[Approved] Datality.com Pre-Launch Marketing Budget - Q1

Thanks so much, Dacha and David. Fireworks! :slight_smile: One more bit of feedback in the interest of making us all better… then I have to break for a few hours:

@Dacha 's assessment is spot on: Datality is similar to an Ebay|AirBnB|Uber for research data; and our surface-level tactic is solely engaging sellers and buyers. However, with every Datality user, we’re concurrently showing them NEAR Protocol on every signup, posting, purchase, and product review. We’re directly marketing NEAR (blockchain) as a critical economic facet of a trustworthy market and $NEAR (crypto) as a safe and efficient payment/payout medium. In fact, NEAR is showcased in their Datality user menu to see those immutable transactions:

Thus, I see this marketing effort being very mutually beneficial, hence the proposal - first for Datality, and then quickly thereafter for NEAR.

FRG Standards:
My 25 years (yikes!) of experience says the level of standards rise to how well participants make each other better. I believe my research, structure, strategy and high expectations for Datality, FRG and every Datality contributor will enable them to achieve great things in 3 months’ time, be an example in crafting a vendor-client fit, and long-term won’t be a waste of your time and funding.

There are other considerations, but it’s a lot. Enjoy the day/evening, and thanks again for your time and consideration! :muscle: :rocket:


Just a little part.

The same actually :joy:, asked you multiple times, when Near Community granted them “trusted” level? Do you have a link on voting? How so not transparent guild got this status?

It doesn’t cost x19 . OWS and their contributors after last improvements do great transparent work, definitely better than Flying R.

Why NF discriminates OWS Community members who make the same work for $200 against Rhino $1900?

Again, I’m asking Ecosystem DAO councils put attention on this question, don’t create monopoly here.


Yes, we are two most active members here. I really like public conversations.

Thanks. You you wanna got my vote, I need a reference from Near Dev team . But, it’s not important, because DAO has another 5 councils who can say Yes.
I don’t see “community driven” body here.

Have a great day!


Good afternoon, @Dacha!
Did I get it right? This organization does not have a DAO, does not have a community presence, is it transparent? Is it just a commercial organization that gets funding from the Marketing DAO and NF? So it’s just paying for a private marketing agency? But then I don’t understand why marketing guilds and DAOs are being created in the community at all, if we can simply order and pay for these services to private and independent marketing companies? This is all very strange …


This organisation has already received a grant from NEAR.

Please read and understand the proposal, this is a beyond valuable product for the entire ecosystem.

If you’re referring to the FRG, they have a significant presence in the NEAR Community.


It’s the NEAR Foundation, the funding body, which determines the level (tier) a Guild is at AFAIK:

You’ve been critical of the OWS submissions yourself, please understand that there is a difference between incentivised community-driven content and (what is essentially emerging as) a professional near-focused marketing/social media Guild.

Like I said, let’s move this discussion elsewhere if you want to continue it :ballot_box_with_check:

Haha, it catches up with all of us, Clint! Awesome to hear you have so much experience :tada:

I’m happy to get this funded so long as there are no further objections from @marketingdao-council

Good afternoon David! Nice to See you again!)
I’m already confused, to be honest) So is this a guild that is part of the NF or is it an independent private company that is not part of the NEAR ecosystem?)

Can you clarify what you’re referring to, please? Are you referring to OWS, Flying Rhino Guild, or Datality?


I understand that the Flying Rhino Guild is an NF project, but this one is not clear)

It’s not an NF project, it’s an independent Guild which receives funding from the NEAR Foundation (as all Guilds do).

Datality is a project which @Clint-Datality is leading, read the original post and further up in the thread to understand what they’re launching. Think of it like an eBay for research data.

See what’s been built already here :point_up:


Everything, I understand, I’ll read it in more detail to understand the essence, otherwise I’m really confused)
Thank you David! Sorry for wasting your time on these questions!


No problem, and there’s no such thing as silly questions! Always happy to help :muscle:


Thanks @Dacha , @David_NEAR and @NearCommunity !

I’m discussing tokenization and DAO potential with Legal Guild Monday morning. I haven’t yet explored that method of governance and funding… it’s one of my areas of inexperience.

But with so many researchers out there who could directly benefit on launch day, perhaps we’ll find a DAO framework allows Datality to explode and therefore overlaps more with MarketingDAO’s mission.

More to come! :slight_smile: :muscle: :rocket:



Please continue the discussion here:

Let’s not fill up this thread.


Hey @Clint-Datality ,

This is approved, please submit a funding request to the DAO. Thanks!

We won’t let you down… we will make sure this benefits the NEAR community. :muscle::pray::rocket:

Hey @David_NEAR ! Maybe I’m being thick-headed, but I can’t see a “create new proposal” link/button on Astro per the funding instructions on [Guide] How to submit a funding proposal to the Marketing DAO - #5 by Dacha. Can you help a brother out?

Hey Clint!

Absolutely, should be a guide here under ‘requesting payouts’:

However, we’re on the verge of changing the payout format, would you be ok with waiting until Friday (ish) to submit the funding request? That’d be ideal for us
