ENS name: grantharris.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I believe that the UX of Web 3.0 is severely lacking and one of the biggest obstacles that needs to be addressed before it can truly become the next paradigm for the internet. I also believe that ENS is going to play a huge part in pushing the UX forward to bring it more mainstream and I can help ENS achieve those goals.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree - The ownership of an ENS domain is a right that everyone should have and should not be infringed upon. However, there should be mechanisms to help prevent abuse of the system from malicious actors. I believe this to be one of the biggest challenges with decentralization within Web 3.0 and hope to be able to contribute my voice to the discussion.
Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree - Like Ethereum itself, there must be costs to interact with ENS to prevent malicious actors from dominating the space and ruining the system for everyone else.
Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree - While I do think that ENS should work towards being able to fund other projects that also subscribe to the same ethos as ENS, I would be very cautious about committing any funds to those projects at least in the short-term. ENS is too important and must be protected at all costs, even if it means not funding other projects.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree - This objective needs to happen in order for ENS to become mainstream and be the go-to solution for Web 3.0 identity. There must be at least some continuity from Web 2.0 in order to help the mainstream crowd transition to Web 3.0.
