    Radix - > Fabric - > Gearix?

    Edit: There is a project behind gearix. com... but i dont know which kind. Gearic is free.

    I think Wirebeam is simple enough (as simple as Instagram and Facebook) and with some good connotations for this project. But Minty.com and Beemy.com are alternatives to consider, they are for sale but I don’t know the price.

    Wirebeam reminds me of wire transfer.

    At least to my ears, it reminds me of the technology we are replacing.

    Beam, sounds better although is used a bit with a quick google.

    Yes it reminds of wire transfer, and that can be a good thing; it reminds people that it is used for sending money. And it’s still a type of ”wire transfer” even though it’s decentralised and the ”wire” is fiber and wifi networks...

    Bitcoin reminds of coins which is the oldest kind of money...

    I agree with Cyg, it would be nice to have something simple or memorable (maybe both).

    Something that has a Latin or Greek style could be nice as well.
    Aurum and Vitae (ulfarsgco suggestions) both sound great.

    Remember the domains must be available.

    Aurum.com is in use by Aurum Fund Management, so not likely we can buy it.
    Vitae.com is taken but forwarded to a different domain, maybe we can buy it.

    What about Raddle

    Raddle.com is available for £32k on godaddy

    Doesnt really mean anything other than its another word for reddle which means a red pigment consisting of ochre?

    Aura.com is for sale.

    AURA = Golden Root (AU = Aurum (Gold) + RA = Radix (Root)).

    Or maybe flip the Radix and have a word starting with X?

    Would be unique and futuristic seen a couple of financial terms already used Xenocurrency and Xetra...

    Dixy.com is for sale.

    Ra[dix] -> dixy

    Can't we just get an .global address? or .io?

    Of the latest bunch, aura is by far the best (but it will be taken as its more common definition at first rather than AU RA)

    Personally I don’t mind using .global or .io or something else, but for marketing purposes the .com is always best. There are so many new domain extentions that it is confusing, but everybody knows about .com domains.

    For the consumer brand .com is needed, Dan wants the platform to be accepted by the masses, to go mainstream

    Aura sounds great and has several advantages.
    * the word is full of mystical sense, something that surronds all of us, a bit like the ether
    * It is not so far of Euro. this can give credibility inconsciously
    * it is concise and people would say easily in the future "hey, give me an Aura" ;)
     
    trescuernos, Cyg and Rickard like this.

    The name should be easy to pronounce and remember in most languages, some names sound easy for the english speaking members but not so easy for the rest of the world.
