Update July 14, 2023: Next CL upgrade named Electra on ACDC call 113
An E-star name is likely needed for the Consensus Layer upgrade after Deneb,
(e.g. Electra) upgrade could possibly be for the Verge + other features.
The consensus layer uses star names for upgrades whilst the execution layer uses Devcon cities.
See: Post-Merge Network Upgrade Naming Schemes
Upcoming upgrade names:
Shapella (Shanghai + Capella)
Dencun (Cancun + Deneb)
Making the next upgrade after that likely to be Prague + E star name.
@protolambda has already suggested Practra (Prague + Electra)
Electra would then be a great follow-up star name: Electra is a star in the Taurus constellation (bull after bear )
(Apologies if I am stepping on the process for selecting star upgrade names as I’m not a core dev)
E Star names
From: List of proper names of stars - Wikipedia
Poll is for signaling purposes only.
Preferred star name
Pari suggested that the name for Eletra + Prague should be “Petra”, which sounds much nicer and pronounceable than Practra.
Enif + Prague could be Pranif
Although Electra sounds good in pronunciation, I voted for Enif because Electra complex was on page 1 when I googled Electra. It’s not the meme I’d want to play…
On the other hand, Enif: the brightest star in the northern constellation of Pegasus. ꒰ঌ ໒꒱
@timbeiko’s poll showed (some) community support for merged names (CL star + EL city)
@EvanVanNessEth suggests Errai
