Polkadot, which describes itself as a “layer 0 blockchain,” has filed a trademark registration for what appears to be a blockchain-based messaging application, according to a recent filing.
The phrase “Polkadot Converse” has been trademarked, with additional information on the app being added in the “good and services” section of the filing.
The trademark covers: “Software for social networking; software for creating, managing, and interacting with an online community; software for creating, software for sending and receiving electronic messages, graphics, images, audio content.”
Despite several attempts from the likes of Steemit, Tether’s Keet and most recently Nostr, social media has never hit it off within the web3 industry.
Polkadot (DOT) remains the 11th largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of around $7.5 billion, according to CoinDesk veri.
A foray into social media and instant messaging would a change in focus from Polkadot, which has previously concentrated efforts on its parachain technology and rapid transaction speeds.
