Hello friends! =)

I am really happy to read it, but I have two suggestions to give more clarity to your proposal:

Put your latest report as a link to help us find what your DAO has done in the last month. That gives more credibility to your proposals.

Also, when you wrote all the budgets only in USD and then the budget for mintbase in NEAR COIN it seemed confusing to me. Maybe you should put the USD and then the conversion to NEAR COIN.

You can see an example of a proposal here:

how does this sound to you?

Hi Heverton @hevertonharieno ! Thank you for your suggestions.

I will talk to the Demonstra members and give you feedback very soon.

But what you said makes all sense.
Gradually, we are perfecting our orders.
