Factom Badges Make Decentralized Web Certificates Easy to Integrate and Extensible
Factom Badges are blockchain-based digital certificates and funded by the Factom grant pool.
“Factom Badges are based on an open standard, Open Badges, enabling interoperability. In fact, thousands of organizations across the world already issue Open Badges, from non-profits to major employers and educational institutions at all levels.
Because of this, recipients can combine multiple badges from different Issuers and from different systems to tell the complete story of their verifiable achievements—both online and offline.
To learn more about Factom Badges check out the launch post: https://blog.factomprotocol.org/factom-badges-for-diplomas-certificates-achievements-and-competencies/
