Is it possible to create own token with existing name? E.g., Golem (GNT)? Or token names must be unique?

@dauletmyrzan: of course you can create a token with every name you want to give it. expect to maybe get legal problems with copyright etc.
but nothing explicitly forbids you from creating GolemToken, or SuperToken, or DogeCoin, or even PlacentaCoin
problem is, the GNT already exists
so you would not be ill-advised, to just copy and paste their name
as always identifiability is key in naming your token!

Hi guys, I want to create a smart contract on the Ethereum network. When someone writes on the blockchain e.g. asking a question (this cost gas to write which we need to pay). But gas is variable. How can i write a piece of code which equals the current gas price of ETHER with the value of my own token?

why would you want that @parzinskij, then you just have a mirror currency of ether
what would be there to gain from that?
in fact, that you are not bound to the ether price is the main advantage of having your own token
you can always adjust the price of your token, you could even write a function for that
for example: current price of ether, past price of ether, the delta amount will be used to adjust your own token, could even be percentage-wise

Sorry what I meant was how can I write a smart contract for when a user writes om my Dapp which cost gas and the contract takes the current gas price in ETH and lets the user pay in my own crypto currency since i want to make people pay in my own token for gas usage.

I'm trying to copy and paste the sample DAO codes available in Ethereum.org but they won't compile. The token didn't give me a hard time, but the DAO is generating errors I cannot solve... since I don't code. Can you point me in the right direction, please?
