YouTuber Logan Paul files paperwork to launch its own NFT marketplace

YouTuber Logan Paul is launching his own non-fungible tokens (NFT) marketplace.


The YouTuber-turned-boxer will be given trademarks for "Originals by Logan Paul" and "Originals DAO," alluding to a blockchain-based institution known as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization in which members agree to a hardcoded set of rules, according to early February filings.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer will be given trademarks for "Originals by Logan Paul" and "Originals DAO," alluding to a blockchain-based institution known as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization in which members agree to a hardcoded set of rules, according to early February filings.


In other words, it will be a group of NFT dudes led by one of the most cringiest persons on the planet, according to the internet community.


Paul is far from the only celebrity to file for NFT-related trademarks, according to CoinDesk. Last Monday, the late basketball player Kobe Bryant's estate filed for three trademarks.


Paul has earned a reputation as the internet's class clown, making everything from highly racist remarks about Asian people to insulting individuals who have committed suicide.


He's also tried his hand at entrepreneurship, selling $3 million worth of merchandise from his Maverick apparel line in only three days and subsequently promoting "a terrific hydration drink that can fuel any lifestyle."


Paul began selling his own NFT collection after becoming interested in NFTs last year, and the first day they went live, he made $3.5 million in crypto.


So it only makes sense for him to launch his own NFT marketplace, right?

Following the February 4 trademark registrations, Paul has yet to disclose any plans to launch his own NFT marketplace.
