Fidelity Investments, a financial services company, has filed trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a variety of Web3 products and services.
These include a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace, financial investment and cryptocurrency trading services in virtual worlds, and payment services such as electronic bill payments and fund transfers within virtual worlds.
The company has also indicated that it may offer educational and referral services in virtual worlds, as well as a digital marketplace for NFTs.
Fidelity’s trademark filings suggest that the company is looking to expand its involvement in the Web3 space, despite recent market challenges and events in the cryptocurrency industry.
Additionally, the company has also called for stronger regulation in response to concerns about the volatility of cryptocurrency assets.
