20200358784, "Systems and methods for processing optimizations and templating using metadata-driven blockchain techniques," assigned to Live Nation Entertainment, Inc.
The present disclosure generally relates to Blockchain-based systems configured to process access rights to resources in a computationally efficient manner. Certain embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate to systems and methods that generate distributed applications to represent digital access rights to resources. Additionally, certain embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate to systems and methods that enhance the processing of assigning access rights using a Blockchain-based system using metadata.
20200356969, "Content distribution management system and method using blockchain technology," assigned to Alticast Corporation.
The present invention relates to a content distribution management technology using blockchain technology. The content distribution management system using blockchain technology, according to one embodiment, may comprise: a purchase transaction generation unit for generating a purchase transaction in response to a content purchase request signal from a user terminal; a broadcasting processing unit for broadcasting the generated purchase transaction; a transaction processing unit for collecting a use transaction if, after the broadcast purchase transaction is verified, the content corresponding to the verified purchase transaction is used on the user terminal; a transaction verification unit for verifying the collected use transaction; a block generation unit for generating a first block and a second block corresponding to the verified use transaction; and a distributed ledger management unit for separately recording the generated first and second blocks in respective distributed ledgers.
