  • Publication number: 20200013046
    Abstract: An apparatus, including a database which stores information regarding accounts, and information regarding whether or not each account can be utilized to effectuate payment for a total cost of a transaction; a computer; a distributed ledger and Blockchain technology system; and a receiver. The receiver receives one or more transaction authorization requests regarding the transaction. The computer determines whether an account identified in an authorization request can be utilized to effectuate payment of the total cost. If the account is not allowed to effectuate payment for the total cost, the computer disallows the transaction if the account is presented to effectuate payment for the total cost. If the computer determines that the account is not presented to effectuate payment for the total cost, then the distributed ledger and Blockchain technology system processes each authorization request and determines if the transaction is authorized or unauthorized.
