JPMorgan officially registers a cryptocurrency wallet trademark

American banking giant JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM) continues to advance in the cryptocurrency sector, with the lender showing its intent to explore different products through trademark filings. 

In this line, the institution has registered a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for ‘J.P. MORGAN WALLET,’ seeking to offer a crypto wallet for digital currency exchange and transfer. The trademark was granted by USPTO on November 15. 

The development was confirmed by non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and metaverse licensed trademark attorney Michael Kondoudis in a tweet on November 21.

According to Kondoudis, the wallet trademark for assets like Bitcoin (BTC) also covers crypto payment processing, virtual checking accounts, and other financial services, including the management of counterparty funds for electronic transfer. 

JPMorgan blockchain inroads 

It is worth noting that the bank has, in the past, continued to explore blockchain technology and how to incorporate it into its services. Recently, the lender, alongside two other banks, planned to participate in a project from the Monetary Authority of Singapore seeking to pilot use cases of digital assets and decentralized finance (DeFi).

At the same time, JPMorgan has increasingly focused on monitoring developments in the metaverse space as the bank seeks to upgrade and modernize its business operation. Part of the development has seen the bank acquire California payment startup firm Renovite Technologies aiming to hasten the delivery of its cloud payment offerings. 

Overall, the number of traditional finance firms warming up to the crypto space has increased in recent months despite the prevailing bear market. For instance, payment giant Visa (NYSE: V)  filed for a crypto wallet trademark in October alongside a patent to turn physical fiat currency into a digitized version.

Other firms to follow suit include American Express (NYSE: AXP) and the New York Stock Exchange as they seek to improve their business alongside reaching out to a new customer base.
