My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: To help shape the future of web3 by participating in the governance of a cornerstone product in the space.
My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution
Name ownership shall not be infringed: Agree - As long as there is a warning period and potentially also an option for refund if the changes affect the operation someone had in place when originally purchasing the domain under the old rules.
Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: Disagree (with current wording) - What is a “reasonable” level of operation? Should limits be put in place before the protocol grows even further? I do not disagree with the ability to change the fee amount/structure, but I think its worth considering the potential for abuse with the current wording. I think there also needs to be a minimum warning time before such changes are enacted, so that people have plenty of time to prepare (maybe 3 months?).
Income funds ENS and other public goods: Disagree - To me this feels like its open for Cronyism. With a 1 token 1 vote system, whales over time will gain more and more power and sway, but even without the tokens based voting issues there may be people in the DAO with more social sway then others, either of these two groups could manipulate article 3 to their advantage, funding their friends projects. If there is any question about the long term lifespan of the ENS protocol (as suggested in article 2), then maybe allocating grants to things outside of ENS is not a good idea? What happens if ENS treasury funds a non-ENS related protocol but then years later the bear market hits and the protocol is forced to raise fees? Is the funding of non-ENS projects worth risking the long term life of ENS? Instead of grants, what if the ENS DAO was to invest in other public goods in return for tokens which it could add to the treasury, and sell if needed instead of raising fees?
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: Agree *- This is very useful to onboard web2 entities. *
