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?

Hopefully the NOS will make CRO move faster
Son of Uranus Coin
Every time I say CRO I have to stop myself from saying cronut.
It’s about time.
It reminds me of Kratos, God of War.
As an avid fan of Greek Mythology, this is a definite upgrade in my eyes 👌
Bullish on Cronos!
If this triggers a bull run, do we call it the Cronos Trigger?
Honestly it does feel like they are trying to distance themselves from the website name so this could either be a step towards less centralization or less transparency. Time will tell.
I see, so ruler of Time huh. They want us to be the HODL Gods
Can we still call ourself Cronies?
just my opinion: this name change could have been made in anticipation of a possible listing on other exchanges. I don’t think other exchanges would have accepted the idea of having a coin called “crypto.com” on their site.
I love CRO.. but it’s weird to change the name of the token after all the app marketing they’ve done.
CRONOS ruler of the Universe
Good. Hope they getting serious about the chain. It has strong potential to be the next BNB.
I guess it was only a matter of time.
I finally get recognition
Having to take the hyperlink out of crypto.com every time I typed it got annoying. Welcome change.
Looks like they are following Binance move
Bullish on cro
I though it was the god of time.
CRONOS better watch out if it has any children… or if it accidentally eats a rock instead of a child.
Hehehe…he said Uranus
This is huge
Not to be confused with Kronos, who knew about their shortcomings and didn’t do anything until a cyberattack brought thousands of their customer’s systems down.
Then told their customers they should have had a backup plan for this, when they didn’t have a backup plan themselves.
Yes, my bum still hurts over this.
The easier to google due to this namechange.
Mind as well change it to CROANUS, ruler of fucking your bum
I prefer crypto.com coin
Never forget Monaco, Ensogo, BeeCrazy
CRO could be the next big exchange coin
Third time they’ve rebranded the coin now. . .
The board meeting definitely went like this.
“We need to rebrand our Coin Name”
“What about Cronos? Starts with CRO?”
This is a copy and paste by the same user in 3 subs posts
Honestly. I think it was stupid. They had the opportunity to just say CRO is short for “crypto” and be done with it. It would have simplified the marketing and help get more muggles on board.
CRONOS has the whole mythology back story and the association with time that I think will not resonate with many out amongst the normals.
Looks like they are eating cro on this one.
shitcoin is now called shitecoin.
Reminds me of NANO rebranding
This sub should just change its name to crypto.com for all the endless marketing and content about the brand every single fucking day
