    Hi all,

    1) I am a blockchain consultant with Tata Consulting Services. I mainly work on strategy and innovation for clients in communications, media, oil and gas, and mining; however, I have a strong personal interest in higher education. I have had a few discussions with blockchain startups and entrepreneurs in the EdTech space, particularly around tying digital identity to qualifications and accreditations, as well as to project work and other claims.

    2) I am interested to explore how we can use blockchain to reduce qualifications fraud and remove barriers to matching capable, qualified people to quality jobs. I’ve written an article on Linkedin that further describes my hope for blockchain in learning, skills development, and recruiting: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/blockchain-foundation-decentralized-learning-skills-justin-kersey/

    I look forward to collaborating with this group!

    Sounds like we have much in common, Justin – helping people get jobs in a blockchain enabled economy. After reading your article, I see you have begun to address how blockchain education (and I agree, unless traditional HE can change then they will be marginalized – I am working on that from the inside!).

    Tossing a question out to the group – wondering if you (Justin) or anyone else in the group have given any thought to what skills emerging professionals need to develop to succeed in a blockchain-enabled economy? I know it is pretty straightforward for technology, but what about other functional areas in an organization? Also, what will be the impact on business processes and corresponding organizational structure?
