Data analysis indicates that the number of people and institutions spurring the crypto, non-fungible token (NFT), and metaverse investments have significantly increased since the start of this year compared to last year.

Trademark Fillings Increases In 2022

In a September 6 blog post, Mike Kondoudis, an intellectual property attorney, shared analytics data showing that the number of cryptos, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and metaverse patents this year surpassed those filed last year.

He confirmed that individuals and institutions had filled more than 3,600 trademark applications for crypto-related services with the United States Patents and Trademark Office (USPTO) as of August 31, 2022.

These applications have already surpassed those filed in the entire 2021. According to Kondoudis, USPTO received 3,516 crypto-related applications in the whole year of 2021. The number of NFT applications has surged even further to more than 5,800 compared to just 2,087 in 2021.

Moreover, the numbers of trademark fillings related to metaverse have doubled those filed last year. USPTO received 1,866 trademark fillings in 2021 compared to 4,150 applications as of August 31, 2022.

Compiled data showed that March recorded the highest filling numbers, with 1,078 for NFT, 604 for crypto, and 759 for the metaverse. July and August have recorded the lowest numbers of applications.

Trademark Filling Continues This Month

Trademark filings show no signs of slowing down and seem to continue. Earlier this month, the luxury brand Hermes announced filing a trademark application in the U.S for the use of its name in the metaverse, NFTs, and virtual currency.

Moreover, several other firms within the crypto space, including Meta, Formula One, Mastercard, McDonald’s, Gatorade, and the U.S. Space Force, have all filed filings with the USPTO this year, suggesting virtual products or involvement with crypto and blockchain.
