ENS name: natfacts.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I believe in an inclusive Web3 future where self custody and personal autonomy can empower participants to truly own their identities.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree
Name ownership and particularly the ability to retain control over one’s own name, is a core principle of decentralized identity.
Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree
Fees are a disincentive to ENS-squat. We have often been in situations in which the domain we want is unavailable due to a squatter. This can still happen in the web3 world, but we need to impose a cost to doing so, and fees make sense in this respect.
Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
We cannot be sure of what the future holds. Retaining the ability to support other public good projects ensures maximum flexibility.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree
The standard Internet isn’t going away. ENS should support interoperability with it. Ownership means ownership means ownership.
My web3 qualifications / skills: I spent 5 years as a privacy and backend engineer at Palantir Technologies and am familiar with standard DNS routing as well as web 3 architectures. I also come from a background in technology policy (Georgetown) and business (Stanford MBA), so I bring multiple disciplines to challenges.
