Handshake is a decentralized, open-source cryptocurrency and blockchain protocol that aims to provide a decentralized alternative to the current domain name system (DNS) and certificate authority (CA) system. It uses a consensus algorithm similar to that of Bitcoin, but it is designed to be more flexible and adaptable to new use cases, such as decentralized naming systems.
The Handshake blockchain acts as a decentralized public registry for domain names and certificate authority. It enables anyone to register a domain name and associate it with an IP address without the need for a centralized authority. This allows for more censorship-resistant, permissionless and decentralized internet.
This video will walk you through the steps of installing an ASIC miner from Goldshell, which mines Handshake (HNS) tokens. If you are looking to store your HNS tokens in your own private wallet, I recommend using the official Handshake wallet, which is a software also call BOB wallet.
