ENS DAO Delegate Applications

ENS name: ensrus.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: My eyes light up every time I even think about Blockchain, Ethereum, and of course, ENS. I discovered ENS last April 2021 - and from that moment I instantly recognized the crucially important implications, and gravity of such a system to the blockchain ecosystem. The more I studied ENS, the more value and beauty that I would continue to find. Ethereum is the root of functional blockchain, and ENS is of that same root and vein. I would like to be a delegate because I genuinely care about the ENS ecosystem and would love to ensure that it exemplifies cautiously-strategic growth, while focussing on ethical-driven longevity. Also, Just like Ethereum, I AM [proudly] Canadian.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree

There should not be any pre-defined roads to reach the predetermined goal, only ethical-logic to help guide us to the most reasonable courses of action to for the best possible results in each circumstance.

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”

Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree

We occupy an innovative, ever-dynamic space, as is the world as whole, ever-dynamic. ENS governance should be permitted to enact reasonable fee changes that ensure system integrity in regard to functionality and economical continuity, as long as it is clear to the user-bace of the intention of the changes, so they are not perceived as cash grabs or for purposes that do not coincide with ENS organizational / strategic goals.

Perception is reality, and transparency is “the first rule of blockchain Club”

Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree

Governance must ensure that proper diligence is exercised in the funding of public goods to ensure that not just the short-term, but the long-term goals of the public good to be funded are alligned with the ENS system, and ethical standards in-which it subscribes.

We’ll leave the Frankensteins to Mary Shelly

ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree

ENS should integrate only at “the edge” of the web2 | web3 space. While integration with centralized systems are increasingly necessary to act as a bridge in the onboarding and subsequent melting pot from web2 to web3, ENS must be cautious to only integrate with existing centralized systems, and not to create on its own, any technology that is considered to be centralized as each time we create a centralized component of the blockchain ecosystem, we are actually taking 2 steps back instead on one step forward.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

“After all, I got a car and he got a computer.” - If you don’t recognize this line, you may not understand the level of passion instilled in technology enthusiasts such as myself. My first experience with a calculator as a child lead to revelations that there were machines that were capable of becoming an extension of our body / brain. I could enter giant numbers into this machine and it would instantaneously calculate these giant numbers - this mini computer made me into a superhuman and I instantly appreciated its simple brilliance. My first computer was called a PET, though though my passion began with an Apple II, eventually graduating to the MAC SE (a computer with a hard-drive!,) and eventually a Packard Bell 8088 with an amber colored monitor and a 2400 Baud modem. I was completely fascinated and enamored with being able to communicate with others through Compuserve and Prodigy chats & games. In the 90’s, a friend’s brother who was enrolled in the University of Toronto Dental program, demoed for us a dial-in system that was completely text-based and was basically an indexible source of boundless information - this became the Internet - and I never looked back since.

For at least 10 years prior to the introduction of web3, I had a gut feeling that I would share with anyone who would listen.

The gut feeling was as follows:

I felt there had to be some way to interface with another dimension, where we could creatively, ethically and logically create opportunities for ourselves that were not possible in this, the 3rd dimension, and then somehow monetize our actions and enjoy the spoils in the 3rd dimension. When I first caught a glimpse of the Ethereum.org homepage for the first time, my heart dropped instantly, and there was a connection that I can’t explain - I knew immediately this was the place I saw in my dreams, the new world to interface with, where almost any logical-thing is possible. I welcomed myself home and made myself at home by familiarizing myself with every possible aspect of web3, and continue to learn about it in every waking hour. I have the skills, experience, and knowledge to be a tremendous to ENS and the community as a whole.

Respectfully submitted.

ENS name: offcamber.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I believe that ENS will be a critical part of onboarding mainstream users to web3, both in terms of a familiarity bridge and making the UX better overall by linking a user’s “wallet” to the user’s chosen plain language “identity”. I see serving as a delegate as an opportunity to give back and to learn and to grow with the experience.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 594
• Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree
• Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree, but I do think there needs to be discussion about mitigating the increasing costs, which are a significant barrier to entry for some users.
• Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree. This is paramount to the longevity of any decentralized ecosystem.
• ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree.
My web3 qualifications / skills: My technical (i.e. coding) skills are limited, but I have done self-study of Solidity to have some understanding of the language. I am not a “digital native”, and that’s a good thing in this context because I know what it’s like to struggle to learn about and operate in this space. Making that transition easier for others like me is a personal mission. I see it when I try to onboard people into the ecosystem. As far as skills, I’ve been a practicing attorney for 17 years, am working on building a crypto/web3 section at my firm, have helped many companies grow, and my most rewarding legal work is as an advocate of voting rights for traditionally underrepresented persons.

My web3 qualifications / skills: Full time web developer / launched two separate fully onchain NFTs - experience participating in other DAOs

ENS name: Amicus.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

Of all the web3 technologies, the NFT and the domain names are the most important steppingstones for mass adoption and demand for data self sovereignty and decentralized use cases.

I passionately believe in the ENS potential, message and mission and I would like to see decentralization succeed.

I have governance experience IRL in the not for profit, co-op, and profit sectors as well as DAO governance, and I am a legal thought leader on the position of DAOs and tokens. I quit trad-punk life last year and I have the time to contribute. I work full time in DAOs and crypto.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 597

Name ownership is an absolute right: I agree.

User ownership of digital rights and digital assets is core to the success of web3 – this is the paradigm shift from web2.

Our current domain names can be seized or denied arbitrarily. I know this, I have experience on the governance team at a national domain name authority where they have denied and/or killed domains.

Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: I agree

Fees make the ENS experience better. Human behaviour is simple, if something is free it is not handled with care, open to carelessness and abuses like spam and invites costless vectors for malicious attacks. When there is a cost to access or to ownership, human behaviour is incentivised.

Income funds ENS and other public goods: I agree

ENS should develop a strategy or strategic plan, and approve high level guidance on investments, and rely on that as the sounding board to grant internal and external funding.

ENS Integrates with the global namespace: I agree

The path to mass adoption will be accelerated by partnerships and making the onramp easier. The is time sensitive. The Web2 institutions will continue to deny and de platform web3, for example from app stores, until they think they can seize web3 for themselves.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

Governance – Bankless DAO ombudsman, Founding member of Bankless DAO legal Guild, committee at Shapeshift DAO, IRL chair of not for profit board, governance committee at financial entity, prior career in leadership

Strategic planning/ definitions of requirements – experience as strategic planning consultant

Lawyer – privacy, DAO, tokenization, blockchain, regulatory, cross border tax, some IP.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I’ve been participating in DAOs and web3 communities for years but have never officially become a delegate. I believe ENS is a core pillar of the Ethereum and Web3 ecosystem and I am extremely excited to take a more active role in governing how this base layer infrastructure can be expanded. Identity is a key component in the future we are building and ENS will play a very important role.

I have been working for Gitcoin for almost 3 years now, and in my view, ENS is a public good we all need to support and collaborate with.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

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

Agree - enforcing property rights (physical and digital) is critical to building a functional society, only now we can do so with code, not violence.

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

Agree - similar to gas costs on Ethereum, fees prevent the tragedy of the commons.

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

Agree - ENS is a clear public good and needs a treasury to support ongoing development. Additionally, other public goods in the Web3 space need to support each other and collaborate.

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

Agree - build more bridges to convert Web2 into Web3 (but without retracting the value and power of native ENS domains.

I have been exploring blockchain and web3 since 2017. I am recently engaged myself in development activities surrounding NFT / smart contracts. Stamped with Mech engineering degree and reasonable amount of experience in supply chain / operations I believe blockchain can solve a plethora of challenges and I hence want to be a key player in integration of blockchain in operations / supply chain in future.

ENS name: aesth.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: ENS has been moving cautiously in the past few years for many good reasons. With the launch of $ENS, I expect to see rapid growth of ENS, but the speed also inherently comes with the risk. By becoming a delegate, I want to contribute my vision to ENS to make sure that the decisions are made wisely and ENS is accepted widely. If things are done correctly, ENS has the potential of being recognized as a global namespace and thus brings the awareness of decentralized system to the public to the next level.

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). A reasonable registration fee ensures that the namespace is in good use. Otherwise, there will be too many tombstone domains with great names. The lack of registration fee could make the ENS namespace less valuable (both monetarily and practically). However, the definition of “premium domains” is still debatable. Currently, domains less than 5 chars are more expensive. I don’t have a formalized opinion on it, and it definitely requires more thinking and debate.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree).
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree) but with a catch. To influence more people, ENS needs to be come a global namespace. However, this needs to be done very carefully to maintain a good social coordiantion as mentioned in this previous post. Therefore, I think ENS should stick with the .eth TLD for now, and allow it to the global namespace, and don’t grant other global namespace integration unless .eth is proven to be successful. If ENS is going to work on other TLDs, the quantity of TLDs should be very limited (again, to be a good citizen).

My web3 qualifications / skills:

  • Solidity
  • High level knowledge of other block chains such as SOL, DOT, etc
  • Senior software engineer at a well-known tech company (working on authentication / security / privacy / cryptography related features)
  • Java, C++, JS, GO
  • HTTP, Web APIs
  • I’m currently owning and maintaining multiple .com, .io and a few other miscellaneous domains.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

Hey ENS Fam! :wave: Many of you know me as volunteer who helped you to setup your .eth name or clarified tricky points covering various aspects of ENS protocol. Those who don’t know me I’m Spike and I spent a lot of time on discord helping people to find their way around.

I acquired my first .eth name many years ago via what was then called “vickery auction” and followed the project ever since.

I would be a great Delegate because I really know how to feel the heartbeat of the community. Constantly talking to people on a daily basis would allow me to see where ENS protocol should be steered. On top of that I managed to build effective rapport with core ENS team which would help to facilitate effective discussion.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 582

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

STRONGLY AGREE

That is the whole point of ENS, code is the law and name ownership must be absolute

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

Agree

DAO delegates should have strictly neutral stance towards regulation of ENS with various fees and incentives. Lobbying any particular group of agents will introduce significant bias into the system and will very likely break the protocol in the long term. Moreover it is important to keep policy consistent throughout years, introducing sudden changes to incentive mechanism would break protocol’s perception as stable public good – any modifications should be predictable and easily interpreted by the community.

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

Absolutely

Managing public good is very tricky, because goals of such enterprise differ considerably from for profit company, but certain agenda remains intact such as maximizing coverage and utility and eventually achieving global reach. Managing funds of public good type enterprise must be approached with what in economics is called “efficient social planner” mindset. In other words, such decision maker would strive to achieve best result for all agents in the system.

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

Somewhat agree.

This vector of development is tricky. There is considerable upside to implementing integrations with classic DNS system. For every new product on the market it is important to build bridges between protocols, DNS integration ensures wider adoption of ENS.

On the other hand whole DNS system was designed around value extraction mechanisms, as such those entities profiting from DNS might oppose disruption of stable revenue generation model. Any external influence, such as ENS can be seen as threat. In similar fashion as blockchain disrupting traditional banking industry.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

My background is tightly linked with Economics. I used to cover financial markets and build sophisticated financial models. Of all the people I know very well how global financial architecture is engineered and how it is contributing to rising inequality and restricting human freedoms. So, when I came across concept of decentralisation in 2016 I immediately fell into the rabbit hole.

Throughout recent years I analyzed number of protocols by looking at whitepaper, checking feasibility of case and relevance of problem solved. My interests include study of L1 protocols’ consensuses, examination of tokenomics including assessment of voting and governance mechanisms. On a higher level I like to examine market trends and explore hot areas of industry such as cross chain dexes and algorithmic stable coins.

Web3 paradigm is already here and I am super excited to be part of it.

I will be forceful and effective administrator.

Vote for me!
