WISeKey Announcement this House ofe Alba FoundationLighting 21, Pedro Sandoval, MS Porrima Blue Odyssey, Upeace, UNOART & WIS Foundatione.ART Collaborate at DAVOS 2022 to support global efforts to implement the SDGs
Geneva – May 25, 2022 – WISeKey International Holding (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN, WKEY), a leading security certificate authority and identity solutions provider, today announced that its entire WISe.ART team will be hosted by CasperLabs to present the secure NFT marketplace WISe.ART at Avenue 69 in Davos from May 23 to 25, 2022.
WISE.ART is much more than a secure and approved NFT marketplace. It cares about society and the planet and supports many environmentally friendly projects, projects that place people at the heart of the action with a view to raising awareness and raising funds.
WISE.ART aims to embrace and support artists who integrate their work or collectibles on the platform. Quality and safety are key elements of its business model. Collectors should also feel comfortable with their investments and know that most of the time they are helping the world while enjoying the fun of collecting.
It is in this spirit that the acclaimed artist, Pedro Sandoval together with Lighting21 worked with the famous Alba House Foundation collections to create a very creative and technically stunning NFT on Christopher Columbus to illustrate the original correspondence between the explorer and his queen, Isabella. This NFT will be the first to be offered on loan instead of being sold. It’s a new way to invest in art, especially for museums and private foundations who want to share this incredible collaboration with zero or very little carbon footprint. Imagine hundreds of thousands of people watching this video from anywhere in the world. It is a museum piece and WISe.ART will manage its future.
On May 25, 2022, WISE.ART will host some of the NGO representatives it supports on the main stage to discuss NFTs and the Metaverse in front of a live, online audience (https://www.wisekey.com/davos-event/).
On this occasion, WISE.ART will auction a one-of-a-kind exclusive collection of NFTs, offering collectors the opportunity to become part of this intelligent and caring community.
For the first time, the WISe.ART team will welcome its visitors to a specially designed digital gallery inside its own private Metaverse. WISE.ART worked with VR4Business to develop an environment that meets user needs.
To stay up-to-the-minute on everything that’s going on, WISE.ART ask everyone to join the WhatsApp group “WISeKey Davos Friends” available via the following link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/IfArLvVdeyVLNqJBXdTr7j

About Foundation AN ART: Art can be our best companion; it brings to the surface the deepest part of our worries, challenges and aspirations for humanity. The Onuart Foundation brings contemporary art into the ordinary life of the UN to mark the commitment to positive greatness in the world’s largest political organization in scope.
Human rights are the backbone of the new globalized society. Gradually we are overcoming the successive phases of fragmented political organization, to move towards a planetary space centered on the valorization of each one. It is the march towards the world of “One Humanity”, and the pillar on which to establish coexistence is constituted by Human Rights. To fight today for Human Rights is to fight to enable a world without borders or divisions, by shifting the center of gravity towards unlocking everyone’s talent.
The Onuart Foundation and the United Nations in Geneva, associated with the famous tenor Jonas Kaufmann, ambassador to the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, played in the One Humanity concert, accompanied by the pianist Helmut Deutsch. Her performance transcended this hall which lit and broadcast her around the world, reaching millions of people on five continents.
Humanity is, in essence, intelligent energy, with creativity being perhaps our greatest strength. For this reason, when we commemorate World Human Rights Day, there is nothing better than to do so under the union of art and music, the maximum expression of intelligence and creativity.
