I’m the Founder of several companies including Giveth, Dappnode, Common Stack, and General Magic. Additionally, I serve as a Steward on Gitcoin and ENS and am on a mission to use web3 to build something better than governments.
I am very excited to be a unifying force in the L2 space. I have close ties with Polygon's zkEVM via my co-founder in many projects Jordi Baylina, as well as I am an important Steward for Optimism (top 20) and Arbitrum (top 5), all three could be considered competitors. However, I view these connections as opportunities to strengthen the relationships among leaders in the L2 space. My approach is to bring everyone to the table and work together rather than pitting one against the other. I believe that we are not competing against each other but cooperating in the fight against traditional financial systems and banks. That’s why Giveth hosted the #ScalingNOW Conference in 2018, and I want to continue that effort to help us recognize that we are all in this together.
As a Steward of Mantle, I will of course be committed to prioritizing Mantle's interests over those of any other organizations. If there is a serious conflict of interest (eg Giveth request a grant to deploy on Mantle) I will abstain from voting. It’s my responsibility as a Steward, and I will fulfill it to the best of my ability. I’m excited by what Mantle can accomplished with it's large war chest and strong connection to a top-tier exchange like Bybit. I’m a friend of many in the Mantle community, I look forward to working with them and making new friends in this space.
Thank you for your delegation.
