"In any science-fiction movie, anywhere in the galaxy, currency is referred to as 'credits.'"

How about Zeni  Wink

Some day people will pay in nanosatoshi Smiley

Is that even possible?  I thought a satoshi was the smallest increment of BTC possible in the code, i.e. .000 000 01 BTC

It's my understanding that all it would take would be to update the client to handle more decimal places; there is no inherent property of Bitcoin that mandate we stop at the eighth decimal place..

I suppose you are right, but would everyone accept the change?  It seems like if you make any fundamental changes to the client like that many people will be distrustful of them?  Also, it seems unlikely that we'll ever need to do that.  Eight decimal places should be enough divisibility for any sort of future I can imagine.  But who can tell...

And 640KB will be more than anyone will ever need...

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

I like the name bitcoins, but I see your point with using credits instead. But how do you intend to shorten credits?

"cds"  Because that would not cause any confusion.
