Hi @anmatig, thank you for your proposal, I see your social media is not very active, this month we have already supported several E tier proposals, unfortunately I am not ready to support you this month.

Hi @ihor, I saw that you joined the telegram group. These days we were very active there, today was quiet the community because it was congested the network while they finished the sharding update. Today I was going to make a call to the community about NEAR wallets , but I had to move it to Thursday because I finished talking to the Globe DAO team at 4 am my local time and I moved the agenda to Thursday, because I feel exhausted.

I tell you that at the beginning of February we did not exceed more than 15 people in the group, now there are more than 50 and in that same month we made contact with more than 100 people to whom we made onboarding with the NEAR Here wallet in telegram, some are in the main group of NEAR Colombia, others in non-blockchain community group that are mainly traders who operate in the stock market and have been motivated to participate in crypto and blockchain of NEAR.

I have excel report of wallets with user and I can attach the Tx from NEARblocks. I tell you this because it is a way to demonstrate the KPI required for Tier E which is a minimum of 7 tx and 15 new wallets and we have exceeded that number.

I understand that we are a new community that with the guidelines of this DAO we comply, we have too much enthusiasm to do the proposed activities with desire to grow with the community, make presncial event, with merchandising with the NEAR brand, NEAR tokens awards, a bag of 100 or + so they can make tx and explore the ecosystem of the budget, which is not to stay waiting to see the time pass without being able to execute these good things to do and it is a shame to receive that answer :frowning:

Based on your information, I support the April proposal for now, with the condition that you guys are active in the community in March.
By the end of March, the community must be active on Twitter, and TG, otherwise, we will not allocate the funds.


@HaiVu thanks for your support!

That’s right that’s the commitment of us as DAO, count on it.

We will comply with activating even more twitter posts and doing + activities from telegram until the end of March!


Hello Team,

Thank you for your proposal. I am happy to approve on a similar condition that we would love to see good numbers by the end of March. Good job till now, I have seen you have grown with good numbers in just a month.

Good Luck.
