Hello NEAR community,
A month ago, we introduced NEAR Malaysia to the community, and outlined our roadmap here:
1. ORGANIC TRACTION SO FAR
- A week ago, we had our first virtual event, a Staking Party for Asia in partnership with Metapool
35 people came to the event!
Near Malaysia attended a Near overview by Sekolah Krypto (Malaysian youtuber) and gave a short speech on Near technology. About 15 wallets were created in that event.
Here is the traction we have gotten so far @ Near Malaysia:
- 146 followers @ Twitter account: https://twitter.com/NEAR_malaysia
- 111 members @Telegram group: Telegram: Contact @NEAR_Malaysia
- 40 new NEAR wallets created for Malaysians (via Telegram group & staking party)
- Website up and running! : mynear.org
Here is a funding proposal for the remainder of March and for April month:
2. GOALS & ACTIVITIES AHEAD
In the following month and a half we want to grow the community and get them more involved, by:
- Hosting AMA & webinars with Sekolah Krypto and Bicara Krypto. Special emphasis giing on educational content about NEAR protocol and underlying technology, as well as on educational options available at Near University.
- Appeal to other Malaysian social media influencers (e.g Crypto Mamak @ Tiktok) to broaden our reach.
- Hosting AMA & Events with Octopus network and Atocha protocol, two projects in Near founded by Malaysians
- Host giveaway & Quizzes, following the great initiative of NEAR Indonesia and @derymars, a guild we are proactively benchmarking and learning from everyday.
- Set up a Telegram Bot
- Record a step-by-step video guide on how to create and fund a NEAR wallet
- Prepare our first physical event, as follows
B. Key speakers
C. Presentation material
D. Venue, food, logistics.
E. Partners involvement / giveaways, etc.
In particular, I would like to give a sneak peek of the event we are preparing. Most of the Guild’s time is spend on making sure this event will be a game-changer for the Guild and for all participants! Venue quotations are almost ready, next step will be presentation content and merchandise.
3. REACH-RELATED KPIs
Till end of April, we are expecting to reach (at least):
• 500 members on Telegram and Twitter
• 100 new NEAR Wallets by Malaysians
• 100 attendees to physical event
• 20 subscribers to NCE & NCD (Near Certified Entrepreneur & Near Certified Developer)
Growing organically over the last month has been fun but also a bit slow. I have funded some initiatives from my pocket, like a 0.1 NEAR to each Malaysian verified wallet. We are convinced that we can grow exponentially over the next couple months by having a smart use of the above financial resources, notably by having some viral campaigns and with our first physical event.
This is our first funding proposal, there will obviously be several things to improve / include / clarify, tagging @Jessica @chronear @FritzWorm @derymars @simeon4real @Sofia_Alum to hear your opinion.
