I have read and understood the Delegate Commitment Process: Yes.
I understand that becoming a delegate is a significant commitment: Yes, that’s why we founded a specialized company. We focus on governance, ecosystem building & tools around top Web 3 projects.
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: We realized the same governance issues, tribalism, short-termism, replication of tech/mistakes, intransparency over and over since joining crypto. We started blockchain-comparison.com to spread quality information and onboard people to crypto. Now, we take this one step further with scaleweb3.com, defend the most value-aligned, value-adding, essential Web 3 building blocks and help them grow.
Sidenote: Personally, I see Ethereum as the center and settlement layer of Web 3 and Optimism as a fundamental building block in our envisioned Web 3 stack. The Ethereum ecosystem has quality contributors, some positive-sum, value-aligned projects such as Uniswap and Gitcoin and I would love to become a governance steward that further supports the values with best interests of projects and token/stakeholders in mind.
My view on the Optimistic Vision : I see many parallels to our own ambitions when we started blockchain-comparison.com in 2018. The mentioned comparison between blockchain ecosystems and new economies is somewhat flawed but we also think it’s essential in Web 3 to find key stakeholders early-on which are able to unlock network effects, a sustainable growth of the ecosystem - based on real economic growth - with aligned values (!). Besides that, I was positively surprised to see “impact = profit” as almost all social/public goods should at least be sustainable and I am all in into proving that public goods can capture margins and be positive sum for all value-adding OR benefitting, consuming stakeholders.
My view on the first three articles of the Working Constitution: The title is spot-on. You don’t build a complex system from scratch, you rather go there iteratively. I believe in progressive decentralization, think it’s absolutely fair for a core team to take the majority of key decisions early-on but I will definitely work towards a future with core protocols which are hardened, secure, trust-minimized, governance-minimized, yet community-owned.
