Fujitsu interested in crypto trading services, trademark application reveals

Japanese tech giant Fujitsu filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), revealing its intent to offer brokerage services for cryptocurrency trading, among other crypto and non-crypto financial facilities.

Fujitsu’s trademark application aims to register a new mark which “consists of the stylized word FUJITSU with a sideways s-shaped swirl over the J and I,” according to the official document filed on March 16. The branding is dedicated to offering financial services, including accepting deposits, financing loans, financial management and the exchange of crypto assets.

Fujitsu’s growing interest in Web3 became evident when it launched a Web3 acceleration platform for startups and partner companies in February. The platform aims to support the creation of a diverse ecosystem of Web3 applications across a range of use cases, such as digital content rights management, business transactions, contracts and processes.

At the beginning of 2023, financial regulators in Japan urged global regulators to introduce stricter banking rules for the crypto sector.

Deputy director general of the Financial Services Agency’s Strategy Development and Management Bureau, Mamoru Yanase, acknowledged that the problem wasn’t with crypto. “What’s brought about the latest scandal isn’t crypto technology itself,” he said, adding that the blame lay with “loose governance, lax internal controls, and the absence of regulation and supervision.”
