Protocol Labs network Code of Conduct

The Protocol Labs network is a collection of open source R&D labs working together to build the next generation of the internet. The network is strong because its members share a set of common values such as integrity, respect, and accountability. The strength of this community hinges upon the contributions and trustworthiness of its members, and we look to each of you to continually support and build up the network.
