Verification (Tally profile or tweet):

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:

everybody wants a governance token but nobody wants to govern. I want to do what I can to change this.

As a researcher, I believe that rollups are the best way to securely scale blockchains without compromises. Optimism isn’t just a classification of rollup, it’s a mindset and worldview.

My view on the Optimistic Vision:

Public goods are a necessity and perpetually underfunded. I am a strong believer in the fact that Optimism has the opportunity to change this, and would like to do what I can to make sure the funding goes to where it is needed most.

My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution:

  1. Fair, I believe experimentation and flexibility is important, especially during the setup phase.
  2. Incredibly interesting idea, very curious to see how it works in practice.
  3. Understandable, especially in this phase. I would like to see it eventually dissolved when/if it is no longer needed.
