The emerging of blockchain technology has been associated with the revolution of World Wide Web that going to transform from Web 2.0 into Web 3.0. The blockchain network reduces the dependency of centralized and turning into decentralized network in the Web 3.0 era. In the decentralized network, the threat of data breaching can be eliminated where none of party has the authority to control over user digital badges in education. In this case, all the data will be distributed over the whole network. Furthermore, the weak vulnerability of Internet of Things (IoT) toward Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) has stimulated the development of blockchain technology as a solution. Blockchain technology has released a computer program as smart contract with the generation of token to authorize the flow of user into IoT network for strengthen the security and privacy of IoT network. Last but not least, the challenge to develop an effective blockchain network is the most challenging task since it requires deep understanding of blockchain technology.
