World Jiu-Jitsu Certifier (WJJC) has revealed a strategic partnership with smart contract platform Moonbeam Network and blockchain infrastructure provider W3block for the launch of a global certification non-fungible token (NFT) platform tailored for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners and masters.
According to a press release shared with Cryptoflies, the platform seeks to address a significant challenge in martial arts, specifically in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, by introducing a standardized method for validating an individual’s skill level, replacing conventional hand-signed letters and paper certificates with blockchain-immortalized NFTs.
The platform’s primary objective is to foster unity within the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community through a blockchain-driven registration and certification process that offers users a transparent, accessible, and tamper-proof means of accessing and verifying their competencies and accomplishments.
Users can access the platform using their existing Web2 credentials, which will generate a wallet. A Master, verified and endorsed within WJJC’s network, can then certify users with a graduation represented by an NFT airdropped to the user’s wallet.
The platform — already accessible — will evolve into a comprehensive database housing certifications earned by global BJJ practitioners. It will also record tournaments, leagues, and championships, allowing practitioners to not only showcase their graduations on the blockchain but also highlight their notable accomplishments.
With this launch, WJJC joins a growing trend where NFTs have become a notable use case for certificates, observed across various industries and institutions.
Notably, the Sharjah Government launched an NFT-based certificate platform in October, marking a significant shift from traditional paper certificates to secure digital documents. Similarly, in February, Binance started issuing NFT certificates for individuals who complete its academy courses.
