Hey all, I'm recruiting 3-5 Namers who can act as ambassadors for one of these 2 outreach efforts:
1. Integration with other decentralization protocols
2. Introduce Handshake to university blockchain groups/clubs
Integration with other decentralization projects is important for Handshake to be successful because it gives Handshake names real usage. I have a list of projects prepared and would like 2 or 3 Namers to help both grow that list (involves conducting research about what projects are out there and how Handshake might be able to help) and also do the outreach (I'll share example templates that have worked for me that you can use to start). The dWeb movement as a whole is currently rather siloed, and the pie in the sky outcome for our Handshake integration efforts is to get the entire dWeb community to come together — dWeb Con 2022?
Outreach to university blockchain groups may also be important because in my experience, university developers seem to be the most open to building with new things like Handshake and university students also seeemt o have the most energy to push movements forward (see: student activism). I have a list of universities with blockchain programs and would like 1 or 2 Namers to help both grow that list and conduct the outreach.
If you're interested in helping Handshake and the dWeb grow as an ambassador for Handshake, please either DM me atin the Namer Community Discord —johnnywu/— or DM me on Twitter at so we can get you involved! You can also schedule a time for us to chat 1:1 atdiscord.namebase/calendar.johnnywu/
We've been talking about a dashboard overhaul for some time now, and I'm excited to share that the new, customizable dashboard is live. Our initial goal was to make navigation cleaner, and faster, while providing a dashboard experience customizable to the needs of all of the different types of Namebase users.
I think our design/dev teams nailed it with this one. This new dashboard lets you add, remove, and move any piece of it. Take out the Bitcoin price ticker if it makes you sad to see. Add the Namer News module if you want to see posts directly on your dashboard. There's a number of new modules already live that we hope you play with.
We're also particularly excited about this design because, since its module based, we can add features and panels to it super easily moving forward. If you have ideas for what you'd like to see next, or any feedback, please share!
Mark Smith and I launched hnsnameclaim.com about 10 days ago and have had a number of people submit names since then and today we had our complete cycle of two names gifted and then getting claimed. The names were ClayCollins and Nomics. We had a great response from the community with that occurence we now feel that we are on our way to some great success. I have a couple of more names that have been claimed, one from Jesse and the other anonymous and I will send them out this aft.
Thanks all for the support and interest and if you have one or many names that you wold like to have someone gift on your behalf then head over to Hnsnameclaim.com and fill out the form.
Hey all - I did some rough math based on the May SLD sales figures to extrapolate annual proceeds and yields for each TLD that sold a material number of subdomains. This is definitely a back-of-envelope exercise, but I'm excited to look at actual trends as more time passes and we have more data.
Please let me know any thoughts on the methodology or any other critiques - hoping to start more conversations around how we analyze Handshake domains!
