I used to think Koinos meant Koin operating system. It makes sense, but it actually means "common" (in Greek).
The innovation and the team are anything but common, but I expect Koinos to be a common household name (even moreso than Ethereum in time).
Why? Because it doesn't have fees.
Imagine if Google, Facebook, or Wikipedia charged a fee (even a tiny one) for their services. Lots of people would still do it, but many would leave. For Blockchain to be adopted by the masses, it has to be free to use.
P.S. Welcome to the list! I reply to every email, so send me your questions/comments.
