Anyone who holds or is thinking of buying SBC will care what the "religious wackos" think if/when SBC starts getting dumped becuase of poor choice of logo. Horns is definitely not a good idea; people might associate it with devil, and the "S" with Satan, and red with the devil.  This will deter 2 kinds of people from SBC:
1. Christian / religious types.
2. Non- religous types, don't give a damn about the horns per se, but even they might be worried that the horns will scare off the religious types and therefore limit the appeal of the coin.
The only person around here nutty enough to make that association would be Luke Jr.

Hi Hazard,

Not sure where you are from, but I think anyone from a western country (such as USA.... maybe not Chinese) would instantly make an association with the devil/Satn from a red S with horns.  If you're not sure, go ask 10 people from the USA if they have ever seen any image of a red devil with horns. 

I think the possible negatives of the horns outweigh any possible benefits. The logo won't by itself make SBC a success but it could by itself prevent or limit SBC's success.  Why risk possibly alienating potential buyers for very little in return (an arguably better looking design)?

Don't know where you're from, but I am an American Christian-quite devout, actually-and I made no such association.  I do prefer the one without horns, but the only "Christians" that will be put off by the appearance of horns and a red "S" are the same ones who see Satan in modern culture in general.  They are a fringe element and not exemplary of the average Christian--We're talking Pentecostals or some of the charismatic churches.

Still, as I said, I do prefer the one that isn't so horny . . . LOL!

Hi Cats,

I'm also from the US. Haven't lived there in many years though. Well, I'm surprised you did not make the Satan association from a big red S with horns.  I would have thought 10 out of 10 Americans would have, but looks like you proved me wrong!  Maybe it needs a pitchfork and flames too! Guess I'm out of touch.

Well, I'll be locking in profits on SBC if the horn logo is chosen (but would still hold some SBC)... so if it is horns, good luck with that!

Hi everyone, I wanted to make a comment about the logos. I was in class while the voting was taking place but I feel my opinion needs to be put in anyway.

One of the major selling points of this coin is that it is meant to be "stable" even though the other cryptos are so volatile.

I think it is important to stay true to this theme. While the logo with the spikes or "horns" look more fancy and flashy, I think that is the exact problem with it - flashy things always get stale quickly. It looks cool and edgy now, but overtime it will be looked at as lame and the spikes seen as pointless.

The one without the spikes actually helps sell the theme of "stability", because the design is timeless. If it has to have something sticking out, why not maybe try something similarly shaped to one of the sticks that stick out of a dollar sign, or bitcoin symbol?

Agreed, zavtra!


Anyone else having difficulty in getting a good connection and good mining results with either coin-base.org, or SBC Cryptocult?

I'm suddenly getting tons of "Found block for pool 0!" with no--or few--"Accepted" or simply a loss of connection.

1. It's red
2. It's an S
3. It has "horns"

To me personally its not problem at all but the USA is a very christian nation. Maybe the average christian would never associate these things, and China I'm sure could care less.

I also sort of like design 1, it has a nice clean feel to it. When it's shrunk down it won't be confusing about what the "S" is.

edit: after looking at both again, the horns aren't that intrusive. Calling them "horns" and associating it with anything other than little spikes on a font is ridiculous. Look at any Serif font, you get the same sort of thing. This is just tasteful styling.

Having the two side by side it looks like the new logo is a lot more professionally done

There's also a third option



I think it looks a little bland. Both are still an improvement over the original though.

Yes, but having both potential new logos side by side:



Both look professional.

I'll be honest though, I also liked the way the old logo touched in the middle. Maybe we should somehow incorporate that as well? Broken up, the 'S' just looks like 2 sideways 'U's.

Yes, I like it as well actually, due to staying faithful to the original as well. I still personally would stay away from the spikes although I'd say my opinion is considered moot at this point.

Could you drop a hint as to what some of these big things are? Wink

Sorry, the "horns" or spikes distract from the "S" logo.  It doesn't look like an "S," it looks like two sideways U-Turn signs or something.

I believe artos' original logo is better than the two new ones.  Why not just polish it up and use it?

Glad that there is such interest over what the logo should be. As we begin to ramp up marketing efforts, it would be better to change the logo sooner rather than later. While I do have a soft spot for the old logo, it is lacking in many ways.

What about a logo that is identical in structure and proportions to the original, but styled in the way of the new one?

I think that will be fine. The shading of the new logo looks very good to have.

Why is the S split into 2 U's anyway? Does it signify anything? It sort of reminds me of this:



When I think "stable" I think of something more square or round:







I'm referring to the styling and not the color/textures just to be clear. The S's that are open/leave the colored area could just hit the coin boarder instead in our case. Just my opinion though.  Smiley
