Those Winklevoss twins are at it again.

U.S. entrepreneurs Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have received another patent, this time for a system to provide crypto-based exchange-traded products, or ETPs, according to a filing published by the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office this week.

The new patent represents systems, methods and program products for using ETPs that hold “digital assets” and “other products and/or services related to ETPs holding digital assets,” such as bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), ripple (XRP), and litecoin (LTC), according to Cointelegraph.

The Winklevosses are listed as the inventors along with three others. In May they received patent approval for a system that allows their company, Winklevoss IP, to settle ETPs using cryptocurrencies. Read more here.
