0xcert is an open source permissionless protocol for non-fungible tokens on the blockchain. These tokens are stored in cryptographic wallets and are owned by users. In addition to common functions for transferring and managing standard non-fungible tokens, the 0xcert protocol provides another layer of conventions for creating certified non-fungible tokens for unique assets. These tokens are called Xcerts and are created through a custom minting process. Xcerts represent opinionated non-fungible tokens, which also hold an imprint of an asset. With 0xcert protocol, we can validate a proof of existence, authenticity and ownership of these digital assets without third-party involvement.
0xcert is a framework with a set of on-chain and off-chain rules for managing Xcerts and other standard non-fungible tokens. Our mission is to equip application developers with a secure blockchain agnostic platform, powerful tools and community embraced conventions for managing non-fungible tokens. 0xcert is a pluggable settlement with an advanced integration layer for different dapps and relay applications. This enables developers to focus on the application layer and quickly build applications for issuing university certificates, KYC applications, applications for loyalty programs, warranties, badges, credits or even a decentralized non-fungible exchange.
