ENS name: jeremycs.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I believe ENS domains will serve as the passport to web3 and will be the first, and most important, crypto asset that a significant portion of the mainstream own: I believe it will be the most decentralized digital asset there is, with every person on the globe having an ENS home.
It will serve as the identity layer, the underlying digital home, and the gateway for web3. It will also serve as the de facto bridge between web2 and web3. We must protect the development of this integral layer of the crypto economy to ensure that it reaches this vision of true decentralization, full interoperability, and ungamable digital identity.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 1
Name ownership shall not be infringed : Agree
Name ownership is the base layer of web3; and true ownership necessitates interoperability and portability across the entire crypto universe.
Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism : Agree
Fees are a critical mechanism to discourage ENS hoarding, squatting, and speculating. Ownership should ideally tied to an active end user who derives real utility from ENS, rather than an opportunistic actor with purely financial incentives.
Income funds ENS and other public goods : Agree
ENS will be one of many crypto-native public goods, and it is integral to the health of the broader web3 ecosystem that we strategically support initiatives that contribute to the future of the web.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace : Agree
ENS will not only be the underlying base layer for web3, but will also serve as the bridge to web2 and the non-blockchain internet. Interoperability should be at the core of ENS and its development.
My web3 qualifications / skills:
I’m the co-treasurer of the Stanford Blockchain Club where we are delegates representing significant governance power for protocols that have helped shape web3 as we know it, including Uniswap and Compound. A core part of our mission is to educate the community about web3 and accelerate the next generation of adoption.
I have a background in economics (Oxford) and business (as a founder & Stanford MBA), with an extensive focus on incentive structures, game theory, and platform design.
