My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I hold a strong conviction that decentralized governance will elevate our human society to the next level of civilization.

Effective decentralized governance requires active participation from broad base. Effective delegation requires delegates capable of dedicating time and passion as well as connecting to their respective bases. I believe I’m a great representative for underprivileged people and software engineers as I grew up from a harsh childhood life to become software engineers for years. Crypto and Web3 brought me financial independence, allowing me allocate more time to contribute back to the community.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

Agree.

I’m open to some exception where constitution amend level voting majority can decide to acquire an ENS from its current owner with market based compensation and for public goods.

  • Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

Agree.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

Agree.

  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

Agree.

  • Amendments to this constitution by majority vote

Suggest a threshold of 2/3 majority and at least 10% of all token participation.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

  • Years of software engineering and entrepreneurial experience.
  • Crypto and decentralization advocate since 2013.
  • Invested and incubated many crypto projects.

ENS name: dutch.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I’m an early adopter in ENS and believe in the need for a decentralized naming service.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Disagree. I think we need to be open to revoking ownership in certain illegal use cases (terrorism, child porn, drug markets, etc). We also might consider revoking ownership in clear trademark squatting cases (JoshHart.eth, Cocacola.eth, etc). We all want an open, decentralized, censorship-resistant internet, but I don’t think that means we have to allow the tools we build to be used in highly immoral and illegal ways.
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Disagree. I believe the secondary goal outlined in the ENS proposed Constitution (i.e. funding the DAO and ENS development) is the more important reason to have registration/renewal fees. I believe the current ENS team has always been strangely pre-occupied with discouraging speculation and holding ENS names as an investment, and this view is misguided. Regardless, imposing a registration fee doesn’t really do much to discourage speculation - it just is baked into the secondary sales. We need only look at DNS as an example of how this doesn’t really work to discourage scalpers and squatters.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Mixed - I think we should try to work with ICANN and the existing DNS - especially to integrate resolution of the .eth extension in all browsers and email servers. But I believe we should be open to expanding suffixes besides .eth. The proposed constitution states as an example: “ENS governance must not create new top-level domains unless those domains have been granted to ENS by a DNS authority.” I don’t agree with that. I believe our goal should be that eventually ENS replaces DNS, not that it is absorbed into DNS. We shouldn’t be asking permission from ICANN to release new ENS extensions.

My web3 qualifications / skills: I’m a licensed attorney with a lot of domain name experience. I’ve been coding for more than 25 years. I’ve done a bit of solidity and have coded and deployed a React site onto IPFS resolving to an ENS name.

ENS name: kylesavoie.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
Being a delegate shows that one believes in something enough to put in the work to make their voice heard. To be in such a position is important because from this vantage point one may speak with others’ wants and needs in mind. I want to be an ENS delegate because I have a passion for the future of ENS, Ethereum, and crypto as a whole matched only by my desire to make a positive impact on the path to this future.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree (not permissible). ENS provides names. Once a name is under a user’s ownership, the terms of said ownership should not be modified under any circumstances.
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree (permissible). ENS may adjust the price for reserving names as the DAO sees fit. The market for name registrations must adapt to the situation at hand. Unlike the previous question, the price adjustment in this situation occurs before a user owns a name. This is acceptable because the contract between ENS and the owner does not change while said contract is active.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree (permissible). The development of the web3 ecosystem should be a collaborative effort where the currently successful DAOs use their success to create more progress either within, or outside of their system. Decentralization goes hand in hand with collaboration since there is no centralized party to reap the benefits of aggressive competition.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree (permissible). ENS should integrate with the current DNS system to allow for usability in the current ecosystem, but this should not be the end goal for ENS.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am a computer science student with a focus on data science. I have experience in release engineering and cloud computing from my time at Teradyne. I have spent years in the crypto space and have worked directly with a start up in its early stages (Bitquence → Ethos → Voyager (current namesake)) I am currently learning Solidity and honing my skills in web development. I have a passion for decentralization and specifically bringing financial control to the individual. Soon, I will be studying in the DeFi space full time as I see this paradigm shift as quite the time sensitive endeavor.

Much love. I am excited to see what the future holds for us all :slight_smile:

ENS name: LachlanFord.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
ENS has proven itself to be a crucial piece of infrastructure in the decentralized web3 future. I believe it will continue to serve this role and I wish to actively steward it as Web3 emerges, in alignment with the values of Web3. I believe I can play a positive role.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution:

Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Agree. Ownership must be reliable.

Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Agree. Non-extractive.

Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Agree. Positive sum.

ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Agree. Cohesion should be a goal. There appears to be a not insignificant amount of misunderstanding on this point though so the prose should be updated for clarification.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
Professional Software Engineer with 10 years of experience and I have been involved in the space since 2015. I manually audit contracts as part of DYOR. I have familiarity and experience working with tech and Web standards bodies (e.g. Khronos and W3C) and protocol governance.

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.

ENS name: nhirsch.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

Believing that the first item “Name ownership is an absolute right (or) shall not be infringed” (why did this change midstream?), I believe once you own your ENS name that it is yours forever, that renewing it is not necessary. It’s yours to keep, transfer, sell, or pass down to children. I think the ENS token and other ideas can fund the project some way without requiring people to renew/rent their own domain. Ownership has a meaning. The worry about people squatting on domains is not worth what results in/by the consequence of taking away or losing the ownership of your ENS names. Imagine someone sending ETH payments to your ENS name only a year or more later if you didn’t renew, sending payments meant for you going to someone else! Imagine someone passing whose spouse doesn’t know about renewing. Ownership should mean ability to pass down to children and grandchildren. Ownership should also be protected in such cases where someone is hacked, maybe their metamask was taken, and can prove such, there should be some way to get the ENS name back to the owner. Also if court order demands something, ENS must be able to fulfil the terms of the order such as taking back illegally stolen names.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree with comment above
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I founded and have run a network security company for 32 years: NH&A, LLC (nha.com). I was early adopter in May 2017 of ENS and helped a number of users with registering or recovering their ENS name. I have no programming skills whatsover but I can help with understanding the overall picture of what needs to get done, help improve the GUI user interface and use common sense from 77 years experience :slight_smile: I am a grandfather, fisherman, private pilot, husband, diver, professional engineer, bachelor of engineering science, MSEE, an Ethereum miner and a nerd.

ENS name: nissa.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
My interests lie in building and supporting organizations that pave a way for more autonomy and sovereignty for individuals. ENS is a foundational piece of Web3, and is building a world where individuals can have more ownership. How ENS has structured and implemented their governance is going to be an example to Web3 organizations yet to come. I would like to use my knowledge and experience of Web3 and governance to support the good work ENS is doing, and support the Web3 community as a whole. I will leverage my Web2 experience in public policy and lobbying to continue to push forward the values of web3 and ENS in topics including ownership and net neutrality.

ENS name: Cryptogate.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I have been been aware of crypto since early 2012 and have since aped in early 2020 with my wife. With my continued frustration with the gross spending and printing of money, I have not only favored crypto and blockchain as a superior form of transaction just our currency but as a technology that will disrupt every sector of life as we know it over the next 10 years. I have am a firm supporter of nearly all decentralized efforts.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree , this is reasonable.
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree , I have no problem with supply the DAO with an incentivized mechanism.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree , the ability to allocate funds to outside projects, scholarships, no profit entities or etc.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Disagree , I don’t think ENS should grant control to top-level domains to their due to their legacy of being registered on the DNS 1st. These entities had the opportunity already to adopt new innovations with the DNS and now with the ENS system new users/new blood must now forfeit these opportunities to these “Veterans”. I think 1st come 1st serve is best. I understand for the ease of integration and global adoption that we want ENS to be fluid with the DNS authority however, DNS may not be the superior authority moving forward.

My web3 qualifications / skills : Well versed in the blockchain and crypto space and terminology. Understands the meta, nft, DEFI, CEX, DEX, staking, and the importance of GM.

ENS name: schuppi.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: While I am excited about the move towards being a DAO, I have already seen that voter apathy can be a huge problem going forward. I am happy ENS is starting with delegation right away - it helped MakerDAO tremendously. I have a solid background on pre-web3.0 internet and think we should push forward working together with e.g. ICANN to increase our footprint. We won’t have a revolution without integrating with the legacy internet.
