Once-Resistant Kanye West Files NFT Trademark Applications.#kaynewest #nfteducation #nft
Kanye West could be preparing to mint his own non-fungible tokens (NFTs), according to 17 new trademark applications filed around the rapper’s Yeezus alter ego. KANYE WEST FILES NFT TRADEMARKThe move suggests the popular rapper/designer may have softened his anti-NFT stance since publicly criticizing digital collectibles earlier this year.

West, who legally changed his name to “Ye,” filed trademark applications for “blockchain-based non-fungible assets,” “currencies and tokens” and “online retail store services featuring … digital art” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on May 27. The filings also suggest West might launch Yeezus-branded amusement parks.
The filing comes just months after West announced his disinterest in NFT projects in a handwritten letter posted to his Instagram on Feb. 1, a post he has since deleted, that clarified that the rapper’s focus was on “building real products in the real world.”
