cmd/geth: rename etherbase to coinbase #1420
Yup, some people are already confused about this: https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/3cjcz4/to_set_up_gpu_mining_you_need_a_coinbase_account/
Yes. I do agree that etherbase is probably the right term, but the nomenclature of "coinbase" so so out there, it will take some time. Someone referred to "etherbase" in one of the Skype group and I had to ask what was "etherbase"? Though maybe the respond from the team might have gotten lost somewhere, but I figured it was so when I used the "coinbase" value in my Geth CLI.
Agreed. The issue I have with coin base is Ethereum doesn't have the concept of a coin like Bitcoin does.
