What is Handshake

The Internet is losing privacy, free speech, and security. Handshake makes the Internet more secure and places ownership back in your hands.

Top-Level Domains (TLDs)

Handshake names are top-level domains like .com and .org. Register a Handshake TLD (i.e. .satoshi) and create any domain you want (i.e. whos.satoshi, im.satoshi, craigisnot.satoshi).

Unstoppable names

Handshake names are censorship-resistant, seizure-resistant, and tamper-proof because they are stored on a Proof-of-Work blockchain.

Unlimited use cases

You can point your Handshake name to any digital asset. Host your website, use your name to receive crypto, or come up with your own use case!
