Blockchain and Fintech
Blockchain technology, which combines hardware, software, and cryptography, is changing the way global transactions are handled. It removes friction between transacting parties and sometimes eliminates the need for an intermediary. Blockchain technology is being used by a wide range of industries, from healthcare to banking, to manage supply chains, to credential healthcare professionals, and many other uses.
Fintech (financial technology) covers certain uses of blockchain technology (such as cryptocurrencies), but it encompasses more than just blockchain-based solutions. This includes mobile banking, investing services, and “smart card technology” for secure payments. The Fintech industry is characterized by the convergence of software, hardware, and digital security technology.

Many innovators working in the fintech and blockchain sectors believe their inventions are not eligible to be protected by patents or other IP protection. This is a false assumption. It is possible to protect algorithm-driven technical innovation and allow innovators freedom of operation as they build businesses on it. PatentPC is a pioneer in technology and method patents – We know what it takes to protect fintech and blockchain innovations.
