Bitcoin 101 Blackboard Series – Understanding The Name Is Key To

Published on Oct 20, 2013
Talk about confusing, Bitcoin’s name is used for two different aspects in the Bitcoin world. Its a real problem. Sorting out the different usages helps folks get much closer to Bitcoin understanding. We also go through the best proposal we’ve seen for bitcoin unit names. It even rhymes for easier learning. Hoshi, Bara, Genshi, Ringo, Tara. Great stuff.

You mentioned in one post that we should have better names for bitcoin’s units. The current one’s are too techy, sound horrible, and show no imagination. Why not use the idea of the originator, Satoshi Nakamoto. We could use simple, nice sounding japanese words. I’ve got a set here that I think sounds great, works well, and will keep the bitcoin much funner and more beautiful to use.

Hoshi (star) = 1,000,000 bitcoins
Bara (rose) = 1,000 bitcoins
Genshi (atom) = 1 bitcoin
Ringo (apple) = 0.001 bitcoins
Tara (tiger) = 0.000001 bitcoins
Satoshi (originator) = 0.00000001 bitcoins

I hope you like them. It would make all the bitcoin graphics much more beautiful too. I’m into graphics and I’m sick of that B coin. Besides its confusing.
