An analysis by noted Australian patent attorney Dr Nicola Maxwell found that Linket founder Boudville was 6th in a global list of influential blockchain patenters. Higher than Amazon.

Noted Australian patent attorney Dr Nicola Maxwell published an analysis yesterday of the global blockchain scene. The emphasis was on inventions - patents and patents pending.

There is a table of the top 10 entities worldwide, ranked by average number of citations per invention. In part, the table looks like this in descending order.

Overland Storage (US)                        
Sony (JP)                                            
Masterlock (US)                                
Qualcomm (US)                                
Cloudera (US)                                    
Wes Boudville (AU)                            
Security First (US)
Coinbase (US)
Amazon (US)                                        

Linket founder Boudville was the only individual, ranking 6th in a list dominated by giant firms. Ahead of Amazon !

The article is important to Linket. It is an independent validation of the usefulness of Linket's technology. Linket's 2 US patents are verdicts of the US government that those inventions are unique globally. Maxwell's article reinforces the US patents.

A matter of explanation: When someone files a patent pending, often it has a list of earlier inventions that are related. If an invention (patent or pending) is listed in many other inventions filed after it, this attests that the invention is important. If in the typical case those newer inventions are filed by different inventors, then this is even stronger testimony by numerous people in the field.

Linket and Boudville did not solicit or pay for Maxwell's article. She is a Principal in IP Solved, an Australian/US law firm specialising in intellectual property.
