This is a simple pitch for delegated votes. I’m a Canadian computer science student who has been involved with cryptocurrency in one form or another since 2013. I’m currently the acting community manager for a project that’s entered into Solana’s ‘Ignition’ Hackathon. We’re an ‘impact-driven’ DeFi project looking to redistribute capital accrued by protocols back towards social-impact initiatives. I have a strong sense of civic duty, and this is what led me to exploring DAOs, with BitDAO being the first I’ve interacted with in a meaningful way.
I’m also a firm believer in decentralized protocol sovereignty, and feel that it is paramount that we ensure our values are not misrepresented as a result of obligations or interests. To this end, I will always seek council from the community, stakeholders, and advisors before coming to any conclusion; particularly when anything is derived from my own opinions.
A holistic understanding of best practice will only come through engaging with community. I feel strongly about the importance of retaining a perspective that cultivates resistance to bias, and extends dignity, respect, and consideration to all.
If you delegate your votes to me, my first course of action will be to further explore options of how the community could ensure a fair and equitable transfer of value back to those individuals who had mistakenly sent tokens to the contract address. If the majority community determines after careful consideration and discussion that this would benefit the community, and there are no apparent holes in the plan, I will then propose a vote.
Thank you everyone!
