The All-Time leading three-point shooter in the NBA, Stephen Curry has recently invested "in the evolution of social technology" as he entered the metaverse by registering trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for "CURRYVERSE" on October 26.
Four-time NBA champion Steph Curry, who was also the Finals MVP last season, has kicked off the NBA 2022-23 season with a bang as the legendary point guard is shooting 47 per cent from the field and 44 per cent from beyond the arc.
Attorney Josh Gerben of Gerben Intellectual Property, SC30, Inc. reported that Curry has filed a trademark application for the 'CURRYVERSE' that includes a wide range of virtual assets and services in the metaverse. The application will also provide "online gaming services" in the virtual world allowing players to earn both fungible and nonfungible tokens (NFTs). These tokens can be bought or sold at an "online marketplace."
Additionally, Curry plans to get the trademark approved for sharing images over a mobile network, posting social media updates, viewing basketball stats, viewing photos and videos of basketball games and more. The application also includes personal, virtual, and metaverse appearances by famous celebrities and sportspersons.
Curry is the first athlete to file a trademark application in the metaverse, having already made the most of the 'Chef Curry' in 2019 for computer game software. Apart from the 'CURRYVERSE', the Warriors guard is looking to get five other trademarks approved that include his popular 'Night Night' celebration.
In the NBA 2022-23 regular season, two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry is averaging 33.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 33 minutes per game for the Golden State Warriors after playing six games.
