[Approved] Chill&Shill Budget November

What is $NEAR Chill&Shill?
NEAR Chill&Shill is a twitter space in the NEAR ecosystem. We aim to educate our audience about the application and capabilities of NEAR By interviewing founders of projects on NEAR, we simultaneously spread awareness about NEAR, give founders a platform to spread the word about their project, and educate our listeners about NEAR. Our Twitter Space also includes community spaces where members of the NEAR ecosystem can connect and engage with each other, creating a strong and engaged community around NEAR . Our mission is to enhance the NEAR ecosystem by promoting the growth of projects, fostering engagement within the network, bringing our listeners the information and education to further their growth in web3 space.

Vision for November
Same as before, our vision is centered on our core objectives. We prioritize onboarding newcomers to the NEAR ecosystem with clarity and efficiency. We aim to deepen the existing community’s knowledge, emphasizing key components like NDC and BOS, ensuring our members are both aware and informed about these critical elements, and are actively participating in them.
Additionally, boosting activity on NEAR remains essential. Through targeted initiatives and insightful sessions, we’re set to vitalize the ecosystem, promoting heightened engagement. Our actions this month underscore our commitment to elevating the NEAR experience for all members.

Alignment with CoA Metrics:
NEAR Chill&Shill’s strategy for the forthcoming month is closely aligned with the CoA’s social engagement metrics. We aim to amplify our engagement score by leveraging a mix of interactive content, strategic posting schedules, and community-driven initiatives. This approach is designed to increase our social media presence through numerous posts resulting in likes, new followers, and impressions, fostering a thriving community around the NEAR ecosystem.

$NEAR Chill&Shill twitter spaces is exclusively around the NEAR and NEAR ecosystem.
$NEAR Chill&Shill’s distribution is done through @waxnear twitter account, which is the main social media account of $NEAR Chill&Shill where we post spaces, threads, articles, and any other media content produced by $NEAR Chill&Shill. This month, we want to host 3 spaces a week, with a total amount of 12 spaces for the month.
12 spaces * 270= 3240

  1. Content - Written - Threads

To complement our Twitter Spaces, we plan to produce in-depth, high-quality thread recaps. This initiative is designed to cater to our audience who may have missed the live sessions or those who simply prefer written content. It’s our way of ensuring that all valuable discussions and insights from our Twitter Spaces are accessible to everyone in our community.

12 threads* 80 = $960

  1. Social Media - Promotion/Distribution - Twitter

To promote and distribute all our content we use @waxnear, which is the face of $NEAR Chill&Shill. @waxnear has been tweeting exclusively about NEAR since its creation in December 2021, Alongside our main content, we have created and posted over 5,000 pieces of short-form written content about $NEAR, including educational, community building, news, analytics, and of course high quality memes. At present schedule, there are 7-10 pieces posted daily, which results in approximately 250 a month, as well as communication and further engagement in the comments.

  1. Social Media - Community Channel - Telegram

We not only create content and educate our listeners and readers, but also organize them in an actively engaged community to keep growing and learning more about NEAR blockchain together and collaborating with each other. This is also a channel of distribution for our content, but it is mainly a community environment where we post interactive games, announcements, and create activities for our members.

  1. Content - Video - Short educational videos

Each video, approximately a minute long, is designed to demystify complex NEAR concepts, transforming them into understandable, accessible information. The aim is to diversify our content offerings and cater to our audience with an array of engaging educational content. The central idea behind these videos is to create simple yet engaging animations that effectively communicate the unique aspects and advantages of NEAR to a wider audience.

4 videos * 200 = $800

Total: 5900

Hi @so608 , thanks for the feedback

You can check out or latest report here for September (as well as I have added it to the proposal):

Considering the delays with MDAO processes last month, as we got funding for October in the first week of November, we are still in progress with completing our October deliverables, on track to be completed within two weeks.

Hi @waxnear thanks for your propsal. I note the reply to @so608 regarding October deliverables. Keep up the good work and i am happy to support.

Please remember to post a Report with detailed metrics on performance. thanks

Hi @waxnear thanks for the update regarding the report and timing issues. I’m happy to support this for another month, but I will say that with a few notes:

  • We are working to restructure the way content is funded by the MDAO
  • We are not able to guarantee ongoing funding each month
  • It’s recommended that content projects consider building additional avenues for support and revenue
  • We are increasingly focused on funding content where there is a clear sight line from the content to on-chain activity
