  1. Jack says:

    I wanted to buy a few handshake tld’s on Namebase but it’s only possible for US persons, unless you can go through the horror of applying for a crypto account elsewhere to transfer this or that cryptocurrency for HNS…

    1. Steve Webb says:

      Hi Jack,

      I’m currently in the US so I’m not 100% sure what steps are necessary outside of the US, but I believe you can purchase HNS with BTC using Namebase Exchange.

  2. I was told you cannot pay or buy HNS with $us or any other currency .

    1. Steve Webb says:

      Hi Frank,

      At the moment, you need to use BTC to purchase HNS; however, they’re working to add support for USD.
