"I'll give you some D"

"I love being on the receiving end of getting D"

"She loves the D"

"I could never have enough D"

DASH has already been decided.

I think Direct Pay or something along those lines could be better and should at least be open for discussion as well as other options.

Direct Pay... wow happy I decided to log on today, I just thought of that 5 minutes ago :)

A friend, who is a branding expert, did this quick draft, I got him into Darkcoin and are pooling together on a node, and he jumped off his chair in joy when he heard about the name change.

Oh I didn't see it had already been decided, I just read the new press release...

I really like the arrow on the D.

Much better - easy to read -> less space for mistake & misunderstanding.

May be different arrow type (simpler) may be even better.

I doubt we'll much more work on this, he's a very busy guy. I also dont want to be nagging him for changes. This he did in just a few minutes as a "conceptual mocl-up", I can only imagine what would come out of a few hours work.

I don't know what is decided about logo style:
1. Should we inherit Darkcoin style now for the transition period (half a year?) - to show that we are darkcoin, not a new coin?
2. Or should we make a new perfect logo - to not have problems with lots of out-of-date logos.

If second option - it's better to organize a competition for professional designers - to get all best ideas. This name is perfect for creativity...

I'm totally excited by the change in name but think that Dash has potential for confusion with the existing Dashcoin which may confuddle newbies. Someone in the Bitcointalk forum somewhere mentioned a trademark issue too, so I checked uspto.gov and there is one particular entry there that could be concerning, as well as a Dash payment system for parking in the UK. More confusion potential as well as TM.

Am I too late to the conversation or is there still wiggle room for other possible names?

There is certainly going to be no confusion to the real market. No one even knows who we are with a miesly sub $30 Mil market cap never mind knowing Dashcoin with no market cap. I've read some where that less then 0.0001% of global consumers have even heard of alt coins...never mind Dashcoin or Dash. Dash is taking fresh ownership of this brand name and bringing it to hopefully 0.1% of the global market. Trademark would matter if the product was of a competitive nature which they are not. The Dev team can answer more to this then I can. This finalized and the majority are very pumped for this name.
