If you call it for what it is then: uselesscoin.

But if you want to pretend it is something of value then: primecoin.

Related to primecoin, yeah, but that's ugly too, and kinda too trivial. Maybe "prim", or "primm"? For "prime mersenne". Easy to say, more resonance? dunno..

Once upon a time, number theory conferences, seminars, etc. were meetings for people with a passion for pure mathematics.
Then its applications to cryptology meant all sorts of people started coming who were merely interested in the security industry.
Now, with the cryptocurrency craze, it starts to attract people who are merely interested in the finance industry.

I shall be glad when the craze is over.

Primecoin already exists.

My suggestion is Marin. That is my sole contribution to this thread, as I have nothing to do with cryptocurrency.
