What would be a good moniker for Cardano/ADA? This question is based on a video posted by one of our community members, Philipe on his awesome youtube channel
( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCIZ_eDdXi8). I just wanted to share my thoughts on the topic and solicit more input from the community.
As Philipe pointed out in his video, BitCoin is known as 'Digital Gold", and I think there is little doubt how powerful this has become as a brand/moniker. It’s relatable to the masses and its a conversation starter.
Nonetheless, when I think of Cardano/ADA, my mind runs to platinum…
(1) Platinum requires very little maintenance, as it is corrosion resistant and does not tarnish. It is also less malleable than gold. This is exactly what we anticipate for Cardano… a stable(little maintenance), fault resistant(corrosion free) , secure (un tarnishable) and underpinned with a solid governance structure (less malleable than bitcoin and its forks)
(2) Platinum is the most precious of metals, due to its stunning appearance and superior durability it commands more value/price - thats what we anticipate for ADA in few years.
(3) And finally, Platinum is a naturally lustrous element, and its hypoallergenic status makes it highly sought after.
I would therefore, recommend the moniker: “Digital Platinum”.
Cardano or ADA is Digital Platinum.
Please share your thoughts on this.
