Near Year Near BCU Guild Event
With its main net launch in 2020, a strong ecosystem premised on DAOs and guilds and a developer friendly environment, Near Protocol has slowly, but surely gained adoption in the Tropical Africa through a conviction of overcoming some of the major predicaments of competing systems—such as low throughput, low speeds, and poor cross-compatibility. The Blockchain Club of Uganda cherishes its association with such a platform.
I a bid to achieve our goal as a Near guild, and to set a platform for achieving our goals as stipulated in our Guild roadmap refer here https://www.blockchainuganda.io/ especially that of having our team introduce local developers to the building on the “ideal platform for DApps” and leveraging on the Doomslug consensus, it is crucial we keep them updated of the any major developments in the ecosystem, “we are a Near Bully Pulpit in the region”
Given this background, the blockchain Club of Uganda Guild has moved to organize a beginning of Year event as we prepare our 2022 projects.
Rationale of the even
To bring together the Near Uganda ecosystem for a one on one interaction.
To forge and brainstorm a possible way of working to together majorly between developers, artistes, traders, enthusiasts and general public.
To have a general input from the entire ecosystem for the Guild 2022 modus operandi. That’s to say, Artists may prefer an NFT based hackathon while traders may prefer a DeFi centric one.
To have a one on one social hour between the learning developers (university students) with the Blockchain Clun of Uganda Dev Head.
Previously similar executed activities.
The Blockchain Club of Uganda has previously held community events. These can be found here BCU Guild Convention - Google Drive
We expect an audience of 100-200 attendees, fifty percent 50% of these have probably created Near accounts. Therefore, those without accounts will open accounts accounting for at least 50% That’s to say 50 members.
For those with accounts already, we shall encourage incorporating the 2FA for the phone number and/or email bearing in mind that this locks some Near to cater for the service as well as boosting wallet security.
In this event, we also hope to reach 15-20 members of the Google Developer Schools Club of Makerere University. This is the group that will have a one on one with our Dev Head.
We also target to interact with at least 5 associates from the Uganda Museum who we shall introduce NFT’s on Near, in any case refer them to NFT infrastructure built on Near such as Mintbase and Paras.
Finally, we shall aim for more subscription to the Near Official socials especially Twitter and Telegram.

Social Media Management
We have had a slow social growth for the month of December because our Dec proposal was rejected. This means we need ambitious revamp for our social media reach.
For our socials, we shall do a like&retweet campaign to boost our twitter as well as advertise our New Year event https://twitter.com/BlockchainClubU
Therefore, the above pieces of swag shall be given to the attendees who will have like and retweeted our selected advertising tweets for the event.
Starting with this New Year event, we shall do video documentation which shall be uploaded under our Events Section on our website.
Therefore, we shall include the cost for the video in our social media management budget.
We shall also hold a Telegram quiz after our New Year event. This will help us to keep our telegram community engaged. Telegram: Contact @BlockchainClubUg
