Chemical Giant BASF Files NFT Patent

In an April 18 blog post, Mike Kondoudis, an accredited intellectual property attorney, confirmed that the chemical company filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office related to NFTs on April 13, 2023.

BASF, an acronym for its original name Badische Anilin und Sodafabrik, is a multinational company and the largest chemical producer in the world based in German. BASF is renowned for producing various chemicals, such as solvents, amines, resins, glues, electronic-grade chemicals, industrial gases, basic petrochemicals, and inorganic chemicals.

According to data submitted, the German chemical firm claimed plans to offer downloadable digital files authenticated by non-fungible tokens. The trademark application coincides with a recent interest spike in NFTs, unique digital assets validated using blockchain technology.

The NFT Market Health

BASF’s decision to file a trademark application suggests that the non-fungible token market has begun surging after suffering a brutal downturn in the past several months.

In the past 24 hours, Wrapped CryptoPunks has recorded a sales volume of 3,416 ETH, leading the top-selling NFT lists in daily trading volume. The NFT collection has a market capitalization of $114 million and a floor price of $146,150.
