Title        The Leading Trusted Non-Fungible Token Event 
Speakers     -- Carlos Creus Moreira, CEO and Founder of WISeKey 
              -- Trent McConaghy, Founder of Ocean Protocol 
              -- Ashok Ranadive, Director of Professional Services 
              at CasperLabs 
              -- Chris Boos, CTO of WISeKey (Founder of Arago) 
              -- Sebastien Fanti, CEO and Founder of Lexing 
              -- Julian Fernandez, CEO and Founder of Fossa Sytems 
   During the webinar WISekey will introduce the TrustNFT.IO platform a 
suite of cutting-edge technologies which in association with Open 
Protocol and CasperLabs will combine the WISeID with NFT transactions to 
ensure users' privacy, security and safety whilst providing access to 
NFT trading. 
   WISeKey has joined forces with CasperLabs, the developer of Casper, the 
most reliable and secure blockchain for businesses, to bring trust to 
the hype around 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. 
   WISeKey and Ocean are working together to launch WISeART, a 
decentralized marketplace for physical paintings, sculptures, and more. 
The marketplace will include NFTs to represent the physical work, 
combined with fungible tokens for more fluid price discovery, and enable 
staking on physical artworks. 
   The marketplace combines the strengths of WISeKey and Ocean. WISeKey has 
developed specialized chips to link physical items with NFTs, and 
world-class blockchain identity technology. Ocean has developed powerful 
decentralized marketplace technology, battle-hardened in the domain of 
data. Combined with WISeKey's NFTs, this marketplace technology readily 
ports to the domain of physical art and offers other benefits given the 
Ocean team's pioneering experience in blockchain art platforms. 
   Purchasing an exclusive piece of art is always a matter of great joy, 
but this purchase comes with the concern that the work may be stolen, 
the art itself may not be an original, or its provenance might not be 
verifiable. While most high-end art collectors find it difficult to stop 
such acts, WISeKey's WISeART technology takes steps to protect exclusive 
pieces of artwork. It combines cutting-edge authentication 
microprocessors with identity blockchain technology, which together with 
on-the-ground measures can ensure the authenticity of the artwork (see 
https://youtu.be/oNvhMvdchGk). Moreover, if the art is stolen, it can be 
traced, making it difficult to be traded on the secondary market. This 
control is possible to practice because each artwork's identity is 
stored on an immutable ledger (blockchain) in the implemented system.
