Projects 2021

The ideation phase and the hackathon resulted in 35 project ideas. From these, the 13 projects listed below were selected and supported by Innosuisse idea funding and sponsors. Subsequently, four projects entered the incubation program of CV VC and CV Labs.


The SwiFi project aimed to build a Swiss digital currency. For this, it won the first prize for the best solution based on Algorand at the hackathon. The background of the project was that there is no Swiss bank coin in which investors can participate. SwiFi developed a proof of concept of a new stable coin that could be issued by Julius Baer against deposits.

Solar Coin

SolarCoin anticipates a liberalization of the energy market and creates a trading marketplace for PV power based on NFTs. Thus, renewable energies become more accessible and transparent. The corresponding problem definition was given by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. The project won the second prize at the hackathon for the best Algorand-based solution.

Chained Trust

ChainedTrust won the 1st prize at the hackathon for the best solution built on Near. News publishers and platforms struggle with validating their content. Chained Trust allows publishers to back their content with the support from experts of the field, and help the public react to it with necessary sources. The core of its system enables article publishing, signing, and rewarding fact-checkers by publishing platforms, including social networks and online newspapers.

Bosshard SFL using

The algo-bossard team has developed an Algorand-based solution for the continuous replenishment of Bossard's Smart Bin - a container for B and C parts used in industrial production. For this, the team placed second at the hackathon for the best solution built on Algorand.



Team DREM created a decentralized real estate marketplace based on NFTs, bringing real world assets onto the blockchain. The project includes a KYC solution, a liquidity protocol, and an Algorand authentication mechanism. At the hackathon, DREM shared the first place for the overall best submission with the previously mentioned SolarChain.



Corruption in public procurement is a global phenomenon that has immense financial and reputational consequences. The SmarPP (Smart Public Procurement) project uses blockchain technology and smart contracts to curb fraud related to public procurement. Through automation and transparency in processes, improvements in tendering, habilitation of suppliers and verification of deliveries are achieved.


Boosting Local Farming

The promotion of fair prices for farmers has become increasingly important at the local, national, and global levels. The ‘boosting local farming’ project, initiated by the Geneva Macro Labs in 2021, aims to set up and operate a one-stop shop, accessible through a website and mobile app that connects consumers with local farmers. Blockchain technology could guarantee transparency and traceability of products.



CO2DAO is a decentralized carbon credit marketplace, for people who want to see that their efforts make a difference, for projects that want to focus on climate action - non-bureaucratic fundraising, and for companies that want a trusted offsetting solution to be climate neutral. In a world that is becoming more environmentally conscious and regulators following suit, CO2DAO is in the perfect position to embrace the positive change that is taking place.


La Terra

La Terra analyzed and defined the implementation of an integration of NFTs in perfume bottles. The project team was supported by SUPSI University to refine its business plan and define a community management on the basis of a future platform based on NFTs and social skills between users. It also created a reward system based on a La Terra token that would allow offering discounts, new services or additional services to active users. The strategy could seek an Innosuisse Innovation cheque for the mobile app needed to manage the social community.



ELYSIUM, with the support of SUPSI University, began an in-depth study of the various tokenomics associated with the idea, while defining and completing the vision, mission and business plan of the future project. Possible solutions for a decentralized key management system were explored, as well as possible "wallet connection" features (similar to what traditional banks offer with PSD2 standards). The goal would be to receive an Innosuisse Innovation cheque in 2023 for a "superwallet" definition that would allow to increase the usability and adoption of cryptocurrencies, especially in the context of NFT and social capabilities.



QMS started investigating various technical aspects related to data protection and interoperability of the blockchain. Currently, there is a project proposal for the digitalization of paper flows in international material trade based on decentralization and smart contracts. QMS visited SUPSI University for several sessions in which they were assisted in these detailed studies. The company began implementing a preliminary, internal solution that requires additional research and development to be consolidated. An Innosuisse project could be an interesting option in a market niche where these solutions are still missing.
