I've stumbled upon this most interesting discussion about blockstream and their patents. As I understand Dash Core team wants to follow similar path and patent certain aspects of Dash technology in order to make sure that patent trolls won't get their hands on them. This discussion with patent attorney Stephan Kinsella (Big name among austro-libertarians) sheds some interesting light on defensive use of patents. I get an impression that patents are very disliked among the crypto community. I wonder what the rest of Dash community think about patents and Dash Core applying for them.
