MILESTONE: The 0xcert Framework v1-RC1 is now released

We are super proud to announce that a new chapter has been written in the 0xcert book.

The 0xcert Framework v1-RC1 for developing decentralized apps is now officially released.

After months of hard work, the final result is now published and open for everyone as an open-source framework.

You may find it on our new GitHub repository or learn how to use it and where to implement it in our documentation guidelines.

The Framework was publicly announced last week in Miami, at the North American Bitcoin Conference during the talk by our CEO Kristijan Sedlak.

A framework for all the dapp developers

The 0xcert Framework is aimed at supporting the developer community in building the decentralized world. Up to this date, developing decentralized applications (dapps) took months and whole dedicated teams, and still, there was plenty of room for errors and bugs.

With the goal of bringing the potential of dapps to any business and development teams of any size, we have created a framework as a JavaScript API that drastically reduces the hassle of dealing with distributed systems and applying them to real-world operations and businesses.

Who is it for?

The 0xcert Framework packs all the complexity of developing a decentralized app into a sleek few-lines-long string of code. This way, the professionals facing the task of developing a dapp do not need to have a whole range of decade-long experience. Instead, the knowledge of building a website will do the job.

So if you thought the complexity of blockchain tech is slipping through your fingers and you won't ever be able to grasp it and work with it, it's not too late yet. With the 0xcert Framework, you can build a dapp just as good as any other blockchain developer.

What does it solve?

Let's imagine the 0xcert Framework as a funnel that untangles the complexity of the current way of building a dapp and narrows it all down to just a few lines of code.

But you don't have to push your imagination too hard. Here is what the difference looks like.

Needless to say, this brings enormous reductions to developing time and needed personnel (both equal lower budget). Also, you can be much more confident in the quality of the final outcome, as the Framework follows strict conventions and standards.

The main features of the 0xcert Framework

Apart from making the code a whole lot more cleaner and transparent, the Framework serves as an essential contribution to the decentralized world for the following reasons:

  • It supports creation (minting), management, and verification of ERC-721 non-fungible tokens (assets). This way, you can tokenize and trade any unique item or asset you like on the blockchain.
  • It provides management of ERC-20 fungible tokens (currencies). So you can add a financial value expressed in fungible tokens to your non-fungible ERC-721 asset.
  • It enables and executes many-to-many atomic operations. You can create and transfer multiple tokens (either fungible or non-fungible) on the blockchain in one single transaction.
  • It provides conventions for interoperability between different applications. With this, you can work with many applications in the same way without having to adapt to different systems.

Start building with the 0xcert Framework

A complete guide for building a decentralized app by leveraging the features of the 0xcert Framework can be found here. Depending on the level of your knowledge and the state of development of your dapp, feel free to move through sections in the menu on the left.

You can employ the 0xcert Framework for creating and managing your unique assets on the blockchain, from collectibles, certificates, to tickets and coupons. What's more, you can even build a decentralized exchange for trading them!

At the moment, the Framework is built for developing dapps on the Ethereum blockchain. But not for long, as we will soon add operability for other systems, too, aligned with our blockchain-agnostic commitment.

We strived to make the user flow of the Framework as friendly as possible, and we hope you share our opinion. We believe it is essential for the Framework to be built as an open-source product, and we'll continue supporting the developer community creating a better tomorrow.

If you find the 0xcert Framework useful, we'd love your support - just click the ⭐️ and the 👁️ icons on top of the GitHub repository. Or, do it the old-school way - spread the word among your dev friends and let us know how the Framework worked out for you.

You're also very welcome to join our newly opened Gitter channel and to talk with our devs.

We're excited to see all the good stuff you'll be able to build with the 0xcert Framework, and we hope it serves you well!
