WISekey will give an update on its new version WISe.ART 2.1 NFT Marketplace that it is fully operational and includes new features providing art collectors and artists with a secure marketplace and platform where buyers and sellers NFTs can easily connect their crypto wallets to buy or list their NFTs for sale. The new design of the WISe.Art 2.1 platform ensures that in addition to an authenticated and signed version of the actual digital asset, an irreversible link to a physical object is in place, in addition to proof of ownership, provenance and a set of contracts outlining the future flow of usage and monetization, if applicable.
NFT tokenization utilizes the WISeKey registered patent application, “System and Method for Providing Persistent Authenticable NFT” in the United States. With this method, NFTs have increased in value and will retain their value in the long run.
The NFTs and the platform are secured by WISeKey’s own security technology allowing the protection of physical objects as well as digital assets in an end-to-end secure process. Both smart contracts and physical contracts can be included in NFTs to describe the use rights of the NFT buyer, including the 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 means for greater appreciation of their work.
