Abstract:Blockchain technology has gained a lot of attention mainly due to bitcoin but also for offering immutable public ledgers within decentralized networks. The higher education industry has been adapting to new digital methods over the years and with blockchain already proving to be successful in other industries, this research paper aims to consider the implications of blockchain in higher education. The following paper analyzes the higher education industry as a value chain in order to provide a better understanding of all the actors and their relationships. The research paper then makes three suggestions for blockchain applications and explains how they can benefit to the industry. The next step after making the suggestions is to analyze how the market will change if the industry applies the blockchain-based methods. The research paper then argues what the challenges are with the implementation of these suggestions and takes into account past experiences from the Netherlands and also internationally. Once the suggestions and their limitations are fully discussed, the research paper makes a conclusion on blockchain benefits and challenges and makes suggestions for future research.
