ENS name: 0xDitto.eth
I’ve followed ENS since it’s initial development - actually before it was a thing - when Vitalik first mentioned the concept of public key tied names in a post. My first registered ENS names were lost due to losing access to a private key. I was inspired by the project so I claimed another (despite the fees). The concept of user owned identities really appeals to me in this era of corporate ownership and lend.
- Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree
We provide value to platforms by the content we bring to them. If we are adding this value under a “loaned name” corporations can and will de-platform us should it be expedient or profitable to do so.
- Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree
Registration fees give names value. If something is free or low cost it is considered worthless. Registration fees also prevent users/groups from squatting.
- Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
The value of a service like ENS is directly proportional to its level of adoption. It serves us as a community to leverage funding to assist with integrations.
- ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
