Marvel Hesitant Towards The Approval Of Wacoinda Trademark
August 14, 2018 4:11 pm
A company called Wilsondom LLC has come up with a plan to launch financial and educational services around cryptocurrencies according to legal information website Justia. When the Wacoinda trademark is accepted, it will be utilized for financial education and economic empowerment initiatives intended for the African-American community.
However, Marvel is not yet sure about opposing the use of the name of the fictional nation of Wakanda from the Black Panther film. The subsidiary of the comic book, Marvel Characters, filed for extensions with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to get more time before determining whether it will oppose the Wakanda Wine Fest and Wacoinda trademark submissions.
The Wacoinda trademark was filed in February, but Marvel Characters’ appeal for an extension arrived just last week, public documents show. The company now has until November 14 to decide if it yearns to oppose the trademark. The extension does not inevitably mean that Marvel will oppose the trademark, however.
Meanwhile, in June, African singer, Akon revealed plans to introduce a new cryptocurrency Akoin and an idea to build a “real-life Wakanda.” As reported previously, the city is already being built on a 2,000-acre area of land gifted to the singer by the president of Senegal, Macky Sall.
