Since 2017, the retail giant has patented solutions for drones. In May 2017, for example, Walmart filed a application for a ‘Unmanned Air Delivery to a Safe Place’ system. Walmart has been flirting with cryptocurrencies for some time. Earlier this month, a patent was filed for a currency based on blockchain.
