    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. Its team possesses deep enterprise technology experience, hailing from organizations including Google, Adobe, AWS, Dropbox and Microsoft. To learn more, visit casperlabs.io.

    WISeKey Increases its Semiconductor Manufacturing Capabilities to Support Exploding Demand

    WISeKey Increases its Semiconductor Manufacturing Capabilities to Support Exploding Demand WISeKey’s VaultIC Secure Elements and secure microcontrollers protect large volumes of IoT devices and consumer products. The current global pandemic situation has resulted in an exploding demand for these products that WISeKey is responding to by significantly investing in its supply chain transformation. Geneva, Switzerland – April 12, 2021: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company today announced it is significantly investing in its supply chain transformation to better and faster serve its customers. The Company is simultaneously impacted by the current semiconductor shortage situation and a tremendously growing order backlog. While most industries are dramatically impacted by the current semiconductor shortage, market analysts predict the same situation will continue into 2022. According to experts, this shortage is the combination of several factors. The global consumer demand dropped during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and the semiconductor industry had to significantly reduce its manufacturing capacity to mitigate consequences on profitability; however, the worldwide lockdown had an unforecastable positive effect on the high-tech products market: tons of new laptops, monitors, smartphones, routers, modems and gaming consoles have created a surge in chips across industries that low inventory and limited production capacities haven’t been able to resorb. Billions of WISeKey’s secure chips are embedded in high-tech products and goods to protect data, communication and firmware against cyberattacks. This includes routers, modems, energy smart meters, drones and medical devices, to mention a few. As a fabless company, WISeKey trust a network of subcontractors and partners to provide its most prestigious customers with the best leadtimes and service. While the Company’s book-to-bill ratio is exploding, it has to challenge its existing supply chain and find short and long term solutions to maintain and even continue to raise the bar on service quality. These solutions involve continuous negotiations with current suppliers and investments to diversify sourcing, including relocating some of the processes to minimize transportation and environmental effects. “WISeKey has been selected by global companies as their digital trust partner,” said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey. “Our VaultIC and other secure chips are massively used in many sensitive applications that require not only a unique technology expertise but also a perfect supply chain. We are again demonstrating reactivity and agility to provide our customers with the best business continuity in spite of the current chaotic semiconductor crisis.” To learn more about WISeKey’s cybersecurity propositions, visit WISeKey.com.

    With WISeKey’s Cryptographically NFT Authentication Technology, You Do Not Need to Destroy the Original Art Object to Create a TrustedNFT.IO

    With WISeKey’s Cryptographically NFT Authentication Technology, You Do Not Need to Destroy the Original Art Object to Create a TrustedNFT.IO While NFTs can be sold on any platform, the actual cryptographic key that attaches the owner to their new NFT is stored on a WISeKey certificate in perpetuity across a distributed network of computers so that they cannot be deleted, copied or destroyed in the future. Geneva/Brussels – April 9, 2021 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey “) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, Blockchain and IoT company, announced today the launch of TrustedNFT.IO a platform allowing Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to verify the existence and the ownership of a digital collectible using a combination of Digital certification and blockchain technology. This authentication technology by has been around since 2010 and comes as an offshoot of the boom in cryptocurrencies, which also run on the blockchain. Last week WISeKey launched a world premiere luxury watch NFT auction. To date, the NFT auction has already received a bid of 25 ethers (~$50,000) for the digital twin of Jean-Claude Biver's Bigger Bang All Black Tourbillon Chrono ‘Special piece’ watch. https://opensea.io/assets/0x495f947276749ce646f68ac8c248420045cb7b5e/46278206053616762088099727979929024745946993553888345078461487400588605915137 This watch NFT auction was the first luxury watch to have a digital life with certified ownership and authenticity. This digital twin will be the "authentic" double of the physical watch in the digital space and has attracted international attention due to the unique combination of Trust and NFT as the current momentum on NFT as hit new highs. Of note, in March Christie’s, auctioned off a digital collage by an artist who goes by the name of Beeple for nearly $70 million, immediately making the artist the third-most expensive living artist in history. The auction conducted by WISeKey of a prestigious watch has many wondering why any collector would want to buy just the digital version of the watch and not the original and how the person acquiring the NFT can claim ownership of something that can be easily and endlessly duplicated? Some people struggle with this idea because they want to know, what is it they actually own. But people of a younger generation do not struggle with it. It is a very old-world idea, wanting to hold something in your hand, as if the intangible or the immaterial doesn’t have value. An NFT auction works much like an online auction on platforms like eBay. Each work is displayed online as a digital file that contains metadata – which literally means “data about data” – about the work’s title, number and who owns it.
