ENS DAO Delegate Applications

Norman Hirsch (nhirsch.eth)

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
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: 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.

Thank you and look forward to being considered :slight_smile:

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.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am well versed in the NFT space and on Crypto Twitter. I have been actively trading, consulting, and interacting since May 2021. I was also recently a Growth PM at NEAR Protocol until I decided to pursue NFTs and consulting full-time under Non-Fungible Consulting, LLC. I am very comfortable interacting with solidity contracts via etherscan and I look forward to integrating ENS Domains to L2s, such as IMX and Arbitrum. Along with being a part of many impactful communities, I also have a sizable following on Twitter (6.3k) to help spread our message and increase awareness of ENS and Web3.

ENS name: brutoshi.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

I am a true believer of decentralization and community, as I first read bitcoin white paper in 2013, and joined Ethereum community in 2016. ENS is one of the foundation components of Web3 stack. While I’m excited ENS has come a long way to deliver one of the best crypto products today, there are still some major pain points preventing average users from using it smoothly. I believe I can represent the ENS community and be a strong advocate for average users interests.

How incredible to see this new development in the ENS Ecosystem!

I @ nettra.eth and I see ENS as critical for efficient, equitable and enjoyable interactions in Web3 going forward.

What is great about Web3 is the ability for individuals to truly own their assets. Beyond financial assets, what is critical for p2p interaction is a clear, yet flexible identity protocol. ENS offers an invaluable service to the Web3 community. Having accessible, effective and prestigious pseudonymous identifiers will be critical to our interactions going forward.

These are my stances on the following points.

AGREE: # I. Name ownership shall not be infringed

Web3 marks a break from Web2 practices. Big Tech and even well-meaning governments try to impose some standardized link between IRL and URL identifiers. I believe that choice and design of ENS names and ENS domains shoudl be up to the individual. We need to continue to protect this choice and this right to our digital property/asset. It is essential that ENS defends this accessible, equitable public service and resists against purely profit-motivated identifiers.

AGREE: # II. Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism

We see this in Web2 and in some low-gas Web3 protocols. No fee leads to more noise and spam. ENS should continue to collect fees to guide the right kind of behaviors that we want to see on the platform. ENS should also be willing to reconsider their fee structure to enable the kinds of behaviors we want to see going forward. We may also want to (very carefully!) consider scholarship programs or their equivalent when necessary. That is what I understand with this phrasing “incentive mechanism”- that is tied to the behavior we want to see (more optimal); not a way to make our overall experience in Web3 less optimal. This is critical for ENS to pioneer as we have seen many Web2 (and even some Web3) companies become distracted by non-essential revenue streams and forget their key purpose.

AGREE: # III. Income funds ENS and other public goods

ENS understands what they do well and carefully considers any new additional services and features. I believe that this is the way. It would also be helpful to have an innovation/R&D/experimental set of activities that are funded by ENS in the spirit of developing necessary public goods. I am grateful for ENS’ leadership in this space as we strive towards slaying Moloch.

AGREE: # IV. ENS Integrates with the global namespace

Despite ENS’ great leadership in this space, it does not act alone and it is also not the oldest identifying system. This last point is critical in the ENS constitution because it prevents us from becoming too tunnel focused on ENS’s dominance (read: “ENS maxi”). As a public good provider, ENS must believe in a pluralistic world where different identifiers will exist. The goal of ENS is not to dominate the space but to improve the space as much as possible. If an existing protocol exists, it behooves ENS and the entire community to respect interoperability, rather than to refuse to cooperate. I particularly like this clause and agree with it wholeheartedly.

AGREE: # V. Amendments to this constitution by majority vote

Our community will evolve, as will the Web3 space. As forward-thinking as these clauses are; we may have forgotten something. This last clause is critical to ensure that the community has a way to alert builders on anything that they have overlooked/may be overlooking as we continue to create in this space.

My Web-3 Qualifications

  • I understand the process through which new technology is commercialized is funded. I understand the threats that different revenue models and market pressures pose to community-driven goals.

It is my day job, received my PhD from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and teach at Bayes Business School currently
I have supported different (crypto) ventures and venture accelerator programs, acting as a director and advisor (for startup), judge (for startup competitions) j

  • I am excited about the possibility of Web3 to help us rebuild industries the way they should have been built the first time: that is, with inclusion and diversity as a key element.

In order to achieve the above, I hosted 19 consecutive episodes of Crypto Beyond Currency interviewing a pioneer in the crypto space (including Makoto Inoue/ENS, Jiho Zirlin/Axie, Jehan Chu/Kenetic, Alexandra Berto-Gilles/Aave and others).
I am currently working on my next thing, but you can see resources collected so far at crypto.nettra.club and cryptobeyondcurrency.club.
