Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB:GOPH) BREAKING NEWS: Gopher Protocol, a company specializing in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence, enabling mobile technologies, is working to integrate its Guardian Patch radio technology within its digital coin Blockchain system. Gopher recently was granted its Guardian Patch patent and filed a non-provisional patent for its cryptocurrency system. As previously disclosed, Gopher's exclusive licensor filed a non-provisional patent covering a proprietary GRC Blockchain-Based Radio Generated Digital Currency as announced on June 19, 2018 - https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/GOPH/news/Gopher-Protocols-Exclusive-Licensor-Files-Patent-Covering-Proprietary-GRC-Blockchain-Based-Radio-Generated-Digital-Curre?id=195811
The Guardian Patch system is using Gopher's proprietary radio system in order to achieve long distance data exchanges (i.e. transactions). According to the patent, the device's radio system is designed to consist of advanced methods providing for a global communication system for tracking purposes. The GRC, which is designed to be a new generation of cryptocurrency, will be using the Guardian Patch System in order to perform transactions and operations. In this way each Guardian Patch user will have the option to use the GRC when utilizing the Guardian Patch.
The Guardian Patch is a communications device that is self adhesive and can be affixed to any object in order to track it anywhere on Earth. The Guardian Patch can track object's movements, in real time, at any location in the world, indoors, outdoors, and underground. The system can establish a location completely passively using its own radio technology. The Guardian patch enables a whole new range of "real-life location analytics". It could track exactly how many miles your object moved, cities/towns visited, velocity of travel, how long the object was at a specific location, altitude and temperature as well as the object's current movement in real time. The system includes its own power source that is expected to last one year.
Danny Rittman, Gopher's CTO stated "We believe the integration of the Guardian Patch radio system within our digital coin system will enable an entire world of possibilities. Since the GRC is based on an entire new concept, an out-of-the-box approach was needed and this is why our Guardian Patch radio system was selected. Using our digital coin within our private network will enable users from all over the world to perform secured and private transactions with maximum efficiency.
