(01:03) bought some names uh said that i would take part and here i am awesome awesome yeah it’s great to have you here and uh it’s great it’s great um do you want to share the booklet maybe we can explain the uh process for some people that first time participating today yeah yeah there’s no voice for the others you guys will just do text uh chats and then um [Music] um maybe go to the next slide so yeah do you want to go through this or do you want me to go through this i think you can do it you can do it

(01:43) right so the auction information rules are pretty simple all emoji tlds are real and i dna with a valid work and funny code they’re all checked with punycoder.com submitted domain names are held in escrow by nimbus to participate is better you must rsvp beforehand on flamingo handshake or obviously in this case handycon um during the live auction bids are placed in the chat failure to honor the bid will result in you being banned from all future auctions the minimum percentage to be donated is 25 and 5 automatically goes to the flamingo

(02:21) handshake company i guess organization whatever you want to call it um the rest goes towards to support ukraine fundraiser yes well as always we we put these on on our on the website flamingo handshake um yeah familiar is not a company but it’s a group i mean it will be shared to uh the organizers of the auction uh and again we’re just working out the business model of this originally started purely uh you know um anyways we’re open to any kind of feedback but uh that the latest has been adding this uh minimum

(03:01) fee okay so maybe move and again um we don’t put in the slides but in the slides but we could process through name base uh as escrow or we can do otc um and some people actually are talking about ethereum to us and others we try our best to accommodate but of course we need to figure everything out and then for the transactions to the ukraine we’ll of course make that on chain um i don’t know if they accept hns that’d be pretty awesome but uh we’ll of course make that very clear and public about

(03:33) how it’s made and to the right to the right place and open anybody’s suggestions on if they have feedback okay keep going encrypted um so this is just a basic rundown of how we read the booklet uh you have the emoji and then we have the donation location uh it will show how much is actually being donated below that the percentage then on the right side you can see the official emoji name along with the pawnee code and verification status and so on so on thank you just go to the next one okay so let’s get started

(04:15) so this is uh the first one for today it’s um a hundred percent sort of to the uh well just to be clear to find we’re gonna take off five percent this time um so ninety five percent five but uh crown and the ukraine flag and so it’s a two emoji not a single emoji but it’s a double emoji but of course very relevant to this um to this auction and um to this uh fundraiser campaign and uh yeah more to to put with this encrypted or uh no i can’t really think of anything but yeah we’ll also see you know this

(04:54) will be on the on the page for the support ukraine uh campaign and uh so how many do we have today encrypt is a good question from that that soon i believe it’s 10 isn’t it uh yeah there’s 10 and then we’re gonna split this up into at least because we’re gonna have nick or angry mouse sharing in about 20 minutes so we’re going to do as many as we can before his talk and then we’re going to come back and do this second part and it’s also a warm-up for tomorrow as well with dot um s is tomorrow and some others

(05:28) um and there’s some people like name based about submission chosen so yeah we are working on improving the submission process uh but if it was the last minute like yesterday we we had processed these last week so um but uh maybe message anne if you can she’s our amazing uh coordinator on that but uh if you didn’t get an email it would if for any seller we have these in escrow already we’re holding these in in name base and we said we contacted sellers we do need to do a little bit better process of content those that

(06:03) were not uh accepted it’s just we get a little bit overwhelmed with uh submissions but um yeah we do need to um uh improve the uh communication process of those that are aren’t accepted but um if you didn’t get a contact or didn’t didn’t escrow your name and uh unfortunately didn’t make it this time but we’ll try our best do we uh erase kick kick this off encrypted yeah i think we should just get things started and get things going um so i guess we could have the starting bid is 300 coins anyone want to start off at

(06:36) 300 coins 300 hns token okay got 300 already 300 coming in anyone want to do like 400 500 400 400 thank you web 2 dev all right 500 from dope nice 690 from phillip 700 1k all right thank you everybody for your support do we want anyone want to go higher hundred maybe we’ll try to move up in like 100 increments minimum if possible i know there’s some snipers that try to wait for us to count down but yeah experience at the last auction made me look like a fool anyone want to do 1100 on this all right it’s getting a little quiet

(07:26) i’m gonna make this countdown right i think we can move this one fast all right in three three two one final one and so oh so bird make sure you dm uh ann uh and or maybe dmu if you can’t find her and maybe send a message in the group so that we could find you okay bird that’s anne so she’ll uh settle it with you at least get your contact information okay all right so the next one up is the ukraine flag red heart um and also another 100 percent to the to the fundraiser seller will not receive any proceeds so thank you seller

(08:15) actually which trump has shout i think i know the seller of this but uh i don’t know if we want to reveal the seller but thank you sellers especially those that gave a hundred percent it’s really really much appreciated in this one i like this one ukraine flag and red heart so it’s a double emoji but of course it’s it’s a very fitting one for today’s uh campaign what do you feel encrypted i think it’s awesome i think it just goes to show like it doesn’t matter what the situation is the handshake community

(08:50) will be there behind you right like we’re just here to support ukraine in whatever way we can and i think this emoji really shows that shows that the love handshake has for the people yeah so some people don’t know the booklet you can download a pdf of this uh on that page i just shared the chats we tried our best to make a pdf version you can download the same exact pdf we’re showing or or look at it on a web page okay so where do you want to start this one that encrypted um i said i think we could start it off

(29:15) are we ready to start this one off uh encrypted yeah i’m just okay thanks thanks for the background yeah i think he took it off the market uh for it to put into this auction so thanks uh for putting that in here is that correct link i think i got it i think okay yeah i think i got it um all right so so let’s say start this off at like 1000 maybe yeah i was thinking that too in that sense i think he was asking this russian language to be clear um okay um so let’s let’s what do you want to get this started

(30:02) um i i think yeah we’ll start off with a starting bit of 1000 anyone want to get this gun for 1000 one thousand hms it’s uh you know i think even somebody earlier saying about you know immutable names you know uh yeah obviously a good use case for handshake you know to uh have an immutable name uh especially in times like we’re in right now so that’s uh you could also use this to donate or give people web pages for free like some of the sessions were saying uh yesterday um to host some sites that they might need

(30:36) need that use case i think we can start a little bit lower encrypt and make it’s usually when it starts lower it can move up easily um let’s start at 500 again let’s see if anyone wants to come in at 500. 500 again 60 over half is going to the to the ukraine fund which we’ll share on chain proof of the payments okay i hope they’re also following the chats this does have reports so uh and then nick actually angry mouse the owner of his name will uh will speak uh after i’ll put in 500 i’ll bid 500 uh from me

(31:12) uh so put i’ll start i’ll chat anyone want to bring it up to one thousand mikes has brought it to 500. i guess you know i don’t know if it’s a good time in the world to say i’m i’m 25 russian but uh my grandmother’s from russia you know and again just to be clear you know i know this is a rock maybe a russian name you know but russian people russian government is not the same right a lot of times the russian people don’t know what’s even happening or they’re maybe brainwashed

(31:38) or they you know they don’t they don’t have any control right you know i’m in mainland china right now does that mean i’m bad or whatever if the government china does something bad right people or governments are are not the same so uh you know um i’ll throw it in the hat there yeah exactly there’s lots you know that’s hopefully my handshake can help fix right is allowing the truth to come out um okay so someone would come into 600 or anyone want to bring new bids in there is a reserve on this

(32:10) one too so um okay um maybe we can continue to see if there’s some bids after angry mouse’s talk he can maybe even explain his name a bit more okay awesome you want me just to go ahead to the next one then oh i think this will be the last because i think he is ready for his sessions we’ll go to speaker session after this and then come back after his talk to part two of this auction so if there’s no no biz now i think we’ll just let people think about it and then we can start with this one after the uh

(32:44) talk and how many more names you want to scroll ahead encrypted while uh sure um we got let’s just show the names so people can see what’s got handy chat that will be after which is and then um we have the ukraine currency symbol yeah this is uh and i think that might be the last one is there another i believe uh i believe that’s it yeah yeah so there’ll be well we’ll give another chance on this russian word for webpage and then the handychat and then the uh the currency symbol for the um ukrainian money so it’ll be three more

(33:20) after the talk and uh okay so i hope everybody is familiar with the process this will be the process also for tomorrow um and then settlement can go through name base or uh or otc meaning you just could send it to our wallet and we’ll transfer it to you um that way either way of course um the second way is you know uh another way but we can talk about that with the sellers we appreciate all of your um participation we hope you enjoy this even if you didn’t make a bid we hope you enjoy this process we try to

(33:55) keep it fun and are always open to your feedback and suggestions and we are trying to upgrade the system we did make account.flamingohandshake.com since the last one so that way you’ll get email notifications i know that’s been a big like even in this chat name based asked if you got it accepted or not that will give you some emails uh automatically from a backend system so that’s the upgrade we made in the last couple weeks so um you can sign up for free and submit names there and maybe we can even keep

(34:28) it going for uh future names auctions if it’s not in this one we could keep it in that system so we could notify you on future ones so um i think we can end this session and then we will come back for the next one right i’m talking to our team but uh i think i think yeah i think we can move we’ll move to the next session which will be angry mouse or nick’s talk which i’m really excited about and then we’ll come back to finish these three names okay thank you everybody all right thank you take care
