Application: Secure storage and transmission of a cryptocurrency encryption key (Patent ID: US20230421363A1)

The patent filed by FMR LLC describes methods and apparatuses for secure storage and transmission of a cryptocurrency encryption key. The apparatus includes components such as a microprocessor, security module, quantum computing module, speaker, and microphone. The method involves generating private and public keys, encrypting and transmitting them using ultrasonic sound waves between computing devices, and creating cryptocurrency wallets. The system ensures secure storage and transmission of encryption keys by validating software versions, generating signatures, and using quantum computing for key generation.

The method outlined in the patent involves a multi-step process where computing devices exchange information through ultrasonic sound waves to securely store and transmit cryptocurrency encryption keys. The first computing device activates a pairing function, analyzes software modules, generates signatures, and transmits data to the second computing device. The second device then validates the received data, generates new keys, and creates cryptocurrency deposit addresses. The system also includes a quantum computing module for generating random strings and private keys, ensuring a high level of security in the cryptocurrency transactions. Overall, the patent details a comprehensive approach to secure key management and cryptocurrency wallet creation using innovative technologies like quantum computing and ultrasonic communication.
