“These filings reflect the company’s strategy for moving into the metaverse. Meta clearly has significant plans for the virtual economy that will drive it. Meta’s latest trademark filings will surely be of interest to participants in the financial sector and beyond.”

Meta’s filings come on the heels of billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg announcing that the company’s popular photo-based social media platform Instagram will soon begin supporting NFTs.
