The “Innovation Momentum 2023: The Global Top 100“ report analyses shifts, in patent portfolio strength over the last two years to identify the companies shaping the future of science and technology.

Zug, 31 Jan 2023 – nChain, global leader in blockchain technology, is proud to announce its inclusion in the second annual “Innovation Momentum: The Global Top 100” report by LexisNexis®.

The Top 100 recognises companies advancing innovative solutions to today’s challenges and laying the intellectual property foundations for further breakthroughs. The report also highlights how the world’s most dynamic and innovative companies worldwide are making a difference to technological progress.

Stefan Matthews, CEO said: “At nChain, we are both delighted and proud to be part of this select group of innovative companies for second year running. Innovation is at the core of our company mission to transform the world from Web2 to Web3, and our patents are the foundations for many companies to seamlessly make this transition. Joining this Top 100 is testament to the impact that our patents are making on many businesses that have chosen to adopt our technology for its scalability, speed, and efficiency.”

The Innovation Momentum report follows the Patent Asset Index, an industry-trusted, scientifically developed index created to assess patents based on size and individual quality of all patent families belonging to a patent portfolio. The Innovation Momentum was developed to provide an unbiased framework to identify innovators who outperformed their peers over the period of the previous two years based on the “Technology Relevance” and “Market Coverage” of their patent portfolios.

Owen Vaughan, Chief Science Officer at nChain Licensing, said: “It is the mission of the nChain R&D team to create the knowledge and tools to build Web3. Our IP covers blockchain infrastructure and applications, cryptography, network analytics, and emerging technologies such as IPv6 and zero-knowledge proofs. We aim to make this knowledge accessible through academic papers, conferences, blogs, and interviews. Having our extensive work in this field recognised by Lexis Nexis drives us to strive for new ideas and inventions that will eventually have a positive impact for many businesses and organisations.”
