ENS name: trunzo.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I came of age in web1. As a teenager posting on AOL’s Final Fantasy message boards, we were a DAO without a token or treasury: community-governed, open debate, shipped products in the form of fan fiction and even a text-based RPG, hosted meetups, shared alpha – and the list goes on. For over 25 years, then, I’ve been primed to contribute mightily to a decentralized organization! To boot, I am (1) a current DAO contributor, most notably at the culture hub $FWB, (2) a web3 and metaverse strategist through my advisory firm Burrata (burrata.io), (3) a financial regulatory attorney who has worked at one of the world’s premier. white shoe corporate firms, Cadwalader and (4) a futurologist who has been giving presentations to the c-suite of multi-national legacy institutions on the EVM, NFTs, play to earn, sovereign identity tools and many other blockchain issues since early 2017. One could say “I’ve been around the block,” and I believe this vast and unique set of skills make me an especially notable candidate as an ENS delegate.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - Minor comment here is that as long as issues related to ownership rights are freely and openly discussed and fairly voted upon, I believe the spirit of this section is strong and will work to uphold it at all costs.
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) - As with blockchains more generally, fees and associated costs are a primary mechanism to prevent spam. I am in favor of this provision but would like to figure out a way to bring fees down over time to a. level of “minimally viable fee issuance that still prevents spam but invites wider user.” That’s a mouthful, I know! And at a minimum, I think it would be important for ENS to eventually explore rollups, particularly of the ZK variety, and live on its own shard once the roadmap to Eth2 is complete.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)

My web3 qualifications / skills: I have been an active evangelist, investor and strategist in the web3 space since early 2017. Indeed, the moment I first heard of Ethereum, it was as if I had an out of body experience: everything I was hearing, I had heard before and knew to be true – I could finish the sentences of the person who was speaking to me. Since then, on the legal side, I went on to contribute to America’s longest continuously operated law firm, Cadwalader, as a blockchain advisor as well as to the Brooklyn Project, Cardozo Law School’s pre-DAO Telegram group (kind of became “The LAO”) that helped lay the framework to structuring token launches that do not run afoul of the US’s securities laws (still an issue, obviously there’s work to be done!). On the culture side, I have (1) worked with consumer brands like Levi’s to develop NFT strategies and understand the inner-workings of web3 communities, (2) lived in metaverses like Decentraland (name’s “tyrell” – send me a friend request, I’m on nightly!), (3) contributed to discourse at the leading culture DAO, $FWB and (4) started a DAO of my own, vroomDAO ($VROOM – liquidity coming soon) and thus am a “in-the-weeds” expert on the operational side of DAOs.

Thank you for reading my lengthy proposal. I’d have made “Vote for Tyrell” wearables in Decentraland…actually, I might still do that!

ENS name: nisreen.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
I think ENS is an exceptional project and is one of the truer public goods that exists today. I see it as infrastructure or the first layer/ catalyst of someone’s journey into web3. I’d like to advance it further as best as I can. ENS will be the first project I’d apply as a delegate for so excited to focus on it.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

Name ownership shall not be infringed:
Agree.
Anyone has the right to a name that represents their digital identity. There should be no restrictions on this for the most part. There may be nuanced exceptions where the community decides if there is an instance where someone is posing some sort of criminal risk.

Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism:
Kinda Agree
I think it is an incentive mechanism as well as a growth mechanism. ENS should have sufficient reserve capital for unseen events as well as to grow the ecosystem and develop beyond itself. Fees also should enable security and longevity.

Income funds ENS and other public goods:
Agree.
ENS funds should prioritize ENS itself and other public good that strengthen its own good as well as the spaces it protects/enables.

ENS Integrates with the global namespace:
Kinds Agree
There is more work to be done around adoption and integrating ENS to all of web3 and what web3 could be. I think it could be the global namespace standard with the help of the DAO.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am currently core team at sherlock.xyz working on all things community, marketing, and governance

Things I a am good at are: actively seeking multiple perspectives, robust thinking and this need to want to dig deeper into assumptions/ideas, good at organizing and finding/ creating opportunities for others, making concepts easy to understand for others. I’d say most of my robust thinking comes into play around behavior, incentive models, organizational design, and communication in web3.

I try to keep my focus narrow in terms of all the things I am involved with so that I can have the most impact across a few things. Aside from Sherlock, I am active in emoDAO - very new DAO around research and discourse around emotions and behaviors in web3.

ENS name: erichu.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: If Ethereum is to play a significant role in a blockchain or multi-chain future, then ENS serves as a necessary if not crucial component to bringing a legibility, meaning, and identity layer to ecosystem. The timing for the decentralization of ENS governance couldn’t have come at a better time from both a technical (as Post-merge and future upgrades will have an effect on address types and their capabilities) and cultural perspective towards mass adoption. Serving as a gateway for millions into Web3, it’s imperative that ENS remains a public good. With this, I humbly support my application to be an ENS delegate and to represent the interests of the public, and especially those who also share in my background as an artist, designer, and creator in Web3 to keep ENS open without sacrificing scalability and robustness as the space compounds in user adoption.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree. It’s necessary for ENS to be people-first. Plain and simple. If ownership is relegated in any way this early in the process then we are merely perpetuating the inequalities and inequities of Web2.

  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Agree, registration fees are a necessary solution that address many potential areas of weakness and opportunities for growth. That being said, I would be interested in advocating for an exploration into avenues and initiatives that can help financially onboard or provide an alternative means of access to folks who are economically priced out of the space.

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

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

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am a designer, developer, and artist active in the Web3 space and in the process of transitioning the majority of his practice into helping people build in Web3. I come from both a visual design and technical background. As an early and active contributor to FWB, Mirror, and an NFT artist who has forked his own smart contracts and released NFTs this way as well as on platforms/protocols such as Foundation and Zora, I bring with me three things: 1. A cultural optimism for the possibilities of this technology to have far-reaching positives for our world, 2. A guarded concern that the utopian promises of this space are far from inevitable—their chances of becoming implausible are great and require the the intentional efforts of good people to help steer projects towards greater good, 3. A strong curiosity for the details, especially the technical. 4. A passion for consensus-driven community decisions. I believe these four qualities help provide a perspective of the bigger picture, and help equip me to be an advocate for the future of ENS and its users.

ENS name: vispre.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: Web3 is ushering an entirely new world of opportunities in the way of decentralizing industries across the globe. It is leveling the playing field in unprecedented ways, allowing people to control their own data, identity and more. It is the most exciting thing to happen in decades, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it in ways I already am. I’d like to deepen my involvement in ways that contribute to the ongoing efforts to decentralize the internet and its many services so that we have options for a more open and more free existence on the internet, where innovation is unbridled.

ENS name: worse1.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I see ENS becoming much more than it already is and would love to play a role in governance and community contribution. I have educated people across various social media platforms on why ENS is so important, and have also grew up with a web2 developer for a Father. I’ve been involved in DNS and web development for most of my professional life and recently got into Ethereum development in 2019

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree - As long as we stick to an outlined goal for increasing or reducing fees of extension, I believe we can maintain a fair governance and give equal opportunity to new registers and long time holders.

  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree - I agree that fees act as a crowd fund for the DAO and helps improve the network. Fees also deter speculative investors and hoarders of ENS names which helps promote fair ownership of ENS.

  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree - Funds should be allocated to community wallet and votes should be taken to ensure priority usage. Funding projects (or giving grants to start ups) unrelated to ENS should be allowed, as they can help advance Web3 as a whole. Development of the network and community ideas should be acted upon first.

  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Somewhat disagree - "ENS governance should grant control of a top-level domain to its owner in the DNS system on request."

I don’t really agree with this statement but I get the point behind it as long as we remain community driven and decentralized.

My web3 qualifications / skills:

My name is Worse. I have simple Solidity and JS development skills. I moderate a few discord channels and subreddits. I’ve been involved in the crypto space since 2016 and have taken advanced learning classes on blockchain since 2020. I also am an Electrician but have started to pursue a Web3 career instead.

I’m a community member, a dog daddy, and a passionate learner. Thank you for reading.
