Google has filed a trademark application for “Non-Fungible Planet,” although it appears the company’s project has little to do with crypto tokens.
Outlined in the March 21 filing is an educational campaign aimed at “providing information in the areas of environmental protection, conservation, energy efficiency, climate change, reducing carbon footprints, environmental issues and sustainability efforts,” according to the filing.
The project plans to tap “entertainment services, namely, providing non-downloadable playback of curated video playlists via the internet and other communications networks” on the technical side.
Google did not respond to CoinDesk’s request for comment by publication time.
