商標登録insideNews: Facebook acquired a trademark from a little-known tax company for its secret crypto project – The Block

United States Patent and Trademark Office shows Facebook recently acquired the trademark ‘Libra.’ The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the code word for Facebook’s stablecoin project is Libra. Thursday evening, The Wall Street Journal dropped a bombshell report about the social media company’s efforts in blockchain, specifically that it is working on a building a full payments network and is in discussions with payment networks Visa and Mastercard to support it. At the center of its efforts is a stable coin, dubbed Libra, according to the report. A source familiar with the matter confirmed to The Block that Facebook’s crypto project’s code and product name is Libra, and that the firm is recruiting financial firms to support the effort. It appears there’s hard evidence to suggest Facebook has acquired the trademark for the name ‘Libra’ for the project, as per a document from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The previous trademark holder is a cryptocurrency tax company that recently changed its name to Lukka.
