亚马逊获得流数据平台专利 可让用户接收实时加密货币交易数据

来自美国专利商标局(USPTO)的披露文件显示,亚马逊已经获得了一项流数据平台专利,可以让订阅用户接收实时加密货币交易数据。

该专利描述了一个系统,其中个人和企业组织可以将流数据用于销售,用户获得相关数据之后即可进行订阅。据悉,这项专利是在本周二(4月17日)授予电商及云计算巨头亚马逊的。

根据专利申请信息显示,开发人员可以构建一个实时分析平台,捕获异常交易,并且生成警报,驱动用户推荐,帮助企业制定其他实时业务或运营决策。

亚马逊在专利申请中还罗列出了一些市场上的潜在用例,比如网站点击流、市场营销和财务数据、制造装设仪器和社交媒体、运营日志、计量数据等等。不过,其中最值得注意的一个用例,就是加密货币交易平台。该专利中特别提到了比特币和加密货币交易数据的用例,并且表示个人数据流本身可能并不那么有价值,但是通过将这些数据和其他来源信息相结合,数据流可能会变得更有价值。

该专利指出:

“举个例子,接受比特币交易的一组电子或互联网零售商可以将比特币交易数据和物流地址结合起来,然后创建一个相关的数据组合,并且把这个组合数据重新发布到一个组合数据流中。”

不仅如此,亚马逊的这个专利还可能应用于市场执法机构,他们表示:

“比如,执法机构可能希望接收全球比特币交易,然后按照不同国家进行匹配,再结合ISP数据来确定与比特币地址相关联的IP地址和物流地址。”

值得一提的是,如果亚马逊决定拓展这个流数据专利,那么作为一个“中心化”的电子商务交易平台,亚马逊无疑会对这个市场上其他“去中心化”平台构成极大地竞争威胁。

Amazon has won a patent for a streaming data marketplace that could allow subscribers to receive real-time cryptocurrency transaction data.

The patent describes a system in which individuals and organizations can put streaming data feeds up for sale, to which customers can then subscribe. It was granted to Amazon Technologies, a subsidiary of the e-commerce and cloud computing giant, on Tuesday.

Adding on to that base, the filing says, developers could "build real-time dashboards, capture exceptions and generate alerts, drive recommendations, and make other real-time business or operational decisions."

Amazon's filing lists a number of potential use cases for the marketplace, including "web site click-streams, marketing and financial information, manufacturing instrumentation and social media, operational logs, metering data and so forth" - yet it includes one notable use case focused on the cryptocurrency market.

It argues that individual data streams may not be so valuable on their own, using bitcoin and cryptocurrency transaction data as an example. Yet by combining this data with information from additional sources, "the data stream may become more valuable."

The patent states:

"For example, a group of electronic or internet retailers who accept bitcoin transactions may have a shipping address that may correlate with the bitcoin address. The electronic retailers may combine the shipping address with the bitcoin transaction data to create correlated data and republish the combined data as a combined data stream."

The filing also mentions the marketplace's potential appeal to law enforcement.

"For example, a law enforcement agency may be a customer and may desire to receive global bitcoin transactions, correlated by country, with ISP data to determine source IP addresses and shipping addresses that correlate to bitcoin addresses," Amazon wrote. "The agency may not want additional available enhancements such as local bank data records. The streaming data marketplace may price this desired data out per GB (gigabyte), for example, and the agency can start running analytics on the desired data using the analysis module."

If Amazon decides to build the marketplace out, the centralized offering could pose a competitive threat to startups who are building similar yet more decentralized marketplaces.

Henri Pihkala, CEO of Streamer - one of the startups in question - told CoinDesk in an email that "data marketplaces aren't a new idea," but that "what is novel, is creating a space that finally gives users ultimate control over the data they create through their actions in the digital realm."

"If that's Amazon's ultimate vision, then bravo, but something might suggest it's not in the company's DNA to think like that," he added.
