Hey, everyone! I’m a Brazilian Master in biomedical engineering and I work with medical image reconstruction, design of human body and prosthetics 3D models, and 3D printing. This career segment guided me to the arts and since 2016 I work with digital painting. In August 2021, I started studies on human portraits and botany. I joined the NEAR community in November 2021 through the fraDAO group in an NFT Experience Design workshop, where I learned about NFTs, platforms and cryptocurrency transactions. In April, I was invited by fraDAO to teach about advanced digital painting in Photoshop. Recently I gave a Blender workshop for beginners to our members and we’re now collaborating in the dev of NEAR Hub spaces.

Frado - frado.near - frado.com.br

Frado has been dedicated to the arts since he was a child. Born, in 1979, in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil, in a collaborative environment, as his parents, in addition to being married, worked together at Ag Comunicação Visual, where they developed Public Relations, Graphic/Visual Arts and Special Projects. At the age of 5, he started playing the guitar and never stopped, always curious about how the world works, he became a multifaceted artist and self-taught in various topics, where he found the academic school super uninteresting. It’s natural research, as it is used in the objectification of ideas into something concrete in Music, in various forms of Arts, Architecture, Electronics, Sound Art, Art installations, Video Art, inventions, Virtual Reality (VR), philosophies and branding.

His ART devotion, resulting in 2022, won 2 Golden Lions in Cannes in collaboration with Tátil Designer in Carnaval do Rio Brand, the same partner developing in Rio 2016, The Paralympic multisensorial sculpture.

Techne is a worldwide and ancient word (in ancient Greek: τέχνη). Objectifying in various media, different materials and analog and digital platforms has always been its quality. Restlessly, he continues to objectify his path and the world around him, in real and Virtual (VR).

What kind of impact is creating or is on the track to create ?

Social, Technological, educational, cultural and economic impact, for the community and ecosystem

Our mission is including and give access to elderly and middle-aged women artists, taking them out of the technological, digital, social, and financial vulnerability zone, since December 2021 to woman in Brazil, Canada, Italy, Russia, Portugal and collabs with Ina DAO, fra DAO, Hype DAO, Family DAO, Graffiti DAO, Afrostar in NFT Collaboration project.

In addition to taking female artists and technologists between the ages of 30 and 91 out of the zone of vulnerability and ostracism, we were able to disseminate the information to relatives, children, husbands, and grandchildren.

We have noticed that the ladies are more productive; there are artists who have already made more than 1000 NFTs in 3 months, in PARAS.

We were invited by the international event NFT RIO, Smart Summit 2023, Rio Innovation Week, to give lectures and pitching about DAO, about fraDAO within NEAR, and metaverse (we use NEARHub).

Likewise, we show that the social and economic impact can be circular and not only pyramidal. Furthermore, we practice the circular form.

We believe that thinking about workshops, artistic grants, outreach, governance, assistance, social responsibility, education, and projects that embrace art, mixed with infrastructure projects, are the path of fraDAO. We want our projects to circulate in the ecosystem.

What is the DAO’s goal or objective?

During this project we intend to share our knowledge on NEARHub, for the ecosystem to enhance our metaverse. We realize that much of the ecosystem ends up creating parties, exhibitions and experiences using NEAR funds and promoting it on cryptovoxel. Our intention is to promote the continuity of the metaverse experience within the NEAR protocol. We are not measuring the value of the workshop thinking of the real market value, which would be much more expensive, but what we can contribute in this first annual project to our ecosystem and bring new creators to the NEAR ecosystem. We value funds and want to preserve awareness in the development of creativeDAO. Our intention is also to create Dapps in the next quarter, we are studying and getting certified for this to happen.I am concerned about the lack of marketing funds, they see passion project but there is no one passionate about working for free in our community, and it ends up crashing as we do not apply pyramid schemes or exploitation to our members but the circular concept of web3.

We want to keep our social media alive with someone taking care of each one on a weekly basis. One of fraDAO’s value is to never exploit a member. We have to take care of the branding of fraDAO and the NEAR Protocol, quality above all.

We want to maintain the great relationship with NEAR Hubs and seek more DAOs to do joint actions and become a self-sustainable DAO.

Roadmap to reach the goal

week 01: Publicize the Workshop and Create new portfolios via NEAR Drop and create a pool to decide which of the 03 ideas proposed by the fraDAO community we will build a metaverse on NEARHub.

Week 02: We will have all the participants via telegram and discord within the online metaverse construction manual for a week, after the chosen theme we will have an art direction with two assistants who will share all the steps of defining the color palette, shapes, drawings, structures, sky, terrain and sound. All aesthetics and language will be defined, documented and recorded to be able to share with everyone. With this manual and guideline ready, we will hand over the 3D, visual and sound art team that will follow the creative direction. Assistants will be chosen in this week.

week 03: Begin the blender workshop, we will have 03 call, with times defined by voting and screen recordings of the process explaining how the 3D models were made, enveloping graphic art textures, triangle tips. everyone could ask about the process and have access to a Blender basics document made by fraDAO. Anyone who knows how to create in blender can contribute with objects or enter the NEAR forum to participate in the bounties that will be published. We will use jitsi Meet or Discord, it will be voted to better serve the community.

Week 04: NEARHub/Spoke workshop, we will have 03 online meetings via jitsi or Discord sharing the screen to explain all NEARHubs/Spoke functionalities and how to bring blender files inside and start a project. We will teach why always have the files in .gltf and how to have autonomy in Blender to modify the amounts of triangles and correct texture sizes with simple corrections using any graphic image application. This week we will have the creation of the basic structure of the metaverse, while we wait for all the pieces to be modeled in 3D.

Week 05: workshop of music/soundscape/fx production, 8D audio, Spatial audio programming in Spoke, audio Zone, mixing and mastering, explain minting processing and How to integrate 01 music, 01 landscape and 02 FX audio. We will follow art direction guidelines to create all sound files, using either logic pro or Endless. We will have 03 online meetings about the creation and mixing process, remembering that I will share my screen with the transmission link every time I’m working, in addition to the 03 meetings. By the end of this week, with the help of the assistants, we will have the entire process detailed in a visual guideline manual with the most important notes. everything will be shared on Discord. 3D and audio Mint proccess!

Week 06: NEARHub and Blender workshop. We’ll have a 2-hour call to explain and answer blender’s last doubts and show some important details in finalizing the files.
This week, we will already have all the community bouties and Narau Blender files. We will have 03 meetings with screen sharing for the last phase of the metabuilder, to gather all the objects, create the map of collision and walkable objects. we will show how to place NFTs with links, place the sky and finally the audio and sound effects. We will explain about the sound of the space with audio zone. We will finalize this environment that was developed in 6 weeks, taking all technical questions and creative direction for the community.
In the end, everyone who participated won a certificate of completion in NFT format.

How is the longer term goal divided into milestones making the DAO reach there?

With quality projects that respect all the norms and constitution of the NDC, CreativeDAO and NEAR Forum. In the long term we want to have a series of creative Dapps, represent NEAR at various events and one day be able to provide grants to our community.

We have a team of brilliant people of great character, that makes all the difference, we are here to do our best and not do the project anyway and receive the funds, we have accessed funds in the past and we know exactly about the tickets and how difficult it is be funded, so we are aware of always praising NEAR in our very well structured and complex projects. We love complex governance, art, technology and branding projects.

What will the community or the team members’ role be?

The role of the community is that they empower NEARHub and create their own experiences and make NEAR leverage the amount of metaverse, on the web3. The team members are people who already work with this even with a higher degree of complexity, in this case Narau is biomedical, reconstructing human organs for biotechnology projects.

We are focused on engaging the fraDAO community and the NEAR Forum in bounties and passing on the experience of art direction and creative direction in projects with the most engaged in the project, we want this first project to be a communion with the community. We are here to give our best to the ecosystem, enjoy!

Hey @frado!

FYI, USN is no longer supported.

Could you please elaborate more about integration with the NDC?
Thank you in advance!


Thanks @Paul!

I will exchange it for USDC or DAI, in the case of USN it was just to symbolize a stable coin.

I will do the editing now, thank you for your attention

Have a nice day!

@Paul about NDC:
in call and workgroups, collaborating with regional ideias. Only collaborating with ideias, branding and demonstrating that creativeDAO is very important for the ecosystem. CreativeDAO is very important.
I am studying about NDC governance. Just an enthusiast and creative collaborator.

The word used integration is linked to following up studying on:

  • The constitution
  • A radically new way o governing itself
  • How will it be, establishing a community treasury and governance model that allows the ecosystem to collectively make decisions on everything from funding to elected representatives
  • I want to be aware of voting, regional hubs, governance, and guidelines.
  • 2023 will have first congress to be held for NDC as a virtual event

only this
