Former data analyst, now community manager and technical writer at Sovryn
I contribute to writing Sovryn’s technical documentation on the wiki, as well as blog posts and upcoming, not yet publicised books/articles. I have done and look to do more podcast type events. I like to think I am well informed of the workings of Sovryn and have a good degree of understanding of the Bitocracy system. I am a constant active presence and enjoy calling BS if and when I see it. I am a user myself, with funds invested through staking and LP - I want to keep my (and therefore everybody else’s’) funds safe and maximise their return.
Why I want to be a Bitocracy delegate:
I don’t have a particularly large want to be a delegate, but it has been requested by many in the community. I like to think the Sovryn community have and will get to know me over time through my large presence in the public channels. I recognise that there is a need for some to delegate if and when they are not able to vote, and that they may prefer a delegate that is known to them and participates in almost every discussion in one way or another. Therefore, I am opening myself up to the opportunity of letting people delegate their voting power to me.
Platform and values:
I am The Gimp. I like to think I understand both the viewpoints and therefore voting intentions of the “typical user” as well as “the experts”, since I technically am both of those things. I experience the life of a typical user daily since I use the Sovryn platform for some of my own financial activities and I also contribute to the project in technical and community based areas. I have resigned from my ‘typical 9-5 job’ to become a full-time contributor to Sovryn. Therefore, it is in my best interest to do right by Sovryn and its community, and see that Sovryn achieves its ground-breaking potential.
My values are simple - I wish to see Sovryn advance to becoming the financial operating system on top of Bitcoin (and everything else eventually). This has to be done whilst maintaining security first and foremost.
There must also be no “funny business” where specific parties are granted favourable situations purely based on their status - everyone is equal. For example, in the case of the Pomp strategic partnership proposal, I voted for the proposal. This is because the collection of investors provided many valuable factors to Sovryn and moved (and are still moving) it further along the line towards it’s end goal. If Pomp had proposed to purchase SOV purely based on his status and had not offered the value in return, I would have voted against the proposal. I feel that the wider team and community already share my stance on this, but it is worth clarifying nonetheless.
In the event that there is a community created proposal, or at least an idea for a proposal that I agree with, I will happily draft a suitable proposal if necessary; I can operate as the account that aims to accumulate 1% of the current voting power needed to push a proposal to a Bitocracy vote in that scenario. If I were to disagree with a potential community proposal, I would simply advise that you find another delegate that shares your thinking.
Have any questions for me regarding my delegacy? Reply to this post and I will respond to you
