Testnet Namespace Creation

A Namespaces is a blockchain equivalent to a website domain. It is a unique place to link your game company, its games, and tokens (SDAs) on the blockchain.

Creating a namespace for game onboarding is necessary as it enables gamers to verify their tokens' authenticity easily and for systems to read off the blockchain and display recognizable names.

Step 1

  • Re-access the Testnet Web Wallet on your mobile phone (CLICK HERE).
  • Make sure your network is Sirius Testnet 2 in the network dropdown.
  • Select your Xarcade wallet from the Select wallet dropdown.
  • Enter your password.
  • Select Sign In.
  • You will arrive at the home screen, where you can view your Xarcade account.

Step 2

On the Create Namespace page:

  • Select your Xarcade account (it should be your already set Primary account).
  • Select New Root Namespace from the Namespace dropdown field.
  • Provide a name for your Namespace in the Name field in lowercase characters (e.g., the name of your company or project or your developer name).
  • Enter the number of days you would like to rent the Namespace. The maximum is 365 days. You can renew the Namespace.
  • Enter your password, and select Register Namespace.

A Namespace consists of your unique chosen name, similar to an internet domain. The name must appear unique in the network and may have a maximum length of 64 characters. Permitted characters are: a, b, c, …, z, 0, 1, 2, …, 9, _ , -.
