What Is Handshake?

The Handshake system is decentralized and permissionless, and it is designed to incentivize a distributed network of computers to run a domain name ownership system. In Handshake, every peer is responsible for validating and managing the root DNS naming zone, which provides an alternative to existing certificate authorities and naming systems. Various social media handles and domains across the internet rely on centralized approaches. This means that these systems are dependent on an honest system, which means they are vulnerable to cyber attacks and fraud.

Handshake seeks to solve this problem by creating a decentralized peer-to-peer internet system.

Founders of Handshake

Joseph Poon and Andrew Lee are the two main co-founders of Handshake.

Lee quit his job at Merrill Lynch to co-found Purse, the largest Bitcoin marketplace. As Purse grew, Lee explored new ways of innovating the marketplace and investing in infrastructure. He and Poon discussed the ideas behind Handshake for years before they co-founded the company. Aside from Handshake, Poon co-wrote the Plasma Papers with Ethereum's co-founder, Vitalik Buterin. 

Aside from developing Handshake, Poon co-wrote the Plasma Papers in collaboration with Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum. Despite his accounting experience, Poon got involved in the crypto space, while between jobs. He is also one of the co-founders of Lightning Network and Plasma. Other co-founders are Boyma Fahnbulleh and Christopher Jeffrey.

Features of Handshake

Handshake is not a project that seeks to fully decentralize existing DNS infrastructure. It is rather a project that aims to decentralize the root zone - and top-level domains as well.This is because apart from the root zone, the entire of DNS is already decentralized. "Handshake differs from its predecessors in that it does not support namespacing, subdomains, or aliases at the consensus layer. It does not replace DNS, but merely root servers and the zone file that contains the zone information." 

One key concept behind Handshake is its goal of decentralizing or reducing reliance upon the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). A non-profit organization named ICANN was established in 1998 as a global partnership to strengthen Internet security 

Handshake instead aims to use a decentralized application based on Proof-of-Work principles to improve the security of the internet.
