Japanese tech giant Fujitsu has filed a trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that covers several cryptocurrency services. The application specifically mentions “financial management of crypto assets,” “financial exchange of crypto assets,” and “financial broker services for cryptocurrency trading.”

Fujitsu’s Crypto Trademark Application

Fujitsu, one of the world’s largest IT service providers, filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) last week for several cryptocurrency products and services. Fujitsu is Japan’s largest IT service provider.

Mike Kondoudis, a USPTO-licensed trademark attorney, tweeted Tuesday:

Is Fujitsu moving into banking, finance & crypto? The international tech co has filed a trademark application for exchanging money, securities trading, insurance brokerage, tax planning, [and] cryptocurrency trading.

Fujitsu’s application (serial number 97842910) filed with the USPTO last Thursday describes numerous goods and services, including the “financial management of crypto assets,” “financial exchange of crypto assets,” and “financial broker services for cryptocurrency trading.”

On Feb. 6, the multinational technology company announced the launch of the “Fujitsu Web3 Acceleration Platform,” which offers “a developmental environment as well as various service APIs based on blockchain and high-performance computing technologies,” the company detailed.

Companies are increasingly filing trademark applications that cover a wide range of crypto products and services, as well as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse, including Fidelity Investments, HSBC, Visa, Paypal, Western Union, Formula One, Ford, Ebay, and Facebook owner Meta.
