ENS name: neiman.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I offer myself as an ENS delegate, focusing on aspects of decentralized websites based on ENS.
I’m co-founder of Esteroids and Almonit. In the last 2 years, I dedicated my life to building a community of ENS+IPFS websites builders and users. A selected collection of my publications is available in neiman.eth.
Since ENS+IPFS websites are the center of my life, I would like to be a delegate to help ENS become the ideal naming service for the dWeb.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution:
I. Name ownership is an absolute right. Agree, but with an added exception! Namely, we should add an exception in the case of theft. For example, if someone abuses a hack and steals 100K ENS names.
Such an exception should be made by a two-thirds majority and at least 5% of all tokens. This will help ENS prevent controversial moments like the arguments following The DAO hack.
II. Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism. Agree.
I may add a section in the style of “ENS goal is to benefit the public” (as opposed to maximizing its revenue). Then the registration fee section is a by-product of that.
III. Income funds ENS and other public goods. Agree.
IV. ENS Integrates with the global namespace. Agree.
It also solves the question of integration with other decentralized name services. ENS integrates with them only once they are integrated with DNS.
V. Amendments to this constitution by majority vote. Agree.
My web3 qualifications/skills: Co-founder of Esteroids, co-founder of Almonit.
I hold a PhD in mathematics from the Free University of Berlin.
Besides working on Esteroids and Almonit search engine, I co-developed Almonit Extension and Esteroids extension for ENS+IPFS websites. I was also involved (as a outside tester) in the development of .eth.limo.
I gave lectures about Web3 (example), and manage the Esteroids dWeb Discord,
I published many articles about ENS+IPFS websites, a selection of them can be found in neiman.eth.limo. Historically, I published one of the first guides (in Almonit blog) for building ENS+IPFS websites already in March 2019, and in May 2019 published the first list of ENS+IPFS websites.
My life is centered around ENS+IPFS websites in the last two years. I believe this makes me qualified to be an ENS delegate.
