New York Stock Exchange files a metaverse trademark
To start trading NFTs
The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) plans to enter metaverse after filing a trademark application yesterday.
First shared by trademark attorney Mike Kondoudis on Twitter, the NYSE has applied to register the term “NYSE” for digital assets, including NFTs, cryptocurrencies, collectibles, art, and media, as well as a marketplace to trade and exchange them.
The NYSE also plans to develop virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality software to enable users to experience “virtual reality and augmented reality visualization, manipulation, and immersion,” hinting towards the metaverse.
“This filing is the latest confirmation that the Metaverse is real and businesses need to plan accordingly. Businesses no longer need to wonder if it is going to happen. It is just a matter of when.” Kondoudis said. “The NYSE is clearing taking a proactive, forward-thinking approach to ensure that it is the leading financial exchange in the Metaverse.”
Back in 2021, the exchange launched its first series of six NFTs to celebrate the first trades of Spotify, Snowflake, Unity, DoorDrash, Roblox, and Copang.
