So…I don’t get the emoji craze with Handshake domains

As I’m learning more and more about Handshake domains and getting to connect more with the community I’ve come across an interesting investment thesis, that I’ll be honest, makes no sense to me. You can probably guess by the title of this post – that thesis is that in a world where Handshake takes off and the general public knows and loves Handshake domains, emoji domains will be popular.

So…I don’t get it. First things first, I’m not saying this couldn’t happen, sure it could, just about anything can happen when it comes to how the Internet will grow and develop over time. That being said, I just don’t think people are going to be navigating to something.🐶 if they’re looking for things related to dogs or something.🍷 if wine is more up their alley. Or something .🐶🍷 if taking their dog wine tasting…okay – you get the point.

Currently there’s an interesting thread about this on Namer News where people are voting on the best emoji Handshake domain.

Best Handshake Emoji Domain

Note, this was just posted four hours ago so it might take some time for everyone to share their names, but like I said above, I don’t get it. I can understand why Handshake domains like c/ are popular, I also think handshake names like /web might also have some legs.

But the emojis don’t make any sense to me, but maybe I’m missing something that other people see. What do you think?
