NBA star, Stephen Curry has filed for a metaverse trademark according to an update from the Global Brand Database. GBD is a database that deals with global trademarks. Curry made the request on October 26, 2022 but has not been approved.
The Curryverse is a metaverse where users and fans around the world can earn NFTs related to the NBA star. If granted the trademark, Curry will be able to offer exclusive “entertainment services, namely, personal and virtual; entertainment, sporting and cultural activities; educational and entertainment services; athletic training and coaching services” and more, according to GBD.
Stephen Curry will also have the permission to offer services related to computer game software, footwear, charity, business management services, software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS). In essence, fans in the Curryverse will have access to a lot of virtual and live services which can be traded with other users in the metaverse.
Curry and the crypto world
The NBA star has been involved in the crypto space since 2021 where he purchased a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT for $206,000. Earlier this year, LinksDAO, a DAO that’s investing in golf by using NFTs, and other blockchain-based assets, announced the investment made by Curry.
