  • Publication number: 20170213287
    Abstract: A system for providing debt securities and other securities and commodity trading instruments. In particular, the system may allow for the decentralized issue and purchase of debt securities, reducing or eliminating many of the problems inherent in the centralized issue and purchase of debt securities. Such a system may include one or more decentralized data stores and a business web server operatively coupled to the one or more data stores, the business web server being configured to receive an investor request regarding a debt security instrument, match the investor to a debt security instrument using one or more identifiers, generate a transaction involving a change in the debt security instrument from the request information, recording the change in the decentralized data store, and transmitting a confirmation to the investor. A debt security instrument may be configured to mature automatically and provide an appropriate sum of virtual currency on maturity.

  • Publication number: 20130168962
    Abstract: The present invention generally relates to vehicle based power generation. Specifically, this invention relates to a vehicle based windmill apparatus capable of generating power via a wind turbine attached to an adjustable arm that raises and lowers out of a vehicle, depending on certain variables. The wind turbine can be utilized to generate power during deceleration by using wind force to turn the turbine, which in turn generates power while also having the secondary benefit of creating additional drag to help slow or stop the vehicle.
