“Name-the-Net” - Vote for the Mainnet GA Codename
In early May, we launched a community campaign to give the IoTeX community the chance to pick the codename for Mainnet GA – we received over 150 responses, thank you!
All submitted codenames were required to be anagrams of the name of a famous innovator. The four finalists (codename + innovator) are listed below:
Machina means “of the machine” and describes a new solution that solves a seemingly unsolvable problem, just like IoTeX! Machina is an anagram of Richard Feynman, a Nobel Prize winning innovator regarded as one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century. Famous for his work on Quantum Theory and the Manhattan Project.
Mantis is an insect thought to have supernatural powers by early civilizations and known for its calm and collected “praying” stance. Mantis is an anagram of Alan “Mathison” Turing, a British computer scientist that contributed greatly to theoretical computer science. Famous for the Turing machine, one of the first general-purpose computers.
Slate is commonly used in regards to a “blank slate” or a fresh start based on something in its original state, yet to be changed by people or experiences. Slate is an anagram of Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American inventor best known for his contributions to modern electricity systems. Famous for the Tesla coil and alternating-current (AC) electricity.
Timber is high-quality wood that is suitable for building or for carpentry. Timber is an anagram of Tim Berners-Lee, a British engineer and computer scientist best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. He is currently a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
