WISeKey is a company that focuses on digital information security, identity management, and authentication based in Geneva, and it recently introduced the 'WISePhone.' The WISePhone is the inaugural secure blockchain mobile phone that is completely safe to use due to OFCOM, the company's telecommunication service provider. OFCOM, also known as the Swiss Federal Office of Communications, enables a voice-encryption protection. The new mobile phone boasts hardware and software developed completely by WISeKey.

Notably, this is the first smartphone that is fueled by the label's cryptocurrency Blockchain system, WISeCoin. WISePhone's wallet is protected by a hardware security module and SuisseID digital identity that is certified by the Swiss Government and the European General Data Protection Regulation. Additionally, it also offers a contactless payment method due to the firm's 'Blockchain-as-a-Service' technology.
