China's blockchain patent applications exceeded 10,000: Alibaba ranked first

The number of patent applications for blockchains in China has exceeded 10,000.

On September 26th, the inter-chain pulse was searched on the innojoy platform according to the keyword of “blockchain”. It has been observed that 10005 Chinese invention patents have been applied for so far, and the number of patent applications for blockchains in China has officially broken.

Among them, Alibaba still ranked first, applying for 534 blockchain patents. Followed by Unicom and complex beauty, the number of patent applications for blockchains with 212 and 196 items ranked second and third respectively.

Mutual chain pulse statistics, among the top 10 companies in the blockchain patent application (NetScience and Emory is tied for tenth), there are 6 in Shenzhen, 3 in Beijing, and 2 in Hangzhou. city.

At the same time, according to the total number of patent applications applied by enterprises in various regions, Shenzhen is still in the first place. The top ten enterprises belonging to Shenzhen have 860 patent applications, accounting for 42%; followed by Hangzhou, with 475 items. Accounted for 23%.

At the same time, the inter-chain pulse further counts the number of blockchain patent applications in colleges and universities. The first is Guangdong University of Technology, which applied for 59 blockchain patents; followed by Xi'an University of Electronic Science and Technology with 46 items; the third-ranked University of Electronic Science and Technology applied for 39 blockchain patents.

Tsinghua University ranked fifth with 34 blockchain patent applications. Universities such as Peking University and Zhejiang University have not entered the top ten list.

Inter-chain pulse observation shows that the top ten universities in the blockchain patent application have more courses related to blockchain. For example, in 2018, Xi'an University of Electronic Science and Technology opened a blockchain general course "Blockchain and Innovation and Entrepreneurship", "Blockchain Technology Principles and Development"; Tsinghua University launched a graduate course in September 2017. Cyber ​​Intelligence and Blockchain, etc.

From the perspective of time, the momentum of China's blockchain patent applications in 2019 does not seem to be as rapid as in 2018. This year, three-quarters of the total number of patent applications is less than half of the total in 2018. It can be seen that this year's blockchain R&D output seems to have a certain degree of reduction this year.
