McDonald’s Filed 10 Trademark Applications for the Metaverse

The iconic fast-food restaurant chain McDonald’s wants to enter the metaverse. According to trademark lawyer Josh Gerben, the company has filed ten trademark applications for the virtual space. 

"McDonald's is headed to the metaverse. The company has filed 10 (TEN!) trademark applications indicating it plans to offer "a virtual restaurant featuring actual and virtual goods" and "operating a virtual restaurant featuring home delivery."

The application, submitted on February 4, pointed to plans for a “virtual restaurant, offering real and virtual goods.” McDonald’s would also like to run a ‘virtual restaurant with home delivery.’ Additionally, the restaurant will provide ‘downloadable media files,’ such as works of art, audio files, video files, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The fast-food chain would also like to include its McCafe chain in its metaverse plans. The brand would offer entertainment services such as ‘real and virtual online concerts and other virtual events.’

If these plans see the light of day, the fast-food chain will compete with other virtual concert organizers. Such concerts are becoming more and more attractive because they remove geographical barriers that prevent fans and artists from interacting. They would also reduce the cost of touring and even the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus.

The McDonald’s trademark filing came a day after a similar application was filed by bakery and café chain Panera Bread. It intends to provide a virtual chain of restaurants and cafes known as PANERAVERSE. Like Mcdonald's, Panera Bread will offer downloadable NFT content, virtual food and drinks, and virtual meeting spaces.

Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

The Ethereum price chart shows us that ETH has registered a fairly significant drop during the current session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ETH slip below the $3100 level.
