Section 7. DAO/Project Charter/White or Litepaper and Goals

  • Why do we need community?
    The significance of a crypto community for a project is immense. An engaged and supportive community can drive increased exposure and adoption of the project. It helps spread the word, attract new users, and even secure investors and partners. A vibrant community also provides valuable feedback, enhances credibility and trust in the project, and acts as a hub for collaboration and innovation. In essence, a strong community often translates into the overall success of a crypto project.

  • What are the current problems?

  1. Regional communities have strength in direct, hands-on engagement with local communities in their respective areas, but there is currently a lack of alignment between the activities of regional communities and the sustainable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

  2. There is no onboarding program for new local communities to further expand NEAR into other regions.

  3. There is still an overlap between the activities of the regional community and other DAOs, such as Developer DAO and Marketing DAO, highlighting the need for clarification of tasks and functions to avoid any redundancy.

  • How will NEAR Globe DAO solve the current issue?
    The Near globe DAO community will work very closely with HoM (House of Merit) to fulfill the goals and KPIs of the NDC (Near Digital Collective). All councils have a background in the Near Community building and have previously led a regional community. Regional communities will meet once a month and learn from each other. Our team will review all applications on a rolling basis, determine if more information is required, and then schedule a call with the team if necessary. At that point, we may revert with additional questions or ideas.

    Globe DAO will focus on implementation P-1: Widening Adoption of NEAR:
    P-1.1: Outreach to New Audiences CoA priority

    Continuous outreach to new audiences is the source of new community members and ideas. That’s why we believe this priority is a cornerstone for the NDC. There are many initiatives that fall into this category and we intentionally do not want to limit what is possible. However, here are some ideas that can be explored:

    1. Referral systems for the ecosystem.
    2. Activation of the protocol’s daily usage through gamification mechanics (for example, leaderboards).
    3. Demonstration of NEAR to non-blockchain communities:
    • TradFi apps seeking exposure to DeFi yield;
    • Traditional software companies seeking to offload security and risk to blockchain;*
    • AI/ML data provenance;*
    • Social apps with data privacy requirements and possible network effects.
    1. Education of the local communities, creators, influencers:
    • Local offline and online workshops or lectures in regional languages.
    • Catchy swag
    • Referral programs
    • Time-bound events: NEARtober fest, NEAR advent calendar.

Glad to have all of you in our NEAR Ecosystem! :green_heart:


Thank you @iamanansari @cizi31 @derymars @HaiVu @Ihor very much for great job! I will be happy to nominate your DAO to be a part of Near Digital Collective!


Thank you for your support, Sir!


Great job, Globe DAO! I really like how you’re focusing on getting more people to use NEAR. The idea of reaching out to new audiences is super important, and it’s awesome that you’re making it a priority.

I love the creative ideas you’ve suggested, like referral systems and making the daily use of NEAR more fun with games. Also, the plan to show NEAR to non-blockchain communities, like traditional finance and software companies, is really smart.

The effort to educate local communities in their own languages through workshops is a fantastic idea. And the fun stuff like cool swag, referral programs, and events like NEARtober fest and NEAR advent calendar adds a nice touch.

Overall, it looks like you’ve got a solid plan that’s not only thoughtful but also exciting. Keep up the good work, Globe DAO! Looking forward to seeing NEAR grow with these cool initiatives.


As an NDC House Of Merit member, I happy to recommend sponsorsh of GLOBE DAO


Hi mate,
Thank you very much for taking the time to read through the whole proposal and the detail KPI in our charter!
That means a lot to us, and we will do our best to contribute to regional development!
Also, we are welcome to apply your initiatives to our DAO when we get the approval!
Cheers, :beers:


Thank you for all your support for Globe DAO, will give our best here.


Love to know more about this initiative.


Really great initiative guys!! I love the fact known and trusted Members are leading this movement however my question are

  • Hope it wouldn’t affect the MDAO or RC DAO since they’ve almost similar Goal?
  • is there any different between Global DAO and this mentioned DAO’s (MDAO & RC DAO).

However it’s also great if all DAO Exist as long as there’s smooth collaboration and overawe impact.
I asked the question cause of curiosity.

Godspeed Global DAO let’s build :ok_hand:


This is pure centralising and cartelising the regional communities.

This is pure counter intuitive to the purpose of decentralization especially when leaders and communty members from different regions has indicated tbeir interest in having their own grassroots dao that not just only aligns with their local needs but also aligns with the NDC goals.

Can you clarify if this DAO is meant to compete or supersede the current structure known as ‘Regional DAO’?
