As with other rapidly evolving technologies, the blockchain space is experiencing a frenzy of patent activity. The data shows that there are 3-4 times as many published applications as there are patents granted for these concepts. This trend strongly suggests that the number of blockchain patents will increase in the next few years. However, with recent changes in patent law, it is more important than ever to ensure that you analyze the patentability of blockchain inventions in light of these changes in order to conduct targeting that is likely to result in patents. Once probable patentable inventions are identified, it is important to draft patent applications and claims based on knowledge of how the patent office handled previous blockchain patent applications in order to maximize the likelihood of obtaining commercially significant, valid patents.
