This Week in Handshake
↳ Two Years in Handshake On Thursday, February 3rd, Handshake turned two and we released our year-in-review covering some of the year’s top developments.
Along with the two year anniversary of the genesis block being mined, we are also approaching the two year anniversary of name auctions going live several weeks later. As renewals are required roughly every two years, the first names won in auction around this time will start expiring if not renewed by the owner.
Unrenewed names are both a second chance for the public to bid on names previously missed out on and a catalyst for burning additional $HNS from supply. A trend to keep an eye on going forward is the quantity of unrenewed names, activity around these auctions, and their effect on Handshake’s token supply.
↳ Bob Extension A pending update of the Handshake wallet and resolver browser extension will include a new standard for resolving Handshake domains and a resolver on + off toggle.
↳ HNS Halvenings Charting $HNS block rewards for the next 50 years.
