Share Article

A mobile user has her own brand, like a domain. Her interactions with others via apps are recorded in a blockchain, to make a verified (functional) social network.

Linket Corp. is pleased to announce that the US Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) has given its CEO and founder, Dr Wes Boudville, a Notice of Allowance for the patent application, "Capacity and automated de-install of linket mobile apps with deep links." (http://bit.ly/2fjhtVQ) It will shortly publish as a patent.

The invention describes how a mobile on demand worker controls their own direct mobile brand, called a linket, which acts like a domain. The linket points to a mobile app and the network address of the worker. Mobile users click the linket to directly interact with the worker via the app, in a streamlined experience.

A blockchain records interactions. An analysis engine scans the blockchain to make a social network of users that interact via mobile apps. The blockchain permits a third type of social network. Facebook is the personal social network. LinkedIn is the professional social network. However both contain self-described and unverifiable information from users. With linket the information is confirmed through accurate logged entries in the blockchain.

Linket and the blockchain make a functional social network. Functional refers to apps that consumers actually use. It is a verified social network and not subject to changes by the user. The immutable blockchain lets the social network be based on authenticated activities.

Boudville says, "I am humbled by the PTO's recognition of this advance in ‚Äč American technology. Just as Facebook and LinkedIn revealed the value in their networks, our invention leverages the blockchain to make a truly different kind of social network with new value that we hope to unlock."

He has a PhD in Physics from Caltech and 9 patents on electronic barcodes for mobile uses. He is co-inventor of several patents pending that provide the basis for the MetaSwarm Product Suite for safeguarding Internet communications, including anti-spam and anti-phishing technologies.

Linket Corp. is a C Corporation established in Delaware. Its office is in Los Angeles.
