ENS name: verifyAT.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
We will work hard to help promote and secure the success and growth of web3 as the future of ledger networking, on open, user owned, public goods protocols.
For this reason, protocols need delegates who believe in the merits of the system and its goals, who have the capacity to be involved, and who have the understanding of process and governance to carry the responsibility of those delegated votes.
We represent the overall goals of the ENS system on the basis of its principles rather than any short-term agenda that may be pursued by hostile network takeovers.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 7
• Name ownership is an absolute right: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
Everyone should have the right to buy and use an ENS name and there should not be restrictions ever enacted upon the use and exercise of that domain name, nor any changes that target specific holders. The only exceptions I could see existing would be in the case of anything that creates a risk to the system or stalls the growth of the platform.
• Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
While we agree that the primary goal of registrations fees is as an incentive, and that ENS should strictly be a non-profit public good, I do not think that such a harsh stance on income fees should be taken. A critical component of web3 infrastructure the DAO should not simply have the bare minimal revenue to maintain funding, but needs to have sufficient reserve capital for unseen and unexpected circumstances, as well as to remain competitive in attracting and retaining critical talent.
• Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
The Sustainability of ENS funds are wholly public goods. They should used to scale the infrastructure and key integrations may be merited when it encourages the adoption of ENS or helps preserve the health, security or longevity of the protocol. In any such case, the specific spending of those funds must solely be allocated to endeavors that represent and reinforce the values of ENS, should be publicly auditable
• ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
This is a critical long term component for the broader adoption of the .eth namespace and for web3 in general and that ENS is a valuable asset in the global namespace. We also agree with the view that ENS should not create new namespaces unless granted by DNS naming authorities. However, ENS should directly pursue this authority.
