A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR VERIFYING OWNERSHIP OF A DIGITAL ASSET USING A DISTRIBUTED HASH TABLE AND A PEER-TO-PEER DISTRIBUTED LEDGER (patentscope.wipo.int)

A computer-implemented method (600) and system (1) for verifying ownership of a computer software for installation using a distributed hash table (13) and a peer-to-peer distributed ledger (14). This may be the Bitcoin blockchain or an alternative blockchain implementation. The method includes determining (610) a second user public key associated with a second user (24) from a transaction record stored on the peer-to-peer distributed ledger (14). A second public key associated with the…

If you have old ASICSs, get them ready. We'll need every hash power to make sure bitcoin is secure after the fork. (reddit.com)

Our first duty is to protect and defend forever bitcoin ecosystem and bitcoin network. The sole principle of existence and the future is this. This principle is your most valuable treasure. Also even in the future, there will be internal and external enemies who will want to deprive you of this treasure. One day if you are obliged to defend Bitcoin and the network, you will not think of the circumstances, opportunities and conditions in which you will be found in order to begin your duties…

A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONTROLLING THE PERFORMANCE OF A CONTRACT USING A DISTRIBUTED HASH TABLE AND A PEER-TO-PEER DISTRIBUTED LEDGER (patentscope.wipo.int)

A computer-implemented method (100) and system (1) for controlling the performance of a smart contract. The method includes storing a contract on or in a computer-based repository. The contract is associated with a licence between a first user (U1) and a second user (U2). The method further includes receiving, over a communications network, a transaction comprising a transfer of a token from an agent (A) to the first user (U1) or the second user (U2). The transaction comprises metadata that…

A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR SECURING COMPUTER SOFTWARE USING A DISTRIBUTED HASH TABLE AND A BLOCKCHAIN (patentscope.wipo.int)

A computer-implemented method (100) and system (1) for determining a metadata M for securing a controlled digital resource such as computer software using a distributed hash table (13) and a peer-to-peer distributed ledger (14). This is a blockchain such as the Bitcoin blockchain. The method includes determining (110) a data associated with the computer software and determining (120) a first hash value based on the computer software. A second hash value based on the data and the computer…
