ENS name: jameshallam.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I’ve spend a significant amount of time in the discord, learning and taking on information. I have thirst for knowledge and really believe in the ENS mission for creating a worldwide, recognised brand in consumer operability. I have also spoken to mainly all of your employees since being in the discord, all of whom interact and are open with the community. This is something I really want to be a part of.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree - Permissionless activity and interoperability should be encouraged. Web 3 is driven on the rights and actions of ownership, and I believe ENS domains have created a brand around allowing this to happen.
Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree - From a branding perspective, ENS allows users to utilise their own name and / or username to enable growth in the industry. I also believe that an initial cost could ultimately result in incentivising users to NFT their name, which cause a knock-on effect and profiteering. ENS can therefore earn royalties from this.
Whilst ENS could potentially survive on the brand it creates alone, this allows greater top level margins to focus on internal projects. I have mixed views on the pricing structure for smaller words and this could be revisited.
Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree - I feel this links in the previous point well. Treasury funds which can be distributed and controlled by the ENS and DAO will result in greater buy in and development.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree - This is my strongest viewpoint. It’s already clear to see how well ENS has branded itself in the community, through web 2 social handle changes to discord usernames.
