ENS name: onlythelonely.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: To assist in the governance, stability, and further propagation of the ENS protocol. As an early adopter of Ethereum domain names in 2019, I saw the value ENS would bring to Web 3.0 andthe EVM as a whole. I want to do what I can to help build and maintain a truly decentralized web.

My web3 qualifications / skills: Economist. Futurist. Strategist. Experimenter. Early adopter. I am all-in. Complete decentralization of all human technology systems is the only way forward. DAOs are essential to the propagation of power into the hands of the many rather than the few.

ENS name: brettmontaigne.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

ENS represents the first step towards a truly decentralized internet. This will enable censorship-resistant discussion and control of information.

I’m a crypto trader, blockchain developer, and NFT artist. Being an ENS delegate to me means contributing to a more free and democratic participation flow of information and currency.

It’s clear the marketplace for eth addresses is bottlenecked by high gas fees and keyword limitations, restricting retail participation. There’s still a lot of friction due to fees and unavailability for Average Joe to go buy averagejoe.eth (if it is even still available). We need a roadmap for long-term onboarding of new TLD suffixes.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

Blockchain developer on Ethereum (Solidity, ethers.js, Truffle stack, etc.)

I’m also a crypto trader. I’ve built custom ML models based on market price predictions. Releasing a new API soon that provides triangular arbitrage as a service for any arbitrary set of crypto assets. See my github for more details. https://www.github.com/brettmontaigne

Software developer for 6+ years, formerly a student @ UC Berkeley. Prefer functional programming. Python, Golang, Scala, Rust, and Haskell are my jam.

ENS name: aimuno.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I want to be a delegate as I want to promote the web3 Ethereum network and strongly believe this will help in smoothing decentralizing apps and help everyone to not depend on a few centralized companies.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
    Name ownership across different platforms will be beneficial for web3 apps.

ENS name: dominikto.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

When I grew up (blocking the -back then- analog landlines at home) venturing out into dial-up bulletin board systems and later the early internet, almost everything online was about learning, tinkering, using and building open standards, interoperability, community and making new friends.

ENS and the community around it bring back fond memories of that time and I believe that ENS can be a core piece of infrastructure on the journey to bring back the time where everyone online was not just a user of proprietary products but an active participant on an open internet.

I will strongly advocate for ENS.

My web3 qualifications / skills: I am a developer and previously built a SaaS product (and company) to organize, sync & share contacts, calendars and taks across platforms and devices around our open core sabre/dav (a framework and server to implement the open standards WebDAV/CardDAV/CalDAV, powering sync features in products such as ownCloud, nextCloud, Box and a bunch of others). I am a lawyer by education.

So far I haven’t put any web3 project into production, but it probably goes without saying that I have tinkered with Solidity and am an avid web3 user and community member.

I spend my days looking at and working with all sorts of exciting founders and software companies along the modern software infra and developer tools stack - naturally almost all of them are open source companies.

You can find me on Twitter (@DominikTo).

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I have been researching and discussing with friends and am very interested about the industry. I have lots to learn but am excited about the future prospects.

ENS name: tibor.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I’ve been following the progression of ENS since its inception in 2017 and purchased my first .eth domain after the bid-reveal system was changed to what we have now.

I’m fascinated by the global namespace as a whole ever since the first offer I ever got which was for a 3 letter YouTube username in the 2000s.

That made me learn all about the multi-billion dollar industry of domains and now my goal is to help the community harness the full potential of .eth domains in this era of mobile payments, one touch trading, CBDCs and digital identity. I’ve also held presentations about ENS at Eit Digital and at a Master of Finance program so far.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree

  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree
    A fair-play fee system is also needed to give new users a chance to register considerably premium domains that would otherwise be left unused.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree

  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
    With .eth we have a whole new use case of domains - a standard for payments. So I’d say yes!

My web3 qualifications / skills:

I’ve been working with Solidity and Remix for smaller contracts since version 4 but rather went with programming front-ends in Node, React and Angular recently. I also took part in testing the Gnosis Safe iOS prototype and helped rebrand it from Safe Multisig.

I believe that the constantly evolving technology of web3 results in always having a lot more to learn for everybody; and it’s been a fun journey for me so far!

ENS name: hyperdao.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: HyperDAO is one of the best performing IEO on OKex Jumpstart in 2020. We keep exploring the possibilities of DAO governance and believe that the UX of Web 3.0 is severely lacking and one of the biggest obstacles that need to be addressed before it can truly become the next paradigm for the internet.

  • We are knowledgeable on the current DNS system and currently interact with it on a regular basis
  • We have been into cryptocurrency since 2012 when we started mining BTC
  • We are early adopters of DAO governance and think that DAOs are the future

ENS name: kn00t.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I am seeking for ways to take responsibility for the tools I create as
an information technology researcher and therefore I put myself forward
to help building the number assignment clearinghouse of the Web3.

For decades now we observe and endure rising inequality, stagnation and the
manifestaton of the data sharing economy caused by just a few initial
design flaws:

In 1998 the pioneering, voluntary work of Jon Postel was replaced by a
private non-profit company to henceforth coordinate the assignment of
names (TLDs) to numbers (IP addresses).

Imagine how the internet would look like today, if we had DAOs in place
at that time to make coordinated, informed and joint decisions about
named entities.

Wallets can wrap almost everything now. Tokens (“programmable money”)
and smart contracts codify and efficiently scale trust and define social
identity for humans.

Postel’s robustness principle: “Be liberal in what you accept, and
conservative in what you send” when applied for governance tokens almost
seems like trivially true: His ingenious insight when combined with
decentralized, crypto-native technology can eventually be turned into
flexible, interoperable, scalable and community-owned (naming) systems.

Let’s begin to decentralize the allocation of names to wallet adresses.
Let’s build a cross-chain naming system for people to navigate the
Metaverse. Let’s proof Postel’s principle right.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

I am a technology-driven social individual. I aquired some technical
skills along the way. I worked in IT infrastructure and research data
projects for several years, followed by medical data interoperability
work and data-driven research for medical technology, tumor research,
microscopy and the humanities. I recently founded Alas DAO to advance
education as a public good with focus on STEAM education (science,
technology, arts, engineering and math) for children and teenagers from
disadvantaged backgrounds.

ENS name: forefrontdao.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
This application represents Forefront DAO and our contributors, who have voted unanimously to apply to be a delegate. Our interest in becoming a delegate comes from our strongly aligned mission with ENS. As ENS works to build a truly decentralized global identity platform, our mission at Forefront is to provide the port of entry to web3 for all of those people who choose to participate in it.

In addition to overlapping missions, we have and want to continue to have strong ties to ENS as organizations. We believe deeply in the approach ENS is taking towards community ownership and stewardship of the steps that will ensure the future we build is better than what came before. That is the same approach we are taking to paving clear paths to important projects in web3. ENS core contributors have been and continue to be active core contributors at Forefront, and this application reflects our desire to pay that contribution forward as this ecosystem continues to develop.

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: Agree.
  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: Agree.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree.

My web3 qualifications / skills: Over the past year Forefront has built the port of entry to web3. We do that via a number of products, including Forefront Market which curates the leading token projects and provides a number of key insights on each to our community. We’ve also built Forefront Learn, a set of courses to onboard thousands of new people to the possibilities that this new system enables. Our newsletter and content reaches tens of thousands of people per week and over the coming months we will have several exciting new ventures to help achieve our mission.

As a DAO we have onboarded thousands of members into our Discord, as well as 30 core contributors across a number of guilds. Forefront brings a strong reputation and expertise to the table and has a diverse community which is composed of members of many tokenized communities in the space, including FWB, Seed Club, Whale, and Rally.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

My motivation for being a delegate rests solely on a desire to contribute to a protocol I believe has vital importance to the Ethereum community. As social adoption increases there will be no difference between that community and the global community of individuals who seek to explore more functional models of social organization. ENS provides an invaluable service to the Ethereum community and I think that the problems ENS holders will confront will have broad spanning implications in global conversations concerning digital identity.

l. Name ownership shall not be infringed. /Agree

Publicly verifiable ownership rests at the cornerstone of DLTs. .eth names are technically an “asset” and protecting users rights to hold and use those assets as they see fit is something that ENS has been successfully doing for years. It makes sense that this is the first Article in the ENS constitution as it is the fundamental value proposition of the Ethereum Naming Service. I think that upholding and protecting the first article of the constitution will be of primary importance for the future of ENS as a viable alternative to centralized services.

ll. Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism. /Disagree

While I think that fees act as a primary layer of defense for potential abuse of the ENS I disagree that they that they are the primary reason to charge fees for the services that ENS provides.

  1. Deter users from abusing the ENS for speculative reasons.

2.Compensation for the individuals who make ENS a reality now and in the future.

3.Building a robust and secure platform that can offer users a reliable way to interact with the Web3 namespace.

All three are of equal importance to me as someone who has an interest in ENS governance and the future of global social organization. ENS is a service and service providers should be compensated for the value they offer their users. While I don’t agree with the current wording of article 2, I strongly agree that fees are a vital component to protecting the integrity of ENS in a broader sense.

III. Income funds ENS and other public goods. Agree /Disagree

I agree wholeheartedly that revenue generated by ENS should be used to maintain and protect the services provided by ENS. Whether this is team compensation, gitcoin grants or payment for services that make ENS possible (hosting services,audits, team development), all are appropriate uses of funds.

As it is currently defined, a “public good” consists of having non-rivalrous and non-excludable qualities. While I consider multiple publicly accessible services ( Ethereum, IPFS,ENS) to be public goods, the technical definition of “public good” excludes all three. Definitions are important, even more so when they are articles of a constitution and I think that phrasing and verbiage should be built to last. I would suggest changing “public good” to an alternative that has a broader definition.(publicworks,digital infrastructure etc….)

I have no issues with the idea that ENS could use revenue to fund development of publicly accessible services as along as there exists a robust treasury to ensure the security and future of ENS.

IV. ENS Integrates with the global namespace. Agree

I think that this is the most exciting article in the proposed constitution, the global namespace is yet to be clearly defined and I believe services like ENS and IPFS will be pivotal in creating functional frameworks for how public spaces are defined not only in Web3 but in a global context that is not dependent on boarders or political/ideological frameworks.

V. Amendments to this constitution by majority vote.

I personally think that Article V needs to be reworked to protect against the potential issues that result from a publicly traded governance token. While tokenized governance is a remarkable social structure being explored on public networks, it has not yet created a robust ethical framework to protect against majority interest being controlled by small wealthy groups of individuals. While the majority of available tokens have been set aside for the Airdrop there is no provision to protect against a third party acquiring a controlling interest in the ENS D.A.O. through secondary markets.

I personally think that there should be a provision limiting voting rights of a party that acquired a majority share of voting power through secondary markets. An example being that if a party where to acquire a majority of tokens their voting power would be limited to the top delegates voting power or some other provision to protect against potential governance attacks.

Majority Vote is a functional model until those voting rights are traded openly on public markets. As it stands this article in the constitution will function as intended but the possibility for abuse arises and I believe the constitution should address that possibility from the very beginning.

ENS Name
SmartDomain.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
I built my first website 19 years ago. I was elated when it was featured on the evening news, but horrified by how bad my site looked on TV. In the years since I’ve watched entrepreneurs thrive, political movements catch fire, technology transform our world. I’ve also seen great ideas and entire movements crushed by governments and corporations. I want to be a delegate to the ENS DAO to protect both ENS and its users from governments, corporations, and anyone else who would seek to centralize or otherwise exert control over ENS domains, its users, or its partners.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree…Strongly. Yes, there is a possibility that ENS domains and other blockchain domains will be used for purposes we all find distasteful or even reprehensible. However, once ENS takes away or tries to limit access or use of a domain, it is no longer a decentralized organization. This is a slippery slope that must be avoided. There will be bad actors, of course, this is still the web after all, but if we exert control over one domain, we’ll soon be asked to do the same for a second domain. Soon, and perhaps without knowing it, we may end up quashing a political movement in an oppressed country or ending the dreams of an Uber driver trying to beat the big companies at their own game. My hope is that the transparency of the blockchain and the integrity of this community will be powerful enough forces to dissuade and counter any threat.

  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree. Fees should be used to keep domain speculation under control and to make sure that abandoned domains eventually become available for registration by the public. Fees need to remain reasonable though. Raising them too high makes them accessible to only individuals of means or companies with big budgets. Web3, at its best, is meant to democratize the web by making it accessible to everyone regardless of means.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree. Funds raised by ENS should be used to ensure the long-term success of ENS and to build features beneficial to users and to the growth of the system. Funds raised beyond these needs should be used for Web3 projects which benefit the public good and advance the mission of ENS.

  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree. ENS does not exist separate from DNS…ENS exists alongside DNS. The two need to work together as we evolve from Web 2.0 to Web3.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
My experience includes front-end development. SEO, internet marketing, and working as a journalist covering, among other topics, the internet of everything! I’m an entrepreneur currently building a Web3-based business.
