BitShares vs. Bitshares

Bitcoin and all its clones use a lowercase "c". What should the official nomenclature be for bit + shares?

Brian had declared it shall be "BitShares"

I can remember a post from Stan and Dan saying the same .. for me it's always been BitShares!

other options:
bitshares
bitShares

I like the upper-case S, as other terms within it follow that pattern: BitAssets, BitUSD, etc.. I also like it as it's more clear to read. With bitcoin, a 't' followed by a 'c' does not link phonetically, so it's unambiguously 'bit' + 'coin'. However with Bitshares, a 't' followed by an 's' is a common phonetic link, and therefore the division can be ambiguous for those who have never seen the word before. 'Bits' + 'hares' or even 'Bitsh' + 'ares'.

I honestly can't decide, no preferance.

Actually "Bits hares", or "Bitsh are 's" (like toys r us).

BitCoin always looked weird to me, Bitcoin looks better.


BitShares doesn't look as weird, but I still think I prefer Bitshares.

Bitshares looks better, BitShares just looks like another asset, like BitGLD or something

I voted Bitshares with a lowercase s. In my opinion, it looks more professional and is consistent with industry nomenclature.

I voted for BitShares, however after having a second thought I must admit that Bitshares looks (and sounds when read as one word) more fluid! This is like an organic new word symbolising the paradigm, not a "linguistic invention"...

Perhaps you could have MicroSoft, EBay, AliBaba, FaceBook... But this doesn't look right now.
On the other hand, we do have PayPal and YouTube

I vote for all lowercase

bitshares

or

bitShares (like bitAssets )

I agree with METHOdox  but I want the "b" also lowercase because of our logo (b)... what's the point of our logo else?

@MeTHoDx - before late, would you kindly recast the poll with five options?
1. BitShares
2. Bitshares
3. bitShares
4. bitshares
5. BITSHARES - this one for completeness ;)

I'd probably go with "BitShares".
