Amazon-Blockchain? Online Retail Giant Receives PoW-Patent
Amazon has received a patent that sparked a lot of speculation in the crypto space. The patent is for a Proof-of-Work algorithm that works with Merkle trees. The patent reads:
“A proof-of-work system where a first party (e.g., a client computer system) may request access to a computing resource. A second party (e.g., a service provider) may determine a challenge that may be provided to the first party. A valid solution to the challenge may be generated and provided for the request to be fulfilled.”
The question is now what Amazon needs this proof-of-work system for. Blockchain is the first association that comes to mind when reading of proof-of-work. However, the use of such algorithms is not limited to blockchains. In fact, proof-of-work was invented to prevent spam.
