Calling for proposals for naming StarkNet's testnets

We’re launching a second StarkNet testnet on Goerli (to be announced here soon!)
The purpose of this new testnet is for developers to test their apps in a less congested and noisy environment.

We currently call our testnets ‘Goerli1’ and ‘Goerli2’, but there must be a better naming system…

We call for community suggestions for a naming system for StarkNet testnets.
A naming system will be selected in the next couple of days.

A good naming system…

  • should have a theme; we’re starting with 2 testnets but there may be more in the future
  • has names that are uniquely identifiable (e.g. ‘Ropsten’ is better than ‘John’)
  • may take into account the order in which the networks were spun

(Did you know? Ethereum’s testnets - Goerli, Ropsten, Kovan, etc. - are named after metro stations in the cities of their manintainers)

Curious to see your suggestions :nerd_face:

Base initials followed by index…?

G1, G2…, Gn?

Space terms sound cool, so I would say Starknet Nebula and Starknet Quasar. :rocket:

Nebula for the first because it’s the first testnet and a precursor for development and creation just how “Nebulae are often star-forming regions, such as in the “Pillars of Creation” in the Eagle Nebula”.

Quasar for the second as it is defined as “a massive and extremely remote celestial object, emitting exceptionally large amounts of energy, and typically having a starlike image in a telescope”. The testnet is remote from mainnet, and will harbor development that will “emit” new innovations and projects onto the mainnet.
The second testnet also represents another stage in the evolution in the growth of Starknet and “it has been suggested that quasars contain massive black holes and may represent a stage in the evolution of some galaxies”.

What about just Goerli Starknet, ser?

So simple and easy one !

or Cairo testnet.

What about “Ramesses II” after the greatest Pharaoh ever, and there is the reference to 2 as the second Testnet.

Maybe name it after months?
January, February, March and so on? :slight_smile:

Je pense aux noms des éléments du tableau périodique. La classification est déjà faites et on peut nommer facilement de futurs réseaux.

On commencerait par Hydrogène, numéro atomique 1, l’élément le plus abondant de l’Univers. Principal constituant de la matière vivante, très réactif et à la base du processus de la formation des étoiles.

Puis Hélium, numéro atomique 2, c’est un gaz noble donc il réagit que dans des conditions très particulières et est pratiquement inerte (représente l’environnement moins bruyant et plus stable du 2ème réseau de test).

What about a naming service based on planetary names?

Mercury… Pluto :fire:

Let’s go Galactic!

Came up with >>>> Goerli X / Goerli Y / Goerli Z :joy: :ok_hand: Simple is good.
IMO we should keep Goerli because everyone familiar with this word :heart:

I think we can use planetary names, such as starknet Jupiter

I will suggest Spacenet

I would suggest to increase the TPS of the starknet network, so that more developers can test in one system, which can better detect the pressure resistance of the starknet network, instead of spending time on building another test network and wasting time.

I like “Staerker” or “Strongest” :wink:
