1 BTC = Bitcoin
0.01 BTC = Knob
0.001 BTC = Pube
0.000001 BTC = Fried Egg
0.00000001 BTC = Hamster

I'm sure we can all agree?

An Octbit...
+1 on that but i personally think it sounds way better as "Octobit". "Bit" is obvious to be used and "Octo" stand for the eight sign after the decimal point.
+1 for You Too... Smiley

I can't beleive no one's hit this one yet...

Since it's a digital currency my mind warps right back to the original Tron (I'm such a geek) where everything was "bits" and "bytes", therefore everything that is a sub-BitCoin is a Byte or ByteCoin.


But a Byte is made up of 8 bits soooo this makes no sense for the geeks among us.  When talking bits and bytes...bits are smaller.

On another note we can refer to 8 BTC as a BYTE!!!!  1024 BTC = a KILOBYTE etc. etc. Bet no one thought of that yet!

Millionnaires and billionnaires will be replaced with Bytennaires and Kilobytennaires LoL  Can't wait to see who becomes the world's first  Megabytennaire (1,048,576 BTC)

Not even!  This is where the dollar is better. (makin' straws, giving off heat while burning, and wiping your ass with!)

LittleBit and the Nanogroschen idea sounds great. Grin

What about Coint, Bent, Boint or Bint?

It's a mixture of Cent and BitCoin,

If the time comes when botnets are mining all coins we can honor this by naming the smallest unit: BotCoin. Cheesy

Do you want to get rid of all your bitcoins? This is the official trash address: 13vbLvM1Gb3fY5z15Mq1v1eCEjAxL8cPPs Smiley

You got math in my geek logic. Smiley~

I know the mathematical breakdown doesn't add up (ha) but I was going for more of the asthetic of the naming convention. I was trying to avoid the 8 sub decimal naming schemes that keeps cropping up. Interesting and well thought out as they may be, but for the mainstream to get on board I would think that we need to keep it with a "dollars & cents" mindset.

It will make the assimilation....errr...I mean..."migration" process, of the average users a bit easier if it's in a format they can already identify with. Therefore, Bits and Bytes.

Will draw for BitCoins (EyeBleedInk.com) / Donations won't hurt my feelings Smiley  - 16RTVas2rS26xJ9SAH3fhppCHHHsvUZmtX

I vote for "cent". Just because people already know what cents are.

How about a "chimp"

10^-9 = 1 Chimp
10^-6 = 1 Orangutang
10^-3 = 1 Babboon
10^1 = Bitcoin

Pretty simple, I think it'll catch on

Cent.

And shift the decimal point six places so that it matches regular currencies. No regular currency is divisible to eight places. We talk about thousands or millions or billions of dollars or francs or euros, not megadollars or petafrancs. Millibits or microbits might work for geeks but not for average people.

This.

What name would you give to the smallest unit of bitcoin (0.00000001)? sat. What name would you give to 100 sats? bit. 1 bit = 1 uBTC. 1,000,000 bits = 1 BTC. It's bits
