The Internet is losing privacy, free speech, and security. Handshake makes the Internet more secure and places ownership back in your hands.
♦What is HANDSHAKE?
“Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root DNS naming zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities and naming systems.” -handshake.org
♦What is NAMEBASE?
Namebase is an exchange and registrar for Handshake, a naming protocol that enables the decentralized ownership of top-level domains or TLDs (e.g. .com, .org) for websites, email addresses, and cryptocurrency wallet addresses.
3 Points to consider
→Eliminates the tyrannic control of ICANN
→Allows us to reap the financial benefit of our creativity
→Truly returns the internet to the people
“Enough is enough! The time has come to wrench away the unwarranted authority of the few bloated entities that reap all the financial rewards of domain naming rights.” -local internet enthusiast
Let us remove the chains from around our necks and allow creativity to flow. The restrictive nature of domain names and categories therein only serves to further diminish our freedom to produce and profit from our own content.
A RINGING ENDORSEMENT
“We’re thrilled to work with Namebase and be able to offer pricing data for Handshake so soon after its launch,” said Nomics CEO @Clay Collins. “We’re impressed with everything Namebase and the Handshake network are doing to make the Internet stronger and more resistant to censorship. I’ve been personally following the project for a long time.”
Change is coming. And that’s a good thing. Now, anyone can register and manage TLDs (think .com or .org) instead of a single private company owning them all and leasing them to the rest of us.
HNS can be purchased on the Namebase platform with either USD or Bitcoin (BTC). Namebase also offers cloud and offline storage options for those who aren’t actively bidding.
Anyone in possession of the native Handshake token (HNS) can bid on Handshake domains. Winners register their names on the network’s Proof-of-Work blockchain. Namebase facilitates the purchase and exchange of HNS tokens as well as the auction of Handshake domains and their registration on the blockchain. Check this out
