to do just that. See https://registree.rocks/ for more information.
