In 2021 and 2022, non-fungible tokens or NFTs have taken the world by storm. Generative art also became the preferred tool of many digital artists like Pedro Sandoval. The artist types his vision into the computer which recognises the key words using its artificial intelligence and soon the machine picks up on the artist’s preferences and instructions and replicates the art using automation. NFTs can be created by automation as one sale is processed, another artwork is uploaded.
WISeKey’s new WISe.ART 3.0 NFT Marketplace version is fully operational and includes new features providing art collectors and artists a secure marketplace and platform where NFT buyers and sellers can easily connect their multiple crypto wallets to instantly purchase or list their NFTs for sale.
The new design of the WISe.Art 3 platform ensures that besides an authenticated and signed version of the actual digital asset, an irreversible link to a physical object can be 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 their 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.
Smart contracts and physical contracts can be included in the NFTs to describe the usage rights of the NFT buyer, including monetization of their collection. It also allows the original creator to potentially participate in future royalties. This option creates new funding opportunities for artists with large collections, as well as sophisticated ways for a better appreciation of their work.
WISeID’s trusted identity service enables access to the web and mobile applications with strong authentication techniques and supports online KYC onboarding, OTP and digital certificate login, and an innovative “hands-free” secure login based on QR-Codes which users can read using WISeID suite of mobile applications without even having to type any passwords.
Additional security services include digital signature services for documents. WISeID implements standards such as OpenID Connect and OAUTH2, that can be easily integrated by customers to enhance the security of their cloud applications. WISeID can also be combined with Microsoft Active Directory, facilitating integration with corporate applications.
