Hello, I tried myself with some Bitcoin development. For this I used of 
course the Bitcoin testnet. However it took me one hour to sync the 
blockchain with around 1538358 blocks. In my opinion that is too much 
for a testnet. Especially the blockchain size with around 26GB is so 
much. Would it be possible to reset the testnet with a new genesis block 
? And if so, can we setup a fixed cycle for resetting the testnet (For 
example every second 1st of January) ?
