We’re embarking on a journey to unify Horizen under one cohesive naming convention. Horizen’s development capabilities have grown massively over the last two years and we’ve developed many components including products, nodes, software updates, and sidechains. We haven’t yet identified a great naming strategy for all these components, but that’s about to change!
We are excited to announce that the overarching theme of our project is “Celestial Objects”.
We are looking to you, the community, to help us decide on themes for Horizen’s individual components, which include SDK Software Releases, Sidechain Software Releases, Products/Wallets, Node Clients
All themes should relate to “Celestial Objects.”
Moons or Craters of Earth’s Moon are both great submissions!
- These are both themes that are scalable, there are many moons and many craters on Earth’s Moon.
- They are both related to the Celestial Objects theme.
Betelgeuse, Alnilam, or Rigel are not great submissions. They are not themes and they are not scalable. Although, they have the potential to be great if submitted as “The Stars of the Orion Constellation”. So, be sure to really think about your submissions. There are plenty of great options. 🙂
Four lucky winners will receive $30 in ZEN, a Horizen t-shirt of their choice, and eternal glory in the community! 😉
