My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
I have been in the defi/crypto space for nearly 6 years now and nothing has invigorated me more than being a part of these movements which are revolutionizing the world.
I believe that ENS has an opportunity to be one of those rare protocols which can truly make a difference for ALL participants and NON participants in the crypto space. My main goals will be to continue growing our DAO Treasury AND rewarding $ENS token holders because they are the backbone which will continue to drive innovation and governance.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 11
Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Decentralization means we cannot do anything to infringe on names. This comes with the good and the bad actors which we will see.
Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Fees exist to fund our DAO.
Enacting real decentralization means we must face certain truths. The truth is that we are an organism which needs money to survive. I understand our desires to take the moral high ground but beating around the bush in this regard is not going to make us sustainable. With a Large DAO treasury we attract better talent, give more reasons to hold $ENS (keeping DAO net worth higher), and can enact the most amount of change in the least amount of time.
Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Income funds… (ranked highest priority to lowest):
-ENS DAO Treasury
-$ENS Governance Participants
Similar to what I said above, income and fees are used to grow our treasury, incentivize DAO participation, AND give back to $ENS holders and supporters.
Now that we have a token, we have a duty to our users/holders to make them a part of this DAO as much as possible. We can achieve all our goals of doing public good AND reward our community. I am not sure why there is aversion towards sharing revenue with our token holders unless it is due to fears of government regulation.
A real DAO involves and incentivizes all users/participants in all ways. Please do not take a route where this does not occur.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
