Application: Actor model payment processing engine (Patent ID: US20240104519A1)

The patent filed by the Royal Bank of Canada describes methods, systems, and techniques for processing payments using an actor model payment processing engine. The payment processing method involves receiving a payment instruction, storing corresponding events in an event journal, and performing the payment instruction using an event-sourced, actor-based system that transitions through different states in response to the instruction. The system can perform actions in both stateless and stateful environments, involving non-event sourced and event sourced actors.

Furthermore, the payment processing method includes features such as real-time fraud determination, payment fund reservation, account validation, and payment scoring. The system is redundantly implemented with primary and secondary systems, utilizing a recovery application to ensure continuity in case of unavailability. The method also involves updating software, disproportionately routing payment instructions, and managing database failures through domain name servers. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to payment processing using an actor model engine that efficiently handles various aspects of payment transactions while ensuring reliability and redundancy in the system.
