Initially Blockchain was discussed by the
masses as a fundamental technology of cryptocurrency.
Today, it is considered as an opportunity to keep
information steadily, which can be used in erstwhile
unexplored industries and it can have an incredibly huge
effect on the industries’ development. In the research it
is discussed the opportunities and challenges of using
blockchain technologies in the education sector. On one
hand, the main goal of the research is, to analyse the
benefits and point of view of blockchain’s establishment
(introduction), and on the other hand, to study the use of
blockchain as an action to simplify processes, and make
them efficient. The research was conducted in the
Republic of Georgia, in three different directions: a
students’ survey, an employers’ survey and a survey and
analysis of the opinions of representatives of higher
educational institutions. As a result of the research, three
different segments, that could get a benefit from
decisions made by using blockchain, have been analysed.
