Virtual Currency Patents — Definitions
As we use it here, “virtual currencies” include digital currencies, cryptocurrencies and other innovative electronic currencies, such as Bitcoin, Darkcoin, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Mastercoin, Namecoin, NXT, Peercoin, Ripple.
We track patents and patent applications that are substantially related to virtual currencies. Patents and applications that make only a passing reference to a virtual currency are generally not included. Please let us know if we have missed any important patents.
We track patent applications and patents that have been published or granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Although most applications are published, a small percentage (about 7%) are not published for various reasons. Patent applications are generally published 18 months after the first priority date of the application. Published applications have not necessarily been examined and some applications will be abandoned after publication. Once an application is examined and approved and all fees and formalities have been satisfied, the Patent Office grants a patent.
Patents have strict deadlines. Please contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
