Crypto Industry News:
The National Intellectual Property Administration (NIPA) in China continues to clarify the guidelines for Blockchain patent applications, which will come into force on February 1.
At the end of December 2019, NIPA announced revised guidelines on patent applications for new emerging technologies, such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and rules and business methods.
Examples of revised guidelines are methods and devices for secure communication between Blockchain nodes. The patent application of the invention proposes a method and device for communicating with a Blockchain node that solves the problem that Blockchain business nodes leak privacy data when communicating with each other. The guidelines read:
Before the business node in the Blockchain chain establishes the connection, it can determine whether to establish a connection according to the CA certificate transferred in the communication request and the pre-configured CA trust list. This reduces the risk of private data leaking from business nodes and improves the security of data stored in the Blockchain chain.
Analysts said the change in guidelines is a direct response to the needs of developing new industries such as Blockchain. It also reflects China’s strategic direction of strengthening intellectual property protection by being more friendly to patent applicants in these emerging fields – all of which seem to herald the long-awaited digital renminbi.
