Question about IOTA and MIOTA


When I get my balance with ‘/api/v3/account’ , for IOTA I get
“asset”: “IOTA”,
“free”: “1000.00000000”,
“locked”: “0.00000000”

IOTA is the name of the project and MIOTA the name of the currency. Should it be “MIOTA” instead in “asset” ?

I’m working with other APIs, and it does not match with them (for exemple CoinGecko or CMC) as they work with “MIOTA” as currency


thanks for the feedback, IOTA seems a much well known name than MIOTA,
