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 want to see “web3’’ continue to be something really transformative and not just fade into legacy traps because of greed and centralization easy mode. I really appreciate how Optimism is using technology for positive social impact, putting purpose and not just profit front and center and fostering public goods development for the long term benefit of everyone. This is refreshing and equally reassuring at this point in the crypto adoption cycle.
I’ve contributed to MakerDAO’s mission since 2018, being part of the Foundation team and now (after being part of the Foundations dissolution) a contributor to the DAO on the Maker Growth Core Unit. I believe it’s incredibly important that everyone has the optionality into DeFi. Affordable and secure transactions are key to bring decentralized services to people everywhere.This is why I want to participate in Optimism.
My view on the Optimistic Vision 9:
Building public goods funding and creation into the mechanism design of Optimism and by default Ethereum, gives us the best chance to create a system that inherently gives back to its users in a net positive way. Intentionality creates positive momentum and incentives help keep that momentum. I’m all for reshaping behavior in this area!
My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution:
- This is an honest and realistic design approach. New models need time to be tested and emerge from theory to practice. It’s not easy stuff.
- Having two key focus areas to orient action and decision making seems like a logical way to avoid distractions and minimize inefficiencies.
- Like anything in its infancy, having guidance from a Foundation and dedicated “caretakers” is crucial to create the right frameworks for the Collective to operate in and eventually become self-sustaining (“fly from the’'nest”)
