About us

We make the world a more connected, transparent and authentic place by enabling instantaneous verifiable trust across entire value chains.

We are a Swiss company founded in 2018 to support brands in fighting against counterfeiting and diversion through an advanced Authenticity and Traceability as a Service platform.

Today, by combining the power of blockchain with multiple proprietary IoT devices, we protect the authenticity, prevent the diversion and provide real time traceability for both physical and digital products and assets such as NFTs.
