Along with its energy resources, the economic, cultural and ethnic ties of the Caspian Region extend well into Eastern Europe and Asia, making it a real regional hub. WISeKey, in collaboration with Integral Petroleum will create a gold-backed Caspian Coin, which will be rapidly followed by a Compliance Token and settlement for computing power provided on demand as a commodity.

Our common goal is to create growth opportunities for start-up companies in the Caspian Region using algorithmically balanced ecosystems of trading and investment platforms," said Carlos Moreno, VP Corporate Alliances and Partnership of WISeKey.
