    This is a fair position. We should move forward with DCR. If a particular site has another coin listed which uses that abbreviation they may choose to use XDCR or some other substitute for Decred in that case. The onus should not be on Decred to change our ticker to suit others.

    I agree with the users above, DCR is a very good name.

    I'm down with DCR, it's the most descriptive of the full name, if that makes sense :p

    DCR is already listed on coinmarketcap. Even a dead coin with a 14BTC market cap can cause confusion. It is just asking for bad publicity. As most exchanges support 4 letter tickers, I suggest DCRD.

    Actually, I like the 4 letter ticker because it is different.

    I would be happy with DCRD too :)

    Although DCR would have been generally better and smaller.
    But since it is already in use and taken, I would fully agree to go with DCRD.

    I agree, DCR is perfect. If that's taken I'm not sure what else would work. I was thinking CRED but that seems to be the opposite of what Decred is. DCRD or DCD just aren't as good. Personally I think DCD could be a last resort, though I hope DCR is free.

    Maybe the slogan, RDC "Rethink Digital Currency"? Although that's also the remote desktop / RDP program on a PC...decisions decisions..:confused:

    Its already on Bleutrade as DCR. I'm not sure what will happen on exchanges like Yobit where DCR is taken though.

    That is because we are still on block 249, and it is locked until 256. :) Soon after that, the offers will drop a bit.
