Intuit, a financial software company based in the United States, has submitted a trademark application to enter the metaverse, crypto and non-fungible token (NFT) space.
The trademark applications, which were filed with the USPTO on January 5, disclose the company’s intentions to provide:
- Blockchain software for cryptocurrency payment processing and transaction processing.
- A virtual marketplace for buyers and sellers of digital goods authenticated by NFTs.
- Bill payment services in the field of cryptocurrency, digital currency, and virtual currency.
- Blockchain-based payment verification services.
- Creation and issuance of NFTs and digital tokens.
- Software for managing and validating transactions involving digital assets, digital tokens, NFTs, crypto tokens, and more.
Michael Kondoudis, a trademark attorney who specializes in Web3-related trademark registrations, tweeted the news earlier today.
Many other financial companies have previously submitted similar trademark applications. Fidelity Investments, for example, has applied for three trademarks, indicating its intention to venture into the NFT and metaverse markets, whilst HSBC has submitted trademark applications for its name and logo in order to enter the metaverse with virtual credit cards and NFTs.
