Fobi AI Inc. (FOBI:TSXV) (FOBIF:OTCQB) has revealed its new partnership with Verifiction, innovators in data verification and cybersecurity. This collaboration aims to transform the way digital assets are verified and protected, enhancing the security framework for digital media and personal data across various platforms.

In an era where digital content faces constant threats, the need for robust cybersecurity solutions is crucial. The partnership between Fobi AI and Verifiction addresses these challenges by introducing cutting-edge solutions designed to safeguard digital assets against manipulation, forgery, and unauthorized access.

Rob Anson, CEO of Fobi AI, emphasized the importance of this partnership, stating, "Partnering with Verifiction aligns with our goal to secure our Fobi Data Exchange and provide a fortress-like security akin to what Norton AntiVirus offers for personal computing. Verifiction’s advanced technology ensures the safety of digital identities and assets, which is vital for content creators and media distributors in today’s digital age."

The collaborative effort will focus on developing plug-in solutions tailored to the cybersecurity and digital media sectors, enabling the verification of digital asset authenticity and ownership. This initiative is expected to mitigate risks of copyright infringement and content tampering.

On April 16, Technical Analyst Clive Maund wrote, "So, let's get this clear. Fobi has positioned itself as the third largest creator of digital wallets after Apple and Google in what promises to be a massive growth sector."

Charles Gadalla, CEO of Verifiction, added, "Our alliance with Fobi AI marks a significant step towards tackling the prevalent cybersecurity challenges that threaten the digital and media landscape. Together, we are set to deliver scalable, trustworthy verification and authentication solutions that will empower businesses and content creators to protect their digital assets and uphold the integrity of their work."

The strategic partnership promises to enhance the overall security and reliability of the cybersecurity and digital media industries, establishing stringent validation processes for digital assets and fostering a secure, reliable digital ecosystem.

Why AI?

Artificial Intelligence is a game-changer going forward, especially in terms of security. It is dependent on trust, though. As IBM Newsroom pointed out on May 6, "Generative AI holds enormous potential to transform business operations and our daily lives. But ultimately, AI’s potential hinges on trust. If trust in AI is compromised, it could throttle investment, adoption, and our ability to rely on these systems for their intended purpose — turning AI’s promise into liability and sunk costs."

The allure of AI stretches across many industries, with companies pouring money into the technology and making security a major issue. According to SC Media on March 19, "AI funding in the U.S. jumped up 14% in 2023, according to CB Insights, and research by BlackBerry in early 2023 found 82% of IT decision-makers planned to invest in AI-driven cybersecurity within the next two years."


The recent strategic partnership between Fobi AI Inc. and Verifiction emerges as a significant catalyst for growth, particularly in enhancing Fobi AI's reach in cybersecurity and digital asset management. By integrating Verifiction’s advanced data verification and cybersecurity technologies, Fobi AI is set to bolster its Fobi Data Exchange, adding robust security features that enhance its appeal in industries where data integrity is critical. This enhancement not only strengthens Fobi AI's existing infrastructure but also positions the company as a comprehensive solution provider in the cybersecurity market, likely attracting new business from sectors that prioritize data security.

Moreover, this partnership is anticipated to open new market opportunities for Fobi AI, particularly in industries such as digital media, entertainment, and healthcare, where the protection and authenticity of digital assets are paramount. The potential increase in adoption of Fobi AI’s solutions across these sectors could significantly expand the company’s customer base and market presence.

Similar to the successful validation of its technology in the beverage industry through its agreement with Vancouver Island Brewing, this new collaboration with Verifiction serves to endorse Fobi AI’s capabilities within the digital asset and cybersecurity sectors. The successful implementation of their combined technologies could enhance Fobi AI's credibility, attracting further partnerships and establishing it as a leader in innovative digital asset management solutions. This positions Fobi AI at the forefront of addressing modern cybersecurity challenges, making its solutions highly attractive to prospective clients looking for state-of-the-art protection for their digital assets.

Expert Analysis

On April 16, Technical Analyst Clive Maund expressed optimism about Fobi's place in this important market, writing, "So, let's get this clear. Fobi has positioned itself as the third largest creator of digital wallets after Apple and Google in what promises to be a massive growth sector." 

Maund noted the potential for a strong uptick and went on to add, "
Despite the stock looking like a "no-brainer" on its 5-year arithmetic chart, it is important that we remain mindful of the fact that it is still locked into a bear market downtrend on its 5-year log chart, but having said that, there are several technical factors that point to it breaking out this downtrend soon."
