The Crypto.com coin (CRO) has just been rebranded as CRONOS in the Crypto.com app. This is giving the coin the same name as the cronos mainnet which is currently in beta.
I think this is a welcome name change, personally I was always confused why they had the name “Crypto.com coin”. It’s awful, so much so that everyone simply called it CRO.
The new name is presumably after the mythological Greek titan Cronus, son of Uranus, ruler of the universe. Although it could be named after the similarly named Chronos, a different Greek titan who was essentially the father of the cosmos.
I think the new name is awesome, it sounds cool, rolls off the tongue nicely and brings some of the ecosystem together. What are peoples thoughts on this name update?
