Microsoft’s Strange ‘Body Activity Data’ Cryptocurrency Patent

Last June, Microsoft Technology Licensing, LLC filed an international patent for an odd design that uses humans to mine cryptocurrency via their physical activities, as opposed to using a computer-related mining device. The sketch is officially called the ‘Cryptocurrency System Using Body Activity Data’:

The design includes a brief abstract (description) which explains how it will function:

Human body activity associated with a task provided to a user may be used in a mining process of a cryptocurrency system. A server may provide a task to a device of a user which is communicatively coupled to the server. A sensor communicatively coupled to or comprised in the device of the user may sense body activity of the user. Body activity data may be generated based on the sensed body activity of the user. The cryptocurrency system communicatively coupled to the device of the user may verify if the body activity data satisfies one or more conditions set by the cryptocurrency system, and award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified.

The ‘publication date’ of the patent shows up as March 26, 2020 and, perhaps more interestingly, the ‘publication number’ is WO/2020/060606:

Some believe the publication number can be broken down (WO2020666) to mean something ominous: World Order 2020 666.

Others go even further: this new system is allegedly related to the roll out of Digital Identity Alliance (ID2020) and will aid Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates in vaccinating and microchipping every human being in the world.

This will all supposedly be done under the guise of eradicating COVID-19.
