Today, on March 2 in Geneva a leading Swiss cybersecurity and IoT solutions company WiSeKey has announced a strategic collaboration with a California-based blockchain airspace platform developer VIMANA Global. WiSeKey has a unique blockchain framework that offers all-in-box security measures with an API that is easy to implement and effectively manages the life-cycles of devices and their respective digital certificates.

The sector of Autonomous Aerial Vehicles is growing fast, and traditional air traffic control towers are not designed to handle thousands of flights within the urban area. The resources of WiSeKey with efficient control, secure environment, optimized information processing will potentially solve the scalability and security issues of VIMANA. Blockchain technology and its peer-to-peer nature allows it to operate with big data volumes.

Security and positive identification are the key elements in peer-to-peer exchanges that power the VIMANA Blockchain Airspace platform. The combined ecosystems give us the opportunity to potentially support exciting new features in the future.

With every node (AAV) in the network connected and communicating with each other constantly, the clients will be able to just enter their destination and relax.

By combining WISeKey's Secure Element (our tamper-resistant silicon chip) and its managed Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) systems with the VIMANA Blockchain Airspace platform, we are bringing a powerful solution that increases the level of safety for IoT transportation systems, while ensuring maximum security and trust on the system.

Founder & CEO, WISeKey

The first pilot cities to host the project are Dubai, Abu-Dhabi, Tokyo, Singapore, and Mumbai. VIMANA will test its aerial commuter vehicles with vertical take-off and landing.

Craig Wright to Claim to be Satoshi Again

He explained that the false information surrounding Bitcoin and blockchain-derived systems made him come out of the shadows

A senior researcher at nChain, Craig Wright, sent the Commission on the US Exchange Commodity Trading (CFTC) introductory information on cryptocurrency mechanics in response to a request from the Office. But even in the official document he did not miss the opportunity to remind everyone that it was he who allegedly was the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet. Ethereum is a poorly designed copy of bitcoin designed with the purpose of completing the promise of smart contracts and scripting that were delivered within bitcoin but which were hobbled by the core developers of bitcoin who sought to enable anonymous transactions to exist within the system. 

Craig Wright


Earlier in February, the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” announced that he possesses a patent, allegedly capable of restricting the right to issue JPM Coin.

In October 2017, Craig Wright made a mistake confirming that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
