Hello everyone,

I would like to submit my application for one of the Aura Delegate Council role.

I’ve been an Aura holder since day one and use Aura as one of the main protocols I interact with.
I’ve covered different roles in the past at BalancerDAO: from Partnership subDAO to head of the Liquidity Mining Committee.
I’ve been head of Partnership at PolygonDAO before before taking a pause and going back to aviation during the past summer (couldn’t keep up with calls/flying/private life)
I also advise other projects on strategy and market positioning.

I have extensive experience in DeFi and I truly believe I can help Aura (and the Balancer ecosystem) scale.

Time commitment: I am very flexible and can commit time depending on the work required.

Hey,

I would like to apply myself to one of the 4 spots available on the Aura Delegate Council. I have a background in cybersecurity, mainly on the organizational side like governance and policy. Primarily worked with ISO standards and the GDPR. I’ve been in crypto for quite a while now and keep a close eye on different innovations within DeFi. I’m currently setting up a governance framework for an opensource learning platform for web3 beginners called KOIOSDAO. I think I could add value by being on the Aura Delegate Council.

Time Commitment: Flexible depending on work required

Introduction about Myself:
I entered the blockchain space in early 2017 and I believe Web3 can have a huge impact on shaping the future of the society and economy. I’m an entrepreneur with 13+ years of experience as a startup founder, marketer and project manager.
My latest venture is a blockchain marketing agency that helps blockchain companies (DEXs, dApps, DAOs, etc.) launch their token sales, develop their brand and build a solid marketing strategy nurturing their community. Clients can be both startups and scale-ups. I act mainly as a Chief Marketing Officer and a Chief Business Development Officer. I worked for different projects in the space: DAOs, DeFi middlewares, multichain wallets, asset trackers, Metaverse and play-to-earn projects, yield generators and NFT projects.

I am a strong believer in what Aura and Balancer are building since I believe they truly represent the democratizing power of blockchain and contribute massively to DeFi’s evolution.

I have built a pretty big network within the blockchain space and I would love to use my skills, knowledge and connections to further develop Aura’s project and advance the whole ecosystem.

Time Commitment / Week:
I work day and night in the blockchain space, and as a consequence, I am very flexible.

Introduction about Myself:
I have been performing treasury analysis for Balancer DAO over the last couple months and have been in close communication with core contributors in the overall ecosystem. I strongly believe in the category-defining potential of the Balancer ecosystem, both because of the technology but also the professionalism that its members have shown in managing the DAO. I have always been impressed by the symbiotic relationship Aura Finance has to enhance the Balancer ecosystem and would like to take part in the ecosystem as one of the delegates to continue growing and strengthening Aura’s positive influence and be a steward of maximizing value for the Balancer DAO.

As for my background, I’ve advised over 15+ projects on their tokenomics design and work closely with the top investors and venture firms with capital deployment in the crypto space. Making sure incentives are aligned across the economy is core to what I do, and I plan on voting for the benefit of the Aura and Balancer ecosystem.

I have over 8 years+ experience in finance, working with institutions and investment funds on investment strategies and capital allocation. I have a CFA, an MBA and was a founder myself. That said, most importantly, I believe that the Balancer and Aura partnership is a symbiotic relationship that will disrupt the future of finance. I want to do my part in ensuring that the treasury is managed in a sustainable, diversified and responsible way, and believe that liquidity pools that are generating diversified income for the ecosystem should be prioritized at all cost in order for this ecosystem to flourish.

Time Commitment / Week:
I am flexible and would love to ensure that the Aura and Balancer ecosystem succeed.
