AE's "satoshis" - What to call them?-----ætto

How about Ternie or Ternies or Terni?

Or Tern/Terns?

Correct, is there a different way to pronounce it?

Hey guys! Just to inform you all - the team is now primarily using “ætto” as the smallest AE unit. ættos is plural :slight_smile:


Is the smallest unit actually an Atto? As in:

0.000000000000000001 ?

Because that would be awesome.

I like the name of “atom”, haha

This is not bad.
Atom imply it is a smallest unit. But “ætom” may be better.

Yes :slight_smile: That’s it. That’s the ætto.

What about “quAEntum”, since a quantum represents a measure or bit of information or bit of time or bit of energy or… a bit of everything or of aeternity :wink:

Haha, makes sense, but the team decided on the “ætto” :slight_smile:

“quAEntum” could also have been shortened -> “quaent(s)”
