Filed on Nov. 6, a filing for the trademark "PayString" gives scant information as to which business or product will be marketed under its canopy. Indeed, the trademark registration description is identical to that used for Ripple's "ripplenet" filing earlier this year.

In August, Ripple filed a further two trademark applications with USPTO that included the same application descriptions as ripplenet and PayString. A filling for another, Ripple Impact, sought, by contrast, to cover categories of charitable foundation services.

While the company busies itself with registering new trademarks in the U.S., a longstanding controversy has this week resurfaced.
