[Approved] - AFROSTAR GUILD FUNDING PROPOSAL FOR [May/June] - [2023]


  • DAO introduction

Afrostar Guild is a community which is 80% centerd on black Female creatives worldwide, Celebrities & Social Media Influencers. This community was founded with the purpose of adding value to talented female creatives after discovering lots of black female creatives existing with almost zero support which makes the majority bury their talents because of lack of support and a community related to their talent to engage with. Women can be mostly sellable and however, we selectively choose quality, packaging it for the web3, web2 & real life marketing value. We give them an opportunity to experiment and explore their talent with the NEAR blockchain platform in terms of creating music & art content, tokenising by minting them as NFTs. At the moment, we are looking forward to growing our base digitally where everyone around the world can come together, share ideas, create and learn about the blockchain and its application to their talent, music/art.
Onboarding creatives already exist on the web2 platform to add up with the figures of potential active web3 users in our DAO.

  • Why team is best for the funds

We are all working towards one goal, honesty, trustable, experienced and accountable.
They convey the community well in building, teaching, guidance, quality control and planning towards longevity, sustainability
