The reason of no change name it will confuse investors further if you change name new erc20 it will confuse people that there must be another erc20.
1. Investors wont be lost if they use their common sense.
2. A 1.1 swap is possible but if old erc20 which has 1.5bill supply and the new erc20 has 150 million supply then swap ratio 10:1.
3.erc20 name is not patented in anyway but if you got common sense then you will not get confused and if you get confused with these simple changes i dnt think crypto trading is good thing to go into.
