Z-ARCHIVE-Cryptocurrency

Since the 2009 Bitcoin whitepaper, crypto currencies have risen in value, enabled decentralized global trade, but also endured market value fluctuation, theft, and use as tender for illegal transactions. Blockchain-based technology grows in interest to large and small corporations and investors, many of which are staking their claims within this emerging intellectual property sector by filing patent applications with the USPTO. The Cryptocurrency Forecast includes expert analyst opinion and insights, the full underlying dataset or all granted and published patents, plus access to the patent radar visualization.
