Ardor vs. Nxt & legacy branding
« on: July 01, 2016, 05:05:52 pm »

I've been wondering about the future use of the name "Nxt" as we move to 2.0 aka Ardor.  Clearly there are worthwhile rebranding efforts with Ardor, but how much will the new name replace the identity of Nxt?  I initially thought Ardor was more of a release-name / name for the snapshot tokens.  Is the intention to get rid of the name Nxt forever and let it die with the old 1.9 chain when Ardor is released, or will Ardor also continue to be known as Nxt 2.0?

Thinking about what it means for nxtportal.org and other sites (nxt.org, myNxt.info, etc.)

I agree on this, we need to continue to use NXT alongside as a brand. Otherwise we would kill a valuable asset, 3 years of flawless Blockchain running ! A lot of people hear about NXT everyday  8)

Ardor powered by NXT

I think Ardor will mostly be a backoffice blockchain, used by 'forgers', interesting for businesses that want to run their own blockchains.
The average crypto user won't have to see much of Ardor, won't use its GUI. The average crypto user will be using the new (first) childchain 'FNX', and the current NXT blockchain will run and be maintained for at least two additional years from now. Who knows what will happen during these two years? Impossible to tell imo.

I wouldn't worry, time will tell. But eventually NXT will probably fade out when the new childchain(s) slowly take over. The name 'NXT' still has the potential of legal problems apparently.
