ORIGYN Foundation

ORIGYN is a Swiss nonprofit dedicated to identifying, authenticating and unlocking the powers of ownership for objects of value.

ORIGYN uses artificial intelligence (AI) on decentralized computing to identify, authenticate and unlock the powers of ownership for objects of value.

ORIGYN was founded in Oct 2020, by Gian Bochsler, Vincent Perriard and Mike Schwartz. The company is headquartered in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.


ORIGYN uses non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as digital certificates to identify and authenticate luxury physical and digital goods. The foundation utilizes both blockchain and artificial intelligence to develop its NFT-based authentication system.


ORIGYN, as the first digital certification platform built on the Internet Computer (IC), the foundation and its verticals generate new forms of value for some of the largest consumer asset classes in the world, including art, collectibles, digital media and luxury goods.


The ORIGYN authentication platform far surpasses other NFT certification solutions in the market today due to the unique biometric and ownership data included in ORIGYN digital twins, as well as the global guarantee that backs every digital certificate.


ORIGYN has raised $20M in a new strategic investment on Nov 23, 2021. Bakcers for the roud includes Bill Ackman’s Table Management, Polychain Capital, Paris Hilton, Coinko, Vectr Ventures, Carter Reum, Div Turakhia, GD10 Ventures and more. This new round valued ORIGYN at $300M post-money.
