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.

Why do I get a walgreens commercial in my head?  At the corner of Progress & Innovation?

New Economy Market?
Taken by a NXT clone ... or close to (they use movement instead of market)

what about
iMarket ... (just kidding)

- MarketX
- TheMarket
- MX ?

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?

Some kind of digital vortex scaling wrap .... it wraps around all legacy systems and funnels capital out of  paper debt based fiat financialization and into a sustain digital asset class that stores economic energy ...

"Digital EE scaling"

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

You're still talking about what it is and not about how it works

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?
