Altkoin.com

Brandability+

As tight a brandable as you’re likely to find in the cryptospace. This domain was minted back when there were less than 100 altcoins (now there are 10,000+) — just a few months after Ethereum and Doge peeped onto the scene.

The various top extensions have since been acquired, so the new owner will have a stellar opportunity to dominate this branding space.

Draw the Cryptocultists

Altkoin.com is a compact and playful brand that invokes instant association — and potentially even a kind of tribal allegiance. It’s such a clean domain (in a space with some truly atrocious, ill-thought-out brands) that it’s tempting to term it the ‘category defining brandable’.

Instant Brand Identification

As regards the best use case for Altkoin.com, we leave that up to the boundless imagination of the crypto startup community. Whichever way you guys take it, you’re guaranteed instant brand identification and (mostly positive!) association.

The exact match .com has never been developed, so that potential source of brand competition is not active.

A note on translating ‘Altkoin’

We would also point out that ‘altkoin’ is actually the name of this class of cryptocurrency in Russian, Bulgarian, Kazakh and some of the other Slavic languages that use a form of Cyrillic script. But please note the process taken to arrive at this..

Each of these languages are naturally written in the script of that language, and if you then transliterate that into English it is indeed ‘altkoin’. Altkoin.ru is registered, for example. But since it would be more natural for a Russian (keyboard) user to type in the Cyrillic form альткоин.ru, we doubt whether the transliterated version can be expected to receive much type-in traffic.

Linguistically so closely related are the Slavic languages that the respective term for ‘altcoin’ in Ukrainian and several other majors in this language family will tend to be fairly equatable the featured brand.But we would argue that it is not an exact keyword match. In Ukrainian, for example, the term is ‘loaned in’ directly (as in Russian, etc.), but the accented й in the Ukrainian cognate альткойн means that the correct rendering of the ‘Latynka’ (Latin alphabet) version is altkoyn.
