During one of the ongoing discussions, in discord of ENS, it came to my attention that more and more people are joining the ENS ecosystem after October 31st 2021.
However, it is still the case that the gas fees for most people living in the developing world is high enough for them to not risk it. For instance, here’s some case scenario I picked up for India, which is inevitably the next market for anything internet and other domains:
- Average monthly salary in India is 31k INR approx.
- Average median salary is around 29k.
- Average range is around 8k-114k per month.
Based on my understanding, even people with well regulated jobs will have to spend 2 months worth of their salary (not investments) to buy 1 ENS domain if they are lucky and have courage to do so.
In short, like most ETH projects, this too shall be the thing for rich or high risk takers.
I, hereby, want to propose the announcement of a new airdrop based on a new snapshot somewhere in 2022. This reward incentive might make people take the risk in assurance that they will at least get their hard earned money back in some portion once they have invested in the ENS ecosystem in its initial 5-8 years.
This would require ENS to announce it on their twitter profile, and then others in the ecosystem to spread the word to more people. Then a snapshot needs to be created on a new date as announced. This could be touted as the last Airdrop opportunity for the ENS ecosystem.
