Legendary musician Snoop Dogg extended his strides into the metaverse and non-fungible tokens worlds, applying for trademarks for different products. Calvin Broadus, whose stage name is Snoop Dogg, filed for UNCLE SNOOP’S and UNCLE SNOOP with the USPTO (the United States Patent & Trademark Office) on 14 June.
Michel Kondoudis, a licensed trademark attorney, revealed the application via a 20 June tweet. Kondoudis highlighted the application covers aspects like footwear, headwear, clothing, NFTs marketplaces, digital collectible, smoking goods, and virtual cannabis.
Moreover, approving the application will allow the singer to offer energy drinks NFT, pre-rolled cigarettes, and smoking articles.
Snoop’s Increasing NFT Involvement
Snoop Dogg is one of the celebrities that have embraced the metaverse and NFTs since their emergence, collaborating with various creators. For example, the musician owns BAYC NFTs and worked with projects such as Sandbox based on ETH & Cardano’s Clay Nation.
Meanwhile, non-fungible tokens offer artists various ways to earn revenue apart from the conservative streaming proceeds. Moreover, artists can control pricing with blockchain technology and earn royalties as they connect with their fan base.
Besides the singer, the metaverse world has seen interest from renowned sports personalities. Earlier Finbold reports revealed the NBA star Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets jumped into the non-fungible token world.
Durant made around 26 metaverse and NFT applications, seeking to allow his fans to buy unique and downloadable NFTs, crypto-collectables, and NFT-backed media, and trade them on crypto and NFT markets.
Despite personalities, top global brands show their interest, leveraging the non-fungible token space to connect with fans. For example, the EPL (English Premier League), one of the globe’s most-followed sports leagues, has an unresolved application to provide digital trading cards, digital collectibles, and digital tokens.
On the other side, the crypto world sees impressive upswings following free falls that dumped the global cryptocurrency market value well beneath the $1T mark.
While publishing this post, the cumulative value of all cryptocurrencies stood at $903.26 billion, a 7.11% surge within the past day. Also, BTC reclaimed the crucial $20K, trading near $20,512 at this publication. Bitcoin gained 3.46% within the past day.
