That’s great , Great hopes from freelancer DAO for working far more efficient :clap: MarketingDAO Community
This month proposal would be accepted soon


I think the FDAO engagers are doing a great job by actively taking part in competitions and connecting with the community.

However, I have some concerns about the total council budget, which is $3.3k. It seems like the council’s salaries might be too high compared to what I’ve seen in other projects that deliver excellent results with lower overall funding (including community expenses and team salaries).

I’m curious about the specific extra work the FDAO council members are doing to justify their $900 salaries. To be honest, I haven’t noticed many council members being as active as Ankit , Alphaflex and Boma (Psalm). In weekly meetings, it’s mostly these who actively engage with the community and contribute to discussions.

In simpler terms, I appreciate the hard work of some FDAO council members, but I’m concerned that their salaries, when compared to other projects, might be too high given the level of activity and contribution I observe from them.


Hello @dellni i really appreciate your feedback, as all core contributors have been working in their best manner to grow the community and 900$ is worth my activity as a champion.

  • DAO project differs from community project as core contributors have more responsibility.
    Now let me outline what I do in a month and I’m most time active 6hrs daily.

Activities of Psalm.

  • I’m in charge of Social media management (NEAR Social and Twitter and targeting to meet up 100 post in a month with good impression)
  • I’m in charge of co ordination and making sure all activities are successful and meet traction.
  • strategic planning and creating proposal and report to meet KPIs and appropriate goals and great results.
  • At the end of the month we audit Engager and also score them.
  • along side with core contributors I ensure marketing strategies to meet up traction is implemented and achievable.
  • Reach out for partnerships and Collabs for mutual growths and support.

However I was able to reduce my salary by 55% cause of my desire for the project to grow and to make availability for the community to also support grow NEAR.

Thanks for your feedback edited the post yesterday to $2k discussed with core contributors to be aware of a decrease in salary, maybe when the community grows and get more reputation we can increase in a fair approach.

Honestly you’re right.
But I believe in most projects we wouldn’t expect 100% perfection from leaders or core contributors as we are all humans, so I would discuss with them concerning this notification

Honestly your feedback is benevolent and helpful thanks.
All feedback noted


Hi @Psalmy thanks for the proposal – I generally like what appears to be the goal here: to systematize a way to give creators and content makers remuneration for their work in support of the NEAR ecosystem. As a longtime content creator and freelancer myself, I am in favor of approaches like this.

What’s missing for me in this proposal is a clear (does not need to be lengthy) statement around how rewarding the creators/freelancers in the DAO helps the community achieve the KPIs we’re focused on right now. With election underway, we are focused on what’s next. You can view the MDAO September KPIs here:

MDAO September KPIs

This month, we are focused on supporting projects that can demonstrate the following Key Performance Indicators ( KPIs):

  • Increasing numbers of active Developers
  • Increasing numbers of active Users and Transactions
    • On-chain onboarding
    • On-chain engagement
    • On-chain participation in ecosystem dApps
  • Increasing numbers of Tools, dApps on BOS
  • Increasing the number of people educated about NDC governance, BOS and active projects in the ecosystem

Can you update the proposal to meet the below requirement:

As part of that, we ask that proposals clearly state how their activities will achieve these key performance metrics. For example:

  • How do their activities drive builders and developers?
  • What mechanisms will they use to track and report onboarded users, engagement, transactions?

Also noting your reduction in remuneration based on feedback.


@so608 thanks for you benevolent response.
In summary how are keeping to KPIs with several activities which I would summarize.

Onchain engagement

  • we do practice posting GM on BOS daily to increase Onchain Activities and we get 12-20 GM comments in a day.
    An average of 16 comments daily by 20days that’s 320 comments.
  • Collab with a Facebook influencer for football prediction on BOS so to attract football fans from web2 to engage on BOS this would lead to onboarding and onchain engagement.
    How do we plan to do this?
    The football influencer would post live match twice a week for on his page and direct fans to comment live score predictions on the BOS to win a little token for the first to get the right live score predicted before the match.
    How can we track newly onboarded? a special link would be used by the influencer to track new invite and we would create a spreadsheet to save the data for newly onboarded.

:point_up_2: influencers page.

Onboarding devs.

Through real live outreach to computer students to educate them about the BOS and onboard +25 Students to explorer the BOS and learn about it. :point_down:

About NDC education

Engagers provides contents and also threads about the NDC election and build engagement around it.

  • Encouraging the community to participate in Voting and to be voted for.
  • Host 4-6 calls for voter’s education
    Etc more details are on the proposal.

How we would meet up and achieve this KPIs where stated above but I had a call with Bakaka yesterday to explain further and I’m glad to execute this.

Thanks for your feedback

After several calls and restructure, am happy to support

Looking forward to see more organic enagegements with the ecosystem tools and growth, try to utilize ShardDog or keypom too vwry effective.
