ENS DAO Delegate Applications

ENS name: daqhris.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
Since I am an African refugee living in Europe as an undocumented immigrant, the concept of cryptography bringing financial freedom to anyone on the Internet through Web3 projects greatly appeals to me.
As a delegate, I will contribute to ENS Domains by bringing forward ideas from real-life experiences of not being able to use traditional banking solutions and centralized crypto exchanges.
Without innovation in decentralized finance, my life would be unstoppably crushed by discriminatory policies from powerful governments and large institutions.
Let’s facilitate access, usability and adoption of this technology by all humans with a computing device connected to the world wide web!

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Domains Constitution:

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree)
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree)
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree)
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree)

My web3 qualifications / skills:
Currently building and running a visual arts gallery.
Founding and managing a crypto growth fund.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree. Though the distribution of names may not be fully fair (e.g. Squatters do exist), the harm done by infringing on ownership rights would far outweigh the benefits. The ability for ENS users to trust that their ownership of domain names is an absolute right, is invaluable.

  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree - I think the primary barrier to ens domain registration is Ethereum transaction costs. Including small fees should be no problem for the majority of domains, and larger fees absolutely make sense for in demand and short domain names, as high net worth individuals can afford these.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree. Of course Income should be used to fund ENS. That just makes sense. Funding public goods is also important, as ENS is an infrastructure project, and generally depends on other public infrastructure to thrive and succeed.

  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree - Ask for forgiveness, not permission, enable other Top Level Domains and grant ownership to those TLD owners on request. This is excellent for growth, and I don’t see that there is much in the way of legitimate grievances from other DNS holders

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am an experienced Ethereum Developer, having started in 2016, and manage a web3 development community since 2017,called Block Devs United (https://bdu.dev). I have programmed hundreds of dApps, and am experienced with integrating ENS into dApps. I rarely act alone, but with the backing of our community of Blockchain developers, and rely heavily on their skills wherever mine are lacking. I have also participated in a dozen blockchain hackathons or so, and won lots of prizes!

ENS name:
emanuelperez.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
I’m here to help others onboard to the world of web3 and ENS by walking them through on the use cases that crypto has available for everyone. This is my passion and I’ll do whatever it takes to make understanding the current environment easier for those that are new. My goal is to increase the amount of exposure while decreasing the barriers of entry into web3 for those who are curious, especially in minority communities.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am great at breaking down complex concepts in web3/crypto lingo into understandable terms to anyone I’m talking to. As an active user in this space that includes NFTs, DeFi and DAOs, and as a former PC technician, I’m able to relay empathy to those who don’t understand and am patient to educating those who are excited about taking their first few steps into crypto.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

  • I believe ENS has huge potential to expand the definition of “online” identity, enabling more transparency, interoperability, and ultimately creating a system to unify all of the disparate profiles a user has been required to create to interact with different properties/entities under web2. I want to be actively involved in the development and future of ENS, and in establishing it as a foundational pillar of web3.

My view on each section of the ENS Constitution:

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
    Comment:
    This is key: While there may be instances where a users wants the ability to secure a domain name that is owned by another user (eg; squatting), creating a standard for ENS governance to affect name ownership (for any reason) should be avoided to the fullest extent possible.

  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
    Comment:
    We need further clarification on “funds that are not reasonably required” - what do we view as “reasonably required” to ensure the long-term viability of ENS and its continued development/improvement? This is a question that will come up further down the line.

  • ENS integrates with global namespace: Agree
    Comment:
    This is generally a good idea, as we want to avoid squatters maliciously holding an established company’s DNS name in the ENS ecosystem - but similarly, guardrails here would be helpful. For example, should a newly-incorporated company with a registered DNS be allowed to request an ENS of the same name be revoked from its original holder/creator?

My web3 qualifications / skills:

  • I’ve spent the last several months diving into web3 and the applications of blockchain. I have 7+ years of experience in product/marketing in the startup and ad-tech worlds, and believe my experience in the advertising world of web2 gives me unique perspective on how projects like ENS can break the biggest limitations of web2.

Been in the Web2 space for many moons. Spent the entire year this year diving deep into web3 and smartcontracts. Built a small army of developers on discord (blockhead devs) and have been pushing the learning and building of blockchain things. Deep in the discords (all of them it seems like) and actively working to help push the boundaries of what the blockchain and web3 will do for our society and our planet.

ENS Name: epistetech.eth

Becoming a delegate is a meaningful role to take on. I see delegation as a necessary component of democratization. Contributing to this DAO through delegating is something that needs to be done given the mission of ENS. The mission of ENS is about proof of identity and digital freedom. Lets cooperate to build the metaverse!

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree

I am an environmental tokenomist who was saved by web3 and started developing smart contracts that are built to detect Pigou and Coase externalities through NFTs and. I am currently working on a DAO for a slow-fashion initiative. In my free time I try to find ways to optimize smart contracts platforms by introducing quantum state consensus. I believe we need to anticipate emerging technology together so we can integrate early to thrive as a community.

ENS name: juliawu.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
Having purchased and used tons of off-chain domain names, I appreciate the importance of a well-governed, accessible and inclusive naming system. As web3 grows, I believe that ENS will continue to play a critical role in the naming/referencing of wallets, apps and websites. I would like to help shape the future of this important protocol.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I love the intersection of computer science and economics (my fields of study at Brown University).
I taught myself Solidity while wrapping up college in 2017, and have since built over 10 crypto projects while working full-time as an engineer at companies like Apple, won 3 defi hackathons and received $25k in prizes/funding for my side projects. Built my first NFT project in 2018 which got funded by Pioneer.app.
I also translated parts of the Ethereum whitepaper to Portuguese (2017) and have authored many crypto/fintech articles featured on the homepage of publications like HackerNoon, a tech blog with over 4M+ monthly readers.

ENS name: monaelisa.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I am excited about the opportunities ENS opens up to simplifying user experience in the space and enhance trust, especially with respect to DeFi. As the DeFi sphere expands and matures we’re seeing that the degree of “trust” required between participants varies depending on which protocols you’re using. ENS offers a great way to bridge that trust and build reputation to access the full spectrum of opportunities available.

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree
  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree

My web3 qualifications / skills: I have been contributing towards web3/ DeFi since 2016. I founded the Melon protocol in 2016 which later became known as Enzyme. Enzyme was the first DeFi protocol to decentralise its governance in February 2019 and move towards a DAO/Council model. After that, I created Avantgarde Finance which is building a service layer for DeFi. We are very interested in building features around ENS for Enzyme to simplify DeFi access such a vault sub-domains and other.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I’ve been an exceptionally active member in DAO governance for a while now. To date I’ve cast over 140 votes for various governance. I’ve been using ENS since 2017, and guide projects for which I consult to integrate it into their platforms. I look forward to participating in governance through ENS, and intend to remain up-to-date on ENS issues, the project’s growth, and the politics that may arise in this space.
