    I don't know if this has been discussed in more detail, but thediffrence brought this up over at the Rolling Thread, and it's very pertinent. The sooner we know what we're dealing with, the better.

    I should have thought of this earlier myself, given than my Dad was amongst the first over these parts of the world to certify companies with ISO standards...

    BitFinex, for instance, will not change DRK to DASH because they comply to the 3-letter limit. Kraken, which is probably the most fierce compliance and standards operators out there, go to the extent to comply with non-country X codes, like BTC which is XBT. I really believe this may be a huge reason for them not to adopt us, and I'd love to see Dash on Kraken...

    To fully comply, we should start with an X, referring to non-country currencies.

    ISO 4217:2008 is maintained by the Secretariat of the Maintenance Agency, in this case the SIX Interbank Clearing Ltd on behalf of the Swiss Association for Standardization, SNV.

    As you can see, there are no crypto-currencies on that list. Bitcoin is XBT, I suspect it's work in progress, and a huge can of worms.

    I'll have a word with my Dad, and look into what i needed to file an application, at worse to see what we're dealing with. In the meantime, it would be cool for the community to discuss what our 3 letter moniker should be.

    To me, XDH seems obvious, but I frankly there may be some rules to follow regarding it, so a short list would be awesome. I'll open a poll once we have a few candidates. Also, if anyone has more in depth knowledge/info about this, please step up.
