Pedram SameniInteresting! Thanks Bruce for sharing. I think the bigger question is how they are going to market this. The main reason for popularity of Bitcoin is because it is de-centralized like internet. Or are you suggesting that this can interoperate with Bitcoin blockchain protocol while it can be centralized?

IP CloseUpHi Pedram, I think some of patent filings are suggesting that it could be possible to have a blockchain within the blockchain, as it were, or a semi-opened network. That may undermine the inherent transparency that makes the network attractive in the first place, but in the end that type of “openness” may be more viable to some businesses.
