Hindsight now, but BitShares X should be called

The Bank of Earth

Or

The Universal Bank

Or

The Universal Bank of Earth



Thoughts?

Are we allowed to represent it as a bank?

People new to bitshares already have a hard time trying to understand it and confuse things, changing names again, this soon would only add to the confusion

Agree

"bank" will be more easier to understand and get the core concept by the mass.

How about "Bitshares Bank Online" ?

+1 for calling it a bank.

I think it makes sense to drop the BitShares but keep the X branding.

X-Bank or
X-Bank & Exchange

Or something more creative

At least in the USA, and perhaps elsewhere, what something is called rather than what it is often has more standing with the law.  Calling it a bank would bring US regulators down on us like a ton of bricks.

Ok, thought that was the case. Don't think it needs BitShares in the name though, but probably fine then.
