Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining
I am interested in participating in Gitcoin governance as a way to give back my experience as both grantee and grantor of various Ethereum based ecosystem program. I believe that I have a good understanding of what ecosystem support developers seek through my experience of participating in various hackathons and receiving grants and bounties.
Also as an ENS team member, I would like to take this opportunity to strengthen the relationship between Gitcoin and ENS.
At ENS we are considering ways to give some of ENS registration revenue back to the community and would like to increase our alliance and collaboration rather than re-inventing many things Gitcoin has already built.
