Late Submissions

The following name suggestions have been submitted past the contest deadline, but are definitely noteworthy. 

Dash Forest (by Strophy)
Dash Forest builds on the story of how GroveDB was named and allows for myriad dendrological metaphors such as leaves, roots, trees, etc. to thematically describe DAPI, BLS, masternodes and other Dash network concepts.

Network traffic can be visualised as streams flowing through the forest, quorums as a mysterious mycorrhizal network of fungi, and more complex concepts like the budget system described visually in animations showing how trees sometimes pool resources for the common good.

It sets a tone for visual communication in the same way that has been proven successful by Thorchain and Secret Network, with their different node classes from Nordic mythology or “secret agent” themed communication style.

Last but not least, Dash Forest relates to Evolution, the ‘Tree Of Life’ and it’s famous tree structure that branches into an ever growing variety of applications.

Dash Aerie (by DocAgnew)
Aerie = Eagle’s Nest.

Evomotion (by DocAgnew)
From Evolution to Evomotion, Dash takes you there.

Daship (by MAX)
Short, unique and original, yet cool. It goes in in vein of the naming using abbreviations. In this case: Digital Cash Internet Platform. Evokes associations in English language: Leadership, membership, sportsmanship, etc. Ship – huge structure that carries its own autonomy and environment afloat of sea world. Ship – delivers something.

DashOS (referred to by fuzzyduck)
Simple, compact and says pretty much what platform is all about. Variation: DashNetOS. 

Dash Alias (by nerdmoney)
Autonomous Linked Identity As a Service. Or, Autonomous Linked Identity Assets & Storage.

Dash Aurora (by nerdmoney)
Decentralized Cloud Services.

BloomingField (by Macrochip)
No “Dash” in front. Just like Ethereum calls their protocol upgrades (Homestead, Byzantium, Constantinople). Refers to the idea of many dApps growing out of it. Nothing techy, nothing fancy and not generic.

Dash Platform

Dash Platform

In June 2017, Dash creator Evan Duffield published the roadmap for Dash Evolution.

Now several years in the making, the largest upcoming and highly anticipated Evolution installment called Dash Platform is to be released. It allows for: human-readable usernames; a decentralized HTTP API; blockchain storage of data, and more. 

Dash Platform is an application development platform that leverages the Dash masternode network and blockchain by transforming Dash’s peer-to-peer network into a decentralized cloud. It will create a frictionless developer experience with SDKs (Software Development Kits) to easily develop applications.
