Get the domain name .MoonKid [here](https://porkbun.com/tld/moonkid)! While this is a shill comment I am hoping the title of this Thread makes it almost acceptable. I recently launched the TLD .MoonKid on the Handshake Protocol. If you're familiar with ENS AKA .ETH, it is very similar. Both are decentralized and serve as wallet addresses. The domain went live on PorkBun last week and will be available on all registrars that support HNS next week. As always, DYOR. To the moon baby!!
I take it pretty serious. Although i only own btc and then a bunch of altcoin miners. I am keeping the mined tokens in the respective altcoins until the next bullrun. Tokens i am mining: MXC, HNS, STC, DPR and unfortunately HNT.
>SIA requires you to register with a DNS like Google or Sia and so isn't very resistant against censorship. No it doesn't. You are confusing Sia and Skynet. And with that said, Skynet portals do bit require it either. I am currently working on setting up a Skynet portal that is completely decentralized with its own dns and is accessible using a HNS domain. Sia on the other hand has nothing to do with DNS. It is an fully decentralized storage network that has over 600 independently owned and operated hosts in 53 countries. Meaning it spans half the globe already. On top of that a host can be run on a simple RPi. So no Amazon or Google is involved at all. It is truely decentralized, I mean that literally. >All that said, I think we're just early. I settled on Ethereum for remote data needs but have been looking for better solutions since gas prices first jumped over 3 gwei Then look into Filebase which offers decentralized storage with S3 compatibility for $5.99/tb/month. They also offer and IPFS implementation which uses the Sia network. Making a IPFS solution which is completely decentralized. >Once one of these protocols is thoroughly battle tested Sia has been battle tested far longer than Eth. This network predates Ethereum and has never once crashed or has a lost of data. >The largest benefit of using ETH to store data is how unambiguous the network is The Sia network is literally running on servers in people's basements all over the world. On top of that, all data uploaded is reed-Solomon erasure encoded and uploaded to the network with 3x Geo redundancy by default. Im sorry, but based on everything you have said, it is clear you have not taken more than a half second to look into this. But it's your loss.
Does this create issues with ENS? or is each domain limited to it's respective Blockchain and therefore duplicates can exist (separated by chains)? Just curious. I thought/think ENS was/is interesting, but this is the first I've heard of HNS.
tldr; Handshake (HNS) is a top level domain (TLD) blockchain that allows you to buy and own your own “.com” (where the TLD is .com) and host on it direct, issue/sell SLDs (“normal domains as we know them now”) or use as your user ID. HNS’s market cap is lower than 500 other coins, according to CoinGecko. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*
This is 4 months old. I think. Some of these have done really wel like ROSE and DRCT and HNS. But some has not seen any growth so far. Like DVPN, MIR But I do stand by their utility. They have potential. Haven't followed up on how the Dev's and community doing on these. I would suggest you check their activity before moving forward
Monero, SCRT, DVPN, LBRY, HNS are true reflections of what decentralization means. Privacy.and Freedom. HBAR is the future of technology, but is highly centralized. It probably wont go up much in price but once they allow staking, the fees will be amazing. KDA, incredible potential being a PoW coin with PoS capabilities, smart contracts and such. HNT and MXC will be the major players of IoT networking in 10-20 years Sorry, 7 coins that stole my heart
It’s definitely not something that can’t move on weekends, nights, or holidays for arbitrary reasons. It’s not when ACH transfers take multiple days to settle even during a business week. It’s not having 2-3 middlemen between simple transactions like swiping a debit or credit card for anything you purchase other than the customer and seller It’s not having the Western Unions of the world charging arbitrarily large %s to wire money across the world. If all that seems efficient to you then we’re at a non-starter Speed of settlement doesn’t automatically qualify efficiency. There’s literally hundreds of other factors when talking about efficiency of a monetary system. If efficiency was the speed of settlement then sol xlm and trx would be the top 3 crypto projects on the planet. I’m not a BTC maximalist by any stretch of the imagination. I’m actually not a huge fan even. Tbh, I’m a Layer 0 kind of guy (DOT, ATOM), and then some L1 PoW alternatives like KDA, ERG. I hold some staking L1’s too, but I also mine as well. Not btc, or anything that costs me much at all in electric either. HNS, KDA, and HNT - none of the equipment was expensive (at least when I got them), I got it all on a minimum wage salary, and none of it costs me much at all to maintain or supply electric to. So even with all my biases on the table, I still do not concede whatsoever that “Bitcoin is extremely inefficient compared to traditional banking”
Web3 should not copy Web2. That's not innovation or progress. It's replacing one with the other. For example, do we need to replace current domain names (unstoppable, decentraweb, ENS, HNS)? They work - the average person seems OK with the status quo... It feels like we are just making shit up about improvements to try and create a new economy or sell new projects. Rght now it's just new entrepreneurs are looking to get rich by literally transplanting web2 mediums into Web3.
They are gonna try to kill web 3 you mean. Tech companies profit off of data. Nip the data and you nip their profits. If the web becomes decentralized, you will keep all your data! Coins like handshake HNS will most likely explode next “real” bull run
It is weird that we still haven't heard anything on this yet. I've added dxpool and Poolin as alternates for my altcoin mining (no choice really thanks to ViaBTC). Both of these pools have already added alternate .net domains for their mining pools while we have had nothing but continued silence from ViaBTC. I also wrote a negative review on them a while back when I sent a HNS deposit that was just lost and never credited and have not heard from them to this day: [https://jamesachambers.com/review-viabtc-mining-pool-negative/](https://jamesachambers.com/review-viabtc-mining-pool-negative/) Verdict: they suck!
Depends on the application. You can launch a client rendered website on [Skynet](https://docs.siasky.net/) with great ease. Literally drag and drop your web app and its deployed on a decentralized network. Then just setup domain pointers HNS, ENS and your good to go. Like the current iteration of the web, it can be language agnostic and depends what you wish to achieve and what SDKs are available.
HNS aka handshake is an og NFT project with real use case. It’s a decentralized naming protocol that is backwards compatible with the existing DNS system. There no better use case than an HNS top-level-domain. Basically owning your own “.com” Super risky, but if it works then huge upside.
Got in on the ICP airdrop and Handshake HNS, and Illuvium airdrop, that’s the best so far, as I put some in sushiswap earning 500% apy locked for 1 year. So ILV has since 10x’d and I will 5x from staking too, so 50x so far if the price holds... Fingers crossed it doesn’t crash before lambo. Free money is the best money.
Not lightyears. This problem has already beed fixed. Unstoppable domains are blockchain human-readable decentralized domains you can purchase and tie a website to or... PAYMENT ADDRESSES. Your friend doesn't even need to specific what coin you want to be paid in aparently - YOU get to do that. Some wallets and exchanges ALREADY SUPPOR THIS. So you can simply send to 'padizzledonk' and know 100% it will get there. I'm a fan of the HNS implementation over UD. But HNS adoption has a ways to go even though its a more powerful protocol.
Handshake has a decentralized naming service. HNS is a decentralized domain name authority that aims to be the DNS of different apps or services. Currently people lose domain names (sometimes without a clear reason) because they purchased the name from somewhere like godaddy that is a central authority. With handshake we could avoid those issues. I recognize DNS isn’t the only thing in the TCP/IP stack but it’s definitely a good step in the right direction!
If you go to coingecko or coinmarketcap there will be a "markets" tab on the coin's page, listing all the exchanges that list trading pairs for that coin. The exchange with the most volume for HNS right now is cemx which seems to be a decent exchange from my experience.
If you thought 2018 was bad, just wait until this next crash when there are 6x more projects in the space now that will faceplant. But I don’t heed any warnings, even my own. I’m sitting on bags of AMP, KDA, HNS, CKB, and VET. Not *only* these five, but sizeable enough that these 5 = about a quarter of my portfolio
I like KDA HNS CKB ONE & VET…as altcoin picks. But OP said long-term hold. It stands to reason that we all have many of the same “blue chips”. If you get an answer like btc eth ada, it’s because a lot of people have those as long term holds. Many hedge funds hold the same blue chips.
tldr; Handshake is a decentralized naming system that allows for Top-Level-Domains (TLDs). You can bid on new names, transfer & own names, and use these names on various platforms. I gained 27% HNS from my initial investment within a month simply reselling my names. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*
if you want to start using some of the tech, try out siasky.net it's the biggest portal into the decentralized web3 Skynet. it's a L2 to the sia decentralized cloud storage network. you can create websites on there using HNS domains, which are decentralized TLDs. the best part is if you don't like the siasky.net portal, you're always able to access the same sites using a different portal, or even setup your own portal.
I would personally invest it in utility coins, although it's probably very risky. I have most of my portfolio in SC, GLM, and AKT. I also have a bigger portion in HNS, MYST, and STORJ. I just invest in what I can understand myself, as otherwise, I can't tell for sure what works and what doesn't - limiting scam coins at least.

I've never used brave personally. I believe firefox is more private and I like the firefox ecosystem more. but what I understand from brave is that rewards are getting smaller as more people start to use brave, which is like shooting themselves in the foot. on an unrelated note, if they changed their mood towards HNS I'd be more inclined to try them out.
I bought it around 79 cents a handshake but now it’s 21 cents for a handjob. So I’m down on my initial investment of HNS but it’s at least a 2 year hold for me. P.s it was extremely difficult to find somebody to sell me HNS, come to think of it i don’t even know how to swap or sell it now that i have it
The GLM Rewards Program requires KYC just FYI, but it's just on Ethereum so you don't have to worry about that multiple wallets thing. I have about 7 coins I'm looking at and here's a list ranging from highest to lowest: Golem/GLM, Akash/AKT, Sia/SC, Handshake/HNS, Mysterium/MYST, Storj/STORJ, Algorand/ALGO. Of these, HNS is just to make a quick buck flipping HNS-domains, and ALGO is just because I got it from a bounty. And of the rest, there are 3 seperate wallets for the 5 coins, with 3 being supported on ETH (GLM, MYST, STORJ).
Right now, I live at home and have essentially no expenses. Soon, I will have to rent an apartment but in Sweden we have both free schooling, cheap student loans and a monthly 100€ that is paid out to behaving students. This means that it's not that expensive, but I would prefer not to invest borrowed money. I also earn all my crypto, so I don't have to invest my own money. Think hackathons and bounties on Gitcoin or reward programs like the GLM Rewards Program. I also sidehustle through selling HNS domains, and that's how I've gotten a respectable amount of crypto for a student :3
From what I would think, definetily not. Atleast not remotely close to a guarantee as it would need these projects to go underground and not be touched. Investing in newer projects which have potential leads to a way bigger chance of increasing your portfolios value. If we take January 2016 as an example that I took because it was quite early in Ethereums price history, we can see that investing in Ethereum would have given you 10x as much returns as if you were to invest in Bitcoin. Besides, Bitcoin is already #1, has a huge marketcap, but no efficient use-cases in todays market, so there shouldn't be as much room for increase. The projects I look at are relatively small marketcap wise, meaning that there is room for increase, and they are backed by either tech, ICO-money, or both. And I think you're missing one vital part; I am not investing in HNS, I would be using it to invest in TLDs which I would then sell for a markup. We'll see in the future which one of us were right :)
Well spoken! If HNS gets picked up by mainstream browsers, it will be huge indeed. And just like you said, other projects like Skynet will be utilized for tons of websites, as it allows for hosting both traditional domains and skylinks. However, for HNS to "make it", it needs to do just that - without browser support, it's not all that useful, or not IMO atleast. Personally, I can rely on HNS for some nice returns and for hosting my Skynet projects. More than that? No idea, but there is a chance!
$1000 into HNS Of course, other crypto projects are good...great even! But HNS is directly tied to the backbone of the Internet. The success of HNS ensures the success of every other chain IMHO. Also, we get to move a helluva lot faster than ICANN and make buying domains on the Internet more fun and inclusive. I look forward to allowing restaurants buy .lunch and .dinner domains from me. Designers and developers can buy domains on .hexa, .colors, .coda, .crud, .dist, and more on my TLDs. I believe that once HNS takes off, .com will lose its relevance and open people's minds to even greater possibilities.
Have you considered Gitcoin bounties & hackathons? They have bounties for non technical stuff too such as blog posts or NFT-art. There are also reward programs such as the GLM Rewards Program or the HNS Ambassadory Program. The GLM one has a few non-technical categories.
You could actually earn crypto quite easily! If you have technical skills, check out bounties and hackathons on Gitcoin. There are also stuff like bounties for artwork, blog posts, and similar on there. You could also check out rewards programs like the HNS Ambassadory Program or the GLM Rewards Program - where you can get paid for being active and making content. It's how I made up most of my portfolio, and trust me when I say that it's worthwhile :)
Technology, niche, scalability in said niche, actual usability, and how big the project is. I don't invest in projects that are already big, excluding $SC. I rather invest in projects not in the top #100, which are utility tokens: $GLM, $AKT, $SC, $HNS, $MYST, $FLUX, $STORJ - which all do either compute, storage, or VPN.
Buying a miner for 750 usd, only for Handshake to crash the moment I started mining. Right now if I was selling the coins, I’m paying more for electricity. I wish I knew I would need to wait a long time to cash out profits, since 0,50 $ for HNS isn’t a stable price.
