MasterCard recently made a move that most companies interested in entering the Web3 ecosystem do; read on to find out what moves this financial powerhouse has taken recently
MasterCard in the Metaverse
Few payment facilitators feature a more extensive operation than MasterCard, and this company has been at the forefront of financial innovations for a while now. Naturally, as other companies in its space, including Amex and Visa, made NFT and Metaverse-related filings in February and March, it was only a matter of time until MasterCard followed suit.
The fact that MasterCard’s Web3 related SEC filings were finalized after Visa and Amex does not mean that this company is a slow adopter of new technologies. Far from it, and when you consider that there’s a lot that goes into SEC filings, MasterCard may have launched its filing initiative in-house a while back.
Whether MasterCard is late to the party or not, the important thing is the company is finally here. According to recent reports by a trusted Intellectual Property lawyer, MasterCard has submitted a myriad of trademark applications, including a few for some of them its most recognizable brand assets.
When financial services providers enter the Web3 space, it’s always interesting to see how these companies will help revolutionize or at the very least improve their sector through Web3 technology. Over the next few moments, we’ll look into what the company registered brand assets in its Metaverse-related SEC filings.
Financial Services in the Metaverse
MasterCard recently submitted fifteen fresh trademark applications to register brand assets, including “MasterCard,” the company’s “Circles logo,” and its “Priceless” slogan. A range of financial services and products, virtual, and crypto services will be covered in patents filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on April 4, 2022.
