(54) Title (EN): CRYPTOCURRENCY SYSTEM USING BODY ACTIVITY DATA
(54) Title (FR): SYSTÈME DE CRYPTOMONNAIE UTILISANT DES DONNÉES D'ACTIVITÉ CORPORELLE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): Human body activity associated with a task provided to a user may be used in a mining process of a cryptocurrency system. A server may provide a task to a device of a user which is communicatively coupled to the server. A sensor communicatively coupled to or comprised in the device of the user may sense body activity of the user. Body activity data may be generated based on the sensed body activity of the user. The cryptocurrency system communicatively coupled to the device of the user may verify if the body activity data satisfies one or more conditions set by the cryptocurrency system, and award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified.
(FR): L'activité du corps humain associée à une tâche fournie à un utilisateur peut être utilisée dans un processus de minage d'un système de cryptomonnaie. Un serveur peut fournir une tâche à un dispositif d'un utilisateur qui est couplé de manière à communiquer avec le serveur. Un capteur couplé de manière à communiquer avec un dispositif de l'utilisateur ou compris dans ce dernier peut détecter l'activité corporelle de l'utilisateur. Des données d'activité corporelle peuvent être générées sur la base de l'activité corporelle détectée de l'utilisateur. Le système de cryptomonnaie de la présente invention couplé de manière à communiquer avec le dispositif de l'utilisateur peut vérifier si les données d'activité corporelle satisfont une ou plusieurs conditions définies par le système de cryptomonnaie, et attribuer une cryptomonnaie à l'utilisateur dont les données d'activité corporelle sont vérifiées.
