    Think mainstream adoption. Do you think people will want to say they sent an RDX to someone?

    Google, while weird, managed to get an action named after itself: to google or googling (danish: googler).

    EMU is a bit weird in that context, but it has meaning.. electronic monetary unit.. but i think its not quite right. I just don't agree that Bitcoin is BTC, Litecoin is LTC, Ethereum is ETH and this we need RDX or whatever :)

    That's why we need a consumer name for mainstream, I guess most us aren't inclined towards anything eMu related by now. Right?

    I really like these two for their boldness and straight-forward claims. Additionally, GEM is very easy to pronounce and use verbally in every-day situations; in contrast to EMU etc.

    Nobody will get the meaning of electronic monetary unit from EMU unless someone describes it to a person, whereas as i mentioned before eMoney requires no explanation and is self explanatory to average Joe.

    Most currencies lend themselves to 2 syllables. Maybe we should inspire from them?

    EMU sounds near of Ecu, (European Currency Unit) the seed of Euro.

    GEM is a very good name in my humble opinion too.

    Forget eMoney, it’s totally beyond our reach. It’s not only about the domain, but also the brand. The brand eMoney is owned by the Electronic Transaction Systems Corporation (ETS) and already in use for payment services.

    eCoin only thing is some dumb bitcoin exchange, even just Token/ maybe Tokin . It portrays value and currency, it can become a form of payment all on it's own synonym to dollars.

    Positions pays 100,000 tokens / yr
    How many Tokens is that? 5 tokens please

    BUC Borderless Universal Currency (plural BUCs associates slightly to 'bucks')
    DUC Digital Universal Currency
    UCU Universal CUrrency
    UC Universal Currency
    UCU might be better than UC as UCUs in plural comes easy on the tongue.
    UMU Universal Monetary Unit
    WC World Currency (not good in plural)
    GC Global Currency (not good in plural)
    DI Digital International
    DIX (as suggested further up by @papicucu) is both singular and plural in pronunciation, and easy recognizable being Radix affiliated. OFC can be interpreted a bit rude too ;)

    If it's just the token name and urls etc aren't necessary how about something keeping with the radix theme, like :

    Core - cor
    Seed - sed
    Base - bas

    But honestly, if the token catches on for practical reasons people will come up with their own slang and call it what they want. I guess for short term, while it's competing with shitcoins this is important though.

    I'm actually for RAD. It doesn't matter if it's already used for some coin, as it's not very well known.

    RDX is difficult to pronounce if you don't know the project yet.

    iOS was already in use (by Cisco I think) before Apple. Did Apple care? No!

    RDX is cool beacause of that phenomene:
    https://www.ecenglish.com/learnenglish/lessons/can-you-read
    If you see the first and last letter and (the same number of) letters between it like in the correct word you can read it anyway. So RDX is pretty obvious connected to Radix.
    Pronounciation is not an issue when it comes to shortform. Its U. S. A. and not usa, right? BeeTeeCee for BTC, which is just used without problems.
    So my vote for RDX!

    If you really want that then the only solution would be Ra-Dix...

    yeah, by letting it simmer for some hours RDX is perfect due to when spoken it is actually saying radix - so I agree with you guys.

    No EMU! RDX is better.
