Responding to the needs of buyers and sellers of high-value
goods, the WISe.Art platform is developing into a
fully-fledged marketplace with its own digital currency, the
ability to include curators and multipliers, white-labeling options
and custom-made NFT design.
The NFT design of the WISe.Art platform ensures that
besides an authenticated and signed version of the actual digital
asset, an irreversible link to a physical object is set up, in
addition to proof of ownership, provenance and a set of contracts
describing future use and monetization streams, if relevant.
The NFT tokenization uses the WISeKey registered patent
application, “System and Method for Providing Persistent
Authenticatable NFT” in the USA. With this method, NFTs have
increased in value and will hold its long-term value.
NFTs and the platform are secured by WISeKey’s own security
technology enabling the protection of physical objects as well as
digital assets in a safe end-to-end process.
