Inviting discussion around changing the name of the GAX liquidity reward token (GLMR).
The issue with the current name is that it is also the native token for the Moonbeam network.
Moonbeam one of the largest projects in the Polkadot ecosystem and has the potential to be one of the largest coins by marketcap once their full genesis supply is released over the next few months.
Obviously there are hundreds of coins out there and we can’t tip toe around all of them, but maybe we should not collide with one of the (potentially) largest?
The biggest downside of keeping GLMR would be confusion for newcomers trying to learn and play the game (imagine if one of our central tokens was named ATOM or AVAX).
Developers can comment but I imagine this change would be relatively simple - Updating the GAX contracts and whitepaper/website to reflect the naming change.
Pegasus#8500 suggested a new name with no known conflicts that could be a great alternative: GLAM
