The BBC has submitted a trademark application for the Doctor Who logo, indicating its intention to enter the NFT and Web3 space. This move could pave the way for the introduction of digital collectibles, as well as a potential entry into the metaverse. Fans of the popular sci-fi series can look forward to the possibilities of Doctor Who NFTs and metaverse.
The popular British Sci-fi TV series which first aired in 1963 follows the journeys of an alien called the Doctor, who travels through time and space in a time machine called the TARDIS. The show has gained a devoted global following ever since it premiered and has become a cultural phenomenon.
Leveraging Web3 and NFTs
And although the BBC is yet to make any official statements on its Web3 developments, the trademark application is a move that should keep fans excited for the time being. Once the BBC puts everything into place, fans could soon be able to own a piece of the Doctor Who series through digital collectibles or NFTs.
The metaverse is a virtual space that isn’t as talked about as it once was, which some believe is due to the rise of AI. However, the Web3 space is ever-growing and companies are continuously looking for ways to leverage these spaces while they’re still in their nascency.
In late March, Sony also revealed a new NFT-related patent which shows the tech giant’s intentions to create a standardised digital infrastructure to allow gamers to own and transfer digital NFT assets across various video game platforms.
