My reasons for wanting to be a delegate: I look for ways that my social & community building skills can best serve the growth and decentralization of the Ethereum ecosystem. My passion is stewarding the beacon chain and the communities that rely on the web3 services provided by the Ethereum chain. I see Hop protocol as a valuable scaling solution that supports the L2 scaling model for Ethereum, and I want to do my part to educate others and help people choose tools that are most consistent with our shared values.
My web3 qualifications / skills: I’ve been involved with Ethereum since the public release of the whitepaper in 2014, I was a participant in the original Ethereum token sale, and I participated as a testnet miner on the Ethereum Olympic testnet. Since then I’ve tried every product I can get my hands on as I’ve honed my awareness for the things that matter, things like providing services as public goods that give far more to the community than they take as rewards. I am active on Reddit, Twitter, and Discord, and I founded the EthStaker community, a group of community custodians who educate about staking on Ethereum. As a self-described Ethereum-centrist, I do believe that Ethereum will be the settlement chain for the future of web3.
What voters can expect of me: You can expect me to learn everything I can about Hop and share that knowledge with the rest of the ecosystem. If Hop continues to align with my beliefs regarding healthy ecosystem and ethos, I’ll continue to strengthen the relationship. If I feel that the community or leadership has lost its way I’ll work in good faith to help correct the course. I work hard to put my own ego in check and listen to the needs of others and do my best to draw attention and serve those needs.
