Metaverse and NFTs take hold in the football space
As associations, brands, and big names all over the planet show expanding interest in non-fungible tokens and the metaverse as better approaches to interface with fans, British football club Crystal Palace has chosen to get on board with that fleeting trend also.
To be sure, Crystal Palace F.C. recorded a brand name application for its peak with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on June 27, as indicated by the authorized metaverse brand name lawyer Michael Kondoudis who imparted the news to his supporters by means of Twitter on July 1.
As a component of its brand name application, the football club takes care of NFTs, digital currencies, computerized collectibles, virtual footwear, dress, and athletic equipment, online digital art and crypto commercial centers and trades, NFT-confirmed media, and that’s just the beginning.
With this documenting, Crystal Palace has continued in the strides of other high-profile football members, including the French football club Paris Saint-Germain, which petitioned for its NFT-related brand name application in mid-March.
Toward the beginning of June, the English Premier League, perhaps of the most-watched sport associations universally, inside which Crystal Palace F.C. contends, wandered into the metaverse with two filings before the USPTO for its name and “lion head” logo, close by the “cherishing cup prize” logo.
What’s more, in late June football star and Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo went into a long term restrictive NFT organization with Binance, the world’s biggest digital currency trade by exchanging volume, with a point of making a few NFT items on the stage.
Interest in the metaverse and NFT across ventures
The NFTs and metaverse don’t simply engage the universe of football. A portion of the other significant names to join the space lately incorporate National Basketball Association (NBA) star Kevin Durant, American eCommerce monster eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY), driving chocolate producer Mars Inc., automaker DeLorean Motor Company, rapper Snoop Dogg, and some more.
