Hi Filipino Artists Guild,

This leads to a draft post without information related to the budget asked.

From the report, there are still pending budget that you haven’t used, I believed that you can utilize this one for your bi weekly activities.


While 50% of the budget asked is for collecting NFT, I don’t think asking 200$ for shilling post is reasonable here, I believe this belongs to social media management and is part of marketing effort.

Can you elaborate more on $200 tipping? Why does the DAO need that beside $1500 for council work? Thank you!

Hi @williamx

Thank you for your questions.

  1. For community tipping - these won’t go to the wallets of councils rather to the community. We spread the funding amongst the 7 for the even distribution as we are online on different times of the day, same with our members and with that strategy, we can tip more members with it while keeping the community active.

  2. We are not charging 200$ for weekly post alone as doing so is already part of council’s duty. The asked amount is allocated for 50$ a week to purchase worthy NFTs that are being shilled to these said posts, sell it as secondaries and give royalties to the Filipino Artists Guild and Creatives DAO, hence - one of our roads towards sustainability.

  3. As there’ve been funding delays, there are times that we are short and there are times that it overlaps. We are not asking for 5000$ funding for August 2022 rather 1,592.68$ only to cover accomplished initiatives and we can start anew. We understand that the table is confusing and it looked like we are asking for 5000$, give us a minute then we’ll present a new sheet of asked funding for this month.

Here’s the breakdown of the funding request of $1592.68.
The missing $12.68 from the $1580 requested funding was to close the $5000 budget for the planned activities.

Activities Budget
Biweekly Art Challenges $0
Artist of the Month $300
Mentor reward $200
NFT Collecting (Twitter Space and Shilling Tweet) $0
24hr Art Rush $480
Community Initiative - Game Night $200
Community Intiative - Twitter Raids and Raffles $200
Community Tipping; to be distributed to 7 councils $200
Council Rewards $0
Total $1,580

Hello @gmachines, thank you very much for the clarification. Can you replace this with the table on the main proposal, so that others will clearly understand the amount asked for August alone?
