Title (EN) CRYPTOCURRENCY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE MONNAIE CRYPTOGRAPHIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A computer-implemented method for managing cryptocurrency is disclosed. A plurality of users are provided with an in- marketplace wallet suitable for storing linked digital tokens that are linked in value to cryptocurrency tokens and are required to transact on a digital marketplace platform. A cryptocurrency reserve is provided for storing cryptocurrency tokens. Responsive to a user purchasing linked digital tokens from a marketplace store, linked digital tokens are transferred to the in- marketplace wallet an equivalent value of cryptocurrency tokens are transferred to the cryptocurrency reserve. Responsive to a user withdrawing a number of linked digital tokens from the in- marketplace wallet, the desired number of linked digital tokens are removed from the user's in- marketplace wallet and an equivalent value of cryptocurrency tokens are transferred from the cryptocurrency reserve to an out-of- marketplace wallet of the user for storing cryptocurrency tokens outside of the marketplace platform.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé mis en œuvre par ordinateur de gestion de cryptomonnaie. Une pluralité d'utilisateurs sont pourvues d'un portefeuille dans le marché approprié pour stocker des jetons numériques liés qui sont liés en valeur à des jetons de cryptomonnaie et qui sont nécessaires pour effectuer une transaction sur une plateforme de marché numérique. Une réserve de cryptomonnaie est prévue pour stocker des jetons de cryptomonnaie. En réponse à l'achat par un utilisateur de jetons numériques liés à partir d'une mémoire de marché, des jetons numériques liés sont transférés au portefeuille dans le marché, une valeur équivalente de jetons de cryptomonnaie étant transférée à la réserve de cryptomonnaie. En réponse à un utilisateur retirant un certain nombre de jetons numériques liés du portefeuille dans le marché, le nombre souhaité de jetons numériques liés sont retirés du portefeuille dans le marché de l'utilisateur et une valeur équivalente de jetons de cryptomonnaie est transférée de la réserve de cryptomonnaie à un portefeuille hors marché de l'utilisateur pour stocker des jetons de cryptomonnaie en dehors de la plateforme de marché.
