Hey, I’m JAM ☠️
index: yHF

I’m submitting candidacy for the following reasons:

  • Primarily, I intend on voting positively for any treasury proposals directed towards rewarding community-created artwork and initiatives that promote Kusama to the broader world. :skull_and_crossbones:
  • I also want to ensure that validator membership in the council is balanced against other needs - currently validators are effectively the only participants in the network, this may change soon and users and the broader community should have some representation on council.
  • Lastly (and least), in the long run I want to push Kusama towards independence from Polkadot, towards any radical changes to the runtime and consensus to reduce hierarchy and complexity, and less-radical changes to decrease barriers to entry (like increasing validator capacity; reducing existential deposits when economically feasible; and maintaining as many runtime variables and parameters of the network as possible as storageValues, that can directly be altered via governance, instead of runtime upgrades)

Disclosure: I am currently employed by Parity Technologies, however this candidacy is not under any official direction :heart:

I can be reached as “Jam”(@joshuam10o:matrix.parity.io) in all Kusama-related riot channels - “joshua-mir” on github and gitter, and @jam10o on twitter, reddit, telegram.
