I have read and understood the Delegate Commitment Process: Yes
I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment: Yes
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I’ve been yearning to participate more in the emerging blockchain & web3 space and contribute thoughts and ideas to projects while learning from a community of peers.
My view on the Optimistic Vision: The vision is a great 1st step/take in creating a tangible framework around public goods. I think it will be crucial when it comes to impact that the system isn’t gamed in a manner in which an individual is doing both positive and negative actions in relation to public goods. For example, externally having a positive impact but as an individual with lesser impact internally doing negative actions. Figuring out the weight distribution between the 2 may help truly measure impact both externally/internally to a reasonable extent without being too internally invasive. Lastly since some public goods are finite (minerals, natural resources) profitability may not be the best approach for these goods and finding a different w to frame and incentive the sustainability of them will be important.
My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution: I believe constitutions should have core tenants that form the root over time with branches growing and withering to the whims of time. I feel there’s a fear with long lived tenants due to the examples of modern constitutions that have swayed away from the original intent or become murky to translate to the present. I believe with web3 this can be solved due to the immutability/transparency of blockchains along with the fact this constitution isn’t being created in a closed mainly monoculture room but within. an open ecosystem. I think it will be key to identify the core aspects of optimism and how they can be governed & grow autonomously by those heavily interested within that segment. I think roles should be more ephemeral with terms similar to our current government system but be a mix of voting and merit and a cap on term limits and future roles.
My Web3 interests: Environment, Identity, Infrastructure, Music, Zero Knowledge
