**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 have been interested in Optimistic for a long time and have been translating and writing about it in Chinese since 2020 (published on the DAppChaser website). Currently, an on-chain gaming builder DAO I organized is deploying our governance voting contract on OP, implementing an experiment where all contribution actions are quantified as voting weights. I would love to participate in the governance of the whole ecosystem at the same time to move forward together.
My view on the Optimistic Vision 64:
Although Web3 is more friendly to public goods, language barriers and some inherent biases have kept many non-native English-speaking public goods builders being ignored.
I’ve been working with my partners on this since 2018, writing many articles and making appeals on social media for people to pay more attention to Web3 open source developers in non-native English speaking regions, especially in countries where the laws are not Web3 friendly. Some Web3 contributors are considered as illegals in their home countries. Many of them have to leave their country and become digital nomads to continue their Web3 careers.
I hope that Optimism can help. And this is why I come here.
My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution:
1. This is a “Working” Constitution.
As Mao Zedong said, the future is bright, the road is winding. If we agree that Web3 is a new revolution, we should be willing to experiment with it.
2. OP Citizens and OP Holders will equally coexist within the Collective.
I think the bicameral governance system will work, but the process will definitely not be smooth.
People’s contributions to a Web ecosystem are diverse, and we should respect this diversity and develop governance solutions that are consistent with it.
I found that Velodrome Finance uses two tokens to manage its utility and governance: a ERC-20 unility token called $VELO and a ERC-721 governance token called $veVELO. But this is still too simple.
As I see, the non-transferable ERC1155 might be a better option, you can use this to quantify each kind of contribution and assign voting weights to it. At the same time, you can also airdrop the ERC-20 tokens that can be traded to its owner. For some non-permanent contribution behaviours, such as early transactions and transfers on the network, the contributions will not exist as ERC1155 and will simply be redeemed for ERC-20 tokens. This is the better option I can think of, and the governance experiment MarrowDAO is currently working on.
3. The Optimism Foundation will be a steward of the Optimism Collective and its early governance model.
Agree. Premature decentralization means the decentralisation of responsibility, and in the early stages we need an organisation that upholds the spirit of decentralization to take responsibility and to better deal with the problems that come from reality.
