The Maltese government has recently launched its first initiative regarding blockchain technology to start issuing notarised blockchain certificates for professional and informal education. In this respect, Malta is the first country to use this technology for education certification. This is part of the government's vision to be a market leader in the implementation of this technology and to increase efficiency and transparency in public sector services.  To implement this pilot project, a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) has been entered by the Education Ministry and the international company Learning Machine.

The three institutions which will be the first to grant certification through blockchain technology are: the Malta College for Art, Science and Technology (MCAST); the Institute for Tourism Studies (ITS); and the National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE).
