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


#21

Why not just “satoshis”.
Everybody says: “Send some satoshis” or “What is the name of their satoshis?”.
Already everybody knows what satoshis are - the smallest unit of a coin.


#22

I love your suggestions, guys :slight_smile:


#23

What about AETOSHIS ?


#24

Aetoms / Atoms sound most reasonable and non-random.
How do you guys actually properly pronounce aeternity (and therefore aetoms)?


#25

I have heard ae pronounced as eternity


#26

ae永恒
good good good goood


#27

How about Ternie or Ternies or Terni?

Or Tern/Terns?


#28

nitys … give me 500 nitys


#29

Correct, is there a different way to pronounce it?


#30

I also like ætoms!


#31

aero should be called


#32

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


#33

Is the smallest unit actually an Atto? As in:

0.000000000000000001 ?

Because that would be awesome.


#34

I like the name of “atom”, haha


#35

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


#36

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


#39

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:


#40

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


#41

“quAEntum” could also have been shortened -> “quaent(s)”
pitty, that I missed that thread
butt aetto is also nice :grin:


#42

1 aetto = 0.000000000000000001
1 faemto = 0.000000000000001
1 paeco = 0.000000000001
1 naeno = 0.000000001
1 maecro = 0.000001
1 millae = 0.001
