ENS name: kalland.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
Protocols need delegates that are both passionate and well embedded in the broader ecosystem that it is serving. I humbly serve and contribute to many projects in the ecosystem including: Proof of Humanity / UBI (elected Mission Board), CityDAO (Core Team), Commons Stack (Trusted Seed), Token Engineering Commons (top funders), Rooted.in, and more.
My intention is to not only serve but bring participation from other communities. This goes in two directions, other DAOs are busy focusing on their tasks and need to be aware of how proposed changes will affect them. This can only be done by someone who understands both sides and how they overlap.
As a crypto veteran I was involved with early decentralized naming iterations (Namecoin, OneName). I spent years thinking about a decentralized internet and particularly name resolution. I believe this gives me a unique perspective to the challenges ENS faces. I am passionate about naming. It is such an important part of any system. We got it wrong in web 2, this is our chance to get it right.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
- Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**
- Strongly agree. This should be at the top of every web3 constitution.
- Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**
- Mostly agree. With the adoption of personhood protocols, I believe most, if not all, of the challenges mitigated by fees can be solved without money.
- Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)**
- Strongly agree. The decentralized future needs to be a public good.
- ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
- Agree. Friendly integration as long as it doesn’t compromise higher ideals. This is mostly temporary as ENS will be the global namespace.
My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am a developer with about 20 years of experience. Before committing fulltime to DAOs I was a web 2 entrepreneur with several startups under my belt. I am experienced working with blockchains and dapps, but I also have considerable experience with internet protocols including DNS (was many years ago but was a CCNP).
I am leading work on a Human Naming Service that plans to operate under human.eth. I understand both ENS and Ethereum at a low-level (but will probably cry if Nick quizzes me).
