Underwun do you want ideas for a name change? Feel like we're all piling in and you might be really happy with it!

I have tried but IDentabit is somewhat difficult to bond with!   ;D

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?

Etherium has a good market cap because they were able to get momentum behind their tech. That counts more than many here would like to believe.

So if growing the business like CCEDK, Graphene, CoinKYC, Peertracks, BANX, FMV, and the other 90 pages of your growing periodical does not constitute "momentum"

then what is "momentum"?

marketing?

memes?

perfect branding?

Ethereum is already dead:

http://cointelegraph.com/news/115118/tau-chain-a-decentralized-app-store-with-greater-flexibility-than-ethereum

by the way, did we get in on the first round of approvals:

http://www.coindesk.com/nydfs-22-bitlicense-applications/


AND THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY idCOIN WILL ROCK THE BITCOIN WORLD:

this shit is no longer possible in our community:

http://www.coindesk.com/dutch-supermarket-bomber-demands-bitcoin-ransoms/

HOw about we call it the opposite of what it is:

RansomCoin





Speaking of marketing, ever hear of BitUSD?
http://www.coindesk.com/fiat-wallets-the-key-to-bitcoin-going-mainstream/

because the 30 people discussing this article (at the bottom) never heard of it, or what it accomplishes.

It mainly just needs a new name, imo.

I wouldn't check out a coin called 'identabit' if it wasnt associated with bitshares, purely because of the name.  Ethereum and Graphene are great names.  I dont know what the right name is but I dont think anything called identabit is going to capture the minds of the people of the world.  Someone mentioned Gravity, so maybe something like: 'GravID'?  Maybe that just seems cheesy, I dont know.

Relevant to the naming debate is also how Identabits will be used. Do people  use identabits as a medium of exchange then the name is a little long. Related question in full length: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,17934.msg228864.html#msg228864

The number of syllables in things that people can trade:

Bit-coin: 2
Ripp-le: 2
Eth-er: 2
Lite-coin: 2
Bit-share: 2  (or Graph-ene: 2)
Doge: 1
Maid: 1

I-Dent-a-bit: 4.  It takes way too long to say.  Limit the name to 2 syllables.

as a marketing rule, this is almost law, but in fairness to the developers, I'm sure that they have an effective abbreviation for Identibitcoins just as "Ethers" is an effective abbreviation for Ethereum

- id's ?

- dentas

-dbits

OK, we're ready to hear the effective abbreviation..

What is the accurate terminology for 2 TaxCoins?  I mean Identibits?

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.

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 ?

Does that mean that bitcoin is dick coin?

Is bitshares dick shares?

lavabit?
NuBits?

Well ... Indeed.

But it doesn't sound weird because we are use to hear "bit-something" in the informatic world without thinking necessarily about our 3rd tiny leg  ...  :P

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

Seem all right to me  :P

Edit : what about IdenTT ?

This is fun... we should have more threads telling others how they should name their businesses. :)

My sense is that there's not a great likelihood IDentabit will work well as a name for this purpose.  So here are my entries for an alternative.

Solara (so-lah-ra)
currency: solar (so-lahr) or sol

Spectrum or Spectra
currency: spectra or spec

Radius
currency: rad
