Snoop Dogg Files New NFT and Metaverse Trademark Applications
American rapper Snoop Dogg continues to make inroads into the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and metaverse realms. He recently registered new NFT and metaverse trademarks.
On June 14th, the rapper from California filed trademark applications for the words "Uncle Snoop" and "Uncle Snoop's." Snoop Dogg is alleged to be considering opening a shop in the metaverse to offer a variety of goods, including virtual cannabis and smoking products, as well as clothing, headwear, and footwear.
According to the trademark applications, Snoop Dogg may intend to sell those products as non-fungible tokens. While you can't get "high" in the metaverse, as trademark attorney Mike Kondoudis points out, individuals may still buy the products, comparable to the skins in the famous video game Fortnite.
In an interview with Billboard, Kondoudis stated that it would not surprise him if Snoop Dogg was already in the process of opening such a business because filing trademark applications requires a major commitment of time and money.
Those hoping for more information, on the other hand, will have to wait. Even the rapper has not publicly commented on the trademarks, which typically take 12 to 18 months to be approved by the United States Patent & Trademark Office.
Snoop Dogg is one of the celebrities that has supported NFTs for a while, partnering with many NFT creators and projects. For example, the rapper owns Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs and has partnered with projects like The Sandbox on Ethereum and many other initiatives.
Snoop Dogg's trademark filings are obviously intriguing, but only time will tell what ideas emerge as a result of them. For the time being, though, it is clear that the rapper is deeply engaged in Web3, NFTs, and the metaverse.
