Twins win national award with blockchain design

Two twin brothers from Shenzhen named Li Junshu and Li Junpeng won the second prize at Blockathon 2018, a national blockchain application design competition held in Beijing, with an inquiry system for validating college applicants’ GPAs on a blockchain application development platform known as Asch on June 25.

The twin brothers are currently studying at Saint Anthony High school in Long Island, New York and will apply to universities this year.

“We learned that some students at international high schools in China change their transcripts and used counterfeit transcripts to apply for universities abroad. We think that’s unfair, so we came up with the idea of creating an inquiry system for GPAs (General Point Average) by using blockchain,” said one of the twin brothers.

This design can help set up an authentication system for verfying GPAs between international high schools in China and overseas universities by entering data to the blockchain, which makes it hard to change the GPA results and establishes an impartial environment for all applicants, according to the twins.

“Many designs using blockchain technology are related to virtual currency, but we created a different one which aims to resolve practical problems associated with GPA, so our idea has real commercial value,” said the younger brother of the twins.

The twins plan to apply to New York University and major in business.
