Summary:

A tsunami of pressure, transparency, mess, job-cuts and efficiency; just some of the long standing disruptions that Bitcoin brought with it, since its inception 9 years ago in 2009. But, hand in hand with Bitcoin, came another revolution. A revolution touted to change the face of all centralised mediums. The underlying technology behind Bitcoin, that makes it a “Borderless Transparent Mutual Censorship Resistant and Immutable Currency”, Blockchain, is the main aim of this study, along with finding possible solutions and implications in the field of Academics and Education. The fundamental and core concepts of Blockchain are explained with its potential influence in various sectors, mainly Education. Keeping in mind the current state of Academia, Christ University has been taken into consideration as a model for this study.
