What is the relationship of ENS and HNS?
We see .eth / ENS as a DAO for the .eth web3 domain system with a very active and supportive ecosystem - especially with the endorsement for Vitalik.
HNS always respected and reserved .eth for ENS since Mainnet in March 2020, and it was claimed in May 2020 by ENS.
ENS is a .eth + web2 TLD importer tool.
HNS is a “Soft fork” of the internet with TLDs that have not been issued by the
Replying to Dr3a About TLD System for web3
There's a difference between Web2 having hundreds of TLDs and Web3 having hundreds of TLDs.
In Web2 ICANN is the organization that regulates TLDs.
In Web3 there is no organization that regulates TLDs. ANYONE can create ANY TLD and sell them.
