Facebook rebranded itself to Meta last year to reflect its focus on the metaverse

  • Meta may bring blockchain-based computer and e-commerce services
  • Meta plans to play cupid for crypto investors with dating app
  • VR-supporting entertainment and wearables also on Meta’s plan

Meta, formerly Facebook, is planning to escalate its position in the Web 3 sector. The social networking giant has filed for eight trademark applications to operate Web 3 services, including a dating app, especially designed for crypto investors. The move comes in favour of Meta's efforts to strengthen its position in the crypto and metaverse spheres. Blockchain-based Web 3, that is the next phase of Internet as we know today, will have cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as integral elements, that will together enhance the metaverse sector.

Meta is looking to bring in new products and services, built on the blockchain technology to align them with the Web 3 industry.

Its future plans include the launch of new social networking platforms, computer software, e-commerce service, telecom services for digital asset holders, and metaverse-focussed advertising platform, CoinTelegraph reported.

In addition, Virtual Reality (VR)-supporting entertainment and digital publishing services along with a line-up of VR wearables are also on Meta's radar.

Meta is considering to create a software for e-wallets as well. The company has not, however, officially announced any details about its trademark filings. It could be months before Meta gets its approvals.

The average time for the US Patent and Trademark Office to review an application is about nine-and-a-half months, as per a report by CoinTelegraph.

Last week, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that Instagram will soon get NFT-related features.

Without getting into elaborate details, the tech mogul said that Instagram users will get to mint their own NFTs on the app "hopefully" in the months to come.

Meanwhile, in recent days several other brands have also filed for trademarks around the Web 3 space in the US. These include the American Express, Slim Jim, and New York Stock Exchange
