Buck Rogers to Enter the Metaverse and Embrace NFTs
The U.S. science fiction television series Buck Rogers has filed a trademark application to enter the metaverse and the non-fungible token (NFT) space.
This new step will allow the franchise to explore the space and create opportunities for fans to connect with the world in an innovative way.
A new application submitted to the USPTO on August 12 reveals that the company plans to offer:
- NFTs that can feature all sorts of content, from text to audio to visuals.
- Digital and virtual trading exchange services
- Cryptocurrency trading with financial exchange
- provide entertainment news, information and services related to computer software, virtual worlds, the metaverse, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), NFTs, and more.
Recently, trademark attorney Michael Kondoudis announced the news via Twitter.
More and more companies are filing for metaverse and NFT-related trademarks every day. They don't want to be left behind in this rapidly-growing industry, and they see this as an opportunity to gain a new market share by providing innovative experiences.
Iconic Buck Rogers Will Entertain in the metaverse too
Buck Rogers, the 1930s hero will be entering the digital frontier. Buck Rogers is credited for being one of the first to embrace non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and truly push interoperability. His adventures have inspired many games, tv shows and movies. The iconic comic hero will be appearing in a virtual adventure in Second Life and will be offering his own tokenized asset in the Metaverse. The partnership between the Metaverse and Buck Rogers will offer users an exciting array of options, including a 3D asset creation competition.
As the blockchain space continues to grow, the Metaverse will continue to inspire new advancements. Trademark applications that companies are using – or planning to use – on virtual goods and/or non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) have been rising in the world. These applications demonstrate a growing interest in developing new NFTs as well as enthusiasm for blockchain-based virtual goods. The NFT market is poised to grow. It is estimated that blockchain-based virtual goods trading will reach $7.85 billion by 2022.
