Exchange big Coinbase is seeking a trademark for “BUIDL,” a preferred phrase applied by some segments of the cryptocurrency community, general public information demonstrate.
According to an Oct. 2 submitting with the United States Patent and Trademark Business office (USPTO), the San Francisco–based tech unicorn would like “BUIDL” to come to be a single of the company’s shielded brand names.
“Now’s the time to BUIDL, not HODL,” a rallying cry in the blockchain developer community initially mentioned on CoinDesk in 2015, is meant to advise that setting up genuine-world use circumstances is just as important as the hoarding of crypto belongings.
According to the USPTO web page, the software will be assigned to an inspecting lawyer about 3 months after the submitting day. A request for remark from Coinbase was not returned as of press time.
“HODL,” the significantly a lot more preferred crypto-associated misspelling, has also been submitted to the USPTO for trademark safety – but by yet another business. An software this 12 months from Texas-based Flashratings, Inc. seems to have been suspended late past thirty day period.
