Nissan would not be the first top multinational firm to file trademark applications revealing plans to delve into the cryptocurrency industry. The Crypto Basic recently reported Visa’s trademark applications, as the payment service disclosed plans to provide crypto-focused services.
Nissan’s recent NFT-focused trademark applications come barely 7 months after the leading Japanese automobile manufacturer, in tandem with Toyota, revealed plans to jump on the moving Metaverse train.
While Toyota indicated a decision to introduce a virtual working environment for its staffers, Nissan disclosed that it would be leveraging Virtual Reality (VR) tech to provide its customers with virtual rooms. These developments would be powered by video game developing firm VRChat.
Last week, Animoca Brands announced a partnership between its Australia-based video game developing subsidiary Grease Monkey Games, and Nissan. The partnership will see Nissan present its first-ever utility NFTs.
