Cybersecurity firm WISeKey (SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN) and Swiss blockchain startup Lykke revealed today during the Davos Internet of Value Blockchain RoundTable a joint agreement to integrate and co-offer their flagship products: the Lykke Wallet and the WISeKey suite of software, APIs, and servers.
According to the agreement, Lykke will integrate the WISeKey identity and security stack into its digital bitcoin wallets and software, while WISeKey, in addition to its WISWatch and other security devices, will offer a ‘WISeKey wallet by Lykke’ to its customers.
“The combination of these two technologies is very powerful,” says Richard Olsen, CEO of Lykke. “It will give our customers, both individuals and our large enterprise customers, private key protection and management as a built-in part of the Lykke platform. This is very much part of the Lykke vision, and WISeKey is a perfect partner for us.”
Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey, added: “We’re very happy to integrate the Lykke trading ecosystem into our suite of products. This is going to make it easier to buy what you want, use and pay for services as you need them, and transfer money securely without passwords and other insecure forms of identification.”
