Citizens lose a lot of time and effort first in getting their documents and then having them authenticated or verified by third parties. Issuing authorities have to manage huge repositories of papers and are quite at sea when it comes to authenticating or verifying documents submitted to them officially. To resolve the above problem, we developed a web application called docswallet which acts as a web platform using blockchain for e-submitting and e-sharing authenticated documents. The application creates a network of document issuing organisations such as universities, banks or corporates to share digital documents with relying parties (i.e. visa offices or corporates) after receiving the consent of the document owner (i.e. student or employee). The application also helps prevention of fake documents.
