Obyte (or Obyte) is like O2 (O as Oxygen) or O-type blood. Even visually, O is round, 0 is not.

Congrats on the name change, good decision!

Byteball is now Obyte

-snip-

In my opinion, Obyte is a much better name than Byteball. I am wondering what the short will be? GByte should be replaced by OBytes since it confuses people a lot.

IMHO, ticker should be compatible with ISO 4217 currency code, so maybe XOB (since XGB is conflicting).

Why not just plainly OBYTE? How does the ISO currency code work, can only be 3 characters? XOB doesn't sound too bad either though Cheesy

That'll take a while to get used to Shocked

The agency we eventually selected is Skriptor Zigilla, the #1 European Naming Agency with impressive international clients like Oppo, Heineken, ING, Philips, Roche, Shell, Vodafone, Bayer and Novartis.
If that's the selling argument, it doesn't make any sense: those companies (or at least the ones I know) are much older than Skriptor Zigilla is, and several of the company names are the names of the creator. They may be clients for sub-products, but those aren't the names everyone recognizes.

It looks a lot like O2.


I'll probably get used to it, give me some time Cheesy

So they paid the #1 naming agency to come up with the name but then paid some internet rando to design the logo?

https://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/design-cool-fresh-logo-obyte-830058

Seems legit...

Maybe not the worst name from an SEO standpoint, but there are a number of results of you Google "obyte", including the one linked above. Anyway, I don't have any ogigabytes anymore, but good luck with it obyters.

Is that bad? Logo is just one part of whole visual identity. You know what you can't find any results on Google, MD5 hash of Obyte, but that is not great name. It is normal that short names already have results on Google.

To create the new visual identity we are going to hire an external agency with extensive experience in rebranding.

Obey was some cool stuff tho. Check Exit through the giftshop, has some info on him.

Not used to the new name yet, but certainly better then Byteball.

Thing is tho that the token is actually bytes, not byteball. The most simple name of all, bytes.

I vote for XMB for the ticker and denomination in MB's.

That's not ISO 4217 compatible. Reserved ISO 4217 currency codes start with country code or end with country code (virtual currency that start with X). If MByte then maybe XMB. There is already cryptocurrency called MOBI.
According to this only 676 currencies (26*26) can be created. Too little for the crypto world.  Grin I think they should rewrite their standards.

Dear BYTEBALL community. We are pleased to inform you about our project https://bbchats.top/ which logs all important telegram chats related to BYTEBALL . We believe that BYTEBALL Chats will be a valuable addition to the BYTEBALL ecosystem. During the work of the site, we have already received a large number of positive feedback from community members. The project is under active development. The project has its own team of programmers, ready at any time to solve new technical problems and make new improvements.

What is implemented at the moment:
You can read your favorite sites in a convenient form for you through https://bbchats.top/
The site is optimized for work and on mobile devices. There is a search by keyword and date. It is possible to read the chat you want in your native language using Google Translate. The translation is not perfect, but it will allow you to receive the latest news as quickly as possible from the first sources.

In the near future, we plan to add the ability to share a specific telegram post in social networks. On the one hand, this will allow you to share interesting content with your friends and subscribers, and on the other hand, it will positively influence the development of BYTEBALL ’s popularity in general.

There is a lot of work ahead, we have planned a huge number of interesting and useful improvements. If you have any suggestions for improving our site, please write - we will try to take everything into account and use it in the further development of the site.

If you think that some important chat related to BYTEBALL is missing on our website, please write and we will add it.

I like Obyte. Nice rebranding IMO.
There is currently a discussion on Reddit on the idea of Blackbytes being rebranded as well.

https://www.reddit.com/r/obyte/comments/ah97m5/rebranding_rebranding/

As I've stated there, I like Blackbytes as a name, so I'd rather keep it. However if the team should decide to rebrand Blackbytes too, perhaps in the fear that "black" bytes could eventually be associated to black market, I’d suggest to perhaps go for Pbytes - Private Bytes, especially as P is the next alphabet letter after O - so we’d have Obytes and Pbytes.
Still, I prefer Blackbytes.

Also, the token has not been renamed, it still is 'bytes'. There are no Obytes, just the Obyte-network.

Easy to get that wrong as Bitcoin signifies both the network and the token (tho one might argue that a satoshi is actually the token).

Yeah, Ethereum has it more clear than Bitcoin, SI base unit is Ether (ETH) and smallest unit on mainnet is wei.
Some say that Bitcoin (big B) is the platform and bitcoin (BTC) with small b is the SI base unit, satoshi is the smallest unit on mainnet. Ligtning network has even smaller unit.

Obyte is the platform, gigabyte (GBYTE) is the SI base unit, byte is the smallest unit on mainnet.

Honestly I'm not impressed because of this obsession with "byte" name. It would be better to come up with a more original name. This "byte" thing is pretty popular word and a number of cryptocurrencies already use it:






And now Obyte is supposed to catch people's attention? Nah.

The project is run too much like a company with Tony as CEO hiring some people for some positions and all important decisions are made with no feedback from community whatsoever. It's all behind the scenes during "board meetings" and community is just graciously struck with a "decision".

How about doing it this way:

Hey,

Dear Byteball Community, we listened to your suggestions and want to rebrand the project with a new name. Please give your proposition and we will put the most promising to a vote.  Byteball is cool and we can have voting via bot. After voting is completed we will decide the new name based on your votes and our preference.

 Wouldn't that be a cool way to do it? Of course it would be. But instead we have this kind of "I'm in charge and I will decide" way of doing things. And here we are with another "Byte" cryptocurrency...

Same can be said about all the cryptocurrencies with Bit in the name. I haven't looked into your examples, but you seem to forget that byte is a core thing about this platform and it is not part of the name just for fun or to be cool like other kids on the block.

Haters gonna hate, no matter what you do.

If you do the vote then you get names like Crypto McCryproface (google Boaty McBoatface - if you didn't get the reference).

But such name wouldn't win in the voting process. I don't think that the majority of the community would vote for such a stupid name. That's the point of voting - get rid of bad things that people don't like and see what people like.

The first thing that I thought about when seeing "Obyte" was: "What "O" stands for? Many people will ask themselves this question and nobody will have the answer because it apparently doesn't mean anything.
