ENS name: dwlz.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I believe in the decentralized web, but a big chunk of the crypto space is invested in centralized solutions. We’ve been there, done that, and look where it got us—single points of failure, invisible governance, etc. This is not the crypto ecosystem I want to be a part of or support.
However, ENS proposes a new way of viewing identity on the Internet, and is so much more than just a domain-name service. The current iteration has only scratched the surface of what’s possible. I’d like to see further integrations with web3 projects involving account identity and authentication. There are so many cool things to be done!
I am a very good listener, a careful decision-maker, and have been in leadership positions throughout my career. But most of all I just really want to be a part of the revolution.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
- Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree
- Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree, with comment
- The constitution holds that a secondary goal of fees is “to provide enough revenue to the DAO to fund ongoing development and improvement of ENS”. It’s important to clarify what “enough revenue” means, here. Specifically, if the DAO attains a certain low-water mark of revenue, should certain fees no longer taken? Perhaps this is something the DAO decides on later.
- Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree, with comment
- Similar to the thoughts on Section II; I wonder how soon the DAO would need to consider how quickly spending occurs. Does the DAO hold onto funds until the perfect candidate for funding or investment emerges? Or are investments made at a constant cadence? A mix? Just food for thought.
- ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
- Amendments to this constitution: Comment
- I know this wasn’t prompted, but I do I have a few comments. Is 5% a common value for DAO token participation? Basically, do I read correctly that amendments could ostensibly be passed with only 3.34% of tokens in favor of a proposal?
My web3 qualifications / skills: I’ve been using Bitcoin since 2011 and more recently sold most of it and went all in on Ethereum. I’m a professional software engineer (full-stack, more or less) and have been for over a decade. I work mostly with TypeScript, Python, Go, and maintain a few iOS apps as well (Swift/Objective-C). I recently picked up Solidity through the CryptoZombies course. I’ve deployed a few solidity contracts on mainnet (nothing major, just for fun). I also run an Eth2 validator. Yay merge!
I also happen to be participating in Uniswap’s Hackathon this week; my project actually integrates with ENS, believe it or not!
Ultimately, I’m not the most experienced web3 hacker, but I’m a quick learner and have been building early-stage projects on the web for over a decade. I don’t plan to stop learning now
