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.

Netcoins, NxtCoins, feels a bit the same if you pronounce it.

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.

NXT platform -> NXT Universe or simply Universe

fNXT blockchain -> pool
fNXT tokens -> drops
