The United States Air Force has filed a trademark application to create its own metaverse initiative called Spaceverse for a virtual military training environment. According to an application submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the US Department of the Air Force trademarked the word "SpaceVerse," defined as “a secure digital metaverse that converges terrestrial and space physical and digital realities and provides synthetic and simulated extended-reality (XR) training, testing and operations environments.” https://twitter.com/KondoudisLaw/status/1516385457537437696 It remains unclear whether the Spaceverse would be connected to the United States Space Force (USSF), a space service branch of the U.S. Armed Forces which organize, train, and equip space forces in order to protect U.S. and allied interests in space. Metaverse and NFT-related trademark filings tripled in 2020 but exploded to 421 times that number in 2021, with the trend accelerating, even more, this year. Just recently, Mastercard submitted about 15 applications covering its name, logo, and “Priceless” slogan. Similarly, Anheuser-Busch has done the same for its brands, along with related trademarks like “Budverse.”
