(感谢大家百忙之中抽出时间来参与本期 HNSfans&Namebase 的AMA活动!!!我是主持人🍓🍓🍓)

We are honored to invite Johnny Wu to share with us: “Handshake: Decentralizing Control of the Internet
本期AMA主题交流会我们有幸的邀请了Namebase的Johnny Wu,与我们分享本期交流主题《Handshake: Decentralizing Control of the Internet

🍓:Hi~Johnny,Welcome!I’m very happy to have you here ! Would you like to introduce yourself to our community partners!
(欢迎!欢迎!很开心邀请到Namebase的“吴彦祖”!请Johnny来和我们社区的小伙伴简单介绍下自己吧!)

Johnny Wu:Thank you for having me! Similar to 🍓🍓🍓 how  manages the HNSfans community, I manage our community at Namebase.
(大家好,我是Namebase社区的负责人,很高兴来到HNS中文社区!)

🍓🍓🍓has done an awesome job organizing the hnsfans community and there’s lots I can learn from her. Thanks for having me!
(🍓🍓🍓在组织hnsfans社区方面做得很棒,我从她那里学到了很多东西。谢谢你邀请我来到HNS中文社区!)

🍓:We’ve got new friends in our community. Let’s first introduce HNS to our new friends.
(最近我们社群多了很多新朋友,我们首先来跟新朋友大概介绍下HNS吧。)

Johnny Wu:Welcome new friends! HNS stands for the Handshake coin, and is a cryptocurrency used to bid on Handshake names.
(欢迎新朋友的到来!HNS代表握手币,是一种用于对握手域名进行竞价的加密货币。)

🍓:How are Handshake names different than traditional domain names?
(那么握手域名和传统域名有什么不同呢?)

Johnny Wu:There’s actually lot that differs Handshake from traditional domains, but the main 2 points are:
(HNS域名和传统域名不同点还蛮多的,主要有两方面:)

1. Traditional domain names are subdomains that you rent from top-level domain owners like “.com” or “.net” whereas Handshake names are top-level domains that you actually own.
(传统域名是从顶级域名所有者那里租用的子域名,如“.com”或“.net”,而Handshake域名是你实际拥有的顶级域名。)

For example, instead of renting “johnnywu.com” from “.com”, I own “.johnnywu”, and thus also own “home.johnnywu”, “linkedin.johnnywu”, etc.
(例如,不是从“ .com”租“ johnnywu.com”, 我是拥有“. johnnywu”,因此也拥有“ home.johnnywu”,“ linkedin.johnnywu”等。)

2. Traditional domains live on centralized servers and can be easily censored and taken from you at any time.
(传统域名存在于集中式服务器上,可以随时轻易地被审查和取走。)

Handshake names live on a decentralized blockchain that nobody controls, making Handshake names uncensorable. Nobody can take your Handshake name from you.
(Handshake域名则存在于无人控制的去中心化区块链上,这让Handshake域名变得无法审查, 没人可以获取你的域名。)

🍓: Thank you for your answer,I would also like to know, what problems does Handshake solve?
(感谢你的回答,我想问下Handshake可以解决什么问题呢?)

Johnny Wu: Again, I can highlight 2 main points:
(一样强调两个点:)

1. Traditional top-level domains are prohibitively expensive.
(传统的顶级域名价格相当昂贵。)

If you wanted to get a new top-level domain in the traditional system, for example “.hnsfans”, you would need to apply to an organization called “ICANN”, who charges an application fee.
(如果你想在传统系统中获得新的顶级域名,例如“.hnsfans”,你需要向一个名为“ICANN”的组织提出申请,该组织会收取申请费。)

This is a fee you pay regardless of whether you get the domain or not. Any guesses to how much this application fee costs?
(无论你最后是否获得域名,这都是要支付的费用。该申请费要多少钱,大家要猜测一下吗?)

It costs $185,000 to apply for a new top-level domain,Reminder, you pay this fee even if they reject your application
(申请新的顶级域名需要花费$ 185,000,值得注意的是,即使他们拒绝了你的申请,你也要支付这笔费用。)

It’s pretty ridiculous. Handshake instead distributes top-level domains in auctions that anyone can participate in. This way literally ANYONE can own a top-level domain
(这太荒谬了。相反,握手会在任何人都可以参与的拍卖中分配顶级域名。这样一来,任何人都可以拥有顶级域名。)

2. Current namespaces are heavily centralized and controlled.
(当前的Namespace是中心化且可控的。)

Your usernames on WeChat, Twitter, Facebook, and your domain names are all controlled by centralized organizations who can delete and block your usernames and domain names at will
(你在微信、推特、脸书上的用户名,以及你的域名都是中心化机构控制的,这些机构可以随意删除和屏蔽你的用户名和域名。)

As mentioned before, Handshake names live on a decentralized blockchain that nobody controls or can prevent others from accessing.
(就像我前面提到的那样,Handshake域名存在于一个去中心化的区块链上。)

🍓: If nobody controls Handshake,then who receives the winning bids from Handshake auctions?
(没人控制握手的话那谁可以拿到Handshake拍卖后中标的HNS?)

Johnny Wu: Nobody, winning bids get burned by the network and disappear forever. It has a small deflationary effect on the price of HNS.
(没人可以拿到拍卖后的HNS,中标的HNS会被燃烧掉,永远消失。这使得HNS整体属于一个通货紧缩的状态,对HNS价格的影响也很小。)

🍓: How can I access Handshake domains? Can I visit them in my browser?
(如何访问Handshake域名?我可以在浏览器中访问它们吗?)

Johnny Wu:Yes you can! There’s a number of ways of accessing Handshake domains, the easiest is using HNS.to. For example, to visit my dLink page on johnnywu/, you can type “hns.to/johnnywu” in any browser. You can try this on any Handshake domain
(是的,访问握手域名的方法有很多种,最简单的方法是你可以使用hns.to,比如要访问johnnywu/,去我的dLink页,可以在任何浏览器中,尝试“hns.to/johnnywu”)

If you don’t want to add “hns.to/” every time you want to access a Handshake domain, you can also set up NextDNS to directly resolve Handshake names. Once you’ve done so, you can use any browser and just type in “johnnywu/” to access my dLink — no more “hns.to/”
(如果不想每次访问“握手”域名时都添加“ hns.to/”,还可以将NextDNS设置为直接解析“握手”名称。完成此操作后,你可以使用任何浏览器,只需输入“ johnnywu /”即可访问我的dLink-不再需要“ hns.to/”)

There’s also currently a mobile browser called Puma Browser that resolves Handshake, and it looks like Brave is adopting Handshake soon as well
(当前还存在一个名为Puma Browser的移动浏览器,它可以解决握手问题,Brave也即将兼容握手。)

There are many more ways to access Handshake as well, which this will help: https://learn.namebase.io/starting-from-zero/how-to-access-handshake-sites
(有很多的方法可以访问握手,参考网址:https://learn.namebase.io/starting-from-zero/how-to-access-handshake-sites

🍓: Thank you Johnny,  What’s the relationship between Namebase and Handshake?Did Namebase create Handshake?
(感谢Johnny,那么Namebase和Handshake有什么关系?Namebase创建了Handshake吗?)

Johnny Wu: A common misunderstanding! To clarify, Namebase did NOT create Handshake. Namebase is an onramp for Handshake and we, just like you all, are merely big fans of Handshake.
(很多人都误会了,在这里澄清一下:Namebase没有创建Handshake, Namebase是Handshake的入口,我们和你们一样,也是Handshake的忠实粉丝。)

Our goal is to make Handshake easy to use to enable mass adoption, and you can use our platform to easily trade HNS, as well as bid on, purchase, sell, and use Handshake names.
(我们的目标是使Handshake易于使用,以实现大规模采用,让用户可以使用我们的平台轻松交易HNS,以及投标、购买、销售和使用Handshake域名。)

Essentially we’re such big fans of Handshake that we built our entire business around it.
(实际上,我们是Handshake的超级粉丝,因此我们的整个业务都围绕着它展开。)

🍓: So truly no one owns Handshake?
(所以真的没有人拥有Handshake?)

Johnny Wu: Nobody. Handshake is a totally decentralized protocol and is entirely community-run.
(没有人可以拥有Handsahke,它是一个完全去中心化的协议,并且完全由社区运营。)

Anyone is welcome to use the Handshake logo as they please, anyone can build on and use Handshake, and anyone can call themselves a “Director of Handshake”. 
(任何人都可以随意使用Handshake的logo,任何人都能建设和使用handshake,同时每个人都可以称自己为“Handshake负责人”。)

🍓: What are Namebase’s plans to get Handshake adopted by major browsers like Chrome?
(对于Namebase让Chrome等主流浏览器采用Handshake有什么计划呢?)

Johnny Wu:While there are many important activities that need to be done to grow Handshake, the metric we care most about is the number of Handshake names in use.
(虽然需要进行许多好的活动来增加Handshake的知名度,但我们最关心的是正在使用中的Handshake域名的数量。)

we track this by looking at the number of names who’ve had their default DNS settings changed.
(我们通过查看更改默认DNS设置名称的数量来跟踪这一点。)

To increase this number, we want to attract more developers to build on Handshake and we’re doing so by creating example apps like dLinks and Handshake logins to help showcase what Handshake can do.
为了增加使用中的域名数量,我们希望吸引更多的开发人员在Handshake上进行开发,并通过创建示例应用程序(例如dLinks和Handshake登录名)来帮助展示Handshake的功能。

(https://namebase.io/dlinks, an easy way for anyone to create a decentralized website without technical experience)(https://namebase.io/dlinks,有一种简单的方法,任何人都可以在没有技术经验的情况下创建一个去中心化的网站。)

(Handshake logins:you’ll be able to log in with just your Handshake name instead of username and password)
(关于Handshake logins:你可以只使用Handshake域名而不是用户名或密码登录。)

Once there’s enough individuals building on and using Handshake, the browser adoption will follow (Puma Browser already supports Handshake and Brave is already planning to integrate Handshake).
一旦有足够的人在开发和使用Handshake,浏览器就会考虑支持handshake(Puma Browser已经支持Handshake,并且Brave已经计划集成Handshake)

The best way any Handshake enthusiast can help grow Handshake adoption is:
1. publicly showing your support and telling your friends about it!
2. trying out Handshake creations that developers build (see: http://namebase.io/showcase)
任何HNS爱好者都可以帮助提高Handshake的知名度,最佳方法是:
1. 公开展示你对HNS的支持并告诉你身边的朋友!
2. 尝试开发人员开发的Handshake应用和服务(例如http://namebase.io/showcase

Public Q & A

🍓:Thank you for your wonderful answer,NOW!!!  second part—-Public Q & A,you guys are free to ask.
(感谢Johnny的回答,接下来是自由提问的时间,关于HNS和namabase大家有什么想问Johnny的,现在可以提问了。)

Fans NO1: How can developer make an handshake app and submit to namebase.  Is there any examples ?”
(开发人员如何制作握手app并提交到名称库。有例子吗?”)

Johnny Wu:Build it and share it with us. dword.johnxu/ is a great example(dword.johnxu /就是一个很好的例子,如果你创建了请记得与我们分享。)

Fans NO2:We know that handshake company currently has about 100000 top-level domain names in reserve, but what about the future development after the auction of these 100000 top-level domain names.”
(我们知道握手公司目前有大约100000个顶级域名储备,但是在拍卖这100000个顶级域名之后,未来的发展又如何呢?”)

Johnny Wu:There is no such thing as a “Handshake company”, Handshake is a decentralized protocol that nobody owns. The names of the top 100k websites according to Alexa are reserved for the owners of those websites to claim on Handshake, they are not for auction.
(没有所谓的“握手公司”,握手是一个分散的协议,没有人拥有它。根据Alexa排名,前10万的网站的域名保留给这些网站所有者用于“握手”声明,它们不用于拍卖。)

Fans NO3:If the handshake domain is decentralized, will it become a dark net, arms trading, pornography, and illegal use?”
(握手的去中心化,是否会成为暗网、军火交易、色情,非法使用?)

Johnny Wu:Handshake was created to bring control of the Internet back to the people instead of a small group of corporations. It’s ultimately up to the individual to choose how they use their names
(和那些机构不一样的是,握手是为了将互联网的控制权交还给人们,如何使用自己的名字最终取决于个人。)

Fans NO4:Do you have a domain name to access?www.namebase.io Or www.hnsfans.com
www.namebase.io 或者 www.hnsfans.com 有握手的域名可以访问吗?)

Johnny Wu:Yes, the handshake name is not only for domain name, but also for your network identity. For example, in https://nmd.co/ All account names are handshake domain names
(是的,握手域名不只是域名的用处,也可以当你的网络身份。比如在https://nmd.co/的平台上,所有帐号用户名都是握手域名。)

🍓:Thank you Johnny,Now we have a deeper understanding of HNS and we also firmly believe that it will have a better future. Tank you!
(因为时间的原因,我们AMA到这里就结束了,我们对HNS有了更深刻的理解,也相信他会越来越好,再次感谢Johnny,也感谢大家。)
