Important Criticism
« on: August 13, 2015, 12:02:02 PM »

Hi All

We want to hear how we can improve anything and everything about the Identabit journey.

Lets try and keep it constructive but don't take that to mean we don't like criticism, we do.

If you are keen to help out this is the place to let us know.

Thanks folks, a great day thanks to you.

Good night I am wasted.

John

I would love to create an alternative logo design for IDentabit logo .. :) as i'm find the IMPACT font isn't really suited for a cutting edge business like IDentabit…


Domains for considering to register also ..;)

Been waiting for that thread :)

Regarding the identabit.com website:

1. In the sliding pictures at the top:

- "A serious solution to an extraordinary opportunity" -> does that make sense? might be some fancy marketing language but there are no solutions to opportunities.

- "The first identity based, decentralized identity based currency" ->  Should probably say: "The first identity based, decentralized currency"

2. Almost at the bottom in the security section:

- You say: "Vulnerability to theft (high) / (low)". There was a quick reasoning with the other ratings. This seems a little unfounded to me.

Seems like the German forum forces got your back ;)

I like this project and think it has potential. The one thing that seems unprofessional to me is the name itself. I would suggest using a naming service like http://www.namebase.com (there are many others). I would also recommend staying away from any and all cliches like "bit" for example. I would opt for a name that has nothing to do with cryptocurrency. Example: Ethereum, Ripple, Stellar, Graphene. These are all great names.

Good point! Although having the "ident" in the name helps a lot for a contrast full media battle.

To me the main pain with the name is its length.

Agreed.  Maybe something like Veriabit (for verify) would be better.   But even that is not good enough.  Branding needs a makeover.  Concept is trojan golden.

I would like to see how the Banks can directly benefit of this, and why they will use this, instead of other technologies. If banks are expecting to save billions using blockchain technology it will be great to see how can this help them.
I believe with just AML compliance, they could save millions, and it will be a good point of sell for both them and governments.

Most important there are not excuses now for transparency, nobody can oppose to a blockchain that solves all the "problems" of Bitcoin.

I'm not a big fan of the name either. Mainly because you will have a hard time to seem serious with French speakers.

I don't know how to make this comment and don't sound like a retarded teenager but ...

iIdentabit pronounce itself the same way as " i dans ta bite " which you can translate  from french by " i in your dick "

The equivalent thing would be like naming a french company something like "inyordik"

Any other french speakers over here who find the name no very suited for french pronunciation ?

Hahaha :)

But that's where they install the microchips! :P

Perhaps a naming schema in Esperanto would land a safe wording worldwide? :)

I already started on this naming thing in the last thread.. Something to do with badge I think would work great on a lot of levels. It fits in with something people understand.. it has poential for people to really build a personalized something out of it.. and saying 'what is your badgeID' or whatever it ends up being is universally understood.

Again.. my 2 brownie.pts.

I seriously like the Esperanto idea! Check this http://www.esperanto-panorama.net/vortaro/eoen.htm
Mono means money. Suggestions:
MonoID
IDMono
IdentMono
MonoIdent

IDMono even sounds like "the money".

Any problems with that Estaffan?  :D

OK, say you are a bank, and your boss wants you to "adopt blockchain tech" because "everyone's doing it"

and you have $5 million budget.

You can either hire a team of lawyers and people to perform and maintain the KYC requirements.  You end up spending $4.8 million, and receive the $200,000 difference as your christmas bonus

Or you outsource all KYC requirements to IDentibit (for zero dollars) and pocket the whole $5 million as a christmas bonus!

IDentibit provides blockchain KYC to any banks (or company that wants to do business in NY)(bitlicense) FOR FREE!!

What would a bank or any crypto biz have to pay in order to maintain KYC data on all its crypto customers?  Not anymore.

I like this project and think it has potential. The one thing that seems unprofessional to me is the name itself.  I would stay away from any and all cliches like "bit" for example. I would opt for a name that has nothing to do with cryptocurrency. Example: Ethereum, Ripple, Stellar, Graphene. These are all great names.
Good point! Although having the "ident" in the name helps a lot for a contrast full media battle.

To me the main pain with the name is its length.

You are absolutely correct, having the "ident" in the name is extremely helpful in getting this coin adopted globally.

This is why we are officially changing the "ident" to "adent"

"IDentitibit" will from now on be known as "inentabit"

because we do not want to be helpful, and arbitrarily changing the spelling of the root concept "identity" to "identatity" guarantees user confusion, leaving the door wide open for a catchy $110 market cap Ethereum or $250 million market cap Ripple to rip our idea off by releasing a competing business model named:

"bitKYC"

What functionality does Ethereum have (or promise to have in the future) over BitShares? How much does the name "Ethereum" contribute to its current 10x market cap advantage over BitShares?

I don't think that people are grasping the impact that this concept will have.

The US government said that cryptocurrencies can compete legally with the USD, but only if you do what this coin does for you for free.

so why not change the name to

freeKYC

that way you will have an intuitive grasp of what this coin is and what it can do for you without having to ask:

how do you spell that?

Don't worry, the Ethereum team will soon show you how to take over this lucrative market again.
