[Approved] Meet the Latino builders of NEAR | Diffusion of NEAR content in Spanish

Do you want to know who builds in NEAR? Do you want to know how to develop in NEAR? What benefits are there to develop in NEAR?


Open Web Academy is an educational DAO (see DAO dashboard) that runs Web 3 learning programs to teach people how to develop and launch decentralized projects; develops IRL events to incorporate new web builders 3 and promotes the creation of enable solutions on NEAR Protocol for 10 months and now wants to scale with the recruitment of enthusiasts and builders of NEAR by creating educational content that both experienced and non-experienced Learn about the NEAR Protocol, about the Spanish-speaking developers who contribute to the ecosystem, and about how to start building for NEAR.

Our team includes:

OWA social networks.

Background :mujer_oficina_trabajadora:

Since the creation of the OWA, the internal team has been in charge of producing and disseminating graphic and multimedia materials through social networks that allowed the approach of interested parties to integrate into parallel projects on NEAR.

Lets go for it! keep building from Latam!

The education about NEAR in another languages it’s so important to grow up the community, this project it’s an excellent opportunity to make the Latin-American community closer to the web 3 world and NEAR Protocol!


Hey @irvingcong thanks for the proposal. We have new guidelines and a new application form in place after our relaunch in November. Can you check those out and submit the form so we can do a proper application review?

In the meantime, while I do see the need for more Spanish language content, I’ll note that your distribution channels are very early stage. Neither the Twitter you posted nor the one from your site exists. While I do get the need for funding to create significant amounts of content, we have a reduced budget and are focused on funding fewer projects now. We’re looking to fund those that demonstrate very high quality, some evidence of traction and the team’s ability to execute on the marketing proposed, as well as alignment with the NEAR Foundation’s KPIs outlined in the guidelines.

Additionally, there’s an argument to be made that it’s a better use of Community funds to translate existing high-quality content vs. funding the creation of new content. Do you have any plans to translate existing educational content out there?

hello @so608
Thank you for the prompt response and feedback you gave to this proposal.
Your comment allowed us to see that there were old errors in the URLs in the writing. I describe the changes made below:

  • I have updated the Twitter URL (we recently changed the URL for better positioning).
  • I have added our Medium profile.
  • Our site had a redirection problem, which has now been resolved and can be viewed.
  • I added links to other projects related to NEAR that we have carried out, with the intention that I visualize the quality of our work.
  • The tally form was completed the same day as the forum post.
  • We started working on a parallel proposal about the translation of already created content, as we found that comment very interesting. I(see soon a new proposal related to translation).

After this, I hope the proposal can be reviewed again and that it can be taken into account that the amounts requested will help create more and higher quality content, compared to the content that we currently generate in a non-profit way.
Also comment that our social networks, in addition to being in Spanish, are of a technical nature and that they contain 100% organic followers.

I am waiting for more comments. Thanks again!


@so608 hello and happy new year. I am waiting for new feedback! :sweat_smile:

Hi irving,

Thanks for your patience and proposal.

I support this proposal. Here are some of the reasoning and notes:

  • OWA has been an early contributor to the NEAR ecosystem. The amount of quality work the team consistently puts out is the main driver behind most of the adoption NEAR has had in Latam.
  • OWA members have demonstrated true commitment to NEAR and its success. The ratio of funding OWA has received to output puts every other regional hub to shame.
  • I’ve witnessed how OWA recruited and trained several participants from LATAM region into Stake Wars, many of which are not joining Mainnet. I can’t stress how important this is for decentralisation and for the sustainability of these communities long term. I’ll also note that several of the full time community support members who assisted others in SW discord came from NEAR Hispano, trained by OWA.
  • I also have first hand experience meeting eager web3 builders in Colombia and referring them to the NEAR Hispano, OWA communities. This experience highlighted the important of local language content, in particular learning content.
  • First comes training. Then comes building. Now we need awareness. I support this proposal as a reasonable way to give visibility to existing projects - increasing their chances of success - as well as attracting more learners and builders.

The only thing I will note is that perhaps the proposal is too ambitious to start. Perhaps the team may want to narrow down some of the categories - prioritise highest impact and expand over time.

Keep up the good work,



Hi @irvingcong + team – thanks for the follow up. I appreciate the update to the links and response to feedback posted here.

While I agree with @satojandro that the proposal may have too wide a scope and your marketing efforts may be more effective if narrowed in the future on doing fewer things at a higher quality vs. trying to be on all the platforms, I also agree that Spanish language content is extremely valuable to the ecosystem. You also have a track record of working within the ecosystem, have demonstrated the ability to convey technical information and concepts in a high quality way and have also a unique approach in your live building sessions (I especially applaud unique approaches to content like this).

Happy to support for a month so we can evaluate the progress. I could see us asking to refine/change some things in the future based on performance as marketing and content are always an iterative process.

You still need one more council member to support for approval. Best of luck!


You can now

1)Proceed to Poll on AstroDAO.
2)Once the poll is approved, you need to submit THIS form Ironclad.


The poll in astroDAO has already been created​:white_check_mark:, thanks to everyone who evaluated this proposal. Rest assured that we will take into account all the feedback you gave us to improve the dissemination of the valuable content that we already generate. In a few weeks we will be presenting the corresponding report, where we hope the growth and importance of content for the enthusiastic and development community of LATAM can be seen reflected with numbers.
Thanks again! :muscle:

@irvingcong congrats on the approval!!

Not much of a Spanish speaker but know my way around content.

Love to learn more on how I can contribute :slight_smile:
