Is your 10K-100K pre-owned Swiss watch an authentic, real deal? Origyn are building up a database to make sure collectors and retailers know which are the real vs fake watches. Here’s the press info;
Since the beginning, ORIGYN Luxury set its sights on growing one of the largest collections of watch data worldwide. Last week, we took another step forward on this journey by acquiring the sole rights to over 60,000 watch images from Baselworld and Watches and Wonders (previously referred to as Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie/SIHH). We thank our partners WORLDTEMPUS and JSH for their contributions.
The images date back to 1963 and will further refine the ensemble of intelligent technologies we use to identify, authenticate and prove ownership for luxury timepieces. To keep track of all that’s happening for the ultimate solution against luxury counterfeits, visit us at https://www.origyn.ch/luxury/.
BLOCKCHAIN ID IS COMING
Watch collectors may well be buying watches using crypto currencies soon. Well, let’s be clear, goverments are rapidly phasing out cash, so digital code may well be the new money from 2030 onwards. More here;
In other important ORIGYN news, DFINITY (apologies for the silly capital letters – Ed) launched its groundbreaking public network earlier this month. This brings years of behind-the-scenes work from our ORIGYN engineers to the main stage.
The DFINITY Genesis launch event also marked one of the most influential blockchain and crypto events in history, as the ICP token debuted with a market cap of over $40 billion (U.S.). ICP is one of the most valuable cryptocurrencies in circulation today, and ORIGYN is the first pan-industry platform to build on DFINITY’s Internet Computer.
What does this mean for ORIGYN? After years of R&D, DFINITY is live. It’s happening. It’s changing everything the world has come to expect from blockchain technology, and ORIGYN is built to leverage all of its unprecedented capabilities from day one.
This also means we’ve been growing fast. To learn more about our new verticals, ORIGYN Art and ORIGYN Digital Media, take a look at www.origyn.ch, and keep watching @ORIGYNTech on Twitter for some big updates in the coming weeks.
