Blockchain Smart Pools ​

We became the first founding member of the Blockchain Smart Pool to enhance global adoption of blockchain technology as part of our guiding mission.

This Blockchain Smart Pool, created in partnership with IPwe has already attracted over 130 companies, eager to develop their own technology on the blockchain, utilising our patents.

We have already added over 1,250 patents and patent applications.

“Entering the blockchain space in 2018, we identified Dr. Craig Wright and nChain as top five global innovators.”
