New Name Ideas of Nxt (easier to find on google f.e.)
« on: February 16, 2016, 12:20:45 pm »

In the topic: https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/follow-the-line/msg209666/#new there was a discussion about a new name in the future for NXT.

This is due to the fact, users are not able to easily find us by a search engine.

Sooner or later we should rename Nxt so that people can search for it without getting wrestling or Lego links. Maybe 2.0 will be a good time to rebrand.

i'd imagine this would cause a big hit to the existing brand. i wonder how much of a hit did protoshares took when it rebranded to bitshares?

But it helped DASH a lot.


What do you think and what will be a good name?

First question, what does NXT stand for or doesn't it have any meaning?

- name it in a way where it can also capitalize on other similar projects so you can also get some of their market share aswell.

- also name it in a way that gives it a sense of authority.

- short and simple

but what happens to all of the pre-built websites under nxt? that would be a waste of time having built it.

Yeah you are right.
Better SEO in all of our sites (projects) probably will help to get on top, because of the amount of the sites and projects.

I have the same feelings. I think a rebranding and renaming of Nxt has already crossed everybodys mind here. But there have been so much work to get "Nxt" as a brand out there that we would need to start nearly from zero with a rebrand. But our content has grown over the past two years and a rebranding could help start from a more educated level than we did firstly. Maybe we can partly do that with Nxt 2.0, depends on which model will be chosen from Jean-Luc's proposal.

Let's rebrand to Flash......

Being slightly more serious: the problem with Nxt as a name is that it's not amazingly original, and there are other players in the fintech world (ignoring Lego and wrestling) who may have prior claim on Nxt as a trademark. Damelon commissioned some research on this from a real trademark bureau, so he has more details.

This means that we could be forced to rebrand Nxt at some stage in the future, if someone wishes to assert a prior claim on the trademark Nxt.

Rebranding will be a lot of work, and a massive pain in the arse, but the easiest and most logical moment to do it (if we decide to do so) will be if/when we move to Nxt 2.0.
That is a long way away yet, but no harm in thinking about it now. Someone may come up with the best name ever.....

Brainstorm and discuss, please, people.....

Here's the named versions thread, just for some extra inspiration:

Advantages of NXTC

- its still related to NXT
- you dont need to change a lot
- its is clear what is meant (next one after Bitcoin)
- its a own brand without any relation to another tech companies (just google it)
- it sounds as usual

NXTPlatform

Reading this I have got the idea that we should name the platform Nxt completely different than the currency NXT. Both names should be new and unique, so that they can be easily searched for.

Sometimes an intentional "typo" can make an otherwise common expression better searchable, i.e. "Possyble" (which would also contain a hint that this is a proof-of-stake system).

The most effective tool a cryptocurrency has against legal threats is ignoring them. Also there are others, such as Bitcoin, which have more resources and money for interacting with the legal system. I would also oppose the idea that a cryptocurrency is in the same category with any other pre-crypto product it could be mixed up with, it's very different.

It seems that other changes, for example the API, didn't work so well. A name change would cause unnecessary confusion. Also NXT is one of the few three letter combinations that almost makes up a real word.

We do NOT live in a bubble.

Like it or not, if we get a cease and desist, this doesn't only affect us.
It affects ANY company using Nxt, and they will also be forbidden to use our name/brand.

Given that we WANT adoption, that leaves us in a terrible place, because we'd be dragging any partner into problems. They will not be allowed to use Nxt brand anywhere, effectively hiding us from view.

Any interaction with the Nxt name will be impossible. The Nxt Foundation would need to cease operations under the name.

Sorry to be the harbinger of doom here, but that's what can (and once we grow WILL) happen.

We are at a good juncture to do this if we want. The 2.0 is probably the only point in time when we could do this AND reap PR brownie points due to generating publicity for it.

Nxt is a GOOD name, and guess what: that's why over 100 companies already have prior rights. There's not even a chance of going to court over this, as it will be dismissed as a frivolous case. Case law is very clear on this: whomever registered first, gets the name. We were far from the first.

As to names with "nxt" in it: won't wash, it's possibility of confusion that counts, so any name would almost automatically fall under the same law due to similarity.

Has it happened to any other cryptocurrency? I don't think so.

I wonder if Satoshi got any Cease and desist letters in his mailbox. He was clearly breaking many laws, but he ignored them. It seems to have worked fine.

I'd disagree with the value of brownie points and publicity. The value of a cryptocurrency seems to depend on the fact that the blockchain will continue no matter what happens. Reacting to legal threats is contrary to that idea. And to be truly safe we would need to pick a random name like Jsdgfhsdofiwehfew.

NXT is established in the cryptocurrency domain. The other companies work in their own domains. I don't think an average consumer will confuse a currency with any other product.

Not necessarily: "15 August 1994, William R. Della Croce, Jr. filed for the trademark Linux" (Wikipedia).

And later:

"In 1996, Torvalds and some affected organizations sued him to have the trademark assigned to Torvalds, and, in 1997, the case was settled."

Obviously the legal system will slowly decide how cryptocurrency is handled, but I would rather have somebody with more money and resources do it (preferably Bitcoin), not NXT with limited resources. Just ignoring the issues will cost the least.

Why would Satoshi get a Cease and Desist over the name Bitcoin? It didn't exist, so the example doesn't apply.
Nxt DOES exist and has been registered by many.

This is the point where the law applies.

Reacting to legal threats is contrary to that idea. And to be truly safe we would need to pick a random name like Jsdgfhsdofiwehfew.

The blockchain WILL continue. The name won't. Simple as that. No one will be allowed to use it for such use. No company that is registered will.
Again: that is the point.

The random name is just silly. There are many names available. We can use any name that doesn't conflict by the standards of international trademark laws.

In this I say we get the best out of a bad situation: market the change! It will at least get us more attention.

Nxt is a GOOD name, and guess what: that's why over 100 companies already have prior rights.

NXT is established in the cryptocurrency domain. The other companies work in their own domains. I don't think an average consumer will confuse a currency with any other product.

Sorry to break it to you, but the cryptocurrency domain is TINY compared to business at large, and Nxt is even tiny there.
Once we are established and this blows up in our faces, we're in much more trouble than we would be now.
We are in the lucky position to be only known in a very small group, so we still have this room.
Once we break out, we
a) actually are becoming a target and a problem for other registered trademarks and,
b) will have much more to lose.

Case law is very clear on this: whomever registered first, gets the name. We were far from the first.

Not necessarily: "15 August 1994, William R. Della Croce, Jr. filed for the trademark Linux" (Wikipedia).

And later:

"In 1996, Torvalds and some affected organizations sued him to have the trademark assigned to Torvalds, and, in 1997, the case was settled."

Obviously the legal system will slowly decide how cryptocurrency is handled, but I would rather have somebody with more money and resources do it (preferably Bitcoin), not NXT with limited resources. Just ignoring the issues will cost the least.

I think this proves you don't know how trademark law works.

This example is about a time when the Linux trademark was NOT registered by anyone and someone tried to squat it and make money.
The law then protects anyone who can prove prior use and economic benefit. This is what happened here.

For Nxt, the situation is much more clear cut: there ARE prior registrations. Not one, but MANY.
This means, whatever we try, we will lose any case outright. There is no recourse AT ALL against this, because it's done.

Let me state the facts of trademark law, so we don't get confusion

1. Trademark law only applies when names that have economic value conflict. DASH could claim theirs because the detergent brand does not operate in IT. Thus: no conflict and the brand can survive.
For Nxt, there are many names in IT that can conflict.

A small sample just from the Netherlands:
NXT Group B.V.
U-NXT B.V.
NXT Holding B.V.
NXT B.V.
NXT Business

Some wordmarks that directly conflict and would oppose us are:

https://register.boip.int/bmbonline/search/bynumber/perform.do
Benelux trademark NXT:0854410
European Trademark NXT: https://oami.europa.eu/eSearch/#basic/1+1+1+1/50+50+50+50/5641147
European Trademark NEXT: https://oami.europa.eu/eSearch/#basic/1+1+1+1/50+50+50+50/8996308
European Trademark NEXT: https://oami.europa.eu/eSearch/#basic/1+1+1+1/50+50+50+50/8218885

I can go on and on.
According to trademark law, ANY of these could oppose NXT on lawful grounds and would win outright.

Doesn't matter if it's NXT or NEXT. It's the possible confusion that counts.

2. Trademark law goes by who registers first.
In all these cases, we lose.

I have met one of the people who were sued in this. He has quite a few stories to tell. Being sued is not nice, especially over something you thought you were safe from. This guy had US police at his door and had to fly to the US to get his name cleared.

My point in all of this is: why the hell chance it? Because we are attached to the name? The blockchain is what counts and our tech. The name is incidental and if it gets us into more trouble than we need, why not consider changing it now that we can?

Why would Satoshi get a Cease and Desist over the name Bitcoin? It didn't exist, so the example doesn't apply.

Satoshi probably stayed anonymous because he operated in a gray area of the law (not trademarks, all other laws). If he had asked the advice of a lawyer, he would have been told to stop.

We can use any name that doesn't conflict by the standards of international trademark laws.

We should then register it ourselves to prevent others from getting it later. I'm not in principle opposed to that, if it doesn't cost too much. I still think it is a safer strategy to fly under the radar and interact with the legal system after having more money and resources. Or follow the lead of other cryptos, not make changes because of any possible threat. 

Nxt DOES exist and has been registered by many.

This is the point where the law applies.

I think you are arguing a technicality. An average consumer will not confuse NXT the cryptocurrency with some other NXT.

I think this proves you don't know how trademark law works.

My point was also that this kind of nonsense litigation can run for years or decades and cost money. Of course changing the name doesn't cost a lot of money directly, but it is an indirect cost I would avoid, at least only for the reason of a trademark.

This means, whatever we try, we will lose any case outright. There is no recourse AT ALL against this, because it's done.

I would say it is an open question which laws apply to cryptocurrencies (all laws, not just this issue).

DASH could claim theirs because the detergent brand does not operate in IT. Thus: no conflict and the brand can survive.
For Nxt, there are many names in IT that can conflict.

DASH is such a common word, that I would guess it has even more conflicts in IT than NXT, but I'm just guessing.

I would agree not to pick a name that somebody else uses. That's also the spirit of the law. I believe NXT wasn't chosen to conflict with anyone on purpose.

Because this issue is too much of a legal technicality, and also because other technicalities could bring down cryptos.

Perhaps the name change is a borderline case where potential threats from the existing legal system could be accomodated with little direct costs. I still wouldn't do it, at least not for this reason only.

I think you miss the point that we have done let an agency do research into this.

This is not just me talking as a person who knows something about trademark law, having worked in it...

Others have done this already. That is the point.

We cannot register it.

In our case, it would never take this long as we'd lose outright. It's an open and shut case. It would just mean losing any right to the name outright and a hefty fine attached when ever using it again. In some jurisdictions (US and Germany for instance) it will even land us a fine for the time we've been using it now.

Doesn't matter. It's done and the situation is as described.

I am not talking bollocks here. This is a real thing. You might not want to look facts in the face, I prefer to do.

I think you miss the point that we have done let an agency do research into this.

This is not just me talking as a person who knows something about trademark law, having worked in it...

Or follow the lead of other cryptos, not make changes because of any possible threat. 

This
shows you are not hearing what I am saying.

Others have done this already. That is the point.

We cannot register it.

If there is a new name for NXT, then I believe we should register it, or the same situation can repeat later.

I would agree not to pick a name that somebody else uses. That's also the spirit of the law. I believe NXT wasn't chosen to conflict with anyone on purpose.

hate to dig up bcnxt stuff, but if i recall correct nxt was chosen as a _temporary_ name. the community later decided to keep it. i'm thinking the implications were not clear at the time and with everything else going on (nxt pumping, literally everything pumping) it seemed like easy going and not important. things have changed, we have evolved, learned and organized. we shouldn't make the same mistakes again, when an opportunity to improve presents itself.

i personally think the name is just ok, not great, not original. what its got going for it is the awesome logo.

OK, this clarifies your point :)
And I agree.
This is how it's done anyway in normal business. First check and then register.

1. Trademark law only applies when names that have economic value conflict. DASH could claim theirs because the detergent brand does not operate in IT. Thus: no conflict and the brand can survive.
For Nxt, there are many names in IT that can conflict.
[..]
I can go on and on.
According to trademark law, ANY of these could oppose NXT on lawful grounds and would win outright.

Doesn't matter if it's NXT or NEXT. It's the possible confusion that counts.

But... but... if hundreds or more companies already use NXT/NEXT in the IT business, doesn't that actually mean that NONE of them can claim the trademark? Doesn't it work like patents, where you are obliged to defend your right, or you lose it? If those companies haven't sued eachother for trademark infringement,  they can't just suddenly start sueing NXT (crypto)?

Numerus stands for 'digital' actually. Reticulum is for network.

I'm still not convinced, but I'll leave this topic now. You might be technically correct that the creator of a new open source project should do a trademark search before beginning to write code, but there is something offensive about that idea. So I don't think this would be good publicity among open source developers. If this is true, then it would cause them more work and more problems. As NXT has joined the Linux Foundation, I would be surprised if they like the idea either. I haven't throught this kind of thing would be a problem before reading this thread. Maybe this is prevented in practice by the fact that companies that would start suing open source projects would look like idiots.

Wasn't this cripto once coin called "NxtCoin"?. I'm pretty sure no entity uses that name.
That way, no change of name for Nxt cripto-related companies would be needed.

Anyway we, the common people, would keep calling it Nxt...

In my opinion, a different approach could be a good idea to find a name that suits well.

So perhaps this could give inspiration:

O - organic / origin(al) / organized / open
A - artificial / age(d) / alter(ed) / autark(y)
K - krypto / koin / kommunity / key / knot / knowledge / (Kaos)  .... [hard to find but k sounds cool anyway :)]

I think 3 letters should be good enough to be recognisable. So for me, OAK stands for an OrganicArtificialKoin, if I have to explain the letters.
When OAK comes to my mind it reminds me of something green, natural and living. (refers to ernergy saving and the coorporative community)
Likewise also strong and robust in some way. It has roots and all these saplings around. (all the nodes and future childchains)
Perhaps this is a little symbiosis between tech and the environment that can grow togehter.

Sure at the end, most will say it's just a tree and has no common features with crypto.
But it produces the oxygen that we need to live and we transfer back in form of carbon dioxid which leads to a fantastic circle.
(reminds me in an abstract way of the forging fees that float through the NXT ecosystem)

Keep in mind there is this well known company which sounds like an ordinary fruit and I know for sure, some fruits grow on trees ;).

This is a interesting discussion. It's not nice to change the name of Nxt, but I believe it should be done. It prevents us from being sued. And I believe a new name for Nxt will attract more people. Nxt is and was one of the best crypto out there, but somehow it did not always workfor Nxt. I believe Nxt got a bad name because of the initial distribution. I don't think it was wrong, but a lot of people did. It keeps spooking Nxt.

And when we start Nxt 2.0 it is a good thing to change the name. More crypto's did this succesfull, such as Dash and Maidsafe. It will attract curiousity and gives it a fresh start without strings and trouble attached from the past.

But unfortunately everything and everybody using the Nxt name should change there website/twitter/projects too. That is why it's never nice, websites will lose rankings, etc..

New names

I believe the name should be a one word and not a abbreviation. We are no boring corporation. I like these kind of words:

  • TOKEN
  • SCALE
  • PLATFORM
  • SYSTEM
  • BASIC
  • BASE
  • CHAIN

These are very basic generic words. People need to remember, don't misspell and it expesses simplicity and easy-to-use. we need to be a monopoly, a base, the very beginning. Let the word appeal to their imagination.  8)

I suggest not to use something with 'coin'.

Lydian electrum trite . This coin type, made of a gold and silver alloy, was in all likelihood the world's first, minted by King Alyattes in Sardis, Lydia, Asia Minor (present-day Turkey), c. 610-600 BC.

Hence "Electrum"

If the NXT 2.0 proposal is accepted, the rebranding needs to come up with 2 names (one for NXT and one for fNXT, the forging token). Both will exist separately, and will trade on exchanges etc. Probably a good idea to come up with names which reflect this parent/child relationship...

I see there was some ann in bitcointalk but haven't followed the project.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=829576.6000

The name blocknet sounds cool and is somewhat similar to what NXT 2.0 is trying to achieve.

blocknet was some kind of umbrella for several coins. similar to supernet. would be very confusing to use that name.

As I already posted in Nxt 2.0 Thread:

I have a name idea for this chain instead of "fNXT" we could call it "meta" as it contains information about the child chain but is not the childchain itself. It is "beyond" the childChains so I think the name META fits pretty well for this.

Metadata is "data that provides information about other data

So META for the fNXT and keep NXT for the childChain :)

It also seems very possible to get a good google ranking for META

Meta sounds appropriate and unique.
Maybe even the tokens could be referred to as Meta or meta nxt / Mnxt

In other thread also discussion about name. I have asked them to move it to this thread.


Names I have for now:
I like PARTON or GLUON (I have a theoretical physics backround :) ) Parton is a basic particle out of which all other particles are build, gluon is
a gravity quant, and it's cool because a week ago humanity discovered gravitational waves
Also WAVES seem to be nice, due to this :)
Forklog suggests RISE, which is pretty cool too, it can be XRS at exchanges.
Tell me what you guys think

I was wondering when the names discussion would start :)
Quark is taken, right?
'Lepton' is pretty good, and it is also the name of a coin in ancient Greece - the smallest unit. (Actually it looks like the sub-unit of modern Greek coins too.)
Edit: the lepton's symbol is lambda, which also has lots of connotations in different branches of science

I would remove the "coin" in the name because NXT is more than that! :)

That doesn't matter. The point is also to find it quick on google, so meta alone is not enough. Metacoin on the other hand fits that purpose.

I think it matters. As soon as I see the "coin" in the name it reminds me of all these hundreds of other "coins" around. I would go for something different and without the coin. "Ethereum" is a good example, it's a word that means only that and there is no coin in the word.
But this is just my opinion.

No, meta already tells it's more than a coin because it means it contains something else. The coin suffix is not bad, it tells it is related to crypto, the general public is familiar with that thanks to bitcoin.

But call it meta and let people browse 10 pages results before they find it.

Good point. Though found Ethereum too complex sounding, and dash too general, yet who can argue with success?

I prefer to keep nxt, but with nxt 2.0 there is an opportunity to call fNxt something more unique indeed.

This name can be more complex since it's target is not the end user but the crypto creator.

I would start from godaddy.com or somewhere else, to check availability of domains. The best would be to have a name and a matching domain.

I think NXT needs to remain the name, its good, it says alot about what we are.

We are the NXT generation of crypto!

Things are chipping away slowly and we will get world attention sooner or later.

the term next also suggests that we are going to be dominant, to replace something that already was in place (BTC).

We are a fresh start, continual progress.

Just hit the marketing harder and it will be alright, already the nxt revitalization plan has been successful.

We just need to hang in there.

NXTstuff should not be a problem only NXT is.. I'm not sure anymore cause then, we should simply go on with NXTCHAIN or/and, as we are already (want it or not) : NXTCOIN

Where is the possible confusion with any other NXT activity ? No NXTCHAIN trademark no NXTCOIN trademark, and more importantly no other NXT blockchain. Is there a NXT trademark related to e-payment or P2P crytpography ?

It there a confusion between the product they offer and ours ?

I just read this : http://magnumip.com.au/branding-trademarks/trademark-applications/what-are-trademark-classes/
which conclude that a "telecom company: consultancy and devices installation" could probably own a trademark EXCEL in its field of activity because it does not overlap the microsoft trademark on "spreadsheet software". It is quite close... so, at the extreme, you could market an OS and call it EXCEL....?

26^3 = 17576. So 17000 trademark in the nice class 42 with each 3 letters combinations and this TM class is entirely full ?
It is either impossible or the system is broken.

So for the system to remain, judges have to consider if the category of activity/protection is sharp enough, if not... because things change.. (and this classification is 20 years old) the only thing that remain is the description associated with the trademark. Some do not provide a description but if Microsoft did it with "spreadsheet software" and not "all IT" it is because they anticipated it.

NXTCHAIN and/or NXTCOIN and it should be fine.

Are should we go for "Dollars" ? it may not have a trademark ?  :P who owns that, and what is is Nice TM classification ? Then there would really be confusion.

Assuming somebody who holds the trademark for NXT, want to get us to stop, how will they do this? Jail our developers?  Make it illegal to type "N" "X" "T"?

In court they can demand to make it illegal to use the trademark Nxt. So they can take down sites/social media accounts. Businesses will likely not use Nxt too, because they can get fined. Horrible world without Nxt.  :o

Any rebranding should retain the word NXT i strongly feel.

Perhaps we need to just add another term or wording along with the word NXT or even come up with an acronym for NXT?

Just like NEM have done so, interestingly enough googling NEM comes up with pages of irrelevant stuff too.

How about something like:

New Xchange Technology

or..

Next Xchange Technology


Come on guys lets brainstorm and come up with something clever!

I love NXT, i love the branding and i love the logo.

NXT is the future, lets embrace it!

We sure like Nxt, but I think a rebrand with new name will get more attention and interest. And Nxt will get stripped off with all the negative arguments (bad distribution etc..) with a new name.

Well possibly, but if we were to do anything serious, we would be better off to pay some marketing agency to come up with a unique name that doesnt exist in the english language, just like for example how Kiwifruit are marketed as Zespri.

Something that pretty much all coins are lacking is marketing, and i mean serious marketing, not some DIY kind of stuff.

Im sure there must be people in the community who have such skills, if so, this would save considerable cost.

I dont really think that DASH has removed 100% of the bad stigma from darkcoin, its only really made it more attractive, and removed any ties with criminal activity.

We really need to define a name that ensures that we are a successor, something to replace the "old with"

Thats why NXT is attractive to me.
The thesaurus did not come up with many words that are unique at all.

Perhaps a latin translation or some other language may work?

liminal
liminal space

latin words maybe?

difficult finding a name that fits... i am against any name with coin in it, it will only be lumped with all the other shitcoins if that happens, also very  unoriginal with coin.

I kind of like liminal and nummus.

But Numus could work.


I still really like NXT and its futuristic logo though.

As far as trademark issues go, the term NXT is used everywhere, so is not an issue, its really only a distinct issue that a name change would easily resolve.

Surley we will surpass dogecoin, its only a matter of time before things settle out and balance.

Its stupid that a meme based coin can have such a high marketcap.

It shows that marketing is key, more than anything else.

Maybe just NXT 2.0?

It would solve the google/twitter search by making it more unique, it would make people to take a look again at nxt, because what's the 2.0 thing?

You can keep nxt, the 3 letter code, for the currency token.

It also keeps nxt and fnxt together, because if you are going to rename fnxt alone, you get more of a divide between the 2 coins and communities.


Rebranding only for legal reasons I am not convinced of.

As I often think: better to make money and risking it to be stolen by legalized thugs, than to make no money at all.


Rebranding nxt has a great cost. We lose all the marketing we have  put in the name. Many in the crypto community know nxt thanks to our 2 year effort.

Odds are very high we get a new bitcoin bubble and those coins will invest much more likely in something they have heard about several times before.

How many times did you have to hear 'bitcoin' or 'nxt' before you decided to invest?

I don't think rebranding is a good idea, but if Nxt 2.0 ends up with a different forging token I think that forging token should have a unique name.

"fNXT" is not very nice, it sounds too much like a short way of saying "f*** Nxt"!

I don't think rebranding is a good idea, but if Nxt 2.0 ends up with a different forging token I think that forging token should have a unique name.

"fNXT" is not very nice, it sounds too much like a short way of saying "f*** Nxt"!

For the parent chain, how about something which reflects its role (hosting a bunch of childchains)? I am thinking HOST, ROOT, BASE...

tell that to some random person. and if they can't spell it easily. fail.

ask someone to spell "ethereum", "bitshares", "dash", etc and they can very well spell it easily by pronouncing it. keep in mind nxt lacks marketing, and its branding situation your trying to solve.

sorry but i dont think your enexti will fly.

I think the best approach is to hit up a "English" forum that specializes in latin root words and pick the brains of those members to find a good name. Then cross reference it to existing brands that make use of it so it won't have a branding clash like legos and wrestling. Possibly greek related words. Just pulling some off the top of my head: Aegir, Minerva, Aero, etc....

FRG - Forge

I heard the term forging for the first time in relation to NXT. It was a unique idea to replace mining with sustainable solution.
NXT = Next Economy
FRG = Forging, core of the Nxt Economy

If the newcomers start to investigate, what are they gonna buy, it will be clear from the beginning. They will buy a forging token, which will secure the Next Economy.

Name it what it is. Forge. No more, no less. Strong focus.

I was thinking re-branding is a mistake but more positive news and less infighting would turn things around.

But that looks and sounds awesome.

I would agree to that.

So Legion is the forging coin and NXT the currency?

I think there will be a price turn around when both James become good in communication and find agreement.

Forging is for making Nxt chains more secure right?

Why not call it as its function:

For example

[SEC] Secure

[GUARD] Guard

[PRO] Protect

[SHI] Shield


...
[STN] Strengthen...

Speak for yourself. I can never spell "Ethereum" without looking it up.

The word "forge" is terrible, because to most people it means "faked". A forged banknote is not a real banknote. I think we're stuck with it (we've had threads to find something better, which failed), but I'd resist doubling down on it further.

The market decided mining for pos coins shall be called 'staking'.

I like it better than forging.

It is like a nice breeze in a warm spring day.

Or it can be "Spring" too. But the original Flash is also very good.

NXT or NEXT is good in my humble opinion.

In all honesty, I still think any re-branding/re-naming is a bad idea.  Nxt has a legacy, good and bad, and trying to rename it to something else ultimately dilutes that brand.  Nxt is the first fully PoS crypto that was not a clone of Bitcoin, and it has a very good name that we should carry proudly.

(plus I always thought it was cool how Nxt backwards is Txn, the common abbreviation for "transaction")


* perhaps there should be a separate thread for naming the fNXT token as the suggestions are getting co-mingled here

I'd go with an easy to pronounce and simple name. Look at all these popular coins: Ethereum (Ether), Ripple, Dash, Factom, Stellar. I think a nice one word with a complete rebrand would do us good.

Initially I thought so, too. But nobody except those still here cares about that legacy going along with the name NXT. You can see evidence for this on coinmarketcap.com. Therefore IMO it doesn't make much sense to stick to the name and hazard the consequences of legal fights over branding. Those really interested in the ideology can still find our history on BTT or here. As long as we are still NXT under the new name, everything should be fine.

nXTX has good opportunity on google... to be well  indexed  ... there is no big corp with this name
good for us ...smooth  transition
x can refer simply to the versions

I see NXT 2.0 like a tree with several branches. Probably fnxt could be called "root" or something like that. :)

Someone few pages before, suggested OAK for the same reason.

Initially I thought so, too. But nobody except those still here cares about that legacy going along with the name NXT. You can see evidence for this on coinmarketcap.com. Therefore IMO it doesn't make much sense to stick to the name and hazard the consequences of legal fights over branding. Those really interested in the ideology can still find our history on BTT or here. As long as we are still NXT under the new name, everything should be fine.

What evidence?  The price?  That has nothing to do with the name Nxt.  Darkcoin had to rename for anyone to take them seriously because it sounded like some angry teenager project, and "Dash" is already used by Amazon.

I also think the legal hazard doesn't really exist.  Lego uses Nxt, WWE uses NXT, some bank uses Nxt, Runescape uses Nxt, etc, and this is an open-source project so there is no "official" name because BCNext is anonymous and the community simply ran with the name as it evolved.

Nxt.org appears on the first page when you Google search for Nxt, it can't get easier than that (thread title).

Just to point out how this can work:

https://blog.lastpass.com/2016/02/meet-the-new-lastpass-logo.html/

Lastpass*** to rebrand (to Lastpass•••|) by E*Trade (https://us.etrade.com/home) over the use of the asterisk in the brand name.

Funny to notice that in the comment you have users saying they do not like the new logo. While as I never saw the previous one, I find their logo quite cool.
People never like changes. But new people never look in the past either..

I'd prefer to keep it Nxt too, but it is now the best opportunity to tackle this potential problem with a minimum damage. It can even become a marketing opportunity. For sure it is, what is not sure is to be able to convert it this way.

Hey! NXT 2.0 rocks : this is the first scalability plan that was ever presented to me, other than vague ideas.

This plan will allow nxt to claim to be suited for full scale. No others are yet pretending that, and if they would start, they would still have more work than "us" (not counting those who may never be able to scale).

So NXT as good chances to becomes the first "Root of a load of super Novaes:D

(plus I always thought it was cool how Nxt backwards is Txn, the common abbreviation for "transaction")

TXN could be a name for the forging token.

Txn is a nice nod to the original name and transactions, but it's not very pronounceable. It needs some vowels.
Toxin?
Texan?
Tyxyn. That would be really good for Scrabble.

It's on the first page, true, but it's not the first item for me. I get three WWE news stories, then three WWE links (including their Wikipedia page and twitter), then one link for us, then two more WWE, and finally two Lego links. There's a big WWE banner top-right. So we're there but drowned out in other links. I have a news app that searches for "NXT coin", and that has so much WWE stuff it's basically useless.

I like the root concept, what about:

Radix  (latin for root)

or

Radicon (esperanto for root)

I though about going latin for the name
For NXT 2.0 new name ,I though about fire. In latin it's "Ignis"

It's a very simple world, with a simple meaning. And there is almost nothing called Ignis. I searched google and the only things that came up is a car, in production from 2000 to 2008. So i think it's good from this side.

I think if we spend some more time on search engine optimization, it will pay off.

The thing is if other people are looking for WWE etc, then the reverse can happen for them too if we do it right.

This is only true for one out of 1 million  = this is not true ! But this is a classical belief for any new entrepreneur. That's how every ad network steal value to newbies. People do not target their ads because they think : new people might be interested...

I think if we spend some more time on search engine optimization, it will pay off.

If you are thinking to terms like cryptocurency, alternative money, crypto plateform, bitcoin2.0, altcoin etc.. yes you are absolutly right.
But for a brand name, it is useless.
It is only interesting to look at search engines to avoir conflict with other strong brand name so that you become the first to be strong.

Fore sure, it would be interesting that those with websites, naturally link each others on good keywords / article. It would help these articles to show up on the search for the keyword... humm.. now I start to see an interesting use for the keyword meta tag..

About the naming thing. I don't want to drop NXT.

I want to continue to promote NXT, the NXT generation of Cryptocurrency.

Just focusing on what we have, the nxt asset exchange, but making the nrs client more userfriendly, possibly building a great web interface, doing something usefull with the aliases etc, we can make it a success.

There is not a single trully decentralised asset exchange without counterparty risk, except for NXT.


But with NXT splitting up into 2 coins there is an opportunity to give fNXT, the motherchain, a new name, and a new life.

That is the cryptoplatform part, trying to attract other childchains, new cryptocurrencies or decentralised apps to it.

It's a good idea to not use NXT name as that is already connected to a currency and asset exchange.

It must focus on being a platform. The marketing will be very different there.

rebranding can also fail and be the nail in the coffin.

Remember moneybookers, the big european competitor of paypal?

It changed name but always mentions it's old name to people as well.

I can see that happen with NXT too.

I don't think so. A carefully chosen name is a chance to get some new interest into the platform and could help to prevent legal issues.

Am I the only one who thinks that "NXT" wasn't such a smart name decision? The people even don't know how to spell it! Is it "next" or is it "n-x-t"?

Perhaps we should only focus on the name of the fNXT instead of searching a name for the whole system.
The whole system will still be called NXT for a long time anyway. NXT will be the first childchain.
If one day it becomes too difficult for conflicting legal reason, then it will be time to suggest to use the name of the "main, root, forging, staking, validating, secure, lock.." chain instead of NXT.

We must find a good name for it anyway.

Yes i agree and also with the above comments.

Lets keep NXT for the name of the currency and for the "fNXT" we will come up with some new branding.

That way, the NXT foundation does not have to change name etc.

The point is that if we didn't have to change name, we wouldn't ;) The problem is that NXT is a trademark used way before us by many others in the IT industry and outside. Soon or later there will be a cease and desist letter coming along, and we will not be prepared. If we are intelligent we can be ready and have a smooth transition from NXT to whatever new name we will have :)

There are risks with keeping the name and changing it. Why not think about both sides? By changing  the name the value built into the current name is lost. It avoids a possible situation which hasn't realized in over two years, and perhaps never will.

And why not decide a new name for fNXT first, because that is a bad name from the start. Maybe that could be trademarked, but I don't think even that is a good idea. The best holder of that name would be Jean-Luc, who is anonymous.

I haven't seen this issue affect other cryptos in any way. It seems Mark Karpeles is selling the Bitcoin trademark ( https://www.rt.com/business/161976-mtgox-sell-bitcoin-trademarks/), but I have never heard ownership of a trademark affect Bitcoin businesses in any way. If some trademark troll wishes to try to sue a decentralized currency, he would probably buy the trademark from Karpeles.

Just to keep this conversation progressing,

Does the name Blockport suit NXT 2.0 design?

Google it, it's not that widely used.

Relevant to nxt 2.0 in the sense that side chains are like ships and the main chain is like a port that "services" them.

The word port also indirectly signifies a hub of trade and commerce  8)

The word port also indirectly signifies a hub of trade and commerce  8)

Nice idea!

blockport is too long but marin analogy is good. Money  history is related to it. Its an untapped metaphorical area.

Dock sounds good... but hey, it's such an over-used generic term these days. It doesn't really give a unique feel.
Besides, just google the term "dock", i doubt it will make SEO any easier than just keeping the name Nxt.

However, i agree, this is a good line of thinking  :)

But we must also then think of consistency in NXT terms, if we go the marine analogy route, the term forging may not suffice... and i don't think "fishing" would be a popular alternative lol

Damelon has posted before about the dangers of coming into conflict over trademarking with other users of the name 'NXT'.
Here's an example of a more established business in the financial software world that is also using NXT :

Love the name, btw.  8)

It's becoming incresingly obvious to me that NXT is simply too generic, and that re-branding Nxt 2.0 might be a good idea.

As "Nxt Phoenix" was mentioned in the other thread, how about calling the new side chain (if we go this route) Phoenix, which can be abbreviated as either PHX of FNX. Then we have FXT for the forging chain, keep NXT for the NXT2 child chain to indicate continuity, and FNX for the new chain for which we do IPO. The three sound related, and having X in the name helps.

If IPO with 2.0 release,IPO participants will get Childchain token FNX or FNXT,or both?

This is what we still need to decide. The IPO should be mostly for FNX, but my suggestion is to also allocate some percentage of the forging token FXT for IPO investors. Because for a long term investor, this is the token that should be more attractive - as long as the platform exists, it is guaranteed to also exist and bring forging income. Any child chain such as NXT or FNX may some day stop being used.

If IPOer will also get som FNXT,that's we are diluting the existed Nxters' NXT by IPO,I think this is really dangerous.
I hope this IPO only for FNX,and if FNXTers want to use FNX Chain,they will need to pay FNXT for FNX,so the FNXer will get FNXT.

I would like to ask for clarification how much of this is "thinking out loud" and still open to reworking.

The key point in all of this, I think, is "lack of proper funding".

I know the first idea in crypto to solve this is doing an ICO, but there are probably also other ways to get it.

This needs to be explored before decisions are made.

No decisions have been made, this is all a discussion and a follow-up for the "expropriation" topic, which was again just a proposal. What is clear is that we can't compete without funding, and an IPO is the obvious first idea in crypto. Now, if an angel investor comes in and drops a few million USD, without asking for coins in return, there will be no need for an IPO. Or if anyone comes up with a better idea. Just asking for donations from existing stakeholders doesn't seem enough to me, and selling those donations will not help the price, even if you do it slowly to avoid dumps.

I would follow the path of Ethereum (un the business side, not the technical one - OMG).

Make it easy to deploy private and public solutions, and become popular with government and financial institutions. All the rest comes by itself.

Selling special licenses for corporate solutions is also a self funding method. But can't do that unless it is implementation friendly...

First I didn't like Phoenix (too shiny), then I started to really do (rebirth from [h]ash), then.. I found http://www.phoenix.com/pages/trademarks and http://www.phoenixframework.org/ so it is not making us progress if it becomes the main name. It could still be the name of this new ipo childchain though I have too think at this more and it it another subject.

But perhaps, we are making progress anyway.

- I see a wish to keep the X
- I see a wish to have good 3 letters, ideally the name would only be 3 letters.

And I'd like to add a basic idea : We should keep some historical meaning.

NXT meant the descendant of Bitcoin. That's what it still is : a natural genetic mutation, and not a monster clone. It was and will remain the first descendant of bitcoin even if it now has some brothers and sisters. The NXT names reflects that and this is important because that's what it is and why it exists. BCNext pointed out Bitcoin weakness and had a plan to improve them. And instead of talking he decided to act = to code. That's what has been done and what is still being continued with addressing the scalability issue.

Whatever name we choose, I feel that we must keep a symbolic link to this original and strong reason of existence. And perhaps, the presence of the X is this symbol we can all agree on.

If I look back at the list with this idea in mind, I get
XChains as a goo candidate, even a simple Xcoin or ....... Xnet

The X is a good picture for the snapshots of childchains. It is mooving in time along the validating chain that links the childchains all together.

Here is my input, I worked hard to find it. Actually, it say what NXT is at the moment and is also very easy to pronounce, remember and it also lead to a nice token name.

DROP
Decentralized Reference Online Platform

The main (FNXT) token of the platform would then be DROP!

If you like it, please tell.

Edit: one can also use variant of this, e.g. "theDROP", "oneDROP", "aDROP" for the platform name and DROP for the token.

I just came up with a suggestion : XCloud
with the whole justification behind : https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/the-madonna-solution-a-proposal-to-reinvent-nxt-in-2016-to-avoid-extinction/msg213647/#msg213647

an XCloud might have Drops that compose its elementary chain.
I didn't like drop first for a coin that you are supposed to invest in and not ... drop...
But within a crypto cloud.. that could make sense.

And now I come up with Xentity because a passphrase + one transaction creates an anonymous "eternal" identity.
And that is a specific characteristic of NXT where it is very easy to track/follow the activity of an entity. Whether it is definitely a strong selling point or not, it is certainly a selling point for some use cases and a reality anyway. It is part of the philosophy you have to adhere with when you use NXT.

 I hate to beleaguer the point, but if NXT is so generic, why can't we just keep it? It sounds like there's very little risk of being sued If everybody else is using it too.

Here's an example of a more established business in the financial software world that is also using NXT :

https://www.blackbaud.com/fundraising-and-relationship-management/raisers-edge-nxt

Love the name, btw.  8)

It's becoming incresingly obvious to me that NXT is simply too generic, and that re-branding Nxt 2.0 might be a good idea.

 

 I hate to beleaguer the point, but if NXT is so generic, why can't we just keep it? It sounds like there's very little risk of being sued If everybody else is using it too.

Exactly my point.
Legal issues dont worry me one bit with the name or else WWE could be getting sued by others also.

The only real advantage to a name change is to avoid confusion with other things using NXT and to make us easier to find on google i guess.

I'll repeat: Trademark law only can be enforced against where a trademark can lose market share, which means there is provable ground for confusion.

In trademarks, this is mainly done by registering a trademark in the Nice Classification system: http://www.wipo.int/classifications/nice/en/

So we see the WWE NXT Trademark is classified under Nice classes 9, 16, 25, 28 and 41, which roughly translates to merchandising goods and entertainment services: https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/trademarks/008857369
So no infringement with us possible, unless we want to go into the T-shirt selling business as Nxt :) This one has no reason to do anything against us.

We see the LEGO NXT Trademark classified under nothing, because the NXT element was never registered and the LEGO and MINDSTORMS parts are registered separately.
So no problems there.

There are others that might well be a problem, like https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/trademarks/W01293747, where there is a link to business software.
Not saying that there is, but that's the way it would work.

If you have followed the whole (weird and mostly incorrect) Antonopolous trademark discussion the last days, you will see he referred to "failure to protect" and this is indeed one of the main reasons cease and desists are handed out: http://www.inta.org/TrademarkBasics/FactSheets/Pages/LossofTrademarkRightsFactSheet.aspx

Not to annoy people, but to protect trademark distinctiveness. Contrary to what many people seem to think, these companies probably couldn't care less about what we are doing. They care about their IP, just like we do. And to protect that IP, they need to take action or lose it.

At the moment, we are so very small and niche that this is not a problem. As we continue to grow, and be reported on in the news (that's the aim, isn't it? To grow and be noticed?) we will become a problem for these companies that have invested in their IP and they may well defend those rights. If they have registered properly, that will be no contest, as they have the law on their side.

I hope these posts at least educate a few about how these things work. There seems to be a lot of confusion about copyright, trademarks and licenses on the forums. It's not all that hard if you remember that people, not always for reasons that are bad, want to protect what they invested in. We do the same, otherwise we would not be having these discussions. :)

New Name Ideas of Nxt (easier to find on google f.e.)
« Reply #214 on: March 31, 2016, 04:50:02 am »

What about nxtwork or neXtwork for the platform?

Edit: ops, looks like Juniper is using that name... Shame, I liked it. :(

And Divixion

Division
Division is splitting into equal parts or groups. It is the result of "fair sharing".

So everyone is equal in nxt ecosystem.

Just thought of the name Cause i was playing ubisoft the Division ;)

Sorry, but I don't like XOcean.
I like the idea behind Administration Network

The name Xocean is not marketed except from a team of treasure hunters who gained some press because of a very strange shape they found at the bottom of the Baltic sea. A hardly natural rocks that could well be an ancient UFO. No trademark conflict here, easy to write once pronounced, easy to remember.

Nxtwork, I like the idea too, but the name lacks imagination to me. Nxtmesh or Nxt.. something that is not over hyped and means a large environment looks good to me. But I'm not natively speaking english so great words not overused with the same metaphor do not pop up easily. If it fits, I think we can use the X to shorten the word to replace and remind NXT.

Xocean had this meaning too, with a strong anchor in reality. Unlike a Xuniverse, an ether, a vacuum or a mythological reference (I'm not saying these reference are wrong, but everyone uses them, so if something refreshing comes up it is welcome).

Division, is a clean word, but it means also split and conflict. It reminds me the Legion of Evildave, but Legion means war & blood !

The animal reference can be good, because animals, even scary ones, are quite friendly. We learn about them when we are very young so they are easy to remember and are always welcome in our minds. But again, this is used a lot, and I would use that kind of reference when there is nothing in the product itself that can be used in the brand to easily distinguish it from the rest. Animals are very good to build good brands around consumable goods: food, clothes.

This morning I looked at Xian
X information and administration network

from wikipedia: Xi’an is a large city and capital of Shaanxi Province in central China. Once known as Chang’an (Eternal Peace), it marks the Silk Road’s eastern end  :)

I'd love to see more support from chinese. Because I only believe in indirect adoption which needs an army of websites using the tech behind the scene. Solving very specific people life issues thanks to the tech and then doing all the marketing job of explaining how to start using Nxt. I do not believe in the general coin approach. The coin that is more than a coin. Because people are happy enough with their credit cards. Once the global system crashes, then yes, the alternative super coin approach can work for some cryptos, but if it does in only 10 or 20 years nothing will happens before.

I'd better see, and I'd prefer to see, a slow but solid adoption trend that will end up in the replacement of the current system rather than a world wide chaos. My bet is that the old system can not compete with the solutions that are being made possible since Satochi's invention. But they are not yet there ! Nxt only contributes to enable them. But the hard work still has to be done.

Some people here seem to look at marketing as a magic wand, like business people in the 2000 looked at the internet (and now blockchains). But there are no magic wands. There are only incredibly amazing effects once matches are found between need and solution. You find the matches by luck & research. With repeated trials and errors !

That's also why I do not believe in private blockchain because there can not be more trials & errors in the private area than there will be in the public one. So creativity will be stronger in that area. And creativity is not only creating blockchains or tangle. It is also finding things to solve with that people already want (consciously or not) to solve !

IMHO there are some really good names in that list! But to conduct a vote there should be some "preprocessing" of the list entries first, maybe Damelon or EvilDave could do this. There are some entries which certainly aren't suitable, because of legal issues and the whole purpose is to avoid legal issues in the future.  ::)

And we should think about if we want to have "NXT" (in any form) in the new name or not.

How sadly it is, I think it's better to don't use Nxt. It's infected to much. Nxt is the childchain on the new "fnxt", so it will keep living and hopefully get better. :)

I think you are right. New name gets new interest and leaves the old wounds behind us.
Sadly alot of people are always reminding the negative news, even if it was not true.

I like Xonar, because the domains are not all taken lol.

I don't like the names like META and BASE because they can be wrongly understood by people.
The new name will probably not become the new META name, cause META and BASe have a whole different meaning which is widly used.

LEPTON is funny but looks like LIPTON (tea brand).
PARTON is like PARDON (pardon me Sir ;))

Don't know what you guys think, but I think we have to start from here (again) with names that are not widely used or are close to an existing brand name when you pronounce or spell it.

EXOS from Exoskeleton

TANDEM - Tandem (or in tandem) is an arrangement in which a team of machines, animals or people are lined up one behind another, all facing in the same direction

TARU - Tandem running is a social learning phenomenon seen mostly in ants, by which one ant leads another native ant from the nest to the food source it has found. Tandem running is also used to find and choose better, new nest sites to which the colony can emigrate

ECHO for the forging token.

From echolocation.

DOLPHIN or BAT (animal that uses echolocation) for the childchain token.

CORTEX for the Mainchain token (FXT)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cortex


And than the child chain transactions can be something like an impulse or signal to the CORTEX.

We want to use the name for the FXT promotion starting 1-7.

STAKING/STAKE will be the new word that is used in stead of FORGING/FORGE.
NXT Foundation said that Forging can also have different meanings that can be described as negative, like some community members also addressed.

Good point, let's eliminate the ones that are unclaimable.
I can work on that later on today.

Also wondering if anyone has a better name for our FXT (Mainchain Stake) token compared to the list we already have?

The main chain could be called "consensus chain" or "block generating chain", to avoid using forge, and to avoid calling it main, as from a user point of view the FNX child chain should be the main one, where day to day transactions happen.

I like the Block Generating Chain. Nice and simple and the user knows what the token is used for.

BGC / BGEN

Consensus, the CON token can be made negative (pros and cons) ;)

We need a new name for the "block generating chain" token at first. NXT is not an option.

Nxt 1.0 has token NXT

Nxt 2.0 needs to have 2 tokens with 2 new names:
1. "FXT" -> Block Generating Token
2. "FNX" -> Transactional Token for the Child Chain

The focus is first on the Block Generating Token (FXT), because of the coming 1-7-2016 promotion.

We can be the boss of the token-hype and call it TOKEN!  :)

+1

I like it: Leave the FXT chain name simple: with "Block Generating Chain" and the fee simple: "Token"

"Pay a token for your block to be generated on the chain"


1. I'll try to put a vote up tonight with the discussed names on it for the FXT token.

2. The name for the FNX token will be discussed later on, together with the name of Nxt as a whole (nxt.org etc.)

ChainFX and TokenFX?

Looks a bit like FXT and FNX and chains will be the key feature of Nxt 2.0.

Forging multiple chains will be the mining of the future, especially with the Nxt Foundation who is having meetings with business and governments about private blockchains.

ChainFX and TokenFX are free from trademarks.

And FX stands for Special Effects and Nxt 2.0 will surely be special!!  :)

I have made a 1st poll:
New Name for the FXT (Block Generating Chain) token
https://www.mynxt.info/polls/

---
1. After this poll the first names will fall of the list.
--
2. If you have better names they will be used for the 2nd poll.
---
3. Finally there is a last poll where the best of the 1st and 2nd will come together.

Please vote! thnx

The next posts can be used to think of names for the second vote.

I saw in another thread that Ron spoke about the name Crafting instead of forging, because of minecraft.

In Elder Scrolls Tamriel, also crafting is used to create things (in our case blocks).
The place where that happens is the Crafting Station.

Why not call the FXT token (CRAFT) and the FXT chain (STATION).

the BLOCKS are making the TRAIN longer... ;)

AgAmi- in Transkrit, one of the oldest languages on earth, means "next". In these ancient times, there were no money controlled by authorities (as crypto now), there were items (NXT) to transfer value, just without PC and internet :)

May I suggest allowing more time until the poll ends so more people can cast their vote?
(It's a really important decision, so we shouldn't be in a hurry with this one).
Also, for the final poll in NRS, could we allow there to be at least a small bunch of options (five?, I don't know)
And maybe, a minimal quorum should be met for the poll to be accepted...

By the way Wolffang, I really appreciatte all the fantastic job you are doing for Nxt! :)
