macOS Install Guide
The Handshake software suite consists of a full node (
hsd) and a light client (
hnsd). The full node allows users to register, update, and transfer names, resolve names, and make blockchain payments. The light client (SPV node) allows users to resolve names without the computing resource requirements of running a full node.
