Where did the name KILT come from?

The BOTLabs team was looking for something that represents identity without revealing identity. And that’s what a kilt is. All the different lines and colors in the pattern tell something about you: which clan you are from, that you are probably Scottish, etc. But it doesn’t reveal your first name and it doesn’t say if you have a university diploma. That’s also what KILT Protocol is all about – selective disclosure.

The purse that is worn with a kilt is called a “sporran” – that’s where the KILT wallet got its name.

And of course in the real world, in a sporran you might find another wonderful thing from Scotland – Scottish whisky. So the KILT mainnet is called Spiritnet after Scotland’s famous brew.
