Currently, there is no way to verify when a person's LinkedIn says, "Graduated from Harvard.", "Works at Google" or "Startup VC." It is convenient to self-claim identities and affiliations on social platforms, and people fall prey to scams run by such identities. Doc3 aims to build a "Proof of Affiliation" for individuals. So the next time you graduate from Harvard, the institute will issue a non-transferable certificate to you that verifies your affiliation with the institute. As a person progresses through their career, their professional and academic affiliations will be verifiable, and their resume will be built automatically on the chain. Individuals will have a unique URL that showcases their associations. This URL can be shared on existing social platforms or shared directly as their resume.
The significant challenges are around associating with institutes to provide affiliation certificates to individuals.
