[Approved by HoM] AC-DAO: NDC V1 MAR Budget Application Version 2


AC-DAO officially joined NDC on November 29, 2023, as a community-led project in the ecosystem category. Our mission is to facilitate the transition to the Near Digital Collective (NDC) through decentralized governance.

This budget proposal aligns with NDC’s goals for equitable power distribution and the adoption of decentralized technologies, outlining our commitment to these objectives.

Hello! Yes, there were some technical issues on the NEAR Forum side, but the problem has been fully resolved and my REPORT has been published - LINK.


Just curious, is there a reason for there being two pipeflair proposals instead of both bring in the same proposal concerning "gaming retention and growth”?.

Seems like everything in the proposal for building out a new game would be included in the theme of gaming retention and growth?

Also, it’s very difficult to evaluate proposals for which there are no links. There’s also a note from January asking for links to be added previously?

Also just general, is there a reason that funding for December is being asked for now? I see the note for it the budget line item, but I don’t see additional details for why or a report for December attached.


We started working on the Dao back in November, but since Hom approved the renumbering for December, we are requesting it now. For example @techdir did all the graphics, but never requested additional funding for that. @YoNota was involved in setting up the ambassador program, and reviewing ambassador applications @Luchok was involved in various NDC initiatives, setting up communication with projects, and infrastructure for grantees. In general, the whole team of ac-dao consuls supported each other in various issues from the very beginning of the project.

a reason for there being two pipeflair proposals

It’s much easier to track two miniprojects than to track one big one. That’s why we decided to divide Pipeflare into 2 proposals


I envy your team, my team on the project I’m working on is very small, only 3. and those two work just to get by, 0 initiative, 0 ideas for improvement or support for ideas for implementation(
