Cast Handles

Cast's federate hub uses Farcaster IDs and .cast Wield NFTs on Optimism and Ethereum - we needed a way to filter out bad actors and network spam, requiring our users to pay at least 39 cents a year on Optimism, or gas fees on Ethereum.

Farcaster IDs also function directly on Cast, a perfect usecase for users saving their storage or have expired storage, or during widescale Farcaster network outages.

Builders are free to fork Cast and remove this requirement or subsitute with their own handle system.
