Mark Zuckerberg’s seemingly growing his tech empire with his sights now set on new crypto-related endeavors.

Formerly known as Facebook, Meta has now filed 8 total trademark applications on Friday which will ensure its logo will cover a huge range of digital purposes, including but not limited to cryptocurrency tokens, wallets, and exchanges.

Of the 8 trademark filings, 6 of them will refer explicitly to cryptocurrency and blockchain-based technology. These filings can be viewed by accessing the Patent and Trademark Office website and searching the serial numbers.

These filings have made news a mere few months after Meta’s exit from Diem, formerly known as libra.

Recently, Meta also announced that it was on the lookout to integrate NFTs on Instagram, which is by far one of its most popular apps. Zuckerberg talked about his vision for Instagram users to be able to mint their digital avatar’s clothing as NFTs at the SXSW Conference.

Since NFTs act as unique tokens on a blockchain such as Ethereum, signifying ownership, they would definitely mean they fit the bill to be included under Meta’s broad filings that cover any “crypto tokens.”

Now, this would enable Instagram and Facebook to both add an NFT profile picture feature, in the same vein as Twitter.
