Creating a new naming scheme for DApp releases

MR Michael Roberts Public Seen by 139

Dani and I discussed DApp releases and as we agreed we want to bring in the broader community into the process of helping us with bugs before the release goes to Beta. However we wanted to create something fun that could distinguish one release from the next. This might be names of trees, rivers, cities, ships, you name it.. Let us know what you think of the idea and if you have any suggestions?

1 - I am big on food names currently, especially foreign ones. Being a german speaker I can keep the funny words coming faster and longer than the DApp can iterate.

2 - Totally different direction - it would be nice to derive from greek/latin - give people the opportunity to learn about the roots of language while looking for the next release name ;)

Types of mushroom? Lions Mane, McKenni, Portabello, haha theres loads of them - infinite funny names if you add German! :p

Ohh man I love this one. It's food, it's medicine, it has Latin names..

Can we just go with it for speed?

Lions Mane: Hericium erinaceus is an edible and medicinal mushroom belonging to the tooth fungus group. Native to North America, Europe and Asia it can be identified by its long spines, its appearance on hardwoods and its tendency to grow a single clump of dangling spines. Wikipedia

Love this idea.

Thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts and suggestions. For this release we will use the Latin name for an edible mushroom.
