:NOTE: After approval, all payout proposals will be for the N values displayed here; members of the CUDO DAO council and members of the community will have to use this as reference when asking for rewards. Those will be fixed once and if the request is approved by the council of the Creatives DAO. This must be done in order to protect the DAOs funds, otherwise we risk being unable to fulfill our commitments. That also means that members can ask for their payout at any point during the month.

Hello Cudo!
It is great to see your work from July! I wanted to ask how you plan on achieving this goal? It would be great to understand your strategies so others can learn how you receive so many views!

Also, do you plan on placing any NEAR logos on your video?

Thank you! :slight_smile:


Hi Adrian,

Thank you for your support. We have devised a strategy that mixes DAO creative funding and DAO marketing to be able to work with artistic projects (which naturally have low visibility) while delivering them to as many people as possible. To do this, we take DAO Creatives funding to share with our community through our projects. Upon completion, we use Marketing funds to boost these projects on our YouTube and Instagram channels.

As everyone is now hostage to algorithms, we understand that this is the best way to get our material to more places, and the result of this has been an interesting growth in our number of views and followers.

We are always open to talking with other DAO’s about our plans around here. Also, specifically about this, I think you can take a look at this report:

About the NEAR logo, the answer is yes =)

It was our first strategy to try to prove our contribution to the ecosystem. We spend a lot of time creating projects with high amounts of NFT’s (we are probably one of the DAO’s with the most NFT’s minted in Mintbase) but since we are a video producer interested in Video projects, we realized that another strong argument we have is to give NEAR more visibility by showing this brand in all our works. In this way, so that our videos reach 5k views, the NEAR brand was shown for another 5k times.



Thanks so much for your response! It is great to see how you all are working to continue elevating your project! After reviewing your proposals, we are happy to let you know that your proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, so it is approved by the Community Moderators!

Here are some highlights of your proposal for transparency:

  • Proposal follows the guidelines
  • Proposal is organized and easy to understand
  • There seems to be a fair distribution of of funds going to various people/projects
  • Pricing appears to be reasonable for tasks proposed
  • Projects continue to bring strong cultural awareness to the ecosystem
  • Onboarding efforts to continue growing the ecosystem in a meaningful way are included
  • Collaborations with other DAOs creating more DAO to DAO bonding in our space!

Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO Astrodao , so that the council can vote. When and if the vote of the council is ‘yes’, approach NF for your payout proposal, following this guideline: [New Process] Community Payouts . Also, Feel free to join our DiscordServer to Post Your Monthly Reports and Funding Proposals for Better Organization. Excited to watch you grow! :slight_smile:
