ENS name: da☯️.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree. Though the distribution of names may not be fully fair (e.g. Squatters do exist), the harm done by infringing on ownership rights would far outweigh the benefits. The ability for ENS users to trust that their ownership of domain names is an absolute right, is invaluable.
Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Agree - I think the primary barrier to ens domain registration is Ethereum transaction costs. Including small fees should be no problem for the majority of domains, and larger fees absolutely make sense for in demand and short domain names, as high net worth individuals can afford these.
Income funds ENS and other public goods: Agree. Of course Income should be used to fund ENS. That just makes sense. Funding public goods is also important, as ENS is an infrastructure project, and generally depends on other public infrastructure to thrive and succeed.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree - Ask for forgiveness, not permission, enable other Top Level Domains and grant ownership to those TLD owners on request. This is excellent for growth, and I don’t see that there is much in the way of legitimate grievances from other DNS holders
My web3 qualifications / skills:
I am an experienced Ethereum Developer, having started in 2016, and manage a web3 development community since 2017,called Block Devs United (https://bdu.dev). I have programmed hundreds of dApps, and am experienced with integrating ENS into dApps. I rarely act alone, but with the backing of our community of Blockchain developers, and rely heavily on their skills wherever mine are lacking. I have also participated in a dozen blockchain hackathons or so, and won lots of prizes!
