It isn’t uncommon to hear about blockchain nowadays. Some predict this decentralized technology could be as revolutionary as the internet was in the 90’s, modernizing the way humans communicate across the globe.

“I have been talking with people about revitalizing the legislative mandate for a statewide universal student ID,” Feng Hou, CIO at Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) told The Wall Street Journal. “I believe with legislative support, the solution could be developed on blockchain.

The demand is high and we can provide the answer if the investment is made.”
