This document is about the details of the Tezos namespaces and references for CAIP-2.
In CAIP-2 a general blockchain identification scheme is defined. This is the implementation of CAIP-2 for Tezos.
The namespace “tezos” refers to the Tezos open-source blockchain platform.
The definition for this namespace will use the
genesis-block-hash as an indentifier for different Tezos chains. The method for calculating the chain ID is as follows
tezosB58CheckEncode('Net', firstFourBytes( blake2b(msg = tezosB58CheckDecode('B', genesisBlockHash), size = 32)))
Blockchains in the “tezos” namespace are identified by their chain ID as mentioned in the Reference Definition Section.
This is a list of manually composed examples
# Tezos Mainnet tezos:NetXdQprcVkpaWU # Tezos DelphiNet (Current active testnet) tezos:NetXm8tYqnMWky1
