Linket has 4000 owners and 4800 linkets

The linkets can be perused in the Registry on Linket’s website. You can search for the names of linkets or owners. The Registry shows that most linkets have whitespace and upper and lower case characters. As well as being in Unicode, so linkets can be written in Chinese or Hindi, for example. Linkets are more readable than domains or URLs, which are restricted to ASCII characters and which prohibit whitespace.

Unicode puts all languages equal. Unlike domains with a legacy burden of being restricted to Roman. This is germane because linkets are meant for interactions between mobile users. In the developing world the mobile phone is the most common personal computer. And China and India are massive markets where being able to see a brand in Chinese or Urdu (eg [وی گارڈ] aka [We Guard]) or Tamil (eg [ஆபரணம்] aka [Jewelry]) greatly adds to the value of the brand. And even for languages written in Roman, there are extra symbols that do not appear in domains. Consider the Spanish tilde, the French acute and the German umlaut. A linket can easily have any of these symbols. Countries and cultures push back against a linguistically dominant English by using linkets.

The Registry shows that many linkets give the profession and name of the owner, like [Accountant Yang] and
[Analyst Guo], while others are the name of a firm, like [AskBitcoiner]. Some linkets are just the name of the owner, like [Ирина Коваленко]   aka   [Irina Kovalenko].

The Registry is similar to a combination of Verisign and whois, to show whether a given linket exists or not. It also maps a linket to an app picked by the owner, and sends this map to cellphones.

Linket signs MOU with FitFreq

FitFreq uses Linket’s patented technology for enhanced functionality. FitFreq can segment its client base into users and trainers. A trainer gets a professional brand (“linket”) from Linket. The linket is akin to a domain name. A person finds and signs up with the trainer via the linket. The person downloads the FitFreq app without manually searching the app store. This increases use of the app for a live social network.

The trainer is in a different place from the person. He makes an income by having customers use the app. He undercuts fees charged by a fitness center for a personal trainer. His incentive to promote his linket brand increases use of FitFreq.

Linket benefits by having FitFreq design an app that can be accessed from Linket’s brand registry database. This increases the number of apps that use linkets, where the apps are made by independent firms.

It is an independent validation of the usefulness of Linket’s technology. Linket’s 2 US patents are verdicts of the US government that those inventions are unique globally. Maxwell’s article reinforces the US patents. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/12/prweb15023182.htm

Linket Gets a Second US Patent – to Help Apps Bypass Ad Blockers

Linket Obtains US Patent 9792101 for Blockchains and Mobile Uses

Interactions between the Linket owner and a user are stored in the blockchain. Producing verified social network data that can enhance the usefulness of Facebook and LinkedIn. The patent lets the blockchain be used to schedule events. A gig worker who owns a Linket can subcontract a gig to another worker who can verify details in the blockchain. The Linket owner can scale to a 365x24x7 business. A blockchain can have its own Linket brand. This anticipates when there are competing blockchains and branding becomes vital. Linket is independent of the mobile app that the linket uses. If the app goes out of business the Linket owner points it to another app. We protect the owner’s investment of time and money in the brand. A key distinction of our technology. Other apps that let users have brands have the drawback that the brands live only in those apps. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/11/prweb14884698.htm.
