ENS name: markg.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: One of the largest benefits of web3 and crypto is the concept of ownership. Simply, I believe that ENS provides a novel means of ownership for online identity moving forward, putting consumers back in control of their identities and the extent to which they want to share.
Wallets have been a great use case of ENS in action, and I am incredibly excited about ENS’ applications there. But I think that’s just the tip of the iceberg for digital identity. Fortunately, the decision to open source the project / create a DAO for the community is an important step in ensuring this ENS can be used to its fullest potential for identity, and I would love to contribute to the future of it.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
- Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
- Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree. Will be helpful in reducing spam / excessive speculation although I suppose they will always be issues.
- Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
- ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree. This will be key for mass adoption, although need to be careful to retain decentralization.
My web3 qualifications / skills: I have a background and training in finance and early stage investing. My first personal foray into crypto was back in 2017, and I began spending time in the space professionally two years later, having invested in projects built atop Bitcoin, Ethereum and Flow. I understand the history of crypto, token economics, and the infrastructure that DAOs rely on. All the more, I’ve onboarded tens of people (colleagues, friends, family, etc.) into the space and recognize the need for building accessible user interfaces that facilitate the process of getting folks into crypto.
Most importantly, I am an avid ENS user and will be gifting some to my family over the holidays
