Seems like people like having one "main" chain. Once XT is upgraded we can call it "BitShares X" for everyone to be able to rally around, since having a family of chains called "bitshares X" is apparently too abstract to handle. This one will have a small number of BitAssets and also normal user-issued assets.

Of course there will still be a family of chains as was always the plan, and I guess we can call it "The BTS X family". "BitShares X" won't trade altcoins or fiat (besides USD), those will be "XC" "XF", etc. All snapshots from bitshares X with 100% initial allocation.

Would this add or remove confusion?

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Or drop the T right away and announce ‘We have decided to remove All assets, this is it enjoy’ , this will serve better my new plans  :)
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

Why not naming it something meaningful for everyone and using that (full) name everywhere until people start using abbreviation(s)?

DISCLAIMER: Actual order of DAC creation may vary, with the exception of BitShares XT, which will be the first to launch, and which will convert into BitShares X once the testing phase is over.

ngl, i always thought that BitShares XT will be renamed to BitShares X after the testing phase is over. Then what exactly do you mean "which will convert into BitShares X once the testing phase is over." ?
