Voting closed, see this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=764976.msg8633932#msg8633932

Ok I want to settle this Cryptonite naming issue once and for all and I think the only way to do that is by letting people vote on it. Apparently some people think the name Cryptonite is too similar to the name Cryptonote, which is the technology behind a family of altcoins like Bytecoin and Monero. There is also a PoW algorithm called CryptoNight typically used by Cryptonote coins. Cryptonite has no relation to any of these technologies and some people think the name should be changed to avoid confusion.

Personally I am very reluctant to change the name because Cryptonote and CryptoNight are only names for technologies and algorithms, there isn't actually any altcoin with a name which sounds like Cryptonite. I also don't want to go to all the effort of changing the name if the new name isn't something original and unlikely to increase confusion instead of dampening it. I also quite like the logo and branding we have now, a reasonable amount of time and money was spent on it, but I don't think this debate will end until we vote on it.

New name voting options:

1) Cryptonite (keep same name)
2) Minicoin (base on mini-blockchain scheme)
3) Crypton (simply remove the 'ite')
4) Other

Voting will be done by posting in this thread, just post which option you want to vote for. If you choose option 4 please specify the name you want. To prevent spam votes you must have registered more than a month ago and have at least 100 posts in order to vote. Voting will last for 5 days 48 hours and then I'll add up all the numbers. I reserve the right to cancel the name change if I don't like the result.

Some things to keep in mind: Minicoin is a good descriptive name but it was also the name of an old altcoin which now seems to be dead, but remnants of it remain on the internet and at the top of Google search results. Clipcoin is a decent choice because it is compatible with the existing currency code (XCN) and hasn't been used before, but I personally don't think Clipcoin is a very professional name at all.

My vote is to keep the same name (option 1).

The name should be more related to your main innovation- the mini block chain.

I like Minicoin OK, but would be open to hearing some other ideas along these lines. Smiley

Cryptonite is a cool name, but it is somewhat unrelated to your cryptocurrency.

Either way I guess I don't really care..

The current options were the most popular suggestions in the main thread, but if you can't give a suggestion I can't really count your vote.

How about Diminutive Coin.

Sound more classy than mini coin. But both mean the same thing.

Diminutive means
extremely or unusually small.

Cryptonite is a cool name, but it is somewhat unrelated to your cryptocurrency.
The name doesn't always have to be descriptive of the product. How does the name Apple help describe Apple computers? If you must apply some sort of meaning to the name Cryptonite, I like to think of it as a powerful and exotic substance, in the same way you might think of Unobtanium as a super rare substance, but obviously Cryptonite is not so rare. It is very exotic compared to all other coins though, it's very different in a fundamental way, and that difference gives it unparalleled scalability/power.

there isn't actually any altcoin with a name which sounds like Cryptonite.

That's true.  As long as you don't count CryptoKnight - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=274766.0

Yeah but that's a dead coin just like Minicoin. Edit: doesn't even look like it was released actually.

1) Cryptonite

(I think minicoin is alright though, just not worth the hassle to change)

I think option 1 isn't good as it may confuse people whatever you are talking about - a coin or an algorithm.
If you'd like to know my point of view - I'd say that Minicoin is good name for a coin.
Diminutive Coin sounds a lit bit pathetic. Minicoin sounds much better.

Had been away, so didn't have much of a chance to put in some comments or additional name options in the ann thread ahead of this post.
In any case, I'm picking option 4. With the motto of 'endless possibilities ahead', and how the mini blockchain breaks free of the restrictions of the typical (bloated) blockchain implementations, my suggestion is nebarita, which is esperanto for unbounded.

Cheers,
~ Myagui

I'd go for MiniCoin

I think Monero (XMR) is very interesting.
