Rap star Ye, formerly referred to as Kanye, has filed several trademark applications that demonstrate the music performer may be getting ready to mint their own non-fungible tokens (NFTs), alongside an array of physical products.
Based on trademark attorney Josh Gerben, Ye has filed 17 new trademark applications round his YEEZUS name, which indicate the rapper aims “to produce YEEZUS-branded theme parks, NFT’s, toys and much more.”
More particularly, he’s filed trademark applications for “blockchain-based non-fungible assets,” “currencies and tokens,” and “online store services featuring … digital art.”
One filing even notes the opportunity of “providing a web-based industry for buyers of crypto and/digital collectibles, currencies, tokens, and assets.”
The applications likewise incorporate an array of other products, including theme parks, physical an internet-based stores, toys, games, sporting equipment, campaign buttons, clothing, bags, household products, and cosmetics.
The intention to produce NFTs shows a u-submit the rapper’s anti-NFT stance. Just captured, Ye stated to his 10.5m Instagram supporters he will not do NFTs (in those days, a minimum of).
“Do not ask me to perform a fucking NFT,” he stated, adding, “Ask me later.”
Within the caption from the publish, the music performer stated, “For The Time Being I Am Not With That WAVE I MAKE MUSIC And Merchandise Within The Real Life.” This might explain the filing application for parks, amusement products, and stores. West has formerly expressed curiosity about creating their own theme parks.
“What I wish to do publish-Grammys is I wish to focus on metropolitan areas, I wish to focus on theme parks, I wish to change entertainment encounters,” he apparently stated. “[It’s] something similar to if McQueen or Tarsem [Singh] ended up being to satisfy the entertainment worth of a Cirque du Soleil or perhaps a Wally Disney.”
