Hi @HaiVu thanks for the proposal and your patience as we continue to work through the issues around allocating MarketingDAO funding towards regional initiatives. We have a call scheduled tomorrow that should provide us some clarity around how to move forward.


hi So608,
Thanks for your feedback!
Could you please update us on how to move forward with our proposal?

Thanks for your proposal Hai.

I am willing to support this proposal noting that it only covers Social Media and Content Creation. However, I would like to jump on a call to discuss the strategy for NEAR Vietnam going forward.

As you may have heard, there’s a lot of work grassroots work taking place to create a bette framework to fund Regional Communities. Up until the eventual setup of the Regional DAO, Marketing DAO is able to resume funding for Regional Communities.

Full context - Marketing DAO paused funding for Regional Communities as we acknowledged that Content and Communities are different and ought each ought to have custom guidelines to ensure we are aligned with Strategic Goals.

The key question is - what are the key hallmarks of a thriving local community? what is the difference between a social media account named after a region and any other social media account pushing out similar content?

This is not a criticism on the current work or seeking to diminish the value of amplifying information in local language. Rather, it is an invitation to think what else we can do to turbo charge as many local communities around the world.

Some of the things we’d like to see more of:

  • Partnership with University Research and/or Innovation programs. NF call for partnerships with Accelerators serves as a useful guide on how these relationships may look like, just note that there can be a ‘grassroots tier’ where NEAR Vietnam engages these organisations directly rather than through NF
  • Engagement with Student Blockchain clubs and societies. This could involve Meetups, mini-hackathons, etc. Anything that increases the level of awareness and grows the base of passionate NEAR contributors and builders.
  • Engagement with wider Web3 ecosystem - how can we get more people attending more Web3 events that are knowledgeable, confident and able to introduce people to NEAR?
  • Host Meetups (aim for existing developer communities - Rust Dev meetups, javascript, even AI, etc.)

The North Start would 2023 should be to host a NEAR Hacker House in Vietnam. Let’s map out what would have to be true for that to happen and I will personally work with the team to ensure we can unlock resources and support along the way to get there.

I’m willing to support the current proposal after we’ve had a call and aligned on the strategy going forward. Let’s find a time:


Thank you for your detailed feedback, AVB!
Let us think about that, and get back to you at the next meeting for further discussion!


Hi @HaiVu - thanks for your patience with our review of this proposal. I agree with @satojandro on his reasoning for supporting this. As a community, we have seen a huge delay with funding regional activations this year, and I think there is a need for the community to be supported right now more than ever.

Because your proposal falls within our scope, so I am happy to support this. Note that we may have a different approach/guidelines to funding regional activities soon as the NDC and others involved in the future of the ecosystem build out a way forward for regional growth. Moving this to approved.


You can now
