One of the world leaders in the field of domain names, Verisign, plans to patent the implementation of the DNS Security Extension (DNSSEC) protocol using blocking technology. The corresponding application was published by the Bureau of Registration of US Patents and Trademarks, CoinDesk reports.

The DNSSEC protocol is used to protect against the spoofing of information in the response and to prevent users from accidentally migrating to malicious sites when changing the DNS address.

At the same time, Verisign offers to store digital certificates, public keys and other means of authentication on the server, which will ensure the protection of users from hacker attacks and other malicious acts.

Several methods of using the DNSSEC protocol are assumed, but at the moment Verisign does not say about the further development of the system.

Bitbox charges a 0.1% commission and supports 15 languages, including English, Korean, Chinese, Spanish, French and German. In Russia, the US, Japan and some other countries, the exchange is not available.

At the beginning of the year, Line Group applied for a license to the Japan Financial Services Agency, but the process dragged on because of tightening of the regulator's requirements in the light Coincheck exchange hack. All crypto exchange, wishing to provide services in the Japanese market, are required to obtain permission from the local regulator.

Currently, Line is also in the process of obtaining a license in the US. The company decided to open its first trading platform for crypto-currencies in Singapore, as this city-state adheres to a progressive approach to the regulation of the digital currency sphere.

With cryptocurrency, we are going to take our challenge in financial services global.
