The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has approved patent for cross-chain technology that improves the connection between blockchains through domain names filed by e-commerce giant Alibaba.
The patent application revealed that when you are linking a site through a domain name like ‘.com’ or ‘.org’ on the internet, assigning a common domain name to a DLT or a part of the DLT makes it easier to create another blockchain, and it allows enhanced proof of identity and communication with participants in an across-the-board network.
Thus, the ‘unified domain name scheme’ can support inter-blockchain interaction in a simpler way than traditional interoperability initiatives.The domain name system was created with the consortium scheme in mind. It also comprises easy human-readable domain name support.
As for now, Alibaba acquired two patents related to blockchain network security and blockchain network transaction expiration date through the US Patent Office at the end of last year.
