Bitcoin needs a cockney rhyming slang for all the statoshis. In cockney £20 is a score, £25 is a pony, £100 is a tonne, £500 is a monkey and £1000 is a grand.

Can you explain the rhymes here? I can't figure them out.
These are Cockney slang but not rhyming.

20: score. a very old word for 20. e.g. "threescore years and ten" is from the bible.

25: pony. no one knows for sure. some say it's because an indian 25 rupee note had a pony on it, but I've never seen anyone back that up with a picture or even any evidence that this note existed.

100: ton. tonnage is the measure of capacity of a ship (so volume not weight). 100 cubic feet are in one maritime ton.

500: monkey. again no one knows. again said to be from a 500 rupee note but no one has an image of one.

1000: grand. actually from american slang of around 1915. $1000 was "a grand sum".

Ah well, thank you. I feel less foolish for not having figured the "rhymes" out.

Bitnote

My friends and I were launching an ecommerce site with potential of taking bitcoin.  Realized there is a big communication issue with people understanding normal priced items (coffee, gas, kindle, clothing) when expressing in bitcoin.  i.e. a shirt costing 0.0483858 BTC for $29.90

Regular people do poorly with all the 0's and decimals, and usually poorly with terms like milli/micro.  For bitcoin to be big, it has to expand to these people.
We proposed 1 bitcoin = 1024 Bitnote.

The website is: http://bitnote.co

"nitbit"

From urban dictionary:

nit

gambling term. usually found in poolrooms. Refers to:
1. Someone who's so afraid to lose a bet that they have to be coddled and convinced for an hour that they're going to have a great time and probably win, too. Eventually they may play, but by the time they get on the table the stakes are so low the table-time will eat any winnings you make.

2. someone who won't play unless they have a guaranteed sure win.

3. someone who'll squeeze a dollar 'til george's eyes pop out of the paper.


1) In information technology as elsewhere, a nit (pronounced NIHT) is a small, usually unimportant imperfection in something. People who have unusually high or unreasonable standards for the quality of a thing are sometimes referred to as nitpickers.

2) In lighting, the nit is a unit of visible-light intensity, commonly used to specify the brightness of a cathode ray tube or liquid crystal display computer display.  One nit is equivalent to one candela per square meter.  The candela, formerly called candlepower, is approximately the amount of light emitted by a common tallow candle; technically it is the quantity of radiation emitted by 1.667 x 10-6 square meter of a blackbody at the melting point of platinum.  The candela is equal to one lumen per steradian (unit solid angle). (A blackbody is an object that radiates energy with 100 percent efficiency at all electromagnetic wavelengths. It also absorbs all electromagnetic energy that strikes it, hence the expression "black." It is a theoretical ideal of interest in physics and engineering.)

The nit is a comparatively small unit of brightness.   A typical active-matrix LCD panel has an output between 200 and 300 nit, for example.

3) In digital electronics, the term nit is occasionally used to represent an amount, or increment, of data equal to 1.44 binary digit.

Where my shines at son?

You owe me two shines. 

"I was makin' it shine up in da scrip club!"  Pacman Jones

That thing is 8 shines, what a ripoff.

"Bitch betta have my shines, through rain, sleet or snow!"  your local pimp

On a cleaner note, I gave 10 shines in church today when the QR code was passed around.  I love altruism, and baby Jesus.

Hmmm. I'm not sure this passes the Turing test. Close, but not quite.

0.001 BTC == 10-3 BTC, so it's mBTC (1 BTC = 1000 mBTC).
So 1 mBTC should be called milliBTC, or millibitcoin.
Short version could be millibits, mibits, milbits.

Funny version: LitreBit or LitreCoin Grin

I already commented that when the thread was first dug up by a 2 activity newbie, however, people seem to enjoy posting their own ideas.
Let them do whatever they want, I doubt anyone is expecting a reward, lol.

I suggest calling 1 full BTC a gallon, 1/4 a quart, 1/8 a pint, 1/16 a cup, 1/128 an ounce, 1/256 a Tablespoon, 1/768 a teaspoon, 1/6144 a dash, 1/12,288 a pinch, 1/24,576 a smidgen, 1/49,152 a nip.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
