Updated: Oct 19, 2022

BELLEVUE, WASH., and ZUG, SWITZERLAND, OCTOBER 18, 2022 – Alitheon, an optical AI technology company, signed a letter of intent with aXedras to link and integrate its FeaturePrint® technology into aXedras’ blockchain-backed Bullion Integrity Ledger™. The aXedras solution is the underlying data platform ensuring data and product integrity in the bullion market along the value chain of precious metals. The aXedras solution refers and connects to security feature technologies used by refiners to enable vaults and investors to verify the authenticity of their precious metals under custody. Connecting FeaturePrint® to the aXedras solution is a logical step to provide seamless authenticity verification processes for bars along the chain of custody: creating an additional layer of trust

“It’s imperative that businesses filter out illegally sourced gold and be able to trust provenance,” said Roei Ganzarski, CEO of Alitheon. “Combining next-generation technology like Alitheon’s FeaturePrint and aXedras’ Bullion Integrity Ledger™ is setting a new standard for automated verification of gold bars along the value chain

“Connecting security feature providers like Alitheon to our Bullion Integrity Ledger™ provides a one-stop solution to market players along the value chain for product integrity including streamlined authenticity verification”, said Urs Röösli, CEO of aXedras.

Counterfeit and illegal bullion is a problem that continues to grow, with misled and uninformed dealers requesting greater track, trace, and authentication tools. Alitheon provides its patented FeaturePrint® technology, which creates for items what fingerprints are for people to bullion refiners as security feature for their bars.
