    > From the point of Handshake authors, Zooko system uses blockchain resources, but does not help with main mission (make Handshake team super rich by taking over existing DNS system).

    Actually, I gave the idea to publius for this as he had mentioned. I'm myself excited by the no-censor DNS root system, but I'm passionate about the ownership of your own 'namespace' generically much more so than the DNS. That's why I made a pull request [1] to Bob Extension for example which later enabled publius (in his own words) to make applause [2].

    I did also see what happened between publius and the admins of that discord, which is just another Handshake discord as there is no official Handshake discord, and I don't agree with what happened either to be fair. Political discussions can occur in much more mature ways on both ends of the spectrum.
