General Name for BitSharesX
« on: August 19, 2014, 11:09:00 am »
I was reading posts on Truthcoin forum referencing the "tomorrow market" that MIT students are proposing.

This lead me to ask, what is the general market name for BitShares X?  Prediction market doesn't truly fit, or does it? Tomorrow market? Bucket shop? Parallel Market?

If this is a hidden marketing secret, by all means keep it under wraps...

That's what I am proposing to BM and the community, Luckybit, we should "pick one." No need to be short.

I do not think "x-treme" would be a good monicker due to the reference to extreme, which is not an informative adjective. "New economy" is also probably not a good monicker as it is too vague.

Though that isn't accurate either as it has several other functions.

On a related note, we have the financial center of the world on Wall Street. And then there's Pennsylvania Avenue (White House), K Street (the corrupt heart of Washington DC's lobbyists), and, of course, Main Street. Other countries and cities have their own place names like this, such as Downing Street in the U.K. In every U.S. election, the media is always talking about Wall Street versus Main Street.

This is a new industry, a new paradigm. What street is BitShares on? If I recall, there's a Progress Street in Blacksburg, VA. And an Innovation Drive. And a Ramble....no, we don't want that one. Price Fork Drive is compelling also!

I'd say, metaphorically at least, that BitShares could be on Progress Street. Wall Street's time has come and gone. Welcome to Progress Street. Other thoughts welcomed.

New Economy Movement is the NXT clone but New Economy Market isn't such a bad idea. It would identify with the New Economy Movement as a community.

The point is if you're trying to get people to adapt a name it might be better to be similar to what people already accept. Bitcoin, Bitshares. Bitcoin, Litecoin.

I think you guys missed the point of this thread.

OP is asking "what do we call the special prediction market / polymorphic digital asset" concept. It's not a traditional prediction market, it's not a "tomorrow market", and "BitSharesX" is the product name.

What is the mechanism called?

It's less the point of what it is, and more the point of what it's about. Ie The stock market is about stocks; the bond market is about bonds; the futures market is about futures, derivatives, options; the forex market is about currencies.

Is the BitSharesX market about BitAssets?  Should it be called a BitAsset Market?

On the same theme as mirror, I've got 'chameleon market'

But yes, I think the most likely outcome is just 'A BitAsset Market'
& just like you have to learn what a stock/bond is you have to learn what a BitAsset is.

Well...."NashMarket" has a certain ring to it.  I always thought of bitsharesx as being able to be forked by multiple other coins, essentially enabling the creation of many BitShares based exchanges that provide value to their own native token and the tokens of those who invested in the toolkit's construction--for instance:  Primecoin could have PrimeSharesX (X=exchange), Litecoin could have LiteSharesX, Darkcoin could have DarkSharesX...etc, and each of their market pegs could reinforce the market pegs on other exchanges.  For this reason, I think bitsharesx is perfect.

You will eventually get Ass. Market from the trolls if you let it have bitAsset and Market in the name. 

So far, most the names proposed are horrible.  :(

Mirror Market? What are you mirroring? Sounds second rate, like it beyond the secondary market.

DAX sounds like you are saying DAC's, so no. Anything with matrix, digital, or polymorphic sounds like techno babble.

Prediction is a word that needs to be in the definition of the name, not the name itself.

I like this. CD's is easy to say and remember. In some countries they are, "Certified Deposits" or "Certificates of Deposit" but you can't expect too much exclusivity with a two character acronym.


As for a catchy name for the exchange what about Xbit? "Volume on Xbit rose today on news that Dell would begin accepting bitUSD as payment". "In other news xBit has now become The place to participate in crypto-asset trading".

Perhaps known colloquially as crypto-derivatives (CDs).


I like this. CD's is easy to say and remember. In some countries they are, "Certified Deposits" or "Certificates of Deposit" but you can't expect too much exclusivity with a two character acronym.


As for a catchy name for the exchange what about Xbit? "Volume on Xbit rose today on news that Dell would begin accepting bitUSD as payment". "In other news xBit has now become The place to participate in crypto-asset trading".


or bitX...


where X=variable=  usd,eur,cny,gold,silver, whatever, etc.

that sounds really good actually.

feels like..



...  die banksters!

Even if this doesn't get officially adopted this is how I'm going to explain to people how I made my millions (because otherwise they wouldn't be asking me about it haha).
