Boolberry (BBR) has served as our coin name for short while now. But as we grow as a community, we have come to an important stage of development where a rebrand is needed in order to progress as needed.

In today's overcrowded market of cryptocurrency being easily brandable is essential to staying relevant. As a community we welcome every new opportunity to reach our goal of becoming the world’s premier anonymous and completely secure coin.

Today we're launching this poll to include three selected rebrand names that we're sure will be a new path and inspiration to our project.

This rebranding is the first of several big developments in the works for our community. We've never been more excited about our direction.

If you are a BBR community member or supporter, we welcome your VOTE for the new Boolberry brand.  You can cast your vote in this thread by simply posting a response with the name you like most. Voting in this way will eliminate votes from sockpuppets, trolls, and other non-community members. The poll will last 48 hours, ending at 10:00 PM UTC Friday September 19th.

We welcome you to participate!


Rune

    
Hints at technology:

Rune was an ideographic or pictographic symbol of some cosmological principle or power, and to write a rune was to invoke and direct the force for which it stood. Indeed, in every Germanic language, the word “rune” (from Proto-Germanic *runo) means both “letter” and “secret” or “mystery,” and its original meaning, which likely predated the adoption of the runic alphabet, may have been simply “(hushed) message.”[1]

*1 syllable, 4 letters – easy to remember.
*Does have a feeling of currency: "The price of the item is seven runes".
*Unique name in technology world.
*Have already secured domain Runeproject.com    
*Easily brandable    
*Ease of pronunciation
*Suitable to international audience

Secore
    
*Hints at technology:

Our main idea "Security + core + currency = Secore” and ore/or/ora implies gold is several languages.    

*2 syllables, 6 letters – easy to remember (Pronounced Se’core)
*Does have a feeling of currency: "The price of the item is seven secores".
*Sounds interesting and technological.    
*Easily brandable
*Ease of pronunciation
*Suitable to international audience



Vortex

*Hints at technology:
  
Vortex meaning “circle” or “ring”. Medical term meaning “to mix” by means of a rapid whirling or circular motion. Alternate spelling of vertex, latin word for crown of head or farthest point up from base.

*2 syllables, 6 letters - easy to remember
*Strong, masculine and scientific name.
*Easily brandable
*Ease of pronunciation
*Suitable to international audience

I would cast my vote towards the Rune,  although I believe we have pretty strong and great options here.

May I suggest that you also assign available domain names to each, since that is half the branding right there.

Why no option to keep the Boolberry name?  I think it's a great name and much better by far than the 3 options.

Boolberry has been a controversial brand name from the start. There are a lot of reasons for this that have been discussed many times over the last several months. Instead of going into details about this in the voting thread, feel free to PM me or Bitcrea or Crypto_Zoidberg for more information.

My post got deleted for expressing the exact same concern. There should be an option to retain Boolberry.

Look, I'll post this once, so that there won't be an misunderstanding. Smiley

This vote is for supporters of the BBR community, coin and technology. Its not an open vote for the entire crypto world that has all its separate agendas.   Some people might want to keep Boolberry. This is understandable, as people get use to a name and grow to like it. However, in this case, keeping Boolberry is not an option. The Boolberry name is being retired.

So this thread isn't the place for that discussion. However, you can PM Crypto_Zoidberg or myself or Bitcrea to discuss your opinion about this. I am more than happy to chat with you about it.

But we have to keep this thread clean from all the clutter that people will try to bring into it for various reasons.

So posts will be deleted that aren't on point.

If you are an avid supporter of BBR then please PM me to discuss your opinions.

Thanks!
