I have read and understood the Delegate Commitment Process:
I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment:
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.
