Eltito, Glad to see you back here.I don't think it's succinct or unique enough, and technically it applies to every crypto-currency in existence.
And it's more like a description, not a brand. Like how Ron Swanson named his company "Very Good Building and Construction Company".
It is possible to have both a brand name and description at the same time. Brands like 'Lyft' and 'DocuSign' give a hint at what they do. IMO a name like 'DropCash' would work because it sounds like what you do with it. When you pay with DropCash, you're dropping virtual cash into the recipient's wallet or register.
I know that some effort and expense has already gone into the name DASH. Unfortunately this name feels like another interim name, and I fear that it's not bold enough to last very long before we end up back here trying to find a better name.
I've been into Darkcoin since almost the very beginning. I run about 1% of the masternode network, and I intend to continue retaining a 1% slice of the pie as the network continues to grow. I remember how long it took to get the Darkcoin D artwork together. It was very public, there were many entries, we took our time, and the community ultimately rallied behind the selection. The DRK artwork is actually so good that we're hesitant even to consider other names than those that start with the letter D so we can keep it (rightfully so IMO).
But something is missing this go-around. I feel like we are being rushed and pushed into using DASH. The community has not been given an opportunity to stew on the latest developments and work toward 'excellent' branding proposals. There has to be a more relaxed, more open way to select a new name.
