GitHub accounts must be active in valuable FOSS projects. Processed on a weekly basis. 2. freenode accounts must be more than six months old. These are prioritized over others due to high signal. 3.

Fundraising Goal:
Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol compatible with DNS where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities. Its purpose is not to replace the DNS protocol, but to replace the root zone file and the root servers with a public commons. The Handshake protocol maintains the root zone file in a decentralized manner, making the root zone uncensorable, permissionless, and free of gatekeepers.
