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