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:
Wildfire is a new initiative spun out of _:fire: (Fire Eyes DAO) which aims to provide highly aligned, informed, and engaged governance for communities and systems across the Ethereum space.
We believe that Optimism represents an important public good within the Ethereum ecosystem and as such, must be governed in a careful and considered manner. Wildfire and _:fire: have made thoughtful and effective contributions to many governance systems including ENS and Gitcoin. We are excited to bring this context and experience to OP governance.
My view on the Optimistic Vision:
Wholeheartedly agree. The OP vision is the vision of Ethereum; fostering a layer two ecosystem which is value-aligned with Ethereum and the ethos of public goods is of utmost importance. Wildfire believes that Optimism is the L2 which has both the technical and directional capacity to provide the much needed scalability to the Web3 community.
My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution:
1. "This is a “Working” Constitution"
Wildfire believes that taking the first step of governance by establishing a working constitution is not just prudent, but necessary. Good governance requires flexibility and forethought, especially when it comes to a nascent space such as ours.
A commitment to experimentation also means a commitment to improvement, and we at Wildfire agree wholeheartedly with this approach.
Finally, the four-year limit on the working constitution also demonstrates a thoughtful beginning for the Collective, by enabling a regular review of decision-making power and how it flows in the Optimism Collective. Wildfire fully concurs.
2. "OP Citizens and OP Holders will equally coexist within the Collective."
If Optimism Collective wants to accomplish the task of retroactively funding public goods and driving sustainable growth in the decentralized ecosystem, it is critical that its government does not become a tokenized plutocracy.
We strongly support the fact that Optimism has proposed a governance model that aims for equality and for putting checks and balances in place for the different bodies involved in decision making. _:fire: and Wildfire are excited to play a roll in both sides of the Optimism Collective.
3. "The Optimism Foundation will be a steward of the Optimism Collective and its early governance model."
At Wildfire, we are confident that the Optimism Foundation will protect the interests of the ecosystem when it has to be involved in decision making.
