Students gain from character building technology

Toronto — To help celebrate July as York Region’s Character Community “Integrity” month, York University’s The Blockchain Hub Community Lab (C-Lab) awarded blockchain startup, ReliablyME, supported by speakers from Blockchain education not-for-profits Bitcoin North – Alex Makarski and Dave D’Silva, and Bitcoin Bay – Gaurav Sharma, as well as Toronto Employment & Social Services’ Manager Employer and Workforce Development Stakeholder Engagement – Jennifer Posthumus, introduced character themed blockchain technology to the world.

This year marks the first time blockchain information technology gives citizens an opportunity to objectively demonstrate their ability to honour their word by regularly fulfilling the commitments they register and track digitally. By doing so they will also build their social credit stored in a permanent digital record to authentically demonstrate their character for easier access to higher education, employment, housing, credit, and insurance.

Commemorating York Region’s Character Community “Integrity” month participants of ReliablyME’s Blockchain for Students Meetup, held at York University, on July 24th, were the world’s first recipients of social credit credentials stored on a blockchain.

Blockchain technologies are used to securely store and transfer value digitally in a tamper-proof manner. The best-known use of blockchain technologies is the Bitcoin crypto-currency. Increasingly, this technology is being used to also store non-financial data that must be preserved and protected by its owner. 

Identity attributes, such as social credit credentials, are a prime example of vital information that needs to be controlled by individuals, rather than being entrusted to third parties. Once a person’s earned social credit credential is stored on a blockchain, it cannot be erased or modified and becomes a trusted record that can be relied upon by individuals and organizations for adjudication purposes.

ReliablyME is a new digital branding platform that allows charitable and student organizations to automatically issue sponsor-branded social media “Integrity” badges to citizens every time they fulfill any ReliablyME-registered sign-up commitment. It also offers such organizations and their partners a new source of funding by empowering them to issue sponsored social media badges that serve as logo-displaying billboard for the sponsoring organizations. Sponsoring organizations benefit from the transparency of tracking the performance of their contributions to civic engagement and receive online social media-shareable recognition for having done so.

Marginalized individuals who are financially excluded, because they are either students or at-risk youth or newcomers or even parolees, can develop good integrity habits and receive public recognition for having successfully done so and, thereby, earn their way to becoming included socially and financially.

“We made history on July 24th, when we awarded the world’s first social credit on a blockchain to people who attended the Blockchain for Students Meetup at York University. We are now offering the same opportunity to those signing up for other events, activities, or Meetups.” – says Todd.

The ReliablyME social credit system will be available to any qualifying organization without charge for the months of July and August. Successful applicants will receive a custom countMEin registration button for their sign-up website that automatically awards participants with social media badges and a reliability rating for having participated.

 

“For students, this means they get peer recognition on social media for their authentic self and social worth, while systematically also building their extra-curricular or co-curricular record and producing a report of their mandatory high school volunteer hours.” – says Todd

ReliablyME Inc.(http://ReliablyME.com) is a Toronto-based for-profit social enterprise, piloting the world’s first blockchain-supported social credit system to help people worldwide prosper based on their authentic self and social worth and thereby become less reliant on their earnings.
