Gerben stated that it “appears to be a filing for a brand of a cryptocurrency” which will be “providing a digital currency or digital token for use by members of an online community”.
In the trademark, Nike states that it is interested in developing:
“Downloadable mobile applications for providing access to crypto-collectibles, crypto-art and application tokens…downloadable software and mobile applications using artificial intelligence.”
Any services or goods such as apps or software applications related to the filing would support the idea of a Nike cryptocurrency, suggests Gerben. It is rumored that Nike could potentially use a non-fungible token design to track the supply chain of their popular shoes.
