Stellar nodes funded by community
Working together to support the open and inclusive Stellar network.
About Public Node
Public Node is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit open-membership organization that supports and brings a trusted and meaningful public voice to the open and inclusive Stellar network. Public Node accomplishes this through public education, infrastructure, awareness, advocacy, and other areas of engagement. Your membership helps provide the funding necessary to deliver on our important mission.
Our mission is to provide an efficient way for the general public to support and be a part of open and inclusive blockchain networks. We believe public support is important for open and inclusive networks, like the Stellar network and the internet itself, so that they can forever do what they were designed to do – provide undiscriminating access and benefit to all people.
The Future Power of the Stellar Network
In the future, we envision a Stellar network that is powered by many diverse entities. With Public Node, individuals and small businesses can be a part of that diversity and provide additional support to an open network that benefits all people.
