A deep dive into Handshake domain names.
I talk to a lot of people who believe blockchain-based domains will solve all of the internet’s problems. They dismiss any counter-arguments and questions. Nole Oppermann of Hey TX is not one of those people. He’s a big believer in blockchain domains (especially Handshake), but he also recognizes the shortcomings and challenges these domains face in order to go mainstream. Let’s dig in.

Mr. Allemann (Andrew),
Just taking a moment to commend the quality of podcast episode #411. It was NOT plagued with bias and domain politics; which is something any voice looking to cover the domain name space in this era would benefit from replicating. Kudos on hosting a discussion with ‘fluid objectivity’ and ‘fair inquiries’.
As an extension of our praise for this episode, we’d also recommend a balanced incorporation of ‘centralized domain shortfalls’ in future episodes where ‘decentralized domain shortcomings’ are being cited. This ensures the audience knows neither is perfect; but both are domain name ‘options’ at their core.
Wishing you continued success!
