ORO VALLEY, Ariz., March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Tautachrome Inc. (OTC PINK: TTCM), the developer of the KlickZie imaging patents and technology released today its patent attorney’s opinion on the early applicability of its KlickZie patents in the new wildfire market of NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens).
Non fungible tokens (“NFTs”), are tradeable blockchain tokens each of which represents a unique digital asset. NFTs are the new rage in the marketing of digital imagery. One such NFT, representing a digital collage of images created by artist Mike Winklemen, just sold under auction by Christies of London earlier this month for over 69 million dollars. But to Tautachrome, blockchain NFTs are nothing new. Our patents teach capturing the uniqueness of digital imagery and certifying its authenticity with an Authentication Centric Entity, an ACE. When the ACE is a blockchain, the certificate of authenticity is a token on the blockchain, namely an NFT. The Tautachrome ACE is the first fully described imagery certification system that reflects all the attributes of an NFT on a blockchain.
In an opinion provided to the Company last week, Benjamin Urcia, the Company’s patent attorney since 2012, stated as follows regarding the Company’s three imagery authentication and validation patents: “The three authentication/validation patents each covers the concept of capturing and storing images in a way that enables subsequent verification of their authenticity and uniqueness. Although the term “non fungible token” was not coined at the time the authentication/validation patents were filed, the patents cover method steps that are essential to the creation of any authenticable token that is used to verify a unique captured image, including tokens that are stored in a blockchain, that is, NFTs.”
Commenting on NFTs, Dr. Jon N Leonard, Tautachrome CEO stated today: “An NFT, being an asset that represents a real digital entity, is a trustable trading asset only to the extent that the entity it represents is secure and its unique identity is reliably authenticable. Unfortunately, in today’s hot NFT market, NFTs have been sold claiming to represent unique art, without any means for proving the authenticity of the claim. That is a sure way to destabilize the NFT market, and it is the reason that security and authenticity are built into the Company’s processes so as to automatically guarantee these crucial NFT features.”
SWIRE) Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM), the developer of the ARknet platform, today announced the creation of a partnership with Kompendium LLC for the integration of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) and NFT-related services into the ARknet platform. Kompendium is a specialized software development company providing Blockchain-related business solutions in identity, data assurance, tokenization, and service integration.
Kompendium Director Jason K. Gregoire commented, “ARknet’s innovative augmented-reality platform is uniquely suited to leverage many of blockchain technology’s most empowering and beneficial features. Integrating such services using leading-edge technologies like the Factom Protocol will significantly expand the ways in which ARknet can deliver value to its individual users, and numerous platform organizations and businesses.”
Kompendium, in collaboration with research & software development firm Kelecorix Inc., is developing numerous blockchain-enabled features that will provide the ARknet community the ability to tokenize user- and business-generated content within the ARknet platform. Integration of NFTs into ARknet builds upon Tautachrome's imaging patents and technology and it provides a unique opportunity to combine patented capabilities with open NFT standards for expanded user services and business applications.
Kompendium lead engineer and Kelecorix CTO Sergey Bushnyak stated, “We are excited to work with such an energized and forward-looking team eager to bring new services and features to the ARknet platform and its users.”
ARknet’s token services will utilize the Factom Protocol and Ethereum blockchains. The Factom Protocol will provide ARknet with a highly efficient and data-agnostic decentralized data layer capable of handling its diverse technological and business logic needs. Similarly, ARknet will be capable of leveraging popular Ethereum-based features through the use of a smart contract-based bridge that connects the Ethereum and Factom Protocol networks.
Dr. Jon N. Leonard, Tautachrome’s CEO said today, “This is a great step forward, and it’s only a preview of what’s to come. Our ARknet platform is connecting the world’s consumers directly to the world’s goods and services providers with the frictionless and fraud-free features of blockchain technology. Factom (the blockchain system of the vibrant and decentralized open-source community at https://www.factomprotocol.org/) is a blockchain system that will give us the high transaction speeds and the predictably low transaction costs that we require in the ARknet platform. And the Kompendium-provided two-way bridge to Ethereum, the world’s most widely used blockchain, will let our users get the best of Ethereum without incurring Ethereum’s inherent transaction costs and time delays. In the coming weeks, we will speak more about ARknet’s built-in crypto-wallet tying our ARknet to the rest of the world via Ethereum.”
