  • Craig Wright to go against JP Morgan in a patent conflict.

Bitcoin SV (BSV) lead developer, Craig Wright has come out claiming that he had already patented what JP Morgan intends to do with the new JPM Coin. The largest bank in the United States, which also the sixth largest in the world hit the headlines yesterday after announcing plans to issue a cryptocurrency.

JP Morgan”¦Patent 32. DFAs Oh, you did not check?

I have patents on what you want to do.

Have a nice life.”

He later replied to the above tweet citing a patent title, “Systems And Methods For Implementing Deterministic Finite Automata (DFAs) via A Blockchain”. The patent which is referenced WO 2018/078584 Ai says:

“The invention relates to a technique for implementing, controlling and automating a task or process on a blockchain such 00 as, but not limited to, the Bitcoin blockchain. The invention is particularly suited for, but not limited to, automated execution of contracts 00 such as smart contracts for financial agreements.”

The content describes a DFA as:

“A mathematical model of computation conceived as an abstract machine which can be in one of a finite set of states, and can change from one state to another (transition) when a triggering event or condition occurs. Its computational capabilities are more than those of combinational logic but less than those of a stack machine.”
