The idea was put on paper for my Masters Degree in 2014 and 2015.
Read about what I envisioned back then.
While the blockchain/crypto world has already come a long way since, and the terminology refined due to the negative press and some bad actors, the concept remains fully relevant and intact. For example, you can substitute the word ‘blockchain’ with ‘distributed ledger technology’. You can substitute the word ‘cryptocurrency’ with ‘token’ or ‘reward token’.
This version remains unchanged, and true to my original paper in order to preserve the invention while the patent was pending in the U.S., now granted, and while still pending in the E.U.
On February 9th, 2021, I am proud to announce that my patent was granted in the U.S.
