Bitcoin Trademark Makes It Onto Brazilian Chocolate, Permission Has Since Been Granted
According to Confectionery News, Brazilian sweets shop, Roma, has been granted the permission to use Bitcoin’s renowned trademark (“B”) onto their supposed chocolate coin. The permission was granted by Brazil’s Ministry of Economy, under, “The National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI). (Confectionerynews)
Based on the claims made, this isn’t the first chocolate coin of its kind, as Roma has previously launched “Lost Treasure” and “1 Real” milk chocolate coins. As for when the Bitcoin-styled chocolate coins will make its way, it has yet to be confirmed. The finest details are allegedly ready, all that’s left to do is get the production process started.
Roma can definitely consider the acceptance as a milestone, given that under INPI, the name “Bitcoin” is most often not permitted as a trademark on a product. Now it seems like Roma has made its way to the Intellectual Property Journal since April 23, 2019.
This is definitely a great way to bring awareness of the existence of Bitcoin, considering the fact that adoption still seems to be a concern. On the bright side, we’ve come a long way since Bitcoin’s first ever introduction to the world, so it won’t be long before it is integrated within society! In the meantime, Bitcoin fanatics will have to wait before satisfying their sweet tooth!
