Marshawn Lynch, a former NFL star, has submitted an application to trademark “BEASTMODE” for use in connection with NFTs and other goods and services.
Lynch has stated that he intends to leverage the brand to sell authenticated goods from NFT in addition to digital memorabilia. Fans dubbed him “Beast Mode” because of his tendency to repeatedly run over defenders.
Michael Kondoudis, a registered patent and trademark attorney in the United States, claims that the application was filed with the USPTO on January 20.
The application’s serial number is 97761943. Today, Kondoudis was the first to announce the change on his verified Twitter account.
Lynch Will Present NFT Antiques
Lynch’s trademark application gives away his intentions to use the moniker to sell digital downloads. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), including blockchain-based NFTs, and a variety of NFT collectibles and digital collectibles are among these products.
Lynch applied to trademark “Beast Mode” in 2008, after the term had become more popular due to his efforts. He stated his intention to make money off the trademark by selling T-shirts in the future in the application.
The result was the launch of Beast Mode Apparel. Lynch’s decision to enter the NFT industry may have been influenced by the rapid pace of adoption in the industry.
NFTs And The Metaverse Are Gaining Widespread Interest
Several other well-known people in addition to Lynch have previously filed trademark applications for NFT. One of the most well-known American basketball players, Steph Curry, attempted to register the term “Curryverse” as a trademark last year.
The basketball player plans to make a profit off the name by offering a range of leisure services and virtual goods through the Metaverse.
Many of the world’s most prestigious corporations have applied to register trademarks for NFT-related products and services. We carry names you know and trust, like Lionsgate, Rolex, Nissan, Visa, and Ford. This is an example of the widespread acceptance and use of the cryptocurrency that is happening right now.
