My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I’ve wished for a competitor to our arcane DNS and Domain-system for nearly two decades of using the internet. When ENS came along it was more than I could ever hope for. I’m interested in lending a hand to its governance and I hope my combination of aspie, geek and horror fiction-loving personality traits helps me contribute something of value :slight_smile:

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: The same reasons anyone wants political power, to exploit that power for personal gain (I bet no one else is honest enough to willingly admit that publicly). That, and to also advocate/encourage everyone to take personal responsibility, self-delegate and engage critically and skeptically in democracy in all it’s beautiful forms and flavors, not just on this forum.

  • Former College professor, teaching video game development
  • Fluent with C++, Python, PHP, Javascript & Solidity
  • Currently working on multiple FOSS products/public goods in those languages for building on web3 technology, focused on education and lowering the barrier of entry into the blockchain space
  • I pride myself in a security first development approach
  • Began my self-educated journey into the metaverse back in 2018 as an independent developer but that got put on hiatus for a few years until I was finally able to get on-chain at the beginning of the 2021 bull run (I missed out on a lot, I know but that’s life sometimes)
  • check out my personal developer website
  • or take a look at my open source github repositories (links available on dev site)

Thanks for your time and I hope you consider me as your delegate or honestly, don’t. Please make whichever decision you feel accurately represents your best interests and yours alone because in a democracy you are always your best advocate!

ENS name: abolaji.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I have been looking for a community/platform to learn new technology and at the same time contribute my best quota to the development of such community/platform. I thereby found ENS DAO as a community/platform that has this trait and this get me hungry to be a delegate.

Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Agree

I agree that name ownership shall not be infringed in order not to limit the control of name ownership account the full security benefits of being blockchain-native.

Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Agree

This will surely prevent the namespace to become overwhelm with speculative registered names since it come with registration fees.

Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Agree

This will ensure long-term viability of ENS and continuity of ENS development

ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Agree

My web3 qualifications / skills:

I have basic knowledge of solidity, infura and willing to further more.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I’m an incredibly motivated and optimistic user of the web3 space, and where it will take us in the coming years. I’ve been an involved member of the Ethereum community for a few years, and my background in web development is what first sparked my interests in ENS earlier this year. I also have a background in marketing and advertising and understand the use that social media plays into both.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agreed.
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agreed, especially as a security mechanism on the network. It acts as a throttle.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agreed. Funding is incredibly important for startup projects and others that intend to make a difference within the space. Ensuring the funds are dispersed to goodwill parties should be a top priority.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agreed.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I’ve been a web (primarily JavaScript, some .NET) developer for a few years now, previously studying Computer Science. More recently, I’ve been working with Solidity and web3.js to create hobby blockchain applications, both web3 sites and smart contracts. It’s been an incredibly interesting and enlightening journey through learning web3, and I’m always looking for ways to learn more about the space. My next projects will be hosting a personal site on IPFS through ENS.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: Since joining ENS last year, I have contributed to educating the crypto community on the importance of having a naming system on the Ethereum blockchain. In my humble opinion, ENS has the potential of being the decentralised identity protocol of the metaverse. As someone who has been in the crypto since 2017, I strongly believe i can help with the development and direction of ENS.

My reason for wanting to be a delegate:
I am a web3 designer and NFT creator. I have toyed with etherum nodes, implemented it on mainnet, and been mining it since I can remember. I interact with smart contracts daily. More so I am a ERC 721 creator with several projects under my belt. I believe the next iteration of etherum ETH 2.0 is immensely needed as gas fees are skyrocketing not to mention not eco friendly. I think other blockchains such as MATIC, ALGO, XTZ all with L2 scalability are coming up as strong alternatives to ETH right now. As we in the NFT field see daily, minters complain about the astronomical gas fees, creators too, as listing prices are coherent with mint prices. Its my believe that I share your conundrums, and most empathetic to the plight of gas fees. Keeping our beloved blockchain at the forefront of innovation is what pushes me to ENS. I can voice your concerns, carry out your directives you wish to have ENS run, succinctly state your objectives on funds allotment, and approval of board elections. I can be reached 24/7 via twitter @lazytruckernft or discord @lazytrucker.eth if you ever need to voice your concerns or have questions about ENS governance. Thank you for your time and consideration.

My web3 qualifications / skills: I am currently learning from the ground up about blockchain technology and I am highly motivated to continue the journey to becoming an expert on the ENS DAO as well. I have started investing in cryptocurrencies and making informed trade decisions based on White Paper documents as well as market news. I have proactively begun absorbing as much information about Web3 alongside learning about NFT’s and the Metaverse. I may not have the same level of hands on experience of what it takes to be qualified, however, I do have the motivation, mental strength, positive outlook and thick skin required to manage such an integral role in Web3.

Hello everyone.

I am daylon.eth and I hope to represent your interests as an ENS DAO delegate.

I am involved in Web 3 because I am both a “technology maximalist” and a firm believer in self sovereignty of identity and self-determination of one’s destiny. I passionately believe that open-source software and global collaboration can solve any human problem.

PLATFORM
As a delegate, the most important concepts I will work and vote to defend are:

1. ENS as the flagbearer of self-sovereignty of identity as a public good.

1+. This is a stance I am not willing to compromise on. I will never agree to let ENS be bought by private interests, and I will do everything in my power to prevent the formation of a plutocracy or hostile takeover.

2. Cryptography as a force to preserve privacy and counteract authoritarianism.

2+. Privacy is a both a human right and an absolute necessity. In the current web paradigm, you and your data are the product, and the status quo is having little or no privacy, as every single piece of data about you is collected and compiled to sell your habits and interests as a model to the highest bidder.

Privacy is the antithesis of authoritarianism. Encryption can enable a critical counterbalance by protecting freedom of speech, freedom of association, and freedom of assembly.

This is an ethos exhibited strongly by the “cypherpunk” movement that inspired the creation of Bitcoin and the first ever global solution for trustless money. Cryptocurrency has provided the most mainstream use case to date for everyone to benefit from asymmetric cryptography and to enable self-ownership and portability of one’s data.

This is only the first step towards privacy in the digital age.

3. DAOs as a catalyst for a postnational world.

3+. This is more of a guiding principal, greatly strengthened in response to the failures of nation states to equitably and effectively counteract the COVID-19 pandemic. Realistically in today’s world, a handful of tech companies now hold more power over individual liberties than many state governments. When was the last time you contacted distant family or community, and could you do it without them? If not, you see the problem.

I believe both state governments and tech monoliths are obsolete and that we have the opportunity to create credibly neutral, decentralized, and trustless alternative systems to replace them.

The first example of this was to replace banks with DeFi protocols, and I believe this is only the beginning. ENS presents an opportunity for replacing long held identity verification infrastructure - be it Facebook, Google, or your country’s passport agency.

I believe DAOs can do a better job than most state departments at just about everything, and I believe we should work towards achieving this for a more free and open world.

RELEVANT KNOWLEDGE
I am well versed in, intrinsically interested in, experienced in, or otherwise speak the language of all of the following areas of the crypto/web 3 space

  • Technological
    – Cryptography, Computer Science, Mathematics, Data Analysis
    – Ethereum GPU miner for almost a year. I made a thread about that if you want to know more.
  • Game Theoretical
  • Financial
    – former stock trader until Robinhood literally robbed me. See Robinhood’s GME/AMC stock market manipulation
  • Historical
    – I have followed Bitcoin since 2011, held some since 2014.
    – Argued for and experienced the world slowly coming around to accepting money/assets as something truly digital, scarce, and decentralized.

I like to think of myself as a polymath, and I have spent years going down Wikipedia rabbit holes chasing anything and everything that interests me. Throughout my teenage years and into today, if I don’t know something, I will look it up immediately and research it until I understand it.

In my opinion, knowledge is the greatest gift the internet has to offer, and I’ve never understood those that choose not to utilize it. The opposite of curiosity is curation. If there is one thing I am grateful for about myself, it is my natural curiosity.

After all, that’s what lead me to where I am now, posting this.

Other various information

I am a United States Air Force veteran, serving as a Civil Engineer from 2013-2017.

I have degrees in Electrical and Mechanical Technology and Korean Studies, and I am currently working towards a degree in Information Technology Systems Security (cybersecurity) while also taking Electrical Engineering and programming classes outside of my degree program. I plan to earn my Bachelors degree double majoring in Computer Science and Physics. After that I plan to study Biology and achieve a doctorate degree.

Fun fact - my original inspiration for registering daylon.eth for 10 years was to set a deadline for accomplishing all of those lofty goals by 2031.

I lived in Seoul, Korea for a little over 4 years and I would still be there if it weren’t for the pandemic. From the time I separated from the AF in 2017 until April 2020 I was travelling and exploring the far East and living as a “digital nomad.” I spent a few months living in Brisbane, Australia on a Work and Holiday visa, however I left to meet my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day in 2020 and I wasn’t able to return back to Australia because it had closed it’s borders due to COVID-19.

I consider myself a digital native, as I grew up using computers since age 4 (starting with MS-DOS) and later alongside the internet since AOL 3.0.

I have followed and held bitcoin since 2014 and been following the development of the crypto space closely since then.

I currently hold various amounts of ~50 different tokens, and although I used to consider myself a “trader,” since 2021 I have considered myself a “value investor.” I support the projects that I find compelling and that I believe can change the world for the better.

I value liberty above all else and consider myself a “dreamer” and an artist. I will happily discuss philosophy with you all day.

If you feel that your ethos aligns with mine but you are unable or uninterested in being involved with ENS directly, please consider choosing me to represent you.

Thank you.
