Having identified data manipulation, integrity, and security as a major problem, both within the DHI ecosystem and nationally, the team proposed blockchain-based software development as their solution.

They believe that data issues can be mitigated by storing crucial data on the blockchain network so that it becomes immutable. Their proposed deliverable would be a hybrid blockchain web-based and mobile application. Through this, the team would be able to cater customized solutions to the unique requirements of the Bhutanese market.

In addition to their final presentation, the team showcased the endless possibilities of such a solution through a demo. They highlighted the need for a central verification system, especially in the case of verifying educational backgrounds. Through their demo, the team was able to demonstrate the possibility of storing and verifying education certificates on the public blockchain network.
