National Basketball League (NBA) star Stephen Curry is gearing up to introduce his own version of the Metaverse.
On Oct. 26, he filed a “Curryverse” trademark application, according to which he wants to provide “online gaming services in the nature of virtual worlds,” where players will be able to earn both fungible and nonfungible tokens (NFTs), which will be able to be bought or sold at an “online marketplace.”

The application covers a wide array of products, including virtual clothing and goods, business management and investment services, charitable fundraising services, and software as a service (SaaS) featuring software platforms for designing, promoting, selling and exchanging NFTs, among others. 

It must now be approved by U.S. authorities in order for Curry to receive exclusive rights for “entertainment services, namely, personal and virtual and metaversal appearances.”

Curry, who has millions of followers on different social media sites, has a history of Web-3 related activities. In August 2021, he purchased a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT worth $206,000.  

There is also a Curry-dedicated 2974 Collection, which commemorates the new all-time 3-point record achieved by him. 

"There is one NFT for each 3-pointer, from his first to the record-setter. Each NFT will highlight a specific 3-pointer that led up to the record, including the date, location, Stephen's digital signature and any special moment associated with it. Each sketch is filled in with the number 2974 throughout Stephen's entire body," the collection promises.

Gagarin News has been extensively covering the NFT domain.

Previously, we reported that American coffee company Starbucks is launching an NFT-enabled customer rewards system and shed light on the Crypto Bull’s Society that offers its participants to either be bulls or bears, depending on their market sentiment.
