英国巴克莱银行申请加密货币专利

全球实力最强的国际商业银行——英国巴克莱银行(Barclays)本周申请了两项与加密货币相关的专利。这家拥有300年历史的传统银行正在抢占加密货币转账和分布式账本数据存储方面的专利。现在似乎有一种趋势,生态系统内外的企业都要锁定货币的未来潜力。

巴克莱申请了两项加密货币专利

也许这是即将发生什么事情的信号。17世纪晚期在伦敦创立的巴克莱银行本周向美国专利和商标局申请了两项专利。一个是关于“将数字货币从支付方转移到接收方的方法和系统,其中包括接收描述第一实体的数据标识符,”专利申请编号1511964.7。

另一项是“记录描述第一实体数据的方法和系统,描述第一实体的数据由第二实体验证,其中标识符与数据相关联,该标识符由第一实体公钥生成。”发明者Julian Wilson和David Fulton均来自英国柴郡。

没有哪家机构拥有比巴克莱更多的金融遗产。它是英国证券交易所的重要一员,在纽约证券交易所占据一席之地。几年前发表的一项研究表明,它是世界上实力最强的银行。

过去两年里,该银行在加密货币领域尤为活跃。去年夏天,它公开担心加密货币技术对其产业的威胁。今年春天,它与Coinbase合作,有传言称它正在考虑自己的加密货币交易平台。上述专利只会增加人们对该银行正对其未来财政进行定位的猜测。

所有相关专利

本周,万事达似乎也在申请加密货币专利。生态公司Nchain已经在稳步走上这条路,最近又获得3项专利。另一家银行,美国银行,今年正式成为加密货币专利之王。

巴克莱的专利,“安全的数字化数据操作”(Secure Digital Data Operations)指基于收到的标识符,检索区块链上的账目。用第二实体的公钥验证该账目。从检索到的条目中提取描述第一实体的数据,使用第三个实体的公钥对包含该账目的区块链上的一个区块进行验证。

它的另一项专利,“数据验证和存储(Data Validation and Storage)”,这个专利似乎是使用第二实体的至少一个私钥来验证和存储描述第一实体的加密签名数据。将交易提交至包含加密签名数据的区块链。这是一个获取描述第一实体数据的方法,该数据由第二实体背书。接收描述第一实体的数据的标识符。根据收到的识别符检索区块链上的账目。验证使用第二实体公钥的账目。从检索到的条目中提取描述第一实体的数据。

The UK’s Barclays, arguably the most powerful international corporate bank in the world, filed two crypto-related patents this week. The 300 year-old legacy bank gobbled up exclusivity over cryptocurrency transfers and distributed ledger data storage. There appears to be a trend for companies, both in and out of the ecosystem, aiming to lock up the potential of money’s future.

Barclays Files Two Crypto Patents

Maybe it’s a sign of things to come. Barclays, founded in London around the late 17th century, filed two patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office this week. One concerns a method “and system for transferring digital currency from a payer to recipient comprising receiving an identifier of data describing the first entity,” application number 1511964.7 reads.

The other is a method “and system for recording data describing a first entity, the data endorsed by a second entity comprising the second entity validating data describing the first entity, wherein an identifier is associated with the data, the identifier being generated from a public key of the first entity,” crediting inventors Julian Wilson and David Fulton, both of Cheshire, Great Britain.

It doesn’t get more legacy financial than Barclays. It is a staple on English stock exchanges, along with a definitive seat on the New York Stock Exchange. At least one study published just a few years ago pins it as the most powerful bank in the world.

The bank has been particularly active in the cryptosphere the past two years. Summer of last year, it openly worried about crypto’s threat to its industry. Spring of the present year saw it team with Coinbase, and rumors are it’s considering its own crypto trading desk. The above patents will only add to speculation the bank is positioning itself in light of future fiscal reality.

Patents All Around

This week, no less than Mastercard appears to be flirting with crypto patents. Ecosystem company, Nchain, has steadied in this way, collecting three more recently. Another bank, Bank of America, officially became the crypto patent king this year.

The Barclays patent, “Secure Digital Data Operations,”  involves retrieving “an entry from a block chain based on the received identifier. Authenticating the entry using a public key of the second entity. Extracting the data describing the first entity from the retrieved entry. Authenticating a block in the block chain containing the entry using a public key of a third entity,” it reads choppily.

Its other patent, “Data Validation and Storage,” seems to be cryptographically “signing data corresponding with the data describing the first entity using at least a private key of the second entity. Posting a transaction to a block chain including the cryptographically signed data. Method and system for obtaining data describing a first entity the data endorsed by a second entity comprising. Receiving an identifier of data describing the first entity. Retrieving an entry from a block chain based on the received identifier. Authenticating the entry using a public key of the second entity. Extracting the data describing the first entity from the retrieved entry,” it listed.
