ENS DAO Delegate Applications

ENS name: she256.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
she256 started almost 4 years ago, with the mission to increase diversity in the crypto space. We fundamentally believe that blockchain technology will shape our future financial and governance structures, and as such it’s crucial that those building these systems are representative of the global, diverse population which they intend to serve.

We are active users of ENS’s core product, and are huge believers of how it unlocks exponential potential for decentralized identity and on-chain reputation. We hope that by delegating your votes to us, we are able to reflect our values, and our community’s mission, to the broader ENS community.

We believe we can be neutral governance participants who will represent the interests of our communities of allies, and underrepresented folks in crypto. By delegating to us, you’ll be an ally to our cause. Thank you!

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)
Agreed.

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)
Disagree.

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)
Agree.

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)
Agree.

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.

My qualifications / skills:

• I’m a professional python developer who is enthusiastic about Web3, with basic skills in Solidity.
• Experience in Ethereum Dapps policy and Crypto Eco lobbying.

My web3 qualifications / skills: I am a researcher that works in blockchain for a living.

I know about software architecture, but Ethereum is so big that it is hard to define my “qualifications”. In any case, I will do my best guys, I promise.

ENS name: nathgilson.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: Move ENS forward and support the community. I believe ENS is one of the best DAO to decentralise the domain name services.

My web3 qualifications / skills: Solidity / full stack developer, currently working on sub.support, a tool for DAO’s governance.

ENS name: angelfish.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

If ENS is to achieve universal adoption, it must be magnitudes cheaper to register a name and use (e.g. to set your reverse record).

To facilitate a fast and safe transition of ENS to Layer 2 and other scaling solutions, ENS DAO needs a delegate that is deeply knowledgeable about not only the mechanics but also the security and decentralization guarantees of the myriad of different scaling and bridge solutions. And secondly, a delegate that possesses the writing skills to clearly communicate the risks and progress of the scaling effort.

My capacity to do both is demonstrated through my role as Product and Ecosystem Lead at Matter Labs, the team building the first EVM-Compatible ZK Rollup: zkSync, and my skills can be verified in the section below.

As projects that seek to extend the Ethereum ethos of fairness, inclusion, and resilience, ENS and Matter Labs share substantial value alignment in our commitment to open source and community ownership.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
CyberConnect is here to build a decentralized social graph protocol that serves Web3 social networks and the metaverse. We’d like to become a ENS delegate to contribute our best effort to make Web3.0 a better palce.

My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution

  • Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    AGREED. In my opinion, Web3.0 is all about ownership that everyone should have sovereignty to his/her own virtual identity. This is especially true when it comes to the upcoming Metaverse.
  • Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Being a core component of web3, ENS should be available to most people while having a fee structure decided by the ENS DAO. The community will balance how ENS should be a public good while being sustainable in the long run.
  • Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    Again, this should be a long-term discussion within the ENS DAO.
  • ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment)
    As an infrastructure provider on Web3.0, we believe that ENS is so significant in terms of being the golden standard of name service. We don’t know how exactly will web 3.0 look like, but it’s definitely important to integrate it into the current landscape of the namespace.
    My web3 qualifications / skills:
    Extensive techniques in development. Web3.0 and DAO native organization.

ENS name:greenfinance.eth

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
ENS is the most likely future for digital identity and verification. It’s a major step forward from web2 ideas of identity and ownership and for that reason, I believe it should be open, transparent and fair for all current and future users. I believe it can be surpass the ubiquity of email and thus it is important to govern and create policies that are purely in benefit for users and not for profit.
