Giant payment network company MasterCard filed for the NFTs and Metaverse-based trademarks.
In the present time, NFTs based projects are still getting huge traction because there is still huge potential in the NFTs concept. No doubt that the NFTs concept became old but we should not forget that the current use cases of blockchain NFTs are limited to the virtual world but now it’s moving toward real-life use cases, where people will be able to verify their ownership of real-life assets like houses, rooms and properties.
On 8 April, Michael Kondoudis, NFTs and metaverse trademark attorney, notified his followers about the MasterCard’ Metaverse and NFTs trademarks filings application
