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:
Governance only works if those in charge of voting are informed and invested. With Velodrome being the second largest AMM on OP, I believe that I am more invested in the long-term success of Optimism than most people.
I have staked my entire web3 reputation on exposing bad actors and lifting up good projects. I live in this ecosystem full time, 24/7, and am ready to help shape Optimism into the best L2 it can possibly be.
My view on the Optimistic Vision 112:
“The Optimism Collective will dispel the myth that public goods cannot be profitable.”
I have been saying this for a very long time. Public goods can take many shapes and sizes, and through retroactive public good’s funding they can be profitable and investable by Angels and VCs.
The weak link in all of this is us, and that’s why I would like to be trusted as a delegate to vote on behalf of OP holders. If we are too tight or too loose in what we fund today, we can destroy this experiment before it even has a chance to gain traction.
I want to help steer OP funding towards the most projects that will do real good both for the OP ecosystem but also the world at large.
My views on the first three articles of the Working Constitution:
This is a “Working” Constitution.
All successful forms of government should be fluid and ever evolving. But what OP needs right now is a set of “founding Anons” to help not only steer the creation of this living document but also protect it from corrupting forces.
OP Citizens and OP Holders will equally coexist within the Collective.
This is the most innovative part of the OP governance structure and one that I am most excited to see play out in the long term. I also believe that this structure will allow us to balance short-term incentives with its long-term vision. And I hope to help shape how Citizens are chosen to represent their side of the government.
The Optimism Foundation will be a steward of the Optimism Collective and its early governance model
One reason to have delegates over the traditional model of governance is to ensure that we lean towards long-term growth vs. short term thinking. The overall mission of the Collective is lofty, and quite frankly, difficult. With the right people in place, I believe we can both listen to, and help educate the crowd towards creating true public goods.
