Meta, the world’s largest social media platform, has registered a trademark with the Brazilian government to design, develop and supply hardware and software for various bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrencies related services.

Meta recently rebranded it from Facebook to better adapt to developments in the Metaverse, despite the regulatory hurdles it has faced during its many previous attempts to enter the cryptosphere.

To expedite this work, Meta has registered a trademark with the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) for cryptocurrency products and services related to trading, wallets and exchange platforms.
