EPIC news! Thanks for sharing!

Taking a screenshot and keeping a text backup here as there has been some issues with Wikipedia removing things in the past.
Handshake
Handshake is a decentralized implementation of a DNS root zone using blockchain and cryptocurrency technology to create a peer-to-peer alternative to the 13 root name servers managed by ICANN. Unlike other attempts, Handshake doesn't aim to replace the existing Domain Name System, rather it seeks to supplement and enhance it by allowing anyone to bid, register, and manage their own TLDs without an intermediate registrar or delegating authority. Since the root zone file records are not centrally managed, and instead are stored on a public blockchain, owners of Handshake TLDs can add or change top-level resource records to delegate authoritative name servers and setup DNSSEC zone signing directly.[3][4]

Existing TLDs are reserved in the Handshake blockchain such that resolving traditional domain names (i.e. zones under .com, .org, .net, etc.) through a Handshake node or name server are directed back to ICANN's root servers. In addition, the top 100,000 most popular domains are reserved as Handshake TLDs which can be redeemed by the original domain owner.[4]

Some privacy and security oriented network service providers have integrated support for Handshake domains. Private Internet Access, a VPN service provider, and NextDNS, a public recursive name server that implements DNS over HTTPS (DoH) encryption in Firefox browsers, both provide users with the option to resolve DNS queries using Handshake.[5][6][7]
