I could only find Unifiedroot on Google...

As far as I can see OpenNIC is not really compatible with them. For
example, on
they say "The cost to register a premium, high-value, TLD or IDN
during the Founders Program is 50,000 EUR" and also "Unifiedroot
reserves the right to accept or reject any applicant at their sole
discretion". This sounds more like a commercial root which is just as
bad as ICANN.

Most of the centralised roots apart from OpenNIC appear to be dead or
attempting to mislead people into paying large amounts for TLDs
without informing them that it is an alternative system. In my opinion
it is best to keep OpenNIC's honest and democratic system separate
from some of the other alt roots.
