National 16:03 February 14, 2022

SEOUL, Feb. 14 (Yonhap) -- Sungkyunkwan University said Monday it will present the country's first university awards in the format of the non-fungible token (NFT) in a graduation ceremony this week.

Moon Kyung-won, a pharmacy major, will be one of several students to be given the NFT-based certificates of the university's awards in the graduation ceremony set for Wednesday, the school said.

Those awards represent the first-ever official university certificates presented in the crypto asset format.

An NFT is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, which can be owned and traded as digital items, such as videos or clothing for avatars.

The university said the NFT certificate is immune to loss or duplication and will be effective as an official document.
