Since VCIX is a digital badge, why does it include the letter "C" for certification?

When we introduced VMware Digital Badges the VCIX was transitioned to become a Badge, since it does not require any requirements beyond earning the two VCAP certifications. Awarding VCIX as a digital badge still allows you to share and communicate your achievement (it might even be easier now).

We recognize that the VCIX name still reflects the older certification framework when VCIX was a certification. However, we didn’t want to lose the brand since it is used and known in the marketplace already, and still reflects the work of earning the two VCAPs.
