Steph Curry’s Metaverse Filing: ‘Curryverse’
On October 26, Steph Curry’s company, SC30, filed for a trademark in order to run a metaverse-based platform called ‘Curryverse’. Simply, if he gets it, this just means he now has the right to create it. If approved, he will get sole rights to entertainment services, namely, personal and virtual and metaversal appearances.
The platform is expected to provide online gaming services in the virtual world, earnable NFTs and virtual clothing and goods. As well as this, charitable fundraising services, and software as a service (SaaS). It should also feature software for the purpose of designing, promoting, selling and exchanging NFTs.
Curry’s Previous Ventures
This isn’t Curry’s first move into NFTs and web3. In August 2021 – he aped into the ‘Bored Ape Yacht Club’ NFT collection for around 55 ETH ($180,000) at the time. At the time, the hype was clear that he entered the community, with everyone getting excited due to his huge audience.
Beyond this, Steph Curry has created two NFT collections. First, in March 2022, he released the ‘2974’ collection to celebrate breaking the all-time three-point record. 100% of the profits from this collection went to charity, which was important to Curry.
The record-breaking 2974th NFT was auctioned and eventually sold for $1,000,000. Additionally, each complete storyboard NFT was auctioned and each sold for $50,000.
Additionally, Under Armour, for who Steph Curry is the face of the company, has sold various NFTs which can be used within the metaverse – and presumably now ‘Curryverse’.
