In September, we reported that IBM came in second, behind Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, on an iPR Daily list that ranked global organisations by the number of blockchain-related patents they had filed.
The media outlet used data up until 10th August from across China, the EU, America, Japan and South Korea, and also consulted the International Patent System from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
Alibaba filed 90 blockchain-related patent applications and IBM was close behind with 89.
