While SEGA is taking precautions in their entry into the NFT world, they have made it all clear that it is just a matter of time.
The Japanese video game company announced plans to sell NFTs in summer last year, but those plans never materialized.
The leadership at the company decided to wait and do it right, especially when fans saw it as just another ‘money grab’ opportunity.
“In terms of NFT, we would like to try out various experiments, and we have already started many different studies and considerations, but nothing is decided at this point regarding,” Sega CEO Haruki Satomi said.
“We need to carefully assess many things such as how we can mitigate the negative elements, how much we can introduce this within the Japanese regulation, what will be accepted and what will not be by the users.”
There is now clear indication that Sega will be getting into NFTs in a big way. According to reporting by VGC, the company filed a patent in late 2021 with the Japanese Patent Office, for ‘SEGA NFT’, complete with the above logo.
Another patent for ‘SEGA Classics NFT Collection’ was also filed.
It will be interesting to watch how the beloved video game maker utilizes these patents.
