Hi @Ola thanks for the proposal. A few questions/comments:

I see there’s been a 25% increase in dev onboarding, which is great. As a reference, here are the metrics we need grantees to be able to track and show performance around based on NDC guidelines:

To evaluate the results, please use the following metrics that will be used for tracking individual initiatives’ performance by DAO.

All the metrics must be attributable to the relevant project/initiative through on-chain activity and off-chain reporting, ensuring GDPR compliance and preserving privacy:

  1. Accounts retention after 1/2/4/8 weeks — the percentage of accounts who continue interacting on the chain over a given time period (higher is better).
  2. Account acquisition cost — budget divided by the number of accounts interacting through the funded initiative (lower is better).
  3. Median number of dApps used by P95 accounts retained for 1+ week (higher is better).
  4. Number of accounts retained for 1+ week using at least three dApps (higher is better)
  5. Social engagement score — some compound metric of the number of posts, likes, and followers/views in social media produced by the users.

Which do you track for content – what’s your strategy/practice there?

MDAO is focused on funding initiatives that are producing content around the topics on the Editorial Calendar we’ve established based on ecosystem stakeholder priorities (e.g. NDC, NF, Grassroots DAOs, etc). Can this initiative produce content tied to these topics and, if so, which ones?

Hello Lorraine,

Thank you for your response…

DiscoverBOS is focused on producing and have been producing content-focused on

  • The Openweb
  • Easy onboarding
  • Chain Abstraction.

Just to further mention that we are not just producing content around these topics, we have also been doing workshops, building resources and partnerships/collaborations around them both in and outside the ecosystem

Such as collaborations with ProximityLabs, QuickSwapDex on Polygon, Linea/Consensys, Jutsu, DapDap around the Open Web and Chain Abstraction Virtual Workshop where we deep dived into the Openweb and Chain Abstraction.


We are also leveraging Our Collaborations with NearBalkan, Banyan US and other partners in building a curated educational library of resources on above topics.

With regards to account retention on onchain analysis, please note that discoverBOS is built onchain and it is a Near OpenWeb discovery platform that easily guide and users in navigating the Near and BOS ecosystem. Over the past 2weeks we have had 15,000 users visit our platform

While our Collaboration with our Community outreach partners such as with NearXArt to help with Onboarding and retention of Creators on BOS

Interaction onchain:

  • 50+ Art works created to be uploaded and sold on the upcoming Built on BOS Art market place.(not NFT but traditional created art )
  • Shard.dog: 50+ NFT created
  • Near.social: >100 post and reviews from the event tracable with #Paintandcreate
  • Mynearwallet: 100+ wallet created
  • Keypom: 50+ wallets created

Another collaboration with Near Africa’s Web Fusion 3 days Hackathon that was Sponsored by DevHub’s HackBOX where the about 100 developers that were present used DiscoverBOS platform primarily to navigate getting materials and resources to help building on BOS




In conclusion,

DiscoverBOS is a resource platform and a gateway with educational and onboarding purpose for masses to learn about the Near and the BOS layer Openweb.
