I can imagine the commercials with finger over lips, "Psssst...".

Psst is shorter than Boolberry. Psst associates with a secret. More of humanity knows what Psst means than they do Booleans.

Unless that is you want people to think it is cereal.

Anonymous coin right?

pzzt or psst

That is my gift to you.

Actually, that's not awful.

Has a lot of the same qualities of boolberry - which I still prefer. Does it work in far off foreign tongues?

I fell asleep last night mulling over the name Breeze.

It's a breeze

Feel the breeze


I know, it's prolly shit.

At the end of the day I think changing the name for anything less than spectacular just puts the coin at more risk.
Actually, not a bad name.  BBR ticker should still work for this.

PS: I am not in favor of the type of poll in this thread for the name change.  The problem is you do not know who is voting.  Someone who does not like this coin would vote for the name that they (including sock puppets) think is least beneficial.   It wish there was a way to restrict the voting only to those that posted in the BBR thread prior to a certain date.

Raspberry Pi were originally for geeks.

Food works as a computer name (e.g. Apple Mac) but probably not as a currency, unless you shortened the units to Pi, "that will be 4.99 Pis maman".

I agree BoolBerry is already adored by its investors. But there are lot of other people out there.

I do agree people might get a thrill out of saying, "I will pay you 22 Boolberries for that".

Today I registered swish.cash and egold.cc. Compare, "I will pay you 22 swish for that" or "I will pay you 22 egold for that".

First of all, I voted for keeping Boolberry, not because it's the most perfect name, but mostly because a name change comes with all kinds of issues.

IMHO, names like Breeze and Rune are way too generic. They're not quite the factual-boring of Word or Windows, but they lack any edge, they are not very memorable for this context. Even Bitcoin works in a breeze compared to traditional money transfer methods, and it has its built-in scripting (runes).

Psst or pzzt is a little more interesting, reminds me of ssh - which is equally descriptive, but also a proper abbreviation in the grand hacker tradition. However, it is also somewhat generic for anonymous coins.

Boolberry is this odd little name that doesn't mean anything that already exists, so it can stand on its own.

Psst is terrible; even worse than Rune.  I like 'HushMoney' or 'Ringtone' better. 

But I think we're keeping BBR.  Enough senior and hero members have ridiculed 'Rune' that even the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Marketing Dept would have gotten the message by now.

Yep, whoever came up with Vortex needs to be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

My 400 BBR worth on this debate ('coz I am such a whale ):

When I first heard of Boolberry, my initial reaction was "uggghhhhh" but it's grown on me since then, and now feels kind of cute and fluffy.
Of the other proposed names, only Rune works for me, so I propose:

Runeberry !

I'll get my coat......

The name has grown on my too. And it is catchy. And people do remember the Blackberry mobile phone.

However, 98% of humanity have no idea what a Bool or Boolean is.

Digiberry would be more explicit. It appears to be available.

I like Psst because it is short. And people know it means secret. I don't like how it sounds though as a name. "Pay me 5 psst for coffee".

I don't think it worse than rune. Rune has the wrong meaning, sounds like ruin. Who knows what a rune is? I would have to look it up in a dictionary.

Also, as I hinted in the main BBR thread, I suggest "Farn". Because every single creation of Zoidberg's is at least one Farn's worth. And that if anything is good news, everyone.

(I'll get my coat too, but don't forget to tip the veal, and try the waitress.)

Oh FFS.  CZ will rue the day he let some SEO marketing phony ruin his coin. 

Regardless, good job sussex; your honest efforts to make them see reason were admirable and irrefutable (except by executive fiat).

The hubris, it burns.  Rune's last remaining hope is that TFM and/or BCX succeed in only destroying XMR.  I'm off to dump and buy DarkNotes...

Thanks, it was good fun  Grin

James - I found him a bit disappointing actually, I expected better debate from him.

Anyway, there may be trouble in Gielinor....

From the BBR thread:

ciphering

I add:

stirring  (the anonymity is rings which the users jumble or stir together)

But those are verbs. We really want a noun. Stirrings is I guess a noun, but odd.

I did register egold.cc. Gold is anonymous. I might be willing to donate this domain name. You would need to contact e-gold.com and make sure they agree. They have shown interested in gold backed bitcoin clone in 2013 (but I guess they since realized it can't be decentralized).

Some new brainstorms:

hoodini
sleight
iono  (shortened form of i dunno, but also sounds like a noun ion or ionosphere)

iono.org is available
