The beginning of 2019 saw a renewed interest in registering crypto-related trademarks in the USA, as reported by the USPTO database.
Some of these crypto trademarks are linked to big names, while others have been submitted by small companies.
Among large companies, this wave began with Samsung registering its own trademark for smartphone crypto wallets in December, and we have already written about Cryptokicks, Nike’s registered trademark that could lead to both an e-commerce portal and other services related to virtual currencies.
Other companies such as Amazon, Mastercard and Walmart have registered trademarks globally for services whose development is still in progress and whose purpose has not yet been disclosed.
However, the majority of the recordings come from small companies or even from newcomers who want to enter the market, and they have really let their imagination run wild here.
They range from strictly technical services such as “Vantage Crypto”, which aims to work on a decentralised SAAS, “Crypto Hedge Fund Alert”, a virtual currency hedge fund information service and “In Crypto We Trust“, a virtual currency education service, up to “The Prince of Crypto“, which covers everything from music to clothing.
But there’s also room for the modest “The Most Trusted name in Crypto Currencies“, which instead covers Bitcoin ATMs.
“Crypto for Idiots” is another trademark registered in the US for an educational podcast. The knowledge sector is also the basis of “Cryptoconomist”, which wants to create basic kits for children to learn about the world of virtual currencies, while “Guns and Bitcoin” wants to offer specific use cases for computers and firearms.
Only with the crypto call you can discover at least 3 dozen registered trademarks in 2019, a number that expands as soon as we retouch the search to include other names. The number is even more impressive when we think that from mid-December until the end of January there were no registrations due to the shutdown of public offices for budgetary reasons.
