The process was completed by Ignacio Rubio Menéndez, a compliance expert and lawyer specializing in business law.
Meanwhile, Menéndez’s client is choosing to remain anonymous for now.
The person says:
“I now have the logo and the word ‘bitcoin’ registered at the national level in the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. Anyone can access the records, as they are published daily and for all audiences.”
On taking the initiatve, he said:
“I am a bitcoin salesman, I have a buying and selling office, and the idea is to protect bitcoin, at least in Spain. So I stand up for the brand and take responsibility that any new user can feel 100% safe working with me and away from the scams that name and use ‘bitcoin.’”
The filing addresses the logo containing the white letter “B” within an orange circle, which would be the official logo of Bitcoin.
“In the text the uppercase B refers to the code and the lowercase b refers to the crypto,” he clarified.

“I provide protection with my business and now with my brand, so that if any person or company at the national level wants to misuse the logo we all know, and the word ‘Bitcoin,’ I have a claim for misuse of my brand.”
“I am not a fake Satoshi, I have just registered the ownership and legitimate use of the logo and the word. If someone uses it incorrectly, I will defend it.”
