Progress on the Genesis Marketplace has continued at a steady pace and we’re really excited about what the future holds. We’ll be sharing some more details about our progress as well as releasing some new screenshots over the coming weeks, but for the immediate future, we’re getting ourselves ready for the upcoming token swap. Details about how the token swap will work as well as the final token specifications will be announced later this month.
In the meantime, we need your help in shaping the future of Genesis and e-commerce on the blockchain.
As many of you will know, the idea of re-branding Genesis to something else was discussed last year but we decided to keep with the name Genesis. While Genesis is a name we love, it’s used by dozens of other projects, businesses, and coins. Even outside of the cryptocurrency scene, Genesis is a hugely popular name. For that reason, we feel that it makes us hard to stand out and brings added challenges with regards to building brand recognition.
Not only that, but domain options are also extremely limited as a result, leaving us with little choice but to compromise on domain names which, ultimately, we’re not satisfied with. With the release of the Genesis Marketplace getting closer, we’ve been considering the different domains we can use to put the marketplace on. Unfortunately, we’re not happy with any of the choices.
For that reason, we’re feeling that using the name Genesis is limiting us for the reasons outlined above. Therefore, we’re seriously considering rebranding and that’s where you come in.
We want to hear what your thoughts are on the situation as well as providing us feedback on some of the alternatives we’ve come up with.
Option 1 – Sticking with Genesis
This option involves us sticking with the Genesis brand as it is. We will still look to move over to a new name for the general Genesis cryptocurrency website which will outline what we’re building as well as details about the Genesis token.
As for the marketplace, the best domain we can come up with would be along the lines of
The token would also still be known as GEN.
Option 2 – Storex
Storex would be a unique name for a cryptocurrency project, especially when that is building an e-commerce marketplace. We think having the word ‘Store’ in the name goes well with the project.
The domain for the marketplace would simply be storex.com with the token now being referred to as STX.
Again, we’d have a separate website for the project and token side of things but the marketplace and project would both be referred to as Storex.
Option 3 – Sellary
Sellary would be a unique name for a cryptocurrency project and is play-on-word. Not only that but as we’re building an e-commerce marketplace, having the word sell in our name feels suitable.
The domain for the marketplace would simply be sellary.com with the token now being referred to as SELL.
Again, we’d have a separate website for the project and token side of things but the marketplace and project would both be referred to as Sellary.
Option 4 – Cryptore
Cryptore is another unique name which is not used by any other active projects in the cryptocurrency sphere and mixes the word ‘Crypto’ and ‘Store’ together to get Cryptore.
The domain for the marketplace would simply be cryptore.com with the token now being referred to as TORE.
