Patents are an essential element in protecting the core technology and laying the foundation for the technology to be globally accepted and adopted.
It is a momentous day for Syntropy and the Web3 community with the issuance of patent number 11,271,851 for the invention “System and Method for Autonomous Selection of Routing Paths in a Computer Network”. This protocol innovation, also known as DARP, solves the issues prevalent in the current internet framework and is foundational to enabling Web3. This patent is the first and most significant building block in our technology roadmap and patent strategy.
This patent protects one of the critical components in our technology stack that will empower our mission to decentralize and democratize internet access and networking for all. Syntropy is building a full-fledged patent portfolio with ten patents already filed and more under development. Our patented technology will foster an open internet economy for Web3.
Syntropy’s strong patent foundation provides significant protection for the technology. Legally, large companies now can’t block the alternative internet routing system and open internet economy we are building. As an open-source project, the legal protection applies to the technology itself, which is a significant enabling force for the community to freely adopt and build with Syntropy’s technology, creating a new routing standard. A comprehensive patent strategy facilitates the opportunity for industry players to adopt the technology and support continued innovation.
