Blockchain patent applications on the rise

Hot off the press is a listing of PCT patent applications identified using the keyword “blockchain” below.

Looking through the listing, the most obvious point is that almost all of the priority listings are from the United States. This is not surprising, however, given the United States share in geographic investment in Fintech.

A diverse range of companies and individuals are listed as applicants, including companies such as IBM, Apple and the Royal Bank of Canada.
