The Domain Industry 101 for Crypto Investors w/ Mike Carson of Park.io (Ep. 0081‪)‬ Flippening - For Crypto Investors

    • Investing

Welcome to this cryptocurrency podcast with Mike Carson, founder of Park.io, which lets users backorder expiring domain names, and Gateway.io, which facilitates the sale of second-level domains off of Handshake top-level domains or TLDs. Handshake (HNS) is a blockchain-based protocol that enables anyone to own a TLD. As Mike explains, it "opens the floodgates to the TLD space."

The conversation is split into 3 chapters:


The domain name industry
Business opportunities for owners of Handshake TLDs
TLD security, Gateway.io & Mike's hopes for the future of the space

It also covers:


Mike’s journey from working in tech support to launching WizeHive
ICANN’s role in managing the TLD system
How the current system stifles innovation
The story behind .io
How top-level domains are like neighborhoods
