Japanese tech giant Fujitsu has filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office, covering multiple cryptocurrency services. The motion specifically mentions “financial management of crypto assets,” “financial exchange of crypto assets,” and “financial brokerage services for cryptocurrency trading.”
Crypto trademark filing by Fujitsu
Fujitsu, one of the world’s largest IT service providers, filed a trademark application for several cryptocurrency products and services with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) last week. Fujitsu is Japan’s largest IT service provider.
Mike Kondoudis, a USPTO-licensed trademark attorney, tweeted Tuesday:
Is Fujitsu entering the banking, finance & crypto sector? International Tech Co has registered a trademark for currency exchange, securities trading, insurance broking, tax planning, [and] cryptocurrency trading.
Fujitsu’s application (serial number 97842910), filed with the USPTO last Thursday, describes numerous goods and services, including “financial management of crypto assets,” “financial exchange of crypto assets,” and “financial brokerage services for cryptocurrency trading.”
On Feb. 6, the multinational technology company announced the launch of the “Fujitsu Web3 Acceleration Platform,” which provides “a development environment and various service APIs based on blockchain and high-performance computing technologies,” according to the company.
Increasingly, companies are filing trademark applications covering a wide range of crypto products and services, as well as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse, including Fidelity Investments, HSBC, Visa, Paypal, Western Union, Formula One, Ford, Ebay, and Facebook owner meta.
