Hello NEAReans, this is an update from the squad I am leading here in Venezuela.
Granular breakdown of the funding proposal - Projects:
We have a project that is targeting the community goals, but we lack developers or funds. We need help and guidance.
Venezuela is undoubtedly a good place for NEAR to spread. The audience here is willing to try new alternatives, and NEAR will be easily adopted.
To prove we are working hard for the growth of the community.
We have created a base full of content, connections in the ecosystem, and an increasingly engaged team.
Our squad performed tasks
We have been working on several tasks to grow the community

Tasks given by the Swineguild
The memes made by @yehosua.near are a hit, of course, he is an experienced designer with skils on video editing that knows how to make nice gif/videos. As I have been saying, we are working as a squad, so we all share ideas, and this way, the memes are top quality
We are on the same page about going out there to find all of those people that need this technology, and their lives will be improved when they start to use it on a daily basis.
There is a lot of interest in the ecosystem around DeFi:
And of course, there is also a big interest within the NEAR community to reach end-users:
Our core mission at NEAR is to onboard everyone to Web3- not just developers & early adopters, but end users. This is an interesting challenge as the onboarding to some of these applications might not be the most intuitive. We can, and are, innovating constantly on the product side. But it’s super important for us to focus on the people’s side.

We are certain that a City Node in Caracas, Venezuela, will have a tremendous impact on NEAR’s growth. with a Guild monthly fund we will achieve a lot more.
People is willing to try (Venezuela and other countries like Argentina need financial tools)
We are a professional and experienced squad that have worked with cryptocurrencies for several years, and we are onboarding a lot of new members with different skills that are improving in areas like translation, writing and video edition.
We already own a place where we can host events (see Crypto Beer Project)
In June, we found a place, and we could not finish the project due to a lack of resources. To see what the project was click here
We found a new place, where we will explore many new opportunities for NEAR, because there we will start giving blockchain courses as teachers of Tecnologia Financiera, a very recognized finance school with +200k followers. Our City Node could be located on the same floor.
Waiting for further instructions, we have been asking, and we are waiting for any reply:
As you can see in the links of this document, we are waiting to run a marketing plan, we can first make several pubs accept NEAR tokens as payment, exposure for NEAR with Palmeros de Chacao, blockchain courses, several events.
We could start with more force our following efforts if we can get a monthly fund, we can achieve our goals with 10,000 USD per month.
Since we are going to perform tasks related to Venezuela we need a “NearVenezuela” Tag.
Also, we need the contact of the web developer of Find, Join, or Start a Guild on NEAR so we can update the Logo.
We show you on the “Crypto Beer” project that we can make partnership with big figures on Venezuela that will give good track and marketing to NEAR Protocol around here.
Now we have an even better idea, we have close contact with “Palmeros de Chacao” (Cultural Heritage of Humanity), and we are sure that if the NEAR Foundation helps them as a sponsor to continue to do their work saving the world by planting trees and protecting green areas, then we will have the best of the marketing impact, good exposure.
Create a DAO on NEAR for an UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage
Palmeros de Chacao is an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity
they take care of the Avila, a sacred mountain for them (and for me too), part of their collaboration to all of us (for free) is planting palms and trees.
They lack of resources, and I am helping them to organize in order to ask for funding.
Find more developers established in Caracas
We already reach out one University: UNIVERSIDAD METROPOLITANA
And we are going for another top: Universidad Central de Venezuela, Universidad Simon Bolivar, Universidad Santa Maria, Universidad Catolica Andres Bello.
Host events to onboard Artists for an NFT Venezuelan marketplace on NEAR
We get the interest of a few artists that will invite others, teach them about the benefits of deploying an NFT marketplace on NEAR, and do the technical work for them.
This November We will start a Blockchain Course with Tecnologia Financiera
Upgrade/Improve our educational Material
Improve and add more videos on youtube and more online Guides about trading, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies from NEAR.
T-shirts with the NEAR and BEER logo and stickers for BEER accepted here, about we accept crypto in the local pubs we are friends of, starting with our own, and we will be waiting for the community to support the project by approving funds.
I am very grateful to @claudioac; he guided me into what was the main goals of the community and made use of my skills. He trusted me and valued my work in the Near Hispano Guild. People like him are there to make you grow and take the better from you, a great leader.
I have been working and learning with the NEAR Hispano Guild as a council, and thanks to the NCD Program in Spanish by the NEAR HISPANO Guild, we are now receiving more than 20 new devs from one University in Caracas, so we soon will have NEAR developers around.
Also, a big thank you to @Sofia_Alum and the OWS Guild, it really helped me build the team, I started inviting people to opportunities as it is part of the assigned tasks, and then I organized them to have a bigger positive impact.
I have to mention @satojandro AVB and thank him for telling me about NEAR (and OXEN). He has always been very into the crypto community, having all these tips. Thank you, friend.
Thanks to all the exceptional members of this community I had the pleasure to cross by, I have been able to build and lead a team here in Venezuela. We are right now a good squad with different skills that complement, so we are certain we can achieve our goals, as we have been doing.
