UFC launches its cryptocurrency and NFT tokens

Soon, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (Mixed Martial Arts Championship or UFC) could be another league in which the sale of non-fungible tokens (NFT) will beginand the launch of a new cryptocurrency will take place. Zuffa, the parent company of the mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, has filed several new trademark filings, signaling its intention to follow this trend.

Recently founder of the law firm GerbenIntellectual Property Josh Gerben tweeted that the UFC has filed a number of applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office. It follows from the documents that the league plans to deploy an application that allows users to manage cryptocurrencies under the UFC and NFT brands.

This development can provide seriousa source of income for the UFC, similar to how other sports leagues in North America have used NFT technology. These include the National Basketball Association (NBA), which offers digital collectibles under the NBA Top Shot brand. According to the league, as of April 23, the market has attracted 460,000 collectors (up 100 times since the beginning of the year), who have made more than 4 million transactions.

Major League Baseball (MLB) also uses thisan innovation as Topps released its NFT Collectibles earlier this month, the company's flagship annual collection of baseball cards.

According to some experts, the UFC decision couldbe associated with an initial public offering (IPO) of the league owner of the entertainment group Endeavor. During their debut on the New York Stock Exchange on April 29, the group's shares rose 12%, then a correction began. Having sold about 21.3 million shares at $ 24 each, Endeavor raised about $ 511.2 million for a total value of $ 10.8 billion.
