ENS DAO Delegate Applications

ENS name: wavecapital.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I grew up with web2, and recognize the society-changing impact it had on our world and identity. I apply this to web3, and want to be a part of this next evolution of the web, the decentralized web.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree)**
  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Mixed on this - I would like to explore other affordable avenues around the ENS rental model. I recognize the necessity for some form of revenue stream to support ENS architecture and improvement, but would like to revisit the annual fee to better understand if we are pricing this well.)**
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree)**
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Comment - I think there is still work to be done to better integrate ENS with other aspects of web3, but that’s what the DAO will be for right? :slight_smile: )

My web3 qualifications / skills: I’m a jack of all trades, with experience in finance, banking, corporate development, and programming (Python scripting, SQL, Solidity). I have a knack for applying knowledge from various other areas of expertise and finding innovative ways to solve things using different angles.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree: As stated in proposed constitution, the importance of a level playing field and emphasis of this I feel is core to future of web3. Equal opportunity starts with transparency of rates and consistency regardless of party involved.

  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree: There must be some friction to registering, and I believe such friction provides the pause needed to thoughtful registrations. The fees also are essential to furthering the ENS long term value. The fees however must be justified, and feel strongly that any increase (or decrease) must be supported by transparent accounting.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree: Funds first and foremost must be used to sustain operations. I would ask for some formalized vetting process for for teams and individuals invested in. For this reason, the ENS DAO should have clear and core values/principles to measure potential projects against.

  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree: As long as decentralization is preserved. This being said, I am not afraid to admit that I would want to hear more debate on this topic/have more supporting arguments. What does the “greatest extent possible without sacrificing decentralization” look like?

My web3 qualifications / skills:
As far as web3 technical skills go, I have little to no experience. I do however have a lot of experience with community building, scaling of companies and ecom, and a genuine fascination of web3 that has recently changed my view of how I see the world. I am a quick learner, and have strong presentation skills and business acumen. I am willing to listen and practice empathy in my interactions with other people, and lend advocacy to others whenever I am able. Not sure if this application will be taken seriously given the lack of core web3 skills, but my passion and energy for the space is immense, and I feel a broad range of Delegates will help avoid an echo chamber and create the discord internally needed to push ENS further.

Thank you for your time!

ENS name: collinpixley.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: Since my very first on-chain interaction with Ethereum I knew the address form would hinder later adoption and cause mistakes for beginners. When I learned about ENS I knew this could be one step in the right direction toward solving for that hurdle. After onboarding many to Ethereum, I have always suggested registering an ENS for ease of use and a beginner lesson to interacting with smart contracts. I am very excited to be able to represent those in the community who agree with my views on ENS as a blockchain public good and great onboarding tool.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: With over 150k wallets holding and using ENS Domains it is important to ensure the long-term viability and sustainability of ENS and ensure that the ENS community grows as adoption of crypto increases. As someone thinking about consumer crypto apps and the opportunity to onboard millions of users into crypto, I believe I can represent the ENS community and be a strong advocate for their interests.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree
    It is important for users to have control over the usage and ownership of their web3 identity without the interference of a third-party entity.
  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree
    Registration fees enable the ENS Domain ecosystem to be sustainable while disincentivizing speculative purchases of ENS Domains.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
    As adoption of ENS increases, it is important for the protocol to be functional. Income from Registration fees should go towards maintaining and developing the protocol to stay up-to-date with advances in this space.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
    It is important to integrate with existing systems and ensure interoperability in order to increase adoption of ENS Domains.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I want to help build the decentralized world. To leave the world better than I found it. To assist in protecting the free and open internet. To help advance society.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree - Except where the name is used to profit from or proliferate human rights abuses, human trafficking, slavery, child pornography, or abuse of animals.

  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree - Especially in favor of preventing speculative registration of names.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree

My web3 qualifications / skills: I am a 31 year old Cum Laude Computer Engineering Graduate from the University of Houston. I have worked on satellite controlled drones for Boeing. I have built cloud infrastructure for Amazon, Regeneron, Twitch, CBS, among others. I’ve been involved in the crypto space since 2015, but I quit working for companies and have been investing in crypto full time for about 3 months now. I’m studying Solidity and other blockchain technologies. I am also studying the legal framework of the formation of trusts. Trusts are in my opinion the legal and historical precident for the DAO. I would love to contribute to the ENS DAO with my techical skills and knowledge, legal knowledge, sound judgment, and love for crypto and a decentralized open world. Thank you for your time.

ENS name: mihal.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I’ve been a strong supporter of ENS for years, and built multiple applications using ENS in unique ways. One example is the Burner Wallet, which not only resolves ENS names, but actually had a plugin allowing users to register temporary “burnable” ENS subdomains. I also built DeFi777, an application that uses ENS names and ERC777 tokens to simplify DeFi actions.

I believe my experience as a developer and experience developing on top of ENS will be relevant to the governance process. I’m particularly interested in guiding ENS’s efforts to make domain names more accessable on L2.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**

Enforcing a social contract of non-interference with the ownership of ENS names is the only way to deter influence of nation states and other large actors.

  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**

Agreed

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

I believe ENS income should primarily fund ENS and ENS-related projects.

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

Strongly agree

ENS name: ceresstation.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I believe that the true potential of web3 is to completely change how we fund public infrastructure. On the internet, identities are one key piece of that infrastructure. As Alisha recently noted, it’s hard to imagine having to type in an IP address every time we want to visit a website for information, and we’ll soon feel the same way about how we use addresses to transfer value.

Most importantly, it’s very possible for us to still end up in a world where these critical functions in the metaverse are owned by existing web2 monoliths like Facebook. Ultimately, that’s a major issue for anyone that believes they should have more control over the next phase of the web, and more interoperability between the services that they use.

By becoming a delegate of the ENS ecosystem, I can help push forward not just the ENS ecosystem but the public goods space on the whole as I’ve done through my work as a co-founder of Gitcoin and as a participant in a number of other related organizations in the past, such as the Digital Public Goods Alliance and Ethereum Foundation Grants.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**

I think absolute ownership is a fundamental prerequisite to an open, community owned web.

  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**

Fees are not always bad, fees can help keep organizations sustainable, and ultimately can be used to help make sure users act in good faith, and don’t attack the system without consequence.

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

Fees are also good because it’s possible to use them to sustain ENS itself and the ecosystem on the whole. There’s a huge amount of potential in web3 for public goods to govern themselves, but perhaps even more potential to allow them to sustain themselves.

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

We can’t repeat the mistakes of web2 and create walled gardens, we have to be part of the larger ecosystem and that includes leveraging existing well-adopted systems.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

  • Actively participated in the Ethereum ecosystem since 2016 (and surprisingly, started a DAO project back then as well)
  • Co-founded Gitcoin which has funded over $40m in public infrastructure to date
  • Helped push forward one of the first Digital Public Goods Alliance communities of practice
  • Served as a committee member in a variety of community grants programs including Ethereum Foundation Grants
  • Advised a number of new web3 public goods related projects to help further my broader beliefs about how the ecosystem should evolve

ENS name: awe.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I’m passionate about crypto. I’ve been in the space for many years and I want to be on top of the next trends. I’m very bullish on Ethereum being the de facto web3 blockchain and obviously ENS will control the domain infrastructure. I feel like I’m uniquely position because I understand web3 technology more than the average user and have implemented RFC specs on the engineering side. I have a strong background in software engineering.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

Disagree. I think we would explore a better name ownership and revenue model that is fair to all parties. I don’t think being a first mover should give you absolute rights.

Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

Agree. ENS is a SaaS product and typically reoccurring revenue has been proven to be a successful model for SaaS product. I am opened to exploring additional incentives.

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

Agree. Although I could be convinced private entities could be worth pursuing if it’s highly beneficial for ENS.

ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment):
Agree. This would be awesome for everyone involved with this project.

  • Previously at a crypto hedge fund working in prop trading.
  • Currently working on a defi protocol on Ethereum using solidity and other web3 technologies. I understand solidity, familiar with the popular EIPs ad Ethereum’s history, and understand how protocols work across the blockchain.
  • I’m very adept with defi products and trading.

ENS name: whoismoses.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: Decentralization and crypto has changed my life for the better and I want to help move the world to be a much more decentralized place.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)** - Agreed. However there are fees for the renewal of name. One might not be able to pay them in the future. If this is an “absolute right” renewal fees should be optional. ENS should find ways to incentivize payments through new services or just take a tiny fee as part of record updates. For example changing 0.01 or 0.001 for ENS record changes. As the web3 world will be using ENS as an account not just an identifier their ENS name becomes their identity. No one has the right to take that away. If the ENS foundation was at risk of failing due to funding, it would be in the best interest of ENS name owners to donate to keep their names safe.
  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)** - Agreed, some friction makes every process better.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)** - Agreed, product roadmap and value add services are important to the continued life of the ENS foundation. Proper management of funds and proper product management are required.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Disagree. Legacy DNS names are just another way that people can be controlled as the management of them is centralized and those assets can be seized by governments. If the governance team chooses to continue legacy DNS integration that is fine, I don’t think it should be an immutable tenant of the ENS foundation.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

  • The number one qualification I have is I am a believer in decentralized control will eventually bring true freedom to all humans. Centralized control is a great threat and has been all along. We know have the technology to enable decentralized systems, organization, and currencies.
  • I’ve been in the cryptocurrency space as an investor, node operator, and miner since 2015. It has changed my life for the better is so many ways. I must continue to give back.
  • I believe ENS critically important. So important that I have registered the ENS names for my son, wife, business (each of them), me, my online handles.
  • I am one of the founders of a DAO that has not launched yet, built on Ethereum. Though I am a founder, once governance starts, I’ll be just one of the token holders. It is a leaderless organization.
  • I am a Software Engineer
  • I own a decent amount of digital art that is special because it is mine and no one can take it away from me.
  • I know I already said this, but personal freedoms are very important to me and someone’s identity is at the top of that list. I want ENS to be successful and I am willing to be more than just an active participant.
