ENS name: bigpoppacode.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
I would like to be a delegate because I believe that ENS is a necessary public utility that must belong to the community at large. The over centralization of a protocol would be catastrophic especially to traditionally underserved communities like the black community. My desire is to use my near 20 years of experience as a self taught developer and user of web technologies to help give my voice when I can. I also believe that ENS will create a better authentication system for the web and the metaverse and all the work I do as an engineer is geared toward this use case.
- Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
ENS governance must not enact a change increasing or reducing the extension costs of a list of existing ENS names, as this would unfairly benefit or penalize a handpicked group.
- Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree
ENS governance may increase the price of name registrations in order to address excessive speculative registrations induced by a price that is set too low, or because the current price is insufficient to fund ongoing ENS operations at a reasonable level.
- Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
ENS governance may offer grant funding for a public good unrelated to ENS or Ethereum, so long as doing so does not affect the long-term viability of ENS.
- ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
ENS governance should grant control of a top-level domain to its owner in the DNS system on request.
My web3 qualifications / skills:
Hi , My qualifications are as follows, I am a self taught developer who has been using the web as a developer since I made Myspace/Xanga pages for friends in high school going back to 2003.
I am currently the Head of Engineering for a venture backed startup with Investment from Mac Ventures, BackStage Capital and Twitter.
My company seeks to use ENS a single sign in solution and a more decentralized authentication system, and create alternative ways to allow people to communicate peer to peer & creator to audience in a new way. We are also one of the few Black Owned Businesses in this space, and I’m dedicated to change that in the future. I also have taught nearly 300 students how to be Web Developers, Software Engineers, and Product Managers.
