DNA partnered with Steve Olson, pioneering skateboarder turned artist and the Medium Exchange Gallery. All 14 pieces in the BEAUTIFUL EXPLOSION collection came with a DNA digital Certificate of Authenticity stored on the Kadena blockchain. Steve Olson chose DNA to protect his art from counterfeiting but also to archive his collection and track his work and collectors. His artwork often trades at a multiple in the secondary market where previously he had no visibility or access to these new buyers.
DNA’s technology was given the ultimate seal of approval when Sotheby’s announced the sale of a highly valuable Paraiba Tourmaline ring from Austrian jeweler Schullin verified with a DNA Native Ass. This is the first time any auctioneer has sold a piece of jewellery guaranteed in this way. The handmade platinum ring features a 49,88ct natural oval-cut Paraiba Tourmaline and 60 baguette-cut diamonds sold for 30% above estimates at CHF239,400. "We're very impressed by what DNA has created - it made sense to use the technology for the upcoming Sotheby’s sale, which features a unique piece. We’ve explored a number of digital verification solutions in the past but none work as effectively and seamlessly as this one. For us, simplicity and ease of use is what sets it apart, and it the perfect solution for all of our customers including those who may not be particularly tech savvy." -Lukas Schullin, Managing Director at Schullin
DNA joined a consortium led by Arqit (NASDAQ listed Quantum cloud computing company) and Imperial College London, under the guidance of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the UK & Singaporean governments to showcase that ETD (Electronic Trade Documents) can replace paper-based documents on a single live transaction, specifically with regards to their transferability, verifiability and secure nature. The consortium showcased our combined technologies via the shipment of a pallet of plastic pipes (via container) from the UK to Singapore. Arqit used their Quantum protocols to cryptographically mint & secure the EbL. DNA acted as an Additional layer of cyber hygiene alongside Imperial College’s IoT’s devices (sensors) which were affixed to the pallet. DNA tokenised the shipment onto a DNA smart NFT, storing vital information from the shipment (including the EBL number) immutably onto the Kadena blockchain. DNA also added access to the Imperial college IOT sensors which provide real time and historic parameters on external conditions the pallet is subjected to. This data is stored as meta data onto the blockchain so that the recipient can verify that the goods have not been compromised during the shipment. Upon arrival, the recipient scanned a QR code affixed to the pallet, giving them access to all the data, including proof of provenance, ensuring that the shipper knows the goods have been received.
