Inscribed Handle names are forever
An Inscribed Handle (ih) is a name that has been forever etched into the Bitcoin Blockchain. Examples of handles are @zoe, @42, @bob, @bmw etc.
identity that you own
current handles on web2 companies are owned by the companies themselves. They choose what you can and can’t do with your handle. Inscribed Handles however belong to you completely and you can do with them as you wish.
first domains, now handles
The ordinals protocol has made so many amazing things now possible on Bitcoin. A great new innovation that recently took place is .sats domain. People started registering domain names on Bitcoin and it’s really starting to take off.
Now new domain extensions have started to be created and this has left people wondering how the increased supply of domains could affect things. A good thing about handles is they can’t necessarily be extended like domains can so they are more scarce.
Handles will also be used as the basis for a new communication and social media system on Bitcoin.
