On January 13, 2020, at 3:00 PM PST (January 14, 2020, at 8:00 AM, UTC+9), there will be a POI community vote on the proposed Symbol Ticker.
Symbol Ticker — NEM Community Vote Translations
After passing the Catapult Brand Recommendation Proposal, the Catapult Brand Steering Committee has reached an agreement to give the community an opportunity to vote for their preferred Brand Ticker for Symbol Blockchain.
Initial Symbol ticker options were collated from the NEM Foundation, NEM Studios, NEM Ventures, supernode owners, community members, core team and ecosystem partners:
PLEASE NOTE: After an extensive brand and trademark search spanning many months, XEM, NEM, CAT, and SYM cannot be used to represent the Symbol Blockchain.
Some of these name suggestions are not ISO 4217 compliant (which means to be compliant, we would need to keep to 3 characters max.) Not all ticker names are ISO compliant but in general, ticker names are recommended to be between 3-5 characters. Read more here.
The voting process is as follows:
- Voting will commence on January 13, 2020, at 1:00 PM PST and will end on January 17, 2020, at 5:00 PM PST.
- Each user account can vote for only a single ticker (as listed above).
- Community members can only choose one from the options.
- Step-by-step voting instructions can be found here.
- The ticker option with the highest POI score will be picked as the winner.
- Once the voting period has ended, the results and next steps will be announced by the Catapult Brand Steering Committee in the NEM Forums.
Thank you for your consideration and support,
Catapult Brand Steering Committee
