if flash already is trademarked blaze is ok too. maybe a new word instead of glow, make it glo or o3b instead of orb.

loom


this thread will go on forever.

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.

True and I don't think platform is a good word. It looks very centralized and proprietary to me. Isn't it just a crypto network ?

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"?

I have been using FXT for the forging token in the code at least.

Bad idea to change  a brand built with more than 2 years time.
Should try to strong it rather than to discard IMO.

Reticulum Pecunia Numerus, RPN - digital currency network in Latin.

WOW, i love it!

But we are not (mainly) a currency. Replace "pecunia" with ecosystem, platform, or other words I didn't find in latin :)

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.

I like chain FX :)

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)

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