Renaming Bitcoin Cash forks

It has been known that the former most popular implementation of Bitcoin Cash (Bitcoin ABC) named each of the semi-annual Hash Forks.

In Knuth's code I have respected that nomenclature, but I have to confess that I never liked it. But it was practical for me to follow the naming so that we all speak the same language.

ABC just named the hard fork scheduled for May 15, 2021 as Tachyon.

The names of ABC are as follows:

  • 2018-May-15: Monolith

  • 2018-Nov-15: Magnetic Anomaly

  • 2019-May-15: Great Wall

  • 2019-Nov-15: Graviton

  • 2020-May-15: Phonon

  • 2020-Nov-15: Axion

  • 2021-May-15: Tachyon

But, now that Bitcoin ABC has decided to create its own cryptocurrency and not support Bitcoin Cash anymore, I found it interesting not to follow its nomenclature anymore. That is why I have decided not only not to use his new name, Tachyon, but to change the previous names to something that I like more. So in Knuth's code we will use the following names:

  • 2018-May-15: Pythagoras

  • 2018-Nov-15: Euclid

  • 2019-May-15: Pisano

  • 2019-Nov-15: Mersenne

  • 2020-May-15: Fermat

  • 2020-Nov-15: Euler

  • 2021-May-15: Gauss

Greetings to all who continue to support Bitcoin Cash: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, decentralized and dictatorship free.

Interesante. ¿Cada nombre habla sobre una característica esencial del evento?

Cada nombre pertenece a cada uno de los HF desde 2018. Hubieron 2 previos que fueron el de agosto de 2017 (UAHF) y el de noviembre de 2017 (DAA), pero en ese entonces no se le ponía un nombre como a estos otros.

Claro, pero, ¿la selección fue al azar o nos hablan de una virtud de cada matemático?

PD: BTW, ya no sigues el patrón de ABC, puedes ponerles nombre si quieres jeje
