  • Patent number: 10255635
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and program products for providing an exchange traded product holding digital math-based assets are disclosed. Shares based on digital math-based assets may be created using one or more computers by determining share price information based upon quantities of digital math-based assets held by a trust, electronically receiving a request from an authorized participant user device to purchase a quantity of shares, electronically transmitting a quantity of digital math-based assets to one or more destination digital asset accounts for receipt of digital math-based assets from the authorized participant based on the determined share price information and the requested quantity of shares, and electronically issuing shares to the authorized participant.

  • Patent number: 10158480
    Abstract: Autonomous devices and systems, methods, and program products for authorizing and performing autonomous devices transactions are disclosed. An autonomous device can be configured to generate a first hash value of a chain of hash values by applying a hash algorithm to first data including first new data and a first previous hash value of the chain of hash values, the first previous hash value computed by applying the hash algorithm to first previous data. The device can transmit to a transaction computer system the first hash value and the first new data. The device can generate and transmit to the transaction computer system a first signed electronic transaction request comprising first transaction data comprising a sending account identifier associated with the autonomous device, a destination account identifier, a transaction amount, and a timestamp. The device can digitally sign the transaction request using a private key of an asymmetric key pair.

  • Patent number: 10068228
    Abstract: Systems and methods for securely storing digital assets using a secure portal are disclosed. Using an isolated computer within an electronic isolation chamber, a plurality of digital asset accounts may be generated, and one or more private keys and a digital asset account identifier corresponding to each of the digital asset accounts may be obtained. A respective reference identifier may be associated with each digital asset account. At least one of the one or more private keys corresponding to each digital asset account may be divided into a plurality of private key segments and written to a card along with the respective reference identifier to create sets of collated cards, wherein each set comprises cards corresponding to different private keys.

  • Patent number: 10063548
    Abstract: Particular systems, methods, and program products for web-based security systems for user authentication and processing in a distributed computing environment are disclosed. A computing sub-system may receive an electronic processing request and a first signed data packet having a first payload that was hashed and encrypted using a first private key. The first payload may comprise first processing output and a first timestamp. The sub-system may verify the first signed data packet by decrypting it using a first public key. The sub-system may execute computing operations to satisfy the electronic processing request, producing second processing output. The sub-system may configure a data packet with a second payload comprising at least the second processing output and a second timestamp. The sub-system may encrypt the second payload using a second private key producing a second signed data packet. The sub-system may transmit to a second sub-system the second signed data packet.
