My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
RabbitHole is honored to apply to be an ENS DAO delegate to support the creation of an identity layer for web3.
We’d like to be a delegate because:
We’re mission aligned: We’re on a mission to build the best place to find + discover work based on proven credentials. In doing so, we hope to help create a more crypto-literate, meritocratic, and self-sovereign world.
In this world we’re building, you earn as you learn, adding credentials to your on-chain resume that demonstrates knowledge across various areas of expertise, letting you “one-click apply” to job opportunities + get matched with roles directly applicable to your skills.
Having an identity layer as a public good in crypto is crucial to this future, and we believe ENS is primed to remain the market leader in this space.
We’re already stewards of the ENS community: As the market leader in customer acquisition + token distribution for protocols, we’re focused on helping protocols find the right token holders through Quests (token distributions) and Skills (verifiable credentials). We’ve worked with countless other DAOs, hold their tokens in our treasury, and built our strategy around metagovernance in these projects to align incentives + build the most positive-sum web3 ecosystem as possible.
Thousands of users acquired + registered their first ENS domain through RabbitHole, and countless new users look to us for education in how to get started in crypto. We’re dedicated to onboarding the next wave of web3 users, and guiding them through the process of acquiring an ENS domain is one of the first steps in our playbook. We’ll continue to promote ENS as the gold standard for creating one’s web3 identity, and pledge ourselves to active governance in the ENS DAO.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 644 25:
- Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
- Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree
- Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
- ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
My web3 qualifications / skills:
The RabbitHole team has deep crypto-native roots, working at some of the leading consumer teams in web3 (Dapper Labs, OpenSea, etc.) and the largest ecosystems in DeFi (MakerDAO, MetaCartel, etc.). We’ve been through bull & bear markets, and we care deeply about building crypto primitives that stand the test of time.
