Hi Clinton,

Thanks for your proposal. I note that you are an active community member, it is always good to see people upping their involvement.

Regarding this proposal;

  • I’ve given some thought to the Customer Journey / User Experience from the point of view of a person participating in a sporting event. Seems like having three days of tech lectures is a little bit forced, likely to result in a boring experience for someone who just wants to play sports.
  • From the point of view of the NEAR ecosystem; sporting events seem to be far too removed in my opinion to be eligible for funding. This is both due to the type of customer segment (not much overlap between people who want to play sports and people who want/need blockchain solutions or who can become developers).

In its current form, I am unable to support this proposal.

Hello @satojandro !
Thanks for all you pointed out.
Three days for teaching doesn’t mean exactly all ours of the days will be used. The three days is to help give us a grasp to ensure that we have passed a good message about the ecosystem to the audience rather than just gather them to come play sports and go home.

Sorry not to include that this sports centre is within a University and will draw attention of educated 18+
Also, the fact that a person does sport doesn’t mean they can’t have tangible experience/contributions to the ecosystem, hence the initial days of education.

…btw, the sporting event is A BAIT to capture the people’s attention. I hope this is able to explain and help create understanding.

This sounds like a fun overall experience… but it doesn’t very easily show how this will generate interest in Near or what will lead people to use Near regularly. It’s a no from me.

Hello @Klint !
Thanks for your words. If you look clearly, a scheduled three days for teaching before the competition begins, and all rewards are to be awarded in NEAR. This means competitors will have to own a NEAR wallet to participate.

Also, gate pass for viewers is having a NEAR wallet.

With these laid down, we are sure of onboarding into the ecosystem.

Also, having been part of the Open Web Sandbox, I plan on a link with the guild to keep the hands of those onboarded in the ecosystem.

Hello @Klint!
I think this part of the proposal gives the idea behind the event. To use what people like to do as bait and get them onboard.

…that’s if I am on the same page with @Clinton

Hi @Clinton – Thanks for your proposal. I think a project using NEAR wallets to introduce POA-style access passes to your community is interesting. You mentioned NFTs at the top of the proposal. Will there be an actual NFT pass to access the events or is entrance granted to anyone with an open wallet?

I think sports fans and web3 are very compatible. I don’t see any issue there. What I would ask is that you update the proposal with:

  • Projected date for the event
  • What is the venue
  • Are there any other team members who will be helping that are also part of the NEARverse?
  • Can you confirm this is an event/tournament for 18+ participants (we are not able to fund youth projects)

Also agree with @dacha I’d like to see an article about the event and results on Medium or another public channel.

Hello!
The idea of NFT is for going forward. Where ‘HOT’ moments during the event will be shot and made NFTs.

All players must open wallets through the NEARDROP links, also for spectators, they can continually have access to watch the games only by having a NEAR wallet. This mean, we continue onboarding process till event is over.

  • The event is set to begin 5th of May, 2022 after the Public Holiday in Nigeria.
  • The venue is at the Indoor Sport Centre at Sokoto State University.
  • I will be working with @Dahvie @realfavourchris
  • The school indoor sports isn’t for under aged as only lecturers and University Students play sports in there.

Do you mean after the event or before the event.

After the event, we are going to make all event happenings available for public consumption and also make videos of matches

We have a few events happening without a timeline and disappearing into thin air.

@marketingdao-council if they are more questions about the proposal I’ll be glad to answer…the competition is supposed to kick-start after public holiday which is starting on the 5th of April.
