Hi Createbase Team

I’m not sure if I am doing it the right way to apply for budget. Let me know how to proceed.

I’d like to apply for new budget for January-June 2022 for Save The Clan.

  • Exhibitions like NearCon or others
    working hours: 2h per week
    Budget: 80 USD in NEAR (480 USD in NEAR per 6 months)

  • Proactive sales approach to get more artists on board
  • Personal education calls (usually one hour per artists)
    Working hours per week: 5h per week

    working hours per week: 2h
    Budget: 80 USD in NEAR (480 USD in NEAR per 6 months)

TOTAL Budget for 6 months = 5520 USD in NEAR
TOTAL BUDGET near drop links: 100 NEAR (1 NEAR each - not 7 like in the past, too many scammers)

→ Work will be done by @claudinhabelha

Thank you ladies for checking my budget-application: @reginamintbase & @marianeu


Hey @claudinhabelha

I think you should open a guild, or a DAO, for ArfikaBurn.

Why? All these actions are really nice and needed for AfrikaBurn, even NEAR, but they do not directly work for mintbase.

What do you think @tabear, isn’t this a perfect dao set up? even with 6 months roadmap?



Hey! Thanks for the link!

Creating a DAO or Guild sounds like the best thing to do for 2 reasons:

  • The Creatives DAO does not fund projects from individuals but only other DAOs or Guilds, and only on a monthly basis
  • not sure how it works within the community fund/if this would be approved, but if you set up a DAO/Guild, and as you already have a plan for the next 6 months, you could also apply directly for a grant through the new tiering system:

hi @marianeu and @tabear

Thank you for your information and the links.
I will set up a new business and will integrate Save The Clan.

But until then it is an indendent project. I don’t think we should open a guild or a DAO only for 6 months. Because I am already doing the work since January and will do until June. After that it will be a different set-up.

What do you think?

Thank you for the clarification.
I believe you received funds from the community fund previously, just for clarification: The Creatives DAO does not fund projects/work that has already been done in the past; projects are discussed and approved first, and then the work will be rewarded. But as the Community Squad handled your previous proposal, it seems that all is sorted for now. Looking forward seeing how this develops!

@tabear actually @claudinhabelha wants to be paid from now until august for her work, and we from MintbaseDAO believe that it is better for AfrikaBurn to open their own DAO instead of relying on MintbaseDAO.

As you can see, they have a guild (over 100 artists in the stores) + they have a guild leader @claudinhabelha.

Perfect, I agree a DAO sounds reasonable but if @claudinhabelha knows that the process will be finished in 6 months and she prefers to set up the DAO later, it is her call I would say. But generally a DAO for those kind of projects sounds reasonable :slight_smile:

hi @marianeu and @tabear

we actually have this from last year: Astro
But we shouldn’t do it like this. Because Claudia Peter, a burner from the community, is doing the SAVE THE CLAN initiative, not AfrikaBurn as an organisation. And due to their Non-Profit-Organisation guidelines we are not allowed to use their name.

Therefore I am gonna open now a new DAO with my private NEAR wallet. Is that allowed?
I will call the DAO “Save The Clan for AfrikaBurn” and then make a council group as well as a member group. ok?

How to proceed from there?

That sounds good. I saw the DAO you are managing had 433N taken out of the dao (which was sent from communitysquad to the dao before).

We can also see that this money was sent to claudiapeter.near here: NEAR Explorer | Transaction

I am just trying to understand if the community squad gave you arounf 5k USD in NEAR in october, and if you need more than that to cover your work?

Hi @marianeu & @tabear

Yes you are partly right :wink:
It was 3000 USD that was agreed with Yessin - for the work I did from June to December, because I worked 4 days a week only for Save The Clan. Most of the work I did voluntarily because I love AfrikaBurn so much and the 3000 USD was a deal with Caro and Yessin who agreed to pay that as a “salary” for my work last year.

But what I did wrong last year was, that we called the DAO AfrikaBurn and that we used their near wallet. AfrikaBurns principles and company guidelines require that the Save The Clan initiative is independent from the organisation.

Therefore we would need to open a new DAO called SAVE THE CLAN and handle it through my account. The work I listed above is the work that has been done already in 2022 and will be done for the next 6 months.

Can we proceed like that?

Dear Claudia,

So you can set up your new DAO and get funds directly from @creativesdao-council @marketingdao-council or the community squad.

What do you think?

hi @marianeu

I don’t have experience in this. Which of the 3 would you recommend?
And what is the next step?

I open the DAO on astrodao right? Or another platform? And there I add the council group for the voting. Right?

You should get in contact with the @creativesdao-council they will help you!


Hey @claudinhabelha,

You open the DAO on Astro DAO, yes, you need 5N to set it up for storage.

Depending on the nature and plans of your project you can choose the vertical you want to apply for funding from.

Creatives DAO has office hours every Monday at 8PM GMT, so if you are interested I would recommend joining the group and the call directly in TG.

Marketing DAO funds Marketing proposals, i will link @David_NEAR & @jlwaugh here.

hi @David_NEAR and @jlwaugh

I hope you are both well :slight_smile:

I’d like to set up the DAO with you, if you like the idea and the project. Would you like to have call first or should I open the DAO and add you 2 as councils? Let me know what you prefer.


Hi @tabear, @David_NEAR, @jlwaugh and @marketingdao-council

Do you have any news how I should proceed?
I really need to apply for that fund as soon as possible.

@tabear or do we have another options?

Hey, who is funding this? CreativesDAO?
