Creating the Marketplace of Ideas - Unlocking the Value of Innovation

Operem is building the world's first blockchain-based Intellectual Property (IP) Licensing platform. Operem will allow patents and other IP to be licensed, traded, and shared, unlocking the US$180 billion annual worldwide patent market currently shackled by complex litigation, closed-door negotiation practices and inconsistent pricing. Operem’s blockchain infrastructure enables a transparent and liquid IP market by providing price discovery, visibility of ownership, and an immutable history of transactions.

The Operem Exchange™ Platform

The Operem Exchange Platform

We believe it's time to open up one of the last massively closed asset classes to everyone: intellectual property (IP). The Operem Exchange™ will do just that. We are building the world’s first blockchain-based trading exchange for patents, trademarks, and other IP.
