Following the guidelines provided, we believe our proposal aligns with the Vision Key Metrics and objectives set out by the CoA.

We thank you for your consideration and remain dedicated to fostering the growth and adoption of the NEAR ecosystem in Korea.

If you have any questions, I would be delighted to answer them

Thank you Community, @marketingdao-council, @Dacha, @cryptocredit, @Klint, @satojandro, @so608, advisors, and all concerned parties, Happy day, everyone :raised_hands:


We sincerely apologize for the delay in the proposal. During the KBW period, we were deeply engaged in discussions with the Korea universities and our partners for NEAR ecosystem, which led us to inadvertently miss the check. However, we want to emphasize that we have already carried out our September KPIs, which included voting, on-chain transactions, establishing partnerships, building BOS components with Korean university students, and creating educational content for our community. We truly regret any inconvenience this may have caused, and we hope you will kindly consider our case this time.


Thank you for your proposal.

You have already admitted to the unintentional delay. Your proposal will be reviewed in the next funding round in Q4, which is not a guarantee that you will be funded.

The proposal review process is currently closed, and those that were approved are in the process of receiving funds.

If KPIs change or a new update is released always check our tg NDC MDAO HUB


Thank you for your patience; your proposal is in the backlog of September.

Please read House of Merit received Vision Key Metrics from CoA and shared them with MDAO Here and align your proposal.

Quick question:

Near Korea DAO is one of the outstanding community in the ecosystem. What channels or methods have proven to be the most effective for attracting new users to the ecosystem and your community? I noticed that the number of members in your community has decreased from 0.93k to 0.907.

Is there a particular ecosystem dapp that has consistently shown higher adoption among the majority of users in your community, and what dapp drew them in?

Also, what types of content or activities have been shown to be most effective in increasing user posts, likes, and followers/views in your community ?

Dear Bakaka,

First and foremost, thank you for responding to our proposal. We’re proud to be recognized as an outstanding community within the NEAR ecosystem.

Based on the provided guidelines, we’ve aligned our proposal with the Vision Key Metrics and objectives outlined by the CoA.

To address your questions:

1. Effective Channels for Attracting New Users: Telegram, X, and Naver blogs have proven to be the most effective channels for attracting new users in Korea. Specifically, the updates and news related to the Near ecosystem disseminated through these platforms have significantly contributed to attracting and onboarding new members.

2. Decrease in Telegram Members: You’re right in observing a slight decrease in our Telegram membership from 0.93k to 0.907k. One reason for this is our recent focus on on-chain activities, leading to increased engagement on Near.social. As evident, our Near.social community has witnessed consistent growth, and our members are actively posting and interacting there. However, we do acknowledge the importance of maintaining and growing our Telegram presence and, as suggested, will make a concerted effort to focus on this channel in the coming months.

3. Popular Ecosystem dApps: Regarding ecosystem dApps that have seen higher adoption among our community, projects like Meta Pool, Ref, and Here wallet stand out. These projects not only resonate with the needs and preferences of our community but are also our esteemed partners, thereby strengthening the bond and collaboration.

4. Effective Content & Activities: The weekly recap has been a standout in terms of content that resonates with our community. These recaps have consistently driven higher user posts, likes, and followers/views. Our community, as well as other projects within the Near ecosystem, have expressed appreciation for this initiative, as it provides a concise and comprehensive overview of the week’s developments.

In alignment with the Vision Key Metrics set by the House of Merit and CoA, we aim to utilize these insights to further refine our strategies. Our endeavors will be geared towards enhancing account retention, optimizing acquisition costs, and maximizing dApp usage and social engagement metrics. We truly believe in the power of continuous improvement, and your feedback is instrumental in this journey.

Thank you for your continued support and trust in Near Korea DAO.

Warm regards,

Near Korea DAO Team

Hi @CoinEasy – thanks for the proposal.

These are great KPIs to have as your guide for the next round of activity – can you share how you will track this? What tool or method do you plan to use to capture and communicate the results?

From my POV, we are strongly focused on funding initiatives that will increase trackable, verifiable on-chain activity. Can you tell us how you will show results to MDAO if you are funded for this round?

Thank you!

Since the inception of our activities, we have consistently tracked these metrics, especially with significant projects such as Near.Social and the BOS Building Event organized by NEAR Korea DAO.

For data collection, monitoring, and communication:

  • Tool & Method: We utilize specialized forms tailored for our initiatives. These forms are meticulously designed to capture pertinent data related to user engagement, dApp interactions, and other relevant metrics.
  • On-chain Data: One of our strengths lies in our capability to accurately track on-chain data. We can ascertain which user has engaged with what dApp, their frequency of interactions, and other valuable insights.
  • Communication: We consistently maintain transparency with our stakeholders by sharing comprehensive reports. For reference, you can view our previous reports through the same link we provided last time.

In essence, if we are funded for this round by MDAO, you can anticipate a seamless continuation of our rigorous tracking mechanism, coupled with open and transparent communication. We understand the significance of verifiable on-chain activity, and we’re committed to delivering tangible results aligned with MDAO’s objectives.
