Handshake launch

Handshake is launching!

2020/2/3: Handshake mainnet launch. HNS coins can be mined but other transactions are disabled. Namebase will also launch at the same time.

2020/2/17: All Handshake transactions are enabled. You can now claim your Handshake airdrop, transfer coins, and bid on the first batch of Handshake names released* for bidding. The Namebase waitlist contest ends (HNS rewards will be distributed in the coming weeks). Anyone can sign up for Namebase and bid on names.

2020/3/1: The first Handshake name auctions have closed. The lucky winners truly own their names and can use the power of decentralized DNS to build whatever they want! You can manage your DNS settings in the Namebase dashboard.

*Handshake names are released for bidding over the course of 52 weeks.
