I have read and understood the Delegate Commitment Process: :white_check_mark:

I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment: :white_check_mark:

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: My dedication to and interest in rollups as well as Optimism in particular is probably best detailed in this presentation at the Modular Summit 2022. Watching discussions unfold around turning OP into a gas token suggest to me that I should volunteer to help steward Optimism towards long-term oriented goals. I’ve been expecting rollup governance tokens for a long time, I care a great deal about their success and I frequently talk about how important rollups are for true DeFi scalability. I’d rather be a delegate than complain from the sidelines that Ethereum and Optimism’s long-term interests are not being carefully understood and respected.

My view on the Optimistic Vision: At the 13 minute mark the video above I talk about my appreciation for Optimism’s dedication to Retroactive Public Goods Funding.

My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution: I believe in governance minimization. Rollups have the interesting quality that the fundamental security can be inherited from the L1, and I believe that we should strive towards those goals as much as possible and not diffuse that quality by allowing aggressive and haphazard L2 governance. I believe that a bicarmetal voting structure is in alignment with that goal.

I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment: Yes

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: As the upcoming PoS for Ethereum will almost not improve scalability nor reduce fees and as the beacon chain is still far from now, rollups like Optimism are the near future of Ethereum and a way to make the Ethereum network like a public good. I believe that Optimism can be a long term solution, bringing Ethereum the public goods layer.

My view on the Optimistic Vision: I think that this is the most optimistic try to bring a real balance between profit of short term user and a sustainable long term vision. I believe that the public goods vision is fundamentals for a fair and futureproof digital society.

My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution: I agree with the decentralized governance and the foundation approach, I believe that the creation of Citizens can mitigate the usual dumping of airdroped tokens. I really feel that Optimism can create a long term sustainable public good layer to Ethereum.

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: If the crypto space expects to see mass-adoption in the future, then there needs to be representation for those who are less “tech-savvy. “ Nuances of the crypto space are not always intuitive or second-nature to a lot of users. I would like an opportunity to represent those OP Citizens who traditionally, haven’t been early-adopters of new technology. Thank you for taking the time to read my Delegate Comment.

My view on the [Optimistic Vision 91 I agree that a “symbiotic-altruism” can come from the vision; impact = profit.

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

1: The “four year” construction makes sense. It’s like a “Beta constitution” in a safe-space where experimentation and resultant failures are all expected parts of the process. (Having said that, four years feels like a long test period).

2:&3: The bicameral system, appears to be a “tricameral” system with the OP Holders, OP Citizens and the OP Foundation, forming the third branch. Having a built-in tie-breaker in governance, can be positive and should be something to consider retaining, even if the OP Foundation chooses to take a less active role in the future.

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.

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: As a delegate, I wish to uphold ethical, constructive values that encourage positive growth for Ethereum and the Optimism network.

My values are in direct alignment with the core values of the Ethereum foundation and Optimism collective.

My view on the Optimistic Vision 97:

I believe that the Optimistic Vision 97 is a forerunner to a stable and ethical moral standard for the development of public goods. It’s in my belief that the Web3 industry needs positive and morally aligned individuals seeking for Ethereum to grow as strong as their project. (When built on top or alongside)

Public goods do not have to suffer from a lack of funding and support— regarding research, development and sustainability. In fact, we have moral obligations as a society to reinforce and finance their operations to ensure the future citizens of our world have access to basic necessities and new technological advances. We have the ability to ensure that public goods have sustainable business models and active supporters. That way, they last good and long instead of great and short.

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

  1. I heavily believe in the first article. People need to embrace ‘Shoshin’ or the beginners mind. The ability to freely experiment toward ‘impossible’ concepts creates real innovation.

  2. The dual governing method is very intriguing to me. I’ve spent time modelling a dual governance system, and I think there is room to innovate and expand this concept.

  3. It makes sense that the Optimism Collective will become more decentralized over time as nothing gets decentralized without a starting point. The Optimism Foundation should get welcomed from this standpoint.

My Web3 interests:

a) The OG Cypherpunk ideology— cryptoanarchism. A focus on privacy, sovereign identity, political, and economic freedoms. (As proposed by Tim May)

b) Decentralized systems, projects and concepts.

c) On-chain credentials and proof of work in the form of on-chain reputation.

I have read and understood the Delegate Commitment Process: Yes, I read it and I understand.

I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment: Yes, I understand

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: Governance, voting and the separation of powers have always been keen interests of mine. This is a rare moment where one can make a difference in a powerful decentralized, technological and social movement and I’d love to use my skillsets to help navigate the waters ahead. I believe that Optimism has a powerful mission and a great culture surrounding their team and the wider community.

My view on the Optimistic Vision : I love the use of first principles thinking to embody core values into the essence of the protocols and social layers. Utilizing free markets to enhance the value of public goods is a brilliant idea and the end goal of serving basic human needs as a built-in feature of an economy is something that I’ve strived towards as an individual. I love the optimism!

My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution: It’s refreshing to see a governance that starts from a position of humility and is relatively flexible early on. Similar to other two-token models I believe that governance also requires a “modular” approach :wink: . I also agree with a formal tried and tested governance model initially which will then better coordinate the path towards a functioning decentralised model.

I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment: yes

My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I want to be a delegate because I strongly believe that networks like this will be the future of how people work together around the world. My friends and I have already started creating DAOs and sent not only mainnet native tokens but atl tokens to each other to make promises and transfer value. I would like to be a delegate because I would like to be a part of what makes blockchain technology an equitable and inclusive environment where everyone can take part in its evolution for the betterment of the collective.

My view on the Optimistic Vision 99: One thing that I like about the Optimistic Vision is it starts from a place of empathy, and I’m interested in studying the impact=profit paradigm closely. I also believe just like in this vision document that now is the right time to start building a system that merges the physical world and the digital world because at this present moment our (i.e., humanity’s) currently financial, and societal system are not equipped to handle this convergence properly. Therefore, we need to start creating systems that not only tie these worlds together, but the foundational focus should have the betterment of all people as its core.

My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution: Article one, spoke about the unsustainability of a fixed model governmental system. Having a commitment to experimentation of the system is very important because to solve problems a scientific approach is necessary. Also, having a transitory document will allow us to evaluate the impacts of past actions so that better improvements and alignment to principles of the collective is possible. Article two having a fair and balance check and balancing system intent is to keep the interest of the collection in harmony with the Optimistic Vision. This system should always be is balance and coexist equally within the collective. Article three, as the collective grows the interest of the foundation should change and move toward decentralization decreasing the need for a managing board which is centralized in nature.
