In recent days, I have seen a lot of advertisements for the acquisition of GitHub account in the circle of friends and microblog
Acquired GitHub account registered before 2019, with more than 16 fans and private key reserved. No special purpose, just to beautify your resume. 500 yuan / piece.
As technologists, we should refuse middlemen to make a profit.
In fact, this is a welfare activity organized by handshake
The Handshake Organization raised money from top Silicon Valley investors including A16Z and Sequoia. They donated $10.2mm to GNU, Mozilla, and other internet foundations.
Now they’re giving away ~4662 Handshake coins to qualifying developers on GitHub.
After five minutes of operation, we can get a few bitcoins, worth about 5000 RMB. The official said it would take three to five minutes, and the actual operation might take more than half an hour. The official website has a very detailed tutorial:
- Registered GitHub account (unlimited time)
- Have at least 15 fans by February 4, 2019
- The private key added before February 4, 2019 is usually in the
- There’s a handshake wallet address.
If you don’t meet the first three, you can close this page.
If you are satisfied, the next step is to install Node.js 。 I will not introduce this.
Registered account number
Enter the official website https://www.namebase.io Register an account, the official website has Chinese version.
As shown in the figure, the wallet address can be generated.
After the preparation of the front work, we enter the steps of formal collection
1. Download HS airdrop
$ git clone https://github.com/handshake-org/hs-airdrop.git
This tool is open source and developed by the handshake team. Because your private key will be used later, you can read the source code of the tool if you are not sure.
2. Installation dependency
$ cd hs-airdrop && npm install
$ cd hs-airdrop && yarn
3. Check your private key
$ ls ~/.ssh
In general, the private key is
~/.ssh/id_rsaIf you don’t, remember the location of the private key.
Find the address you generated above
./bin/hs-airdrop <path to key> <address> <fee>
For example, my order is
./bin/hs-airdrop ~/.ssh/id_rsa hs1qmca2049atcnx5u307xd0etyfclrt4dkr5ejn3q 0.01
The first parameter is the private key address.
The second parameter is the wallet address.
The third parameter 0.01 is the handling charge. The default value is 0.1, which is recommended to be changed to 0.01.
Now no less than ~ 4662 HNS (handshake coins) are in hand.
The official three to five minutes is over.
But it’s not over, because this is HNS currency, we need to change it into RMB.
This requires two steps and N preconditions.
Step 1: HNS to BTC
Precondition, authentication required.
- Open the official website https://www.namebase.io/kyc/b…
- It doesn’t matter whether you fill in your name, Chinese characters or Pinyin. You will be asked if you choose no for the United States.
- Upload documents: passport or ID card. Generally, it’s an ID card. Choose identity card.
After passing the authentication, open the address https://www.namebase.io/sell Change your air currency into bitcoin.
Step 2: exchange bitcoin for RMB
Find a domestic bitcoin trading market can complete this operation.
