Total Requested Funding Amount: $4500 / 802.139 (@$5.61)
We at KIL DAO are trying to push boundaries in terms of events in the local metaverse and we’ve proven that we’re able to after successfully organizing our second live poetry event with KIL DAO. In addition to that, KIL DAO is thrilled to announce the success of the first Volume 1 of MetaStraits! In our last proposal CreativesDao approved support we requested to execute our idea of pairing 2 artists from 2 different countries in Asia for each Metaverse performance to achieve a cross pollination of fans in attendance just like the model of a physical music festival. We paired Singaporean Pop Punk band ‘Sign of Five’, which has opened in Singapore for notable acts like Simple Plan and Yellow Card, with Malaysian RnB singer Christian Theseira. We saw the desired crosspollination fans who remained in the venue for both performances, onboarding them to the NEAR ecosystem and listing their NFTs. With a mission of using Web3 not just as a platform to bring talent to new audiences, but supporting talent to forge their own regional support systems for touring and collaboration through the Metaverse, KIL DAO aims to continue the series with Volume 2 of MetaStraits on the last Sunday of June, with a view to continue consistently featuring bigger and better talent and onboarding their audiences into the NEAR ecosystem every month.

The first is that we noticed that you have been receiving funding from Creatives DAO since January but didnt make your ASTROdao until April and have not used it until this month. Would you be willing to expand on the reasoning for this, how you have been distributing your funds and how you have ensured decentralization within your community these last six months?
Second is, 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.
Hey @adrianseneca sorry it took a while for us to reply this message. Thanks for raising those points with us as I am more than happy to elaborate and clarify this matter with you. First things first, as I mentioned to @FritzWorm we were unable to use the DAO platform the past couple of months as we were new to the platform and we did not onboard it accordingly hence on why it did not function properly. We were unsure on how it works, I have tried seeking assistance but I was told to join the astro dao group on Telegram but did not obtain much from there either. However, I would take full responsibility for that as I should have continued to seek help from the Creatives DAO which is what i intend to do moving forward. In addition to that, based on the new payout process given by the NEAR foundation, we were receiving funds directly to our NEAR wallet instead of our DAO wallet so it made it easier for us to transfer funds from there and not through Astro Dao. In a matter of transparency, I have attached proof’s of the payouts given to our DAO community over the past few months,
@vandal and @netunoblu will be able to vouch for us on this as well since they have been both receiving payouts via our wallet keepitlocal.near. With that being said, we intend to use our DAO platform moving forward as a matter of transparency and to make our process of onboarding and payouts easier.
KIL DAO has sucessfully onboarded over 30 new members to our NEAR ecosystem over the last 3 months and it can be viewed via the our report below,
On top of that, we have also onboarded over 9 South East Asian artist from MY and Singapore to the NEAR platform, KIL DAO and the @NxM community including
We have also launched our official our very own KIL NFT store via @Mintbase where we have given our over 20 Free NFT’S to our community along with gifting a NEAR account. We have also received an average attendance of 100 Pax per show, I have attached the date from our last show below,
We hope we have provided sufficient information and clarification to the Creatives community, please let me know if I have left anything out. I have also added the metrics of success required for our proposal. Thanks you for the opportunity and we look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks Adrian
Thank you so much for sharing with us. We understand it is hard to learn the systems sometimes but want to clarify that in order to be considered a DAO in this community it means you are actively using your AstroDAO. I am relaying all this info to the moderators.
The last questions we had were around the event management fees. Could you explain why a one hour event is $700 for management and a 30min performance costs $500 in management?
No worries, I am glad to be able to clarify things and we assure you and the moderators that we will our Astro Dao will be active moving forward. We have done so much in space and we aim to create more experiences for KIL DAO and NEAR.
As for the question you had regarding the budget, the one hour event is $700 because we have to handle 3 acts and designate 2 people from our council to handle all 3 acts, our production crew and the venue coordination. However the second event only has two artist from different regions so we usually designate 3 council members to coordinate each act and crew. Hence on why we allocated a budget of $500 for our council members from Malaysia and Singapore.
I do realize that I have made a mistake for our first event as it should state 3 poets for 200 USD each which is what we did for our previous events. I have made the change accordingly. Let me know if we have missed out on anything else. Thanks Adrian
Thanks so much for your response! I am thinking perhaps giving a line item budget will help the moderators understand the pricing of this. Could you define what tasks come with handling the acts, production crew and venue coordination are?
Could you also clarify what coordinating each act and crew requires?
Thanks so much for the updates! This proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, so it is approved by the Community Moderators. Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO Astrodao, so that the council can vote. When and if the vote of the council is ‘yes’, approach NF for your payout proposal, following this guideline: [New Process] Community Payouts.
