Update the branding of Empty Set Protocol

Summary

ESD played a central role in kicking off the current ecosystem of algo-stables. While it was one of the first, ESD, the token, has a reputational issue due to its broken peg. I propose we rename the stable instrument of the protocol and the share token in V2 to distance the protocol from people’s image of V1’s ESD.

New Tokens

The protocol will have two ERC-20 tokens: one a stable token and the other a governance token. The ESS & @eqparenthesis have suggested the following names and symbols:

stablecoin

  • name: Digital Standard Unit
  • symbol: DSU
  • decimals: 18
  • character: ⊙ [U+2299], ⊙100

governance token

  • name: Empty Set Share
  • symbol: ESS
  • decimals: 18
  • character: ∅ [U+2205], ∅100

protocol

  • name: Empty Set
