Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 2, Sep 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
In our Web3 news this week, I wanted to highlight two news items to you. One is the entry of Ford Motor company into the Web3 space. Ford Motor company seems to be filing multiple trademark applications related to virtual cars, virtual vans, online stores for NFTs and various other things. The way they are looking at Metaverse and NFTs space is very interesting. The other news is also related to trademark applications. The same attorney who highlighted Ford’s entry also says that there are more trademark applications related to crypto and NFT in 2022 than it was in 2021. 2022, September already saw more than 5000applications, whereas 2021, the entire year, we only had 2000 applications. So, my question is, as a nonprofit church or ministry, whatever you are trying to do in the crypto and NFT space, should you be thinking of trademark applications related to that? I don’t know. Something for you to think about.
