I agree about the need to change the name...
what about...

unique








I like it....alot.

It could always be called veriblocks or veribits as well.  I actually think at this point that as much as people hate the "bit" prefix, it really is powerful to use especially with people who are learning about bitcoin and wanting in on the action.  Why? Association between bitcoin...bitshares...veribits are all easier for less blockchain savvy users and investors to associate with one another as, say, bitcoin, graphene and unique.  I sometimes think people in these forums forget just how far ahead of the curve they ALL are on this tech, so they tend to forget that we have to slow it down and take baby steps toward moving the masses into these ecosystems.

@data.  Bitsoul is where it's at...all. the. Way.

What about iDEM ? Identity (or internet) Decentralized Money.

I think we should have an "M" for once and start treating crypto as "money" by definition and not "coins". Coins sound cheap and something you want to collect. Money sounds real, something you want to have and use..

IDEM sounds also like edem which is nice..

There are a lot of organizations using "idex", but iDEX does sound and look impressive.

Yes, iDEX makes a lot of sense. For me it's the best proposal so far. Short, smart, simple and sharp.
Also the name UNIQUE sounds good.

9 Great Reasons Why It's The Winner
  • Z - Last letter representing finality
  • idex - Combination of ID + DEX = Identification + Decentralized Exchange
  • 2 Syllable
  • Search it out.. unique for this space.
  • Spells out like it sounds.
  • Sounds close to the word 'index' .. which is innocuous and might even lend a little meaning that is appropriate.
  • I think it sounds out in a way that most languages can pronounce
  • Won't mean dick in another language I believe.
  • Only costs brownie.pts for my contribution if accepted. :)

GO For Zidex!!
Why not just make it INDEX ? Clean and simple.

Even better without the "n".

IDex, iINDEX, IDEx or ... IDEX !

ID + DEX + (more or less) INDEX

Even if all this renaming thing sounds funny I'm 100% agree with all of you, IDentabit will be an handicap in the commercial process. I hope it's not too late to rethink it  :P

why not iDEX

What about?

MyCoin

MyCoin "has your identity, nobody can steal it". 

This is the main end user benefit.

It's quite telling that a discussion thread dedicated to criticism ended up to be purely about the name.
And that's because that's the case really - everything is solid and flawless except the name.

I think to myself: what a shame such a great idea is going to be wasted for such trivial reason.
So please John don't kill your brilliant child with an ill-chosen name. It will come and haunt you when you try to promote it. People are mostly irrational and the name will distract them from the concept itself.

What I already proposed in the other thread is this: IDENTICON. It's not perfect but the best I can come up with if we need to have the word "identity" embedded in it.

Or it can even be Pied Piper  ;)

I agree with everything you wrote except the last part. In particular, you've summed up the criticisms nicely. But IDENTICON? You're asking us to trust you with your CON? There'a lot of subliminal negativity that comes with an ending like "con". If ID is the thing, then I'd rather use another suffix. Identidonkey, identizon, identifree, identimelon, identitties, identicake, identures, identiwax, identidoodle, identibrownies. Okay, so some of those are worse, but not all!
I agree that the CON ending is quite unfortunate in this context.

So why not just call it IDENTITY - pure and simple. A bit too long but at least easy to remember.
Or go for the less original but also less risky names like: OXYGEN, ATOM, SOLARIS, SENSUS.
