Experience

Our team was formed more than two years ago in the Near Protocol ecosystem. At the beginning, we were members of the Degens Army, which was a rather chaotic place, there was no reporting, strict KPI’s, survival systems, and so on.

During this time, we changed all the mistakes, established predictable KPIs, a clear vision, and provided accurate reporting to the community. Our principles have always been and remain: transparency, honesty and accountability.

To keep it short, you can learn more about our experience in detail by checking out *paragraph 1 in our charter:

Budget size after launch NDC v1.0 [interim period] :ok::white_check_mark:

We are glad that NDC 1.0 has officially launched, although not in full, as the community expected.

Due to budget reduction, NDC Degens has decided to reduce the requested funds for this stage by 30% of the previous amount.

Changes made:

  • The number of members in the NDC Degens main team has been reduced from 15 to 12 people.
  • Remuneration for leaders has been decreased.
  • The development rewards have been reduced and will be implemented in a simplified form — Widget + Smart Contract (user’s wallet record).
  • Public Degens payments have been reduced.

We have successfully reduced the requested funds by 30%. However, we have not reduced the amount of work, and we aim to increase our metrics by at least 40% in the first 2 months after our new budget is approved.

Plans to achieve the goals set by KPIs remain unchanged and will be implemented in full accordance with our charter.

What is the length of Commitment to Delivering Your Project?

Currently, the NDC Degens initiative is fully operational, except for Public Degens.

Will your team be working on this project full time?

Yes. Leaders 30-40 hrs/week, Main Degens Group 20-30 hrs/week, public degens - part time.

Will your team be fully renumerated from this budget?

Yes.

Project/DAO longevity

Does your project/DAO require one-time or continuous funding?

Our initiative requires monthly funding.

Will your DAO/Project device way of sustaining itself after this round of funding?

In 2022, we tried to become self-sufficient. However, due to market and ecosystem conditions, we encountered a challenge as ecosystem projects were deficient in marketing funding. Nevertheless, we remain committed to striving for independence in the future.

What are the possible roadblocks to the success of your project/DAO?

Low community involvement could pose a challenge for the NDC Degens initiative. However, we are determined to encourage users to actively engage with the ecosystem and join both the NDC Degens WG community and our initiative.

Degens show huge results! I think that with Degens DAO, it will become something even bigger!
Degens is an excellent marketing tool for the ecosystem. I don’t think that so many views, in such a narrow crypto topic, can be bought cheaper.
