Share

Alpha Blue Ocean, the family office founded by Pierre Vannineuse and financial partner of WISeKey (Tickers: SW: WIHN and US: WKEY), announces the new technological breakthrough of the Swiss group led by Carlos Creus Moreira. On January 13, 2022, WISeKey launched the audacious project to generate the first NFT from space...

On January 13, 2021, WISeKey launched its first WISeSat pico satellite via SpaceX's (*) Falcon 9 rocket as part of the Transporter 3 mission to generate the first NFT from space.

The NFT will be captured by the WISeSat satellite station in La Linea in south of Spain and minted on WISe.ART NFT Marketplace.

Pierre Vannineuse founder and CIO of Alpha Blue Ocean said “Alpha Blue Ocean would like to praise this technological hardware and software achievement by WISeKey's teams. It will allow the NFT ecosystem to evolve towards a truly global constellation by generating the first NFT from space! We are over the moon to have participated in the financing of WISeKey in order to achieve this goal and to see that it has garnered the support of industry giants such as SpaceX (*) which aims to facilitate humanity's conquest of space!"

This operation is the result of recent strategic investments, in particular a stake in FOSSA Systems, the group headed by Julian Fernandez. The WISeSat satellite is a security-hardened FOSSASAT-2E satellite designed to further drive down satellite costs for the already-small CubeSat size.

Amine Nedjai, CEO of Alpha Blue Ocean and all the team would like to congratulate Team WISeKey for this latest achievement which has already entered the annals of history.

Created in 2017, Alpha Blue Ocean is a pioneer and leading stakeholder in alternative finance in Europe, particularly in the life science and technology sector. Over a four-year period, the group founded by Pierre Vannineuse has committed to over €1.5 bn in financial engagements, with the majority invested in cutting-edge industrial technology projects.

(TSLA: US), The Boring Company, X.com - now part of PayPal Holdings Inc. (PYPL: US) -, Neuralink, OpenAI & Zip2 but also known as a key opinion leader within the world of cryptocurrencies and NFTs."

Methane Electrolysis Can Decarbonize LNG/LPG Imports and Achieve EU’s Climate Targets18.8.2022 14:00:00 CEST | Press release

To become independent of Russian natural gas imports by 2027, the European Union is increasing near-term imports of US or Azerbaijan liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The main element of LNG, methane, is the second leading greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Environmental organizations warn that long-term supply contracts for the fossil LNG will undermine the European Green Deal. The German company Graforce has developed a methane electrolysis technology (plasmalysis) that uses LNG or LPG to produce hydrogen and solid carbon for dioxide-free energy generation. Compared to water electrolysis, plasmalysis requires only one fifth the energy to produce the same amount of hydrogen. This press release features multimedia.
