The United States Air Force is looking at entering the metaverse, CoinGeek reported Friday (April 22).

According to the report, the Air Force is looking at leveraging the capabilities of the metaverse to help the military, having filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to get the word “SpaceVerse” trademarked.

According to the application, SpaceVerse refers to “a secure digital metaverse that converges terrestrial and space physical and digital realities and provides synthetic and simulated extended-reality (XR) training, testing and operations environments.”

The report said the trademark application is an expansion of the potential use cases of the metaverse. While there haven’t been any other military applications yet, the report noted that other departments have gone for blockchain reports before, including the U.S. Navy with its plan to make a blockchain project to bolster medical supply lines.

The metaverse has been more prominent lately, especially after Facebook changed its name to Meta in October, aiming to capitalize on the virtual world in question. Numerous companies have already begun entering the metaverse, as well.

PYMNTS wrote that Limitless, which makes the Next Earth metaverse platform, has begun offering what it calls a Metaverse-as-a-Service solution. The company also aims to roll out a $60 million venture fund to further build out the virtual world.

Limitless made its metaverse using 5 trillion tiles and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), letting users own parts of the world. Next Earth reportedly has more than 300,000 virtual landowners on its platform, having generated over $10 million in revenue since its rollout last year.

“I think that most metaverse [projects] are just trying to recreate ‘Second Life,’” Limitless co-CEO David Taylor told CoinDesk in an interview. “Instead of doing that, we’re going to create a middleware layer for the metaverse. Through our API connections, any business small or large can connect to Next Earth.”
