Choose a mission statement that clearly states why the ENS DAO exists and who it serves. A powerful mission statement aligns with the efforts of the people who work on the DAO’s behalf.
A great mission statement functions as a lightning rod of meaning for folks working on behalf of an organization. With the creation of ENS DAO, the number of contributors has increased and will continue to do so. A powerful mission statement will align the efforts of all involved. Ideally, it inspires more folks to get involved and keeps them aligned.
Over the past two months, we have held several calls generating community involvement and discussions to craft a mission statement. Through this process, we narrowed down the rhetoric and identified recurring key terms such as “self-sovereign,” “public good,” and “digital identities,” that help define the Ethereum Name Service.
This proposal requests that DAO conducts a snapshot vote for a mission statement from the choices below:
Our mission is to empower web3 citizens to interact easily with people, organizations, and smart contracts through self-sovereign identities.
Our mission is to provide all people absolute ownership of their digital identity as a public good.
None of the above
The vote will occur over 3 days, beginning on January 10, 2022 and ending on January 12, 2022. The statement with the most votes will become the official mission statement of the Ethereum Name Service. If none of the above is selected, we go back to the drawing board.
