  • Patent number: 10776781
    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating a transaction between a first entity and a second entity using a digital currency are described. In some aspects, a computing node participates in a private distributed ledger for a financial institution and stores one or more transaction blocks representing transactions in a digital currency. The digital currency is issued by the financial institution and is fixed with respect to a fiat currency. The computing node is configured to receive a transaction for transferring an amount of digital currency from a first entity to a second entity, generate a new transaction block representing the transaction, transmit the new transaction block to other computing nodes participating in the private distributed ledger, receive an indication of validity of the new transaction block, and insert the new transaction block into the private distributed ledger.

  • Patent number: 10748131
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, software, and computer implemented methods for intercepting data exchange requests and automatically imposing a hold period while the data exchange is evaluated for a user profile initiating the request. One example system includes operations to detect a data exchange request prior to completion of the attempted data exchange, the data exchange request including information defining the attempted data exchange and associated wherein the attempted data exchange is associated with a particular user profile. A portion of the information is transmitted to a data exchange analysis system for execution of a user profile-specific data exchange analysis based on the information and a status of the user profile. A hold state is initiated for the data exchange request while the analysis is performed. The results of the analysis are presented and a confirmation to proceed is required before allowing the attempted data exchange to be processed.
