[APPROVED] - Gambiarra DAO funding for June 2022



Project Status: Proposal

DAO/Council Members




Destination address: gambiarra-dao.sputnik-dao.near

Total Requested Funding Amount: 5000 USD in Near/DAI

Funding Period: June / 2022

Our Introduction: [Introduction] Gambiarra DAO

Objective: The main objective of this set of projects is to continue Gambiarra’s work and to build Gambiarra, NEAR, and Mintbase presence and visibility on Brazilian NFTworld, by thematic exhibitions, courses, tutorials, experimental art, and marketing materials in Portuguese and hopefully soon, also in english. Our intention is that the Brazilian visual art community get to know GAMBIARRA and get into NEAR blockchain through our gallery on Mintbase. And for this, we are building more and more awareness concerning our gallery, our classes, and our art which is the main objective of this set of projects.

Justification (benefits): The relevance of this set of projects is precisely to grow a large collective of artists in the Internet media and in the eyes of their fellow artists, who can also work together. This kind of visibility is essential to a blockchain that needs to expand into visual arts and in the Brazilian NFT community, which is pretty large. Beyond being important to NEAR and to GAMBIARRA artists, these projects are also important to help the development of Mintbase in Brazil, which is an important NFT market in the NEAR, as we have also been producing tutorial videos in Portuguese about it and stimulating the minting scene there. Our set of projects is also important for the community as a whole, because it brings more rewards to the system, and therefore makes the community more in touch with the GAMBIARRA Community and the DAO.

Timeline: June 7th – 30st

The NEAR Protocol has seen so many activities and events arise within its ecosystem. This development can only be cognizant of the fact that the NEAR protocol is conveniently expanding and providing solutions for individuals within the web 3 ecosystem, such as our NFTs, our wallets and numerous DApps. We at the GAMBIARRA Guild/DAO have observed these developments for a while and have decided to contribute our quota in love and gratitude for the NEAR Protocol towards helping it expand conveniently in areas where it is seeking more engagement and traction, which is Brazilian Visual Arts on Mintbase NEAR.

In MAY we had the honor to have the following projects quoted on the report bellow:

Highlights and metrics of May:

“Gambiarra DAO Invites”, created by our curator @ghini is the newest implement which is to invite other DAOs to exhibit on the sides of the Gambiarra Gallery building, in a collaborative movement between DAOs, in order to provide an exhibition space within the cryptovoxels metaverse for DAOs that do not have a gallery there. The first guest was Octopode DAO with the Brazilian Music Near Project, wich was sensational!!! For June we’ll have a partnership with The Clan DAO.

We had four exhibitions that totalized 41 (fourty one) NFTs exhibited which represent only part of the achievement made by DAO in terms of metrics, because the events promoted generated a considerable number in terms of mints, a total of 869, information that was passed to us by @mariamintbase, which represents 10% of all the mints of the store in just one month. From June on we will monitor through prints of our profile and we expect to reach an average amount of 500 mints.


1- Green Exhibition - 20 participants (still accepting registrations)

2- Mintbase Sunday 7th edition - 25 participants

3- Back to 80’s - 20 participants

4- Bounty B&W - 15 participants

5- Brazilian Music at Near 2nd edition - 8 direct participants

We also highlight that there will be one more floor in our gallery building at cryptovoxels, to be used for the DAO events which is the second floor, used until now by FEMINU DAO, that will be moving to another space next to ours, allowing the whole building to be used by GAMBIARRA DAO.

Exactly because it is a relatively large store with 195 minters, Gambiarra for many months has been developing a work with the artists, made especially by @macieira so that they are participating in the exhibitions with new NFTs and this has given a very positive result. We believe this is an important step after doing all those onboarding because of the exhibition FEMINU. Taking care to follow up with these Nearcomers so that they remain active in the blockchain is of special importance for the whole ecosystem.

Find below the projects that the GAMBIARRA DAO has outlined to June:

Love to all community


Hello Gambiarra!

As we transition as a community and prepare ourselves to give bigger reports back to NEAR Foundation for the metrics of our Creatives DAO Community, we would like to ask if you could add in a section at the end of your proposal around your expected metrics for success. This can be things likes number of participants expected, what outcomes, which/how many products, etc. Basically consolidating your outcomes into metrics. This will make it easier to relate to those number when you make your next report and when we make a larger report for the community as a whole.

We need the community to share metrics on their proposals in an effort to collectively prepare to approach NF to prove our value. I believe there is a way to do this with ease, we can help if you need help, our intention is for everyone to unify and gain stability in this moment. Next month we will implement a clear guideline of what is expected.

Thank you so much!


Hello @adrianseneca! We at Gambiarra are united in this movement to make the community better and better. Please take a look if this is what was missing…

Thank you so much!


Thanks so much for the updates! Please add your metrics in your report for June! Happy to say that this proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, so it is approved by the Community Moderators. Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO astrodao [link: Astro ] so that the council can vote. When and if the vote of the council is ‘yes’, approach NF for your payout proposal, following this guidelines: [GUIDE] Proposal & Payout process for Creatives DAO


@adrianseneca Thank you Adrian, we will do it!
