The Maker Foundation tried to register the "DEFI" trademark but ended in failure

According to recent media reports, DeFi ecosystem manufacturers are trying to register trademarks for "DeFi." The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) stated that the Maker Foundation registered a trademark application for DEFI last January. As a proverb of “decentralized finance”, the trademark was not approved and the maker no longer sought an application. This document defines DEFI as “online money market services, ie providing digital asset trading markets”.
