We had a great turnout for our first brainstorming session. People across the globe participated in the discussion. As the session progressed we developed clarity on what a mission statement is and what it isn’t.
A good mission statement answers the following questions:
- Why does ENS exists?
- Who does ENS serve?
- How does it serve them?
The emerging perspective of the group is that a mission statement is more to rally the troops than a marketing slogan for future users.
With that preamble out of the way, here are a few mission statements that we came up with as group. There were about 2x more discussed, I’m choosing to highlight all the statements that had at least one +1.
To provide a truly unique, human-readable identity across all of web3.
To create the future of online identity, for everything.
Enable people to work, play, and organize using decentralized, censorship-resistant tools that require no permission
The mission of ENS is to connect identities consistently to make the internet easier and more accessible for everyone
Your name for the future of the internet
To provide complete ownership of identity as a public good for all - across the web and beyond.
Map human-readable names to machine-readable identifiers from across the web
Lead the way to an accessible web3, where everyone can easily interact with DApps, DAOs, and smart contracts.
The global empowerment of people, organizations, and smart contracts through continued development of a decentralized, human-readable naming standard as a global public good.
For those who weren’t able to participate, here’s your chance to add a few more options by replying to this thread.
We will also hold another session next week at a more eastern hemisphere friendly time.
