Martin is a person of action. I am looking forward to engage more with the community the NEAR CDMX team are building. Also, the experiences can help open new nodes in other parts of México and Latam.
Good evening @cryptocredit,
Here is a list of our team and partners. A few of them have written in this post already.
Some of them I am still working on getting them to create their Gov. forum account.
We have a few core contributors and a large network of partners. Here are some of the key folks.
Happy to support this proposal on a monthly basis with monthly reports. Could potentially move to quarterly depending on the total amount requested.
I’m curious to learn about the distribution channels, how would people find out about the upcoming Meetups?
As a side note, I will be in CDMX until May 7th, looking forward to connecting in person. I believe CDMX is a great city and could easily become an international hub in the same way that Miami has (but much, much more affordable).
Hi @Montero – Thanks for your proposal. You’ve gotten a lot of good support on the Forum for this project, and I can see that you have a solid track record of community building.
I agree with @satojandro and @cryptocredit – if you can update the proposal to a monthly funding request and give details on why the funding amount is what it is (people usually submit a spreadsheet outlining budget details/costs for events), then I will be able to support it.
Without a detailed breakdown of the expenses, I cannot put my support behind this.
I can see from the comments you’ve put that together already.
Even a loose outline on the proposal would help the rest of the community understand your project budget allocation.
Before giving my approval, I need to see this.
Thank you for your feed back. I have edited the proposal to me monthly.
I will create a spreadsheet with the cost break down.
Here is an overview of the full strategy (way beyond meetups) for the Near Mexico City community that we have been bulding. Near Mexico City Strategy. - Google Docs
Proposal has been approved. You can now proceed with the Poll Proposal on AstroDAO so Council members can formally vote there:
After the Poll has been passed, and you’ve completed KYC with NEAR Foundation, you can proceed to request payout directly with them.
Good morning, please follow these steps to get approval on Astro DAO
Thank you. I will head over to Astro DAO.
I did my KYC with the Near Foundation about 2 months ago.
Hi, sorry for the delay. I have been a bit sick with food poisoning of late.
I am feeling better now and back at work.
Here is my Poll Proposal:
I am following up on this to see if I need to do anything else.
Wishing y’all excellent health and a wonderful day!
Did you submit the Google Form requesting payment to the NEAR Foundation after the poll got approved?
Hi @satojandro, good afternoon. Don’t worry about it. The issue has been solved.
After the poll was approved no one on the Marketing DAO council sent this form or gave clear next steps. Your advice was “After the Poll has been passed, and you’ve completed KYC with NEAR Foundation, you can proceed to request payout directly with them.” Them who? You did not even bother to vote yes or no. The Community Pay Out Form would have been beneficial to share, even via a private message. It seems that would be part of the responsibility of being entrusted with the position in the Marketing DAO. I followed up a couple of times. I got no clear response. There is some clear room to improve this process here.
Thanks to the kind help of someone on here, who is not part of the Marketing DAO council and who actually took a couple of minutes to clearly explain the process to me and send the form to fill out I finally got to fill it out, got a reply, signed the agreement and now waiting for the transfer.
Have a good weekend.
Hey @Montero – sorry this was your experience. We are always looking to improve processes, so the feedback is very helpful. Thank you for posting.
For you or anyone who is reading this in the future, the next steps & payment instructions (KYC, Google form, links, etc.) are available in the post pinned at the top of the Forum and we encourage anyone who needs help to reach out directly to any of us on the council. Council members are:
Thanks and have a good weekend!
Thank you @so608
Sorry for the bluntness. I´m generally pretty direct. Also I have had multiple bad experiences with the leadership team of NEAR Hispano. So that affected my response. I wrote a private message to Alejando to communicate this in more detail to him. Which is what I should have done to begin with. Only replied on here to the relevant issue of being confused about the process.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Good evening! Looking forward to seeing report . Thanks
Here is an update. Given where the Web3 world is at. We made a shift from general meetups and onboarding to focus on fostering the builder community. Partnering with key partners to help us with this. The only way to get out of a bear market is to build products and services of deep and long-term value. That is how you build a strong, healthy, and legitimate market.
- We hosted a dinner with Edge & Node (The 1st protocol to integrate with The Graph was NEAR) https://twitter.com/Montero/status/1537824573873340416?t=_59GyDflKYlUUG2FT1vnSA&s=09
2, We hosted a meetup and a lunch with the Build Space team. In order to start creating more worships to support folks who want to learn to build. https://twitter.com/fiavera_/status/1544139571511836672
We introduced the Robotos NFT team to the Mintbase team and we are working collaboration between Rotobotos & Cine Tonala using Mintbase & MintTkts. Doing workshops there for creatives in film, music, and gaming.
We supported the 1st event of the Web3 community in Merida, Espacio Cripto: Merida. with a $250 USD sponsorship to support their local builders. Espacio Cripto Mérida - Google Slides
I have just been given a VIP ticket to https://www.tractionconf.io/ as a guest of launch VC. In Vancouver. To present our work & strategy for Web3 Builders in México City & the Vancouver tech bridge.
More info & details later.
Thank you kindly!
Hello Martin, congratulations on your proposal approval, count with me for Meetups help, I live in Queretaro, but I can help to create the community in CDMX.
Thanks for the report and update - totally agree with your sentiment about:
