Signaling intention to become a Badgeholder

A lot of people ask how they can become a badgeholder and I think some existing badgeholders do not know who to give the voting badge to. I’m opening this thread for anyone who wants to signal their intention to become a badgeholder.

I’m adding a format to keep it civilized and I ask everyone to keep it SHORT. This is introductory and if someone is interested will surely contact you.

Who are you?
Billy191, Support-NERDs and Ambassador of Optimism (Collective) :nerd_face:

Why do you want to become a badgeholder?
I stay in the Optimism since the governance is not born until the collective is built up, I saw many projects, educators, and builders that make a good impact on Optimism whether sharing a vibe in the Optimism collective or developing the ecosystem better and better, I would like to support those of them via a grant through RetroPGF process like good impact should be rewarded. As I ever am one of the recipients in previous RetroPFG rounds and might be the OG of Optimism, I want to share my perspective and opinion and expect that I would be beneficial to other badgeholders and the collective. :houses:

What are your areas of expertise?

  • DAO Governance / Web3 Space / Supporter :balance_scale:
  • Blockchain Education (especially about Optimism via Twitter) :teacher:
  • Web Developer (Frontend) (currently, I am making site about RetroPGF :red_circle:

Who are you?

Hello, I’m thinkDecade, a passionate advocate for decentralized systems and a believer in the power of community-driven initiatives.

Why do you want to become a badgeholder?

The badge is a solemn pledge for me. It is a pledge to uphold the values, ethos, and vision of this community, which strives to create a better-decentralized future. The badge is a torch, illuminating the path for others who share the same passion and curiosity for all the experiments happening with the collective, while also signifying the trust and responsibility bestowed upon its holder by the community. I aspire to be one of these torchbearers, ensuring that our collective journey is both purposeful and progressive.

I want to be a badge holder because I believe in the power of collaboration, innovation, and diversity that this community fosters. I want to be a part of this vibrant and dynamic network of DAO and web3 enthusiasts, experts, and learners who are constantly pushing the boundaries of governance and exploring new possibilities.

I want to be a badge holder because I have something to offer to this community: my skills, my knowledge, my creativity, and my relentless enthusiasm. I want to be a badge holder because I have something to learn from this community: new perspectives, new insights, new challenges, and new opportunities.

What are your areas of expertise?

  • Decentralized governance
  • DAO Operations
  • DAO onboarding
  • Community building, amplifying community voices, and fostering inclusivity.
  • Web3 project management (Curating and leading purpose-driven Web3 initiatives)

Who I Am
I’m Hiro, a writer and project champion at Bankless Publishing (RPGF #2 recipient :pray:), the publishing arm of BanklessDAO. I’ve wanted to participate in the Citizen’s House since I learned about it while writing an article on the Collective in June 2022. I’ve been active on Optimism since September 2021, and have written extensively about the Collective and its Vision. In addition to voting with my own OP tokens, I’m also active in DAOstewards, BanklessDAO’s meta-governance group.

Why I Want to Hold a Badge
There is no better place to be than Optimism for those interested in working in the web3 governance sandbox, which I believe is working to design coordination systems that may just change the world. As a long-time governance nerd, I just get stoked by this stuff.

Areas of Expertise

  1. I’m a long-time fiat-space governance nerd, an active governatooor, and have crafted or advised on dozens of Forum proposals.
  2. Writer, editor, shipper of educational web3 content, with particular expertise in making complex topics easy to understand.
  3. Decentralized/distributed social systems, project management.

Who are you?

Hello everyone, my name is Tân Binh, I’m currently a Support-nerd and an Ambassador at Optimism. Over the year, I’ve helped with resolving user issues across the Optimism discord server, as well as sharing translated and summarized ecosystem and governance news with my community through the regional channel on Discord or on Twitter.

Why do you want to become a badgeholder?

For me, the main objective of the Citizen House is very intriguing. Currently, there are numerous projects and people who have invested their time in building products to assist users, which create many positive influences on the Optimism and Ethereum ecosystems without expecting any return. The process of voting and allocating funds toward public goods, thereby helping and creating an exit for every project, is commendable (Impact= Profit). The process also ensures that those who have been dedicated throughout the year receive recognition and support for their contributions. The Optimism vision really resonates with me, and being a part of the Citizen House and helping with the process of making this decision is something I truly hope to be a part of.

Why do you want to become a badgeholder?
I have gained an immersive interest in the Optimism Ecosystem due to my recent research about the project. Optimism has a vision and mission that aligns with my personal goals and objectives. My decision on growing in this ecosystem will promote my career in the blockchain industry. I recently developed a blockchain product called Creath Art Marketplace - A digital gallery and art marketplace designed on the blockchain to promote sales of authentic art pieces to artists across the globe. I pitched the benefits of Optimism to my team at Creath and we have officially decided to launch our product on OP Stack.

Pumbi, Researcher for Optimism Español and Content/Community for Solow

Why do you want to become a badgeholder?
I would like to contribute my time and experience to build and continue shaping the future of Citizens’ House. I am aware that becoming a badgeholder represents a great responsibility and I am ready to take on the challenge.

As part of the Optimism en Español team and a contributor to SEED Latam, I do not feel it is honest or to receive a badge from Delegate @Joxes or @CryptoChica, considering the new rules for badgeholders in RPGF3.

That is why I am submitting my nomination to become a badgeholder supported by a member of the Collective who considers that my contributions could be valuable.

What are your areas of expertise?
Web3 Education, Digital Marketing, and a broad knowledge of the Optimism ecosystem.

My name is Daljeet. I am a co-founder of openblocklabs.com and we work on using quantitative methods to help protocols grow and become sustainable. We have been working on a number of projects around grant allocation and incentive optimization for Lido, Aave, Sui, Uniswap, etc. We use statistical techniques to understand the true lift of a grant and attempt to quantify the effect a given piece of growth (increase in TVL, volume, etc.) provides in value to the larger ecosystem.

Why do you want to become a badgeholder?

I would like to leverage our team of data scientists and our past experiences to help evaluate impact for Optimism RPGF and provide data-driven lists and attestations to add a layer of data intelligence to the decision making process.

What are your areas of expertise?

Data science, statistics, and machine learning experience to help quantify the value of public goods on the ecosystem.

We’ve also built and provide quant services for a number of the premier DeFi protocols, so I’m pretty well-versed in that space as well.

Hello, my name is Devansh Mehta and I’m a next billion fellow at the Ethereum Foundation. I’m a journalist by training currently working on retroactive funding of investigative reporters based on impact their stories create, like payouts to reporters behind the Panama Papers when those stories result in government investigations/lawsuits/asset seizures.

I want to become a badgeholder to get lived experience of assessing impact based on past work completed. I’m particularly interested in seeing how this process can move beyond a peer-review process, as I’ve detailed in this post on the forum.

My areas of expertise are writing (esp on Twitter), presentations & documentation. I can be reached on Twitter or Telegram @TheDevanshMehta
