NFT & blockchain
We have patented and industrially developed a solution that combines the power of the blockchain with our innovative radio frequency smart dust to guarantee the uniqueness of any physical product or artwork, indissolubly binding it to its counterpart in the metaverse through an innovative non-fungible token.
Anti-counterfeiting: making a physical product or an artwork unique and inimitable in such a way that it cannot be counterfeited.
Tokenization of physical products: creating a unique and secure link between the physical product or artwork and its virtual counterpart.
Physicalization of NFT: creating a unique and secure link between the NFT and its original physical realizations.
Linking non-fungible tokens to physical assets is one of the strongest cases for the use of NFTs and blockchain technology.
We introduce the concept of Natively Digital Physical Asset, which uses our patented technology of authentification through a radio frequency smart dust randomly dispersed inside the product.
Unique Digital Fingerprint
Thousands of RFID smart dust grains that generate with their own unique internal characteristics and their random distribution a unique and unrepeatable radiofrequency fingerprint of the artwork.
Just as every cell in our body contains our DNA, so every grain of smart dust contains the encrypted digital fingerprint of the artwork, which cannot be separated from it and its author identity, immutable over time, counterfeit-proof, easy to be linked to the NFT counterpart of the physical artwork.
A technical insight
Many are interested in non-fungible tokens, but a relatively small number of experts are aware of how they actually work. An NFT is basically a contract that assigns exclusive ownership of a unique digital asset to someone. But by its nature, a digital asset is replicable and each replica is perfectly identical to the original. Blockchain technology solves this problem by carving the NFT property contract "into the rock". However, blockchain cannot contain the assets directly. In the heart of the NFT, only the "hash" of the digital asset is written, i.e. a minimum length code that uniquely represents the asset. One of its fundamental properties is that a slight change in the binary code of the digital asset causes a radical change in its hash. This means that if the asset is digital (i.e. it is defined in every detail with a binary code that does not change over time, like a bitmap image) then the hash will always be the same and can be used to prove the ownership of the asset as written in blockchain.
If the asset is physical, it must be digitized, in order to calculate its hash. However, very often a physical asset, such as an artwork, deteriorates over time and the more accurate the digitization process is, the more evident will be the differences between two scans carried out at different times, with different lights, different sensors, etc. This means that the hash code generated in a subsequent scan will be different from the initial one written in the NFT. This effectively nullifies the property contract.
It seems evident that any digital model of a physical asset derived from its physical characteristics is inherently unsuitable for generating a unique bond with the NFT through the hashing process.
The only possible solution is to insert something digital in the physical asset that is not separable from it, that does not change over time, easy to read and almost impossible to reproduce.
A smart dust.
By inserting the Native Digital smart dust in the artwork, it takes on a digital connotation. Therefore the hash code to be used within the NFT can be calculated from this "electromagnetic image" generated by the random distribution of the smart dust, regardless of the other physical characteristics of the asset (e.g. colors, three-dimensionality, shape).
Download our App and enter the world of cryptos in a few seconds. If you don't have a wallet, the App will guide you to create one in a few simple steps. Take a picture of your physical artworks and the App will do all the heavy lifting for you to convert them to NFTs in your wallet. No specific technical knowledge is required!
A Native Digital Label incorporates our invisible smart dust and is already authenticated and connected to an NFT, that you can transfer to your wallet when you scan the QR code on the label with our App.
The authenticity of your artwork is guaranteed by the digital DNA of the label, which cannot be separated from the artwork, unalterable over time and impossible to replicate.
Applicable on any non-metallic surface (e.g. canvas, photographic paper, wood, plastic, stone, glass)
The Native Digital smart dust can be mixed with your colors or can be applied as substrate in your artwork. This solution will give you maximum freedom to do what you have in mind with the maximum security guaranteed by our solution.
Your artwork will be autenticated by an authorized Native Digital center. During that process the NFT collection related to your artwork will be minted.
Subscribing this plan, an Art Gallery receives the license to use and all the necessary software and hardware to read and authenticate the Native Digital DNA of an artwork.
This subscription for industrial-level users implies the possibility of incorporating our solution into high-end products whose authenticity is to be guaranteed. Our technical team dedicated to industrial automation will provide all the necessary solutions for rapid integration into the production line.
Make it easy
So far, NFTs have been accessible to a relatively small number of people, able to create a wallet with cryptocurrencies, manage the related security issues, choose the right NFT marketplace, digitize their artworks, mint and promote them in the right way.
With the Native Digital App this process is straight forward for anybody.
