Mastercard Files 15 Trademark Applications for a Wide Range of Metaverse and NFT Services – Last week, payment giant Mastercard submitted 15 trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) covering a wide range of non-fungible tokens and metaverse-related products and services.

The trademark applications are for Mastercard, Priceless, and Mastercard’s circular logo, according to Mike Kondoudis, a USPTO-licensed trademark attorney. Priceless is a Mastercard program that offers everyday discounts to cardholders.

The trademark applications reveal Mastercard’s intentions for a variety of NFT projects, including NFT-authenticated downloadable music files, digital commodities marketplaces, and NFT-backed media.
