Fujitsu, the Japanese tech giant, has shown interest in providing financial services related to cryptocurrency trading as indicated in a trademark application filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Along with other non-crypto financial facilities, Fujitsu’s application aims to register a new brand of financial services. The new mark includes the stylized word “FUJITSU” with an “s-shaped swirl” over the J and I, indicating brokerage services for crypto trading, accepting deposits, financing loans, financial management, and exchanging crypto assets.
Fujitsu’s interest in Web3 technology became evident in February when it launched a Web3 acceleration platform for startups and partner companies. The platform aims to promote the development of a diverse ecosystem of Web3 applications that cater to various use cases, such as digital content rights management, business transactions, contracts, and processes.
Cryptocurrency trading is a rapidly growing industry, with several established financial institutions showing interest in offering services related to digital assets. Fujitsu’s move to file a trademark application indicates its intention to expand its offerings and gain a foothold in the market. The growing demand for cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, and the increasing adoption of blockchain technology have led to a surge in interest from financial institutions looking to capitalize on the trend.
