Bitsquare bounty: 0.5 BTC for new brand name


#230

Regarding .com domains, while it is true that the were historically associated with commercial enterprises, today that is no longer the case. In the States, it is typically thought of as the ‘default’ ending for a URL, as many people who don’t bother to look it up assume it stands for ‘computer’. As far as brand protection goes, owning the .com goes a long way. Google owns most variants on their domain, so that typos do not send unwitting users to malicious sites. Wikipedia’s strategy is to simply redirect to .org, but they own the .com. It is advised to look into domains for all your brand candidates before making any announcements.

On the surface, the first two core values listed, openness, and protection of privacy, appear to be contradictory. I realize that it’s protection of the individual’s privacy that is ensured by doing so in a open manner, but finding a single word that can convey that distinction while also conveying all of those values is difficult. Perhaps PrivaSee? Maybe, although I’m not overly fond of it, and it is taken—although parked by a GoDaddy registrant. Not a completely ruled out route. Oh, Synergy is a buzzword so prevalent it has not had substantive meaning for years.

Since most of the community suggestions are lacklustre, I suggest you weigh the core values, and pick one that is the most essential, or one value that all the other values can be derived from. From that essential value, look for synonyms, translations, related words, associated historical figures, etc, and compile a list. See which ones on that list naturally have double letters, consist of phonemes that are common in most languages, and also play around with alternate spellings, adding double letters or swapping with functionally similar letters (e.g., ‘k’ and ‘c’), etc. No one complains that Google, derived for ‘googolplex’, is not ‘Googol’. Note that there is a limit to how far a word can be warped before it becomes disagreeable, and smaller words get uglier quicker than medium length words. Note that a lot of brand names consist of two-syllable words, in addition to the double-letter observation. Prosody, metre, internal rhyme, and so on are other angles to take when crafting a brand name.

If you are seeking to create an umbrella brand, then that’s another matter. In fact, one of the umbrella brand’s projects could bear the deex name, but that only delays the issue of the umbrella’s brand. Umbrella brand names, like holding and parent companies, are not as important as the names of the projects. An alright name for a umbrella brand in cutting edge technology I suppose could be Digital Renaissance, of which the .com is parked. The .org is listed at $1138, though.

Whatever route you go, I am glad to have been of some service in raising points of consideration, as I was disappointed by the almost complete lack of discussion and constructive comments on this thread. Best luck to you.

Liberabit

Explanation:
This comes from Latin
Veritas vos liberabit - the truth shall set you free
from my perspective, it has the philosophy right and even fortuitously have the “bit” in there somehow.
I like it so much, I even decided to purchase org, info and io domains that were available as I did with Kadabra (my other entry).
Of course, if the name is chosen, i would transfer the domains to you.

Thanks again for your thoughtful comment!

To focus to one term is of course hard but I think the main aspect will be around value exchange/transfer.
What the Internet did for information, Bitcoin did for value. Enabling free exchange and transfer, open, permission-less and without intermediation.
What Bitsquare wants to add is to make that value exchange possible over boundaries (exchange Bitcoin against Fiat, other altcoins, human work). All the other possible applications can be derived from that.

Flow” is a good name from me to represent that. Though we have not found a really good term with that.
Biology might be a good resource for inspiration as biological systems are flow systems.
They are often structured in a highly decentralized and autonomous network, leading to resilience, sustainability, adaptability, flexibility.

Rhizome (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhizome, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhizome_(philosophy) ) would be an interesting term in that direction, but it is too intellectual.
Myceleum is unfortunately already taken. :wink:

my suggestion: Crypto rainbow

I think a rainbow is a nice picture and represents the beauty of nature and our colourful world.
It is a strong symbol for many things, including liberty, equal rights for everyone, …
the rainbow links two points (respectively two traders), but you can’t really find the location of the startpoint and the endpoint, so they stay unclear. And no one can stop it or shut it down.
the different colors of the rainbow stay for the different currencies you can exchange with each other.

maybe a little bit too spiritual instead of technical, but I like the picture and the connotations :slight_smile:

How about Fungus (mushroom).
It refers to Mycelium in some way.
And it sounds like fungible, what is an important characteristic of cryptocurrencies.
Fungibility means the interchangeability of goods or assets so I think it fits good for an exchange.

And I like the sound of the word :slight_smile:

Physarum

You wanted flow and biology. Here it is.
Physarum policefalum is an amazing mold that 'flows" to wherever it finds food. It’s cytoplasm, observed under the microscope, presents amazing flows, characterized as back-and-forth (shuttle streaming). It is a single cell (gigantic in size with many nuclei) organism, yet visible to the naked eye.

For example, a team of Japanese and Hungarian researchers have shown P. polycephalum can solve the Shortest path problem. When presented with more than two food sources, P. polycephalum apparently solves a more complicated transportation problem. With more than two sources, the amoeba also produces efficient networks.

i just got the .io domain, which i will transfer, if selected.
if not, i will own a cool domain for the future. Thanks for the logic suggestion!

Here are a couple of more shots in the Dark that probably will miss the mark, but what the heck:

Based on comments, here are some more suggestions that focus on flow…

Osmosx
OsmosEx
Osmox

All derived from the word osmosis.

And:

Diffusex.

From diffuse, to spread out over a large area…

Thanks
