Steemit Should Change Its Name
Engine? Or some other spelling variant. Steem powers the Engine. That is catchy and is also apropos to its function.
I am very excited about the potential of Steemit/Steem and the fertile ideas and philosophy of compensated user generated content, however, that name needs some fixin.
The power of the linguistic and verbal association to draw in users is a good tactic in the beginning.
Steemit sounds way too similar to its centralized half cousin, Reddit.
This, when beginning, is not necessarily a bad thing, but, in order to fully mature, I think a name which is more singularly associated with this exciting platform.
There is precedent in the blockchain universe, NEO was ANTshares a few weeks ago. And look at the crypto price jump after the name change too.
We do not need to ape other platforms or bite their naming conventions, Steemit (or whatever its new name will be) has enough strength to stand on its own.
I think we can come up with something that is not only catchy pertinent and meaningful.
Any Other Suggestions ?
