Backlog of Proposals:

We are currently working through the backlog of Proposals and expect to resume normal service shortly. Thank you for your patience!


Previous Remuneration

Remuneration changes was put on hold during the review (Previous Post))

The DAO council discussed remuneration with NF and it was agreed that the council members will receive a revised payment of $2000 in NEAR tokens per month. This will be backdated to September 2022.

The Marketing DAO is now ready and able to help the community achieve their marketing goals and we look forward to seeing your proposals.

Thanks to our great contributors, Community leaders for non-stop and outstanding work :muscle:

I think it would be great to unite all Near regional Communities, media partners, bloggers, marketing dao applicants under one umbrella to share 24/7 Near Marketing/ Ecosystem /Community/Events teams news in all regional, partners social media.

First (draft) list is ready

Thank @Dk_51, for your help!


Wow! its indeed a great turn around


Well done! This was a great turnout; next year will be even better.


As usual, succinct and thorough…. Let’s make it count!


Good news , all day long !


Excellent report as always.
I would like to see more support for regional guilds from another large regions.
I think it’s important to bring awareness of our ecosystem and all the processes that go on in it.


Great work guys – thank you @cryptocredit and @Dacha for sharing the update and work that the Marketing DAO has executed since relaunch. I am looking forward to the improvements and growth we are continuously working to implement via the DAO so we can help Community projects and initiatives expand alongside the NEAR ecosystem.


Great work team!

Excited for the NEAR future. Now that we have clear guidelines, and have mostly cleared the backlog, we can continue to improve and execute on the many ideas we have.



Glad we’re moving in the right direction. Supporting this! Great stuff.
