Visa has filed a patent application to create ‘digital fiat currency’ on a centralized computer system using blockchain technology. Bills have been introduced in both the House and the Senate that would create a digital dollar at the Federal Reserve. The digital dollar would be ideal for providing financial benefits to citizens (in exchange for total obedience). A Masonic symbol appears in the schematic drawing inside the patent. Unspoken in this article is that this move will facilitate phasing out currency altogether by allowing VISA to use its payments system to exchange fiat dollars for crypto dollars. The cashless society, which long has been the dream of bankers and globalist, soon will become a reality. -GEG

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published today that Visa V has filed a patent application to create digital currency on a centralized computer using blockchain technology. This patent applies to digital dollars as well as other central bank digital currencies such as pounds, yen, and euros and so the physical currency of a central bank anywhere in the world could be digitized.

Described as ‘Digital Fiat Currency’ the patent was initially filed by Visa on November 8, 2019, with the USPTO commenting today, “It takes quite a while…” to publish the filing of a patent. Visa’s patent is described as a central entity computer that receives requests that include the serial number and denomination of a physical currency. The creation of the digital currency and the removal of the physical currency from circulation in a fiat currency system is recorded on a blockchain.

“Visa has a vast global team of inventors and innovators working on cutting edge payment technologies. Each year we seek patents for hundreds of new ideas,” says a Visa spokesperson. “While not all patents will result in new products or features, Visa respects intellectual property and we are actively working to protect our ecosystem, our innovations and the Visa brand.”

J. Christopher Giancarlo, Senior Counsel at Willkie Farr and Gallagher and former Chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, commented on Visa’s patent filed with the USPTO: ‘This confirms when the U.S. does big things like the space program and the Internet, there are partnerships between the private and public sector. This patent filing is evidence the private sector is very much at work on the future of money.” Giancarlo has been very active at the virtual ‘Consensus Distributed’ conference this week hosted by Coindesk.

Congress considered the idea of a digital dollar when debating the CARES Act, the third COVID-19 relief package. Although the digital dollar was not included in the final legislation, separate bills have been introduced in both the House and the Senate that looks to legally create a digital dollar at the Federal Reserve and also a digital dollar wallet at the U.S. Treasury. The digital dollar was suggested to provide economic stimulus benefits and possibly universal basic income to Americans.

The full abstract of the patent filed by Visa is described as, “Techniques are disclosed which include receiving, by a central entity computer, a request for digital currency. The request includes a serial number and a denomination of a physical currency. The central entity computer generates the digital currency for the denomination and linked to the serial number.” Visa’s patent goes on to state, “The generating includes recording the digital currency on a blockchain. The central entity computer transmits a notification of the generation of the digital currency. The central entity computer causes removal of the physical currency from circulation in a fiat currency system.” An image of the patent filing is listed below.

Back in the early 80’s I read the book by Dr. Mary Stewart Relfe The New Money System in which she fully explained the odd numerical sequencing of 666 in the UPC codes. It stunned me to think that here we were witnessing the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and yet over the years too many questions like for example how exactly would or could something like this ever be truly brought to fruition on a global scale? It’s all becoming clear now isn’t it? The evolution of technology never ceases to amaze.
