Working together to support open and inclusive blockchain networks.
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 open and inclusive blockchain networks. 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 public to support and be a part of open and inclusive blockchain networks. We believe public support is important for open and inclusive networks so that they can forever do what they were designed to do – provide undiscriminating access and benefit to all people.

It kind of depends on you. We have stealth members that prefer to remain anonymous and we have members that choose to be very active in the Public Node community. We welcome both approaches and everything in between.
