NFT and Metaverse Move from Famous Beverage Company!
After the NFTs exploded in 2021, many famous companies and giant brands are increasingly turning to this sector. Redbull adds a new one to these developments by entering the NFT and Metaverse universe. This Austrian beverage giant states that they aim to operate in the metaverse and offer NFTs. In addition, Redbull applied for patent registration for these projects on March 3 and took the first steps.
Redbull's trademark attorney, Michael Kondoudis, announced today that the company will be in the NFT, digital world and crypto world. In addition, Kondoudis reported that with these developments, the company will keep up with financial changes and Redbull, which is intertwined with sports, will be in these worlds with sports equipment and beverages. Redbull obtained the patent registration number 97293326 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office and took its first step.
Kondoudis states that companies that are no longer involved in the technology sector are also following the developments and that most companies are ready for the new world order that has turned into a digital universe. Kondoudis continues:
"The metaverse is a real universe and companies need to be open to this change. What companies need to do is take the time to understand the metaverse, not debate whether it should really be metaverse or not."
