Facebook coin? Zuckbucks?: 10 potential names for a Facebook cryptocurrency

With more and more news and speculation seeping out about Facebooks new cryptocurrency venture, various speculators turn their minds to the real issue: What’s it going to be called?

Facebook is apparently set to launch its cryptocurrency within the first half of 2019, and will integrate the payments based coin across various messaging services such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram; potentially ushering in a new, massive wave of adoption. But is it really going to do all this with a name like Facebook Coin?

Its fairly unlikely therefore that Facebook will choose this name (or its corresponding ticker) in order to avoid any confusion... so what are the options?

Luckily, other alternatives have been suggested by crypto Twitter including, the growingly popular ‘Zuckbucks’: Named after the Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg -  along with other iterations on the same theme:

A Poll by Ryan Hoover Founder of product hunt offered a resoundingly popular result for a similar take on the aforementioned Zuckbucks:

This was then followed by a slew of other suggestions:

Whether or not Facebook will take Crypto Twitter’s suggestions into account or not, remains to be seen, but with Facecoin presumably off the tables, it seems the next reasonably name might be Facebook Coin…

However, if Zuckerberg has even an ounce of humanity left, he’ll call it Zuckbucks…
