    SUNx and WISeKey Announce the World’s First “Earth Watch” NFT auction

    SUNx and WISeKey Announce the World’s First “Earth Watch” NFT auction The Auction will be the first NFT sale for sustainable development and climate resilience causes Geneva, Switzerland: Brussels Belgium – April 19, 2021 - WISeKey International Holding Ltd (NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX: WIHN), a leading cyber security, IoT, and AI platform company, today announced that in cooperation with global initiative for Climate Friendly Travel SUNx — Strong Universal Network, it has created the first ever Non-Fungible Token (NFT) related to climate change and sustainability. For more information visit: https://goodtourismblog.com/2021/04/time-to-be-strong-nft-earth-swatch-auction-benefit-tourism-recovery-climate-causes/. The first-off-the-line “Earth Swatch” watch, designed by climate activist and sustainable development pioneer Maurice Strong for the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, with the theme “In Our Hands,” is going up for auction this Earth Day, April 22 at 15:00 CET. The auction will run until 18:00 CET on June 5, 2021, which is the World Environment Day. The watch was given to Mr. Strong’s widow, Hanne Strong, by the wife of Swatch founder Nicolas Hayek. Ms. Strong, in turn, is donating the watch for the “cyber auction.” This Earth Swatch will be given an eternal digital life with certified ownership and authenticity. This digital twin will be the "authentic" double of the physical watch in the digital space. To launch the NFT sale, WISeKey Founder Carlos Moreira, and SUNx President Geoffrey Lipman, will host a virtual seminar with: Hanne Strong, President of the Manitou Foundation USA, Felix Dodds, Co-Author with Maurice Strong of “Only One Earth USA,” Mirian Vilela, Executive Secretary of the Earth Charter Institute established by Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev in 2000, and JinFeng Zhou, Secretary General of CBCGDF China. During the virtual seminar, speakers will discuss the charities that will benefit from the NFT auction, as well as the vision of Mr. Strong who first called Climate Change existential back in 1972 and spent his life building a global response system, which is today embodied by the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement. The winner of the auction will take ownership of the digital twin of Hanne Strong’s original Earth Swatch, a timepiece that served to raise funds to take 150 Non-governmental organizations to the 1992 Earth Summit, starting the engagement of Civil Society in Sustainability Agenda. The NFT will be created during the Webinar: The “Strong Earth NFT” – It’s in Our Hands.

    WISeKey and Jacob & Co join forces to NFT a Masterpiece - the Astronomia Sky – the epitome of 21st century haute horlogerie

    WISeKey and Jacob & Co join forces to NFT a Masterpiece – Astronomia Sky – the epitome of 21st century haute horlogerie Both companies successfully conducted last week world premieres to auction both physical and virtual NFTs with an unpreceded attention to their combined leadership https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/12/fashion/watches-nft-auction-jean-claude-biver.html GENEVA – April 16, 2021: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, Blockchain and IoT company, today announced that it has joined forces with Jacob & Co to NFT the Astronomia Sky, the epitome of 21st century haute horlogerie and a globally recognized symbol of Jacob & Co watchmaking expertise. This cooperation comes after the successful launch of two world premieres last week on which WISeKey auctioned the NFT of the first digital twin of a physical watch , the Hublot Bigger Bang All Black Tourbillon Chronograph Special Piece by Jean-Claude Biver, and simultaneously the Jacob & Co NFT a 3-D animation produced by the brand and inspired by its Epic SF24 travel watch with two added features to make it a bespoke digital creation, a tourbillon and a split-flap system displaying the names of 10 cryptocurrencies. The watch was bought by Hugo Pingray and Amaury Mamou-Mani as a 30th birthday gift to Pierre Vannineuse, their co-founding partner at the Alpha Blue Ocean Group. The unique watch is engraved with the three partner’s initials, “PHA”, and Alpha Blue Ocean’s logo. The engraving will be reflected on the NFT of this masterpiece using WISeKey’s technology that promises to revolutionize the watch industry. The Astronomia Sky introduces new complications of celestial inspiration to Astronomia: a sidereal display, vertical month display, zodiac signs, day and night indication, as well as a celestial panorama, orbital second indication and a Jacob-Cut® diamond Moon have all been added to fully transform the iconic Astronomia. Full of unparalleled watchmaking solutions and adorned with exceptional finishing techniques, the Astronomia Sky is a poetic and singular entity in ultra-high-end watchmaking. WISeKey uses a unique method to secure the authenticity and provenance of watches through cutting-edge authentication microprocessors combined with identity blockchain technology, which together with on-the-ground measures ensures the authenticity of the watch and generates its correspondent digital twin. A WISeKey NFT is a unit of data on the blockchain, where each NFT represents a unique digital item, such as an artwork, audio, video, an item in video games or other forms of creative work. While digital files themselves are infinitely reproducible, NFTs representing them are traced on their underlying blockchains and provide buyers with proof of ownership. Blockchains such as Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Flow, each have their own token standards to define their use of NFTs. WISeKey, the first company in the world to use dual factor authentication combined with blockchain technology to secure luxury watches, currently protects over 2.5 million luxury watches. Since 2010, WISeKey has collaborated with manufactures of luxury watches deploying this unique technology to integrate semiconductors tags powered with its VaultIC154 NFC secure element. WISeKey’s technology creates Watch Birth Certificates, digital identities which are analogous to birth certificates and can be converted into NFTs. The Watch Birth Certificate is signed, or “certified” by a trusted authority and contains basic information such as date & time of manufacture (birth), company (parents), and type of product. This digital identity, used throughout the watch lifetime, allows the watch to become a “Trusted Object” of the Internet, prove its identity and provide verifiable data. The Watch Birth Certificate is based on a cryptographic public‑private key pair that is unique to each IoT device. The public key for this key pair is part of the certificate and can be freely distributed, while the private key is used whenever the IoT device needs to verify its identity or to sign data to ensure cryptographic integrity. It is the private key that represents the essence of the identity of the IoT device. Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey said, “We are delighted to join forces between WISeKey and Jacob & Co. This combination of a powerful NFT technology offering with Jacob & Co watchmaking expertise in conducting Trusted NFTs auctions is a great model on how WISeKey’s unique Digital Identification NFT platform technology delivers the most secure and scalable blockchain backend for creating real digital twins for valuable objects. This unique approach will make it possible to mint provenance and a digital version into an NFT that contains smart contracts on how the digital twin may be used, removing any uncertainty of what an NFT actually means to a collector by delivering authenticated digital twins to the watch luxury market.” Benjamin Arabov, CEO of Jacob & Co said, “For this new NFT Jacob & Co will be using WISeKey’s technology to authenticate the provenance of the physical watch including creating NFTs for each of the layers constituting this unprecedented concept and its entirely mechanical construction. The Astronomia has gone beyond impressive horological achievements and has been regarded as an outstanding multidisciplinary engineering achievement.” “We are very proud to be part of this project. It is a true revolution that takes the best of different industries and that is fully in line with the logic of Alpha Blue Ocean, namely, #BetterFuture. What Jacob & Co and WISeKey have just accomplished is a true technological achievement and it is an honor to be with them on this initiative,” said Pierre Vannineuse, CEO & Founder Alpha Blue Ocean. This technology has received a patent in the USA http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=8&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=wisekey&OS=wisekey&RS=wisekey About WISeKey WISeKey (NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN) is a leading global cybersecurity company currently deploying large scale digital identity ecosystems for people and objects using Blockchain, AI and IoT respecting the Human as the Fulcrum of the Internet.

    WISeKey and CasperLabs Join Forces to Launch TrustedNFT.IO Technologies

    WISeKey and CasperLabs Join Forces to Launch TrustedNFT.IO Technologies Leading Swiss blockchain firms will deliver a secure NFT marketplace on the Casper Network GENEVA – April 14, 2021: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, Blockchain and IoT company, today announced it is joining forces with CasperLabs, the developer of Casper, the most reliable and secure blockchain for businesses, in a strategic partnership to bring trust to the hype around Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) with the launch of TrustedNFT.io. This strategic partnership will provide a dedicated, secure marketplace on the Casper Network for buying and selling NFTs, including artwork and luxury goods. The first major auction will occur in Summer 2021, with more information to come soon. "By combining our Root of Trust with the Casper blockchain, we have created an innovative Trust Protocol that enables a wide range of use cases and business models, simply not possible with current blockchain-based solutions on their own," said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey. "The first application of this collaboration will be the auctioning of digital twins of artwork and luxury collectibles, which we indisputably move into the virtual world, yet make their illegal use impossible.” Casper blockchain is the first fully decentralized, truly scalable blockchain designed for real-world speed and security. Casper’s familiar tools, open architectures and expert support make it simple and readily accessible for developers, and its public software platform makes pricing predictable and transparent for businesses. Unlike first generation blockchains, Casper provides an upgradable infrastructure that powers innovation and facilitates deployments across public, private and hybrid environments. “CasperLabs is committed to ensuring successful outcomes for organizations looking to build innovative applications on the Casper Network,” said Mrinal Manohar, Cofounder and CEO at CasperLabs. “Our partnership with WISeKey will set a new standard for responsible and secure NFT transactions during a period of historic interest. Both teams are deeply committed to delivering a more environmentally friendly and scalable option for the NFT community as it continues to evolve and excite new audiences worldwide.” Casper Network’s Proof-of-Stake (PoS) architecture allows for a higher volume of secure transactions with no drop off in performance, while producing a fraction of the energy expended by traditional blockchain protocols. As interest in NFTs continues to accelerate, both organizations are committed to promoting a more environmentally-friendly consumption and distribution model. With the support of CasperLabs, WISeKey’s unique Digital Identification NFT platform technology will run on the Casper Network to deliver the most secure and scalable blockchain backend for creating real digital twins for valuable objects. This unique approach will make it possible to mint provenance and a digital version into an NFT that contains smart contracts on how the digital twin may be used, removing any uncertainty of what an NFT actually means to a collector by delivering authenticated digital twins to the art and luxury market. About CasperLabs CasperLabs, the developer of the blockchain software behind the Casper Network, provides professional services and support for organizations building on the Casper network. Guided by open source principles, CasperLabs is committed to supporting the next wave of blockchain adoption among businesses and providing developers with a reliable and secure framework to build private, public and hybrid blockchain applications.
