  • Patent number: 11282139
    Abstract: An exemplary method includes generating, by a trust computer system, script instructions to carry out a transaction involving one or more digital wallets held in a trust custody account so as to verify control of digital assets held in the one or more digital wallets, the trust computer system being operatively connected to a decentralized digital asset network that uses a decentralized electronic ledger in the form of a blockchain maintained by a plurality of computer systems to track asset ownership and/or transactions in a digital asset system, and generating script instructions includes accessing a statement associated with an event that occurred within a predetermined time frame, and generating, by the trust computer system, based on the script instructions, a transaction that involves a zero net payment from the account along with the statement, and payment of a transaction fee from a separate operating account.

  • Patent number: 10484376
    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.
