The company with the most cryptocurrency patents is Bank of America with a grand total of 45.
Over 2,000 cryptocurency related patents have been filed, the Bitcoin Patent Report reveals.
Last year, a total of 1,250 cryptocurrency patents were filed, demonstrating the extent to which corporations have finally caught on to bitcoin’s huge potential.
