0xcert is the first open protocol built to support the future of digital assets, powered by the non-fungible tokens.

Project stage


Detailed description

0xcert is an open-source permissionless protocol for non-fungible tokens on the blockchain. Conventions and upgraded functionality for non-fungible tokens Non-fungible tokens built with 0xcert conventions are called Xcerts. Conventions are community-driven standard data inputs and are determined for each asset type. Xcerts represent standard non-fungible tokens, which also hold an imprint of an asset. With the 0xcert protocol, we can further validate proof of existence, authenticity and ownership of these assets without third-party involvement.

Decentralised exchange is one of the key supporting components in the 0xcert framework. DEX represents a set of smart contracts installed on the blockchain which allow for a trustless exchange of multiple different types of fungible and non-fungible tokens as single atomic operations. Although not all NFTs are meant to be traded (ID, credentials,...), most others (art, collectibles,...) are seeking additional liquidity, which can be provided through an exchange.

The purpose of 0xcert is not only to build out a technological layer, but also to unite the community around NFTs. Therefore, we will work with different stakeholders on different levels, ranging from R&D in the 0xcert Labs, further 0xcert protocol development as well as with protocol users and the general NFT space.


The lack of conventions prevents interoperability among applications. Developers trying to develop their own decentralised application using non-fungible tokens face long development time and huge risk in their development process and security, lowering the overall efficiency and adoption rate. The resulting ecosystem of digital assets is under risk of being fragmented, with non-interoperable dapps and underlying data. One of the major problems in the future may not be the technological barrier to issuing ownership rights of different unique assets on the blockchain, but rather the authenticity of issuing entities. Currently there is no mechanism to attest credible NFT issuers.


The vision of 0xcert is to provide an open protocol for standardized and certified non-fungible tokens to a wider tech audience. With 0xcert, you can build on top of the non-fungible token standard, employing a complete toolset, development framework, and a set of conventions for various use cases. This results in shorter development time, lower risk and cuts cost associated with developing blockchain solutions. A wide range of decentralized applications and business models can be supported, giving companies the power to fully utilize the potential of blockchain technology. 0xcert is an open source protocol that translates one-of-a-kind digital or real-world assets into non-fungible tokens (NFTs) - unique proof of ownership available from the blockchain.


Certification and verification of assets
Deploy non-fungible tokens on the blockchain, store them in cryptographic wallets, own or transfer them. Validate their existence, authenticity and ownership without third-party involvement.

A set of functions for developers
With 0xcert you can create smart contracts for your ICO, utilize our framework for your own token development, and help yourself out with dapp creation methods. The same protocol applies to various fields and industries, enhancing its interoperability.

Decentralized applications
With our secure blockchain agnostic platform, powerful tools and community embraced conventions for managing non-fungible tokens, 0xcert becomes a pluggable settlement with an advanced integration layer for different dapps and relay applications.

Unique and agnostic
ZXC utility tokens (fungible ERC-20 tokens) support dapps built on top of the 0xcert protocol with minimum possible fees. 0xcert open source project strives to be community driven, allowing for its decentralized governance.
