Feedback on SGC Names
Please send your suggestions for names for the proposed single global currency, or vote for an existing proposal, in email to:
We have no budget for the winner of this “contest” but can assure you that fame and fortune will come to the person(s) who propose a name which is adopted by the world for its new currency.
Of course, there is no assurance that a world conference will adopt a name proposed here, but one never knows.
