I would like to start with a disclaimer of sorts, I am by no means making any implications in this topic. The aim of it, as suggested by the category and the tag, is pure speculation for the purpose of entertainment. I quite enjoy poking at such topics and find it amusing, and hope someone else will as well.
I was wondering about the significance of the the software names, in regards to their mythological implications. Clearly Daedalus is a representation of a brilliant inventor and an innovator, but the wallet logo itself draws attention to the Minotaur myth in particular. Which is by no means a happy one A story of hubris, god’s wrath and betrayal, which brought about a ferocious monster trapped in a maze, the violent bellowing of which caused catastrophes such as earthquakes. Doesn’t strike me as an obvious choice for a representation of a hopeful new endeavor Granted the labyrinth itself is a marvel of architectural brilliance, still I don’t think the purpose it served can be disregarded as insignificant. I have been struggling to come up with an explanation which would put a positive spin on it, but there has been no lack of negative ones Being a person who enjoys taking a closer look at things of this nature, judging by myself, I believe that someone interested in such matters, or interested enough to choose it as a representation of their work, would likely not have done so for arbitrary reasons. Immensely more complex and layered is the Ouroboros image, but perhaps that is a discussion for later.
Anyhow as I mentioned this is purely in the spirit of good fun. I would love some insight on this matter from anybody, or to hear from a person involved in the decision making process of naming these would be tremendous, but perhaps that is not realistic.
