The company: NextID is a 2-year old Singapore-based company with a revolutionary approach to issuing verifiable digital certificates. The company's NextCert service is designed to fit any business use case, including awards, health status, authenticity of documents, artwork and copyright proofs, etc. All of these certificates are anchored to a blockchain, so are permanent and tamper proof.

Our unique value proposition is to easily produce the most trusted and attractive digital certificates for any business use case. Following are some key points about our certificate services.

  • NextID is a services company and revenue is based on fees paid by certificate issuers, including schools, academies, healthcare providers, document management companies, etc.

  • Our flagship NextCert™ is a web-based application used to issue and manage verifiable digital certificates. The app family includes the free NextCert Viewer and Verifier. A NextCert Credentials Wallet is coming soon. These apps are available to issuers on a pay-per-use or subscription model. The company also offers data-processing services and has a full API for system integrators.

  • NextCert technology is compatible with multiple blockchains, supports multiple use cases and offers unlimited flexibility for the graphical design of certificates.

  • Our certificates rely on international standards and can be easily shared via social media. For example, a one-click feature lets recipients add certificates to their LinkedIn profiles.

  • Our certificates can also be minted as tradeable NFTs. This is a very exciting development for digital artists and marketeers who produce coupons.
