“Handshake (HNS) is a decentralized drop-in root anchor for DNS and public PoW blockchain. This piece was a collaboration between Andre O’Shea and Steven D. McKie to showcase a meeting of worlds as the digital melds with the physical, w/ names on Handshake as the root of the now growing decentralized web. As the technical centerpiece for the “New Internet”, HNS is an example of what the hard work of enlightened idealists can do for the greater good when we all work together.
