Kind Code   A1
Durbin; Thomas Edward ;   et al.   September 17, 2015
System and Method for Wire Transfers Using Cryptocurrency

Abstract
A system includes a memory and a processor. The processor is coupled to the memory and causes the system to receive an electronic request for a fund transfer and initiate a debit of a first amount of a first currency from a customer account. In response to determining using cryptocurrency is optimal, the processor can transfer the first amount of the first currency into an account associated with a first cryptocurrency exchange and initiate the purchase of a first quantity of a cryptocurrency from the first cryptocurrency exchange. The processor can transfer the first quantity of the cryptocurrency to a second cryptocurrency exchange and initiate the sale of the first quantity of the cryptocurrency at the second cryptocurrency exchange. The processor is further able to initiate the transfer of at least a portion of the resulting currency to a recipient.

Description


TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] This invention relates generally to wire transfers, and more specifically, to a system and method for wire transfers using cryptocurrency.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0002] Enterprises handle a large number of foreign wire transfer requests on a daily basis. As technology advances, foreign transactions have become more common. For some customers, it may be desirable to conduct a foreign wire transfer in less time than what current foreign wire transfer systems allow.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0003] According to embodiments of the present disclosure, disadvantages and problems associated with previous wire transfer systems may be reduced or eliminated.

[0004] In certain embodiments, a system includes a memory and a processor. The memory may store a customer account associated with a customer. The processor may be communicatively coupled to the memory and may cause the system to receive an electronic request for a fund transfer from the customer and initiate a debit of a first amount of a first currency from the customer account. The processor may also cause the system to determine whether using cryptocurrency is optimal. In response to determining using cryptocurrency is optimal, the processor may cause the system to transfer the first amount of the first currency into an account associated with a first cryptocurrency exchange and initiate the purchase of a first quantity of a cryptocurrency from the first cryptocurrency exchange, wherein the first quantity of cryptocurrency is equivalent to the first amount of the first currency. The processor may also cause the system to transfer the first quantity of the cryptocurrency to a second cryptocurrency exchange and initiate the sale of the first quantity of the cryptocurrency at the second cryptocurrency exchange, wherein the sale of the first quantity of cryptocurrency results in a second amount of a second currency. The processor is further able to initiate the transfer of at least a portion of the second amount of the second currency to a recipient.

[0005] Particular embodiments of the present disclosure may provide some, none, or all of the following technical advantages having specific technical effects. In certain embodiments, components of the system may initiate fund transfers using cryptocurrency bypassing the use of traditional wire services thereby reducing dependency on third party networks and increasing the reliability of fund transfers. In another embodiment, initiating fund transfers using cryptocurrency allows for the technical effect of conducting a foreign fund transfer in less time than a foreign fund transfer currently, as it avoids delays that may be caused by relying on third party systems and services. In some embodiments, fund transfers using cryptocurrency reduces the reliance on third party systems and the transfer of customer data to third party system, thus increasing control and security of customer data.

[0006] Certain embodiments of the present disclosure may include some, all, or none of the above advantages. One or more other technical advantages may be re

yes, these were  made more to illustrate  where the future of cryptocurrency. But this one.... OMG Bank of America just hand in to me.... irresistible!!!!.

really... look at this from the patent claim (since I have been using it for a little less then a year, it is really good ):

1. A system comprising: a memory operable to: store a customer account associated with a customer; and a processor communicatively coupled to the memory, the memory including executable instructions that upon execution cause the system to: receive an electronic request for a fund transfer from the customer; initiate a debit of a first amount of a first currency from the customer account; determine whether using cryptocurrency is optimal; in response to determining using cryptocurrency is optimal: transfer the first amount of the first currency into an account associated with a first cryptocurrency exchange; initiate the purchase of a first quantity of a cryptocurrency from the first cryptocurrency exchange, wherein the first quantity of cryptocurrency is equivalent to the first amount of the first currency; transfer the first quantity of the cryptocurrency to a second cryptocurrency exchange; initiate, essentially simultaneously as the initiation of the purchase, the sale of the first quantity of the cryptocurrency at the second cryptocurrency exchange, wherein the sale of the first quantity of cryptocurrency results in a second amount of a second currency; and communicate a message to a local automated clearing house, the message requesting a transfer of at least a portion of the second amount of the
second currency to a recipient.

second currency to a recipient.  

So if the processor  is used to  determining wich cryptocurrency is optimal: transferring the first amount of the first currency into an account associated with a first cryptocurrency exchange; initiating, using the processor, the purchase of a first quantity of a cryptocurrency from the first cryptocurrency exchange, wherein the first quantity of cryptocurrency is equivalent to the first amount of the first currency; transferring the first quantity of the cryptocurrency to a second cryptocurrency exchange; initiating, using the processor, the sale of the first quantity of the cryptocurrency at the second cryptocurrency exchange, wherein the sale of the first quantity of cryptocurrency results in a second amount of a second currency; and initiating, using the processor, the transfer of at least a portion of the second amount of the second currency to a recipient. Could you mention exchanges on it? How many currencies will be on it? What if the processor fail happens? How much will it cost?  Besides I see many fees also associated like to:
fees due to first exchange to select the purchase of a first quantity of the first cryptocurrency
+ fees by transferring the first quantity of the cryptocurrency to a second cryptocurrency exchange,+ fees by the sale of the first quantity of the cryptocurrency at the second cryptocurrency exchange + fees by the transfer of at least a portion of the second amount of the second currency to a recipient + fees of the network of the cryptocurrency + fees by service Bank+ Electronic Device to be used   .   It sounds very expensive.

It's rather sobering to see the degree to which people are dominated by casual misperceptions.

The OP's coin is satirical.

 ... it's just a tad unfortunate that the satire is somewhat misdirected.

The patent application makes not one single mention of the blockchain.

All BOA seem to be doing is getting in first, asserting a claim to be able to optionally use their current system to route wire transfers via existing cryptocurrency networks when reliability/time/control factors are an economic factor.

Seems quite a sensible and logical business move. There doesn’t seem anything to satirise, really. Or anything to twist knickers.

I boiled down their graphic, for clarity and imported the key commercial advantages from the text:



's just another app that makes calls on the API of a (dynamically-selected) cryptocurrency in order to effect wire transfers of fiat. In the BOA model, the  cryptocurrency simply acts as a carrier for any run-of-the-mill wire transfer, BOA’s system instructs the exchanges on the fiat-to-crypto-and-back conversions and makes the final delivery of fiat to the recipient.

The really valuable take-home is a US retail bank’s sober assessment of the advantages of using cryptocurrency, a useful arrow for the quiver of anyone making a cryptocurrency business pitch.

Why did BOA choose you? What are your credentials?
Why not use the already established altcoin that uses smart contracts? Why use a noname exchange and not one based in United States?
