Abstract: The proposed system is a ledger of student qualifications that aims at making recruitment processes simpler for the universities, recruiters as well as the students. Instead of continuing with the traditional way, of background checks that take even days worth of time and cost a lot of money, we have proposed an instant student background verification service that allows verification of data by recruiters, that has been signed by the university and uploaded to an immutable, secure ledger called the blockchain or as we call it, the Alumnichain. The students simply have to include a code provided to them, to their CVs which can be scanned by the recruiters, to have all student data instantly verified. The data stored on the network is not in plaintext and is encrypted to ensure security against potential data thefts. All this is achieved through a blockchain implementation of the above described use case, which has proved to be a solution to so many problems since its inception, starting with Bitcoin in 2008.
