    How about Darkcoin Sloth. Then, as mixing gets faster we upgrade the animals to ferret, rabbit, cheetah, etc.

    Carbonado is another great name, but remember, we are all hoping this will be a short-lived edition, soon to be replaced by ones featuring instantx and IP obfuscation. IMHO we should save the really good names for more mature releases.

    It's going to be hard to top Onyx, this much I can tell you...

    Cheetah is probably the best one so far, everyone associates a cheetah with speed. Black Panther will sound too political...

    Hmm... dark revolutionaries seeking to overthrow the existing order of suppression by a willingly ignorant and complicit majority... no you're right we're nothing like that.:rolleyes:

    Black Panther Edition does sound sexy as...

    Do we want to be associated with Denzel Washington movies though?

    Well if we want to skip the DW associations and maintain the other, we could just jump to "Dark Negligee Edition."

    I would suggest the Latin word: LUCIS which means Light.

    We've had a very challenging but exciting year for Darkcoin and I think we can all collectively see the "light" at the end of the tunnel through the amazing work of Evan and others who have served through the forums, chat rooms, app messengers and in silence :).

    Let there be Light! : LUCIS

    Or we can go with OBSIDIAN
    Obsidian is a naturally occurring BLACK volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimum crystal growth.

    It is pure darkness...

    Obsidian. That brings me back. This one was in my rotation circa 2000 at Burning Man. Could be the new DarkCoin Theme.



    EDIT - Don't give up before 4 minutes...

    Just throwing my idea for a name out there "LibertyX" or just "Liberty" has a nice sound to it.

    I believe there is another coin name Libertycoin, so I would avoid that.

    No, please don't. More credits go to the devs, Aswan, and many other people who looked into the code and have been working relentlessly to make Darkcoin better and better.

    ITT: People wanting to be the one who named a Darkcoin release, almost no one discussing the actual announcement. If you name it after some sort of big cat, we'll look like OS X.

    Are you still going to implement the "Change Contracts using Atomic Transfers" with the plan you talked about when we were on that thread?

    Sounds about right. If the time for 8 rounds could be reduced to that amount of time, there isn't any reason not to default to 8 and get rid of the option to specify less. Better pool of pathways and better represents how powerful multiple rounds can be in terms of anonymity through obscurity.
