Hi @Dacha it would be great to understand what other information we should provide in the proposal for the Non Fungible Conference in April that hasn’t been shared yet. As @marianeu mentioned, we’ve been in touch with the team and answered all the questions in regards to the funds we received for the event. If there are any other details you need, please let us know.
In regards to our Grants program, this is specifically for folks building products using our SDK and, again as Maria said, we’re not allocating these yet. The funding we’re requesting here is to support creatives in the community and onboarding efforts too. Happy to answer any questions you have & looking forward to getting your feedback on this @Dacha
We might need to talk about this. Because when we give out funds to onboard new creatives, via linkdrop, that needs to happen prior to the event. I am 100% on your side that the work is paid for after it is completed, but the funds for onboarding are always given out prior. and we can’t block them from onboarding 100 people because we need to wait for the next month, right??
the payout for 300 usd for mutha was proposed in JULY already - which is why is in the july funding proposal instead of june.
if that’s not possible, i’ll redo it, but there is people depending on this money, as you know.
@marianeu I completely understand and in this instance it does make sense, but these are also guidelines agreed on and applied to the entire community of Creatives DAO. As moderators, our job is to make sure these are being followed. Inviting some other mods in here to see if they have any input on the conversation @creativesdao-mods
First off, I want to apologize that this converstation is starting so late. I usually don’t review your proposals and saw no one else has fully attended to it yet so here we are!
I love how much you support and engage the community through your proposals, its truly so awesome!
I am noticing a few things that make understanding reports a little difficult. The first is that not every project has an official report, some are incomplete and ongoing and it requires a long scroll through the comments to tell how much has gotten done. The second is I cannot find your overall metrics anywhere. Would you be willing to help make this process easier by creating an official monthly report consolidating this information and collecting your metrics in the future months? This will in turn give the Creatives DAO metrics to put into an overall report. Please feel free to guide me if I am incorrect with any of the following information, just trying to understand
From your June Proposal:
I see this in the June proposal but am having a hard time finding the report for the June Events:
I see this in the June proposal but am having a hard time finding the report for the June accomplishments:
I see this in the June proposal but am having a hard time finding a report:
I see this in the June proposal and I believe there reporting information is in the comments but it is hard to tell:
In the June Report:
For example this project which got 258N:
The only reporting I see is this comment which does not feel sufficient:
I also could not find a report for the work done for the payout given to trojanhorse15.near from this project:
I also see that you have two proposals in your proposal for this month that are incomplete. As it is the 15th already, would you mind requesting for these in August?
yes - for following months we can bring on metrics as of how many wallets created, and nfts minted with creatives support. I think they won’t be 100% accurate as we can’t really keep track of thousands of smart contracts but they’ll give a good impression for sure!
I understand your concern because of the little feedback to each project we are able to provide each month. this happens because so many projects happen simultaneously that we can’t control the timeframes. We only pay after services are done - but we are not stressing them if they don’t respect their milestone - dates. That’s because if they don’t do it - they won’t get paid. So it’s kind of their ball to decide when to do things.
We have been accepting proposals, and paying them out after controlling things are done. The proof or very simplified “”“report”"" of that is the mention in the reports of the dao in the end of each month.
Now I will answer every mention you made - thank you for the attention!
this is the report:
nothing was ever paid out! they did not develop their app / adapt prices to what we thought was appropriate - so that’s in standby until further notice!
the report to this
is the amount of payout we do every month - as can be checked in the dao payouts per month for articles
for nearhub we are waiting for Jeff @jefedeoro to write a proposal - but the lands are built. did not want to spoiler but will to prove my point:
these are the three mintbase parcels being built. each month we will pay a part of it. We are building places to rent out to creatives to do exhibitions & for us to do community callls and foster the near ecosystem.
Quick comment from Community: Why Mintbase DAO continues to request rewards from Community treasure, if raised over 7,5 million dollars from Coinbase Ventures, Libertus Capital, Sino Global Capital, Animoca Brands, Woodstock Fund, and Fundamental Labs, among others?
I believe Mintbase DAO is already a self-sustainable organization.
@marianeu thank you so much for responding to all my inquires, I know it was a lot as I try to get an understanding!
This totally makes sense and is a great way to go about it. Are unused funds tracked and then dedicated to there projects that were approved?
You all have a unique process of working with community and I would love to see you all to continue to be able to do that with ease while also being able to provide moderators with adequate information with ease as well. We are happy to approve your proposal and think moving forward we should figure out the best way to make this happen, especially with the new mods who will be taking things over without myself and the other old mods very soon
Here some of the highlights we see in your proposal:
follows the guidelines
invests so much into community projects and engagement!
contribution to consistently growing the NEAR ecosystem
