What is an NFT Certificate?
NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger. They use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership. Our NFT certifications are the perfect example of a credential that benefits from an NFT’s proof of ownership. Since these digital documents are available on the blockchain, they can’t be duplicated or fabricated. As hiring organizations look for easier and more economical ways to verify credentials, the use of NFTs ensures the information can’t be tampered with and is easily accessible to the public.

It is very important to ensure that you write down the passphrase provided to you on paper, and to lock it in a safe, safety deposit box, or a drawer with a lock. If you lose this passphrase you lose access to your account.
