Hi @CoinEasy thanks for your proposal.

I have reviewed and am prepared to support.

Thank you for your support!

I support this proposal. Notes and reasoning:

  • Jayden (coineasy) as been a long time contributor to the NEAR Ecosystem. I’ve personally met him in Seoul, Lisbon and Bogota. Knowledgeable about NEAR, committed to see ecosystem succeed and has the ability to execute.
  • Korea is a HUGE market. NF knows this and they’ve set up a Hub to look after BD (large, corporate deals. Early success already in gaming). I believe we also need a team to be doing the Grassroots work.
  • I want to highlight the importance of IRL events - meetups and hackathons are going to be HUGE. Let’s make sure we are proactive during Asia BUIDL, ETH Seoul, etc. Can we make a NEAR Hacker House happen in Seoul during these events?!

I also want to clarify that proposals are to be assessed on a monthly basis. Submit reports on forum.

I am truly grateful for your endorsement of our proposal. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your confidence in our abilities. As you have advised, we will diligently assess the proposals on a monthly basis and ensure that comprehensive progress reports are submitted on the forum. Your valuable input and innovative suggestions, such as establishing a NEAR Hacker House in Seoul during pivotal events, are immensely appreciated. We are excited to bring this vision to life and contribute to the growth of the NEAR Ecosystem!

Hi @CoinEasy – As we have recently resumed being able to support social media and marketing activities from established regional communities, I am able to support this based on the following reasoning:

  • The proposal includes marketing activities in its scope that can be tied clearly to metrics/KPIs outlined in our guidelines for assessment.
  • NEAR has an existing Hub in the region and, as such, it aligns with overall NEAR Foundation objectives to support regional activity through additional community funds.
  • You have established your social media channels and already begun to build audiences there.
  • I am generally in support of expanding NEAR by offering content in languages other than English, and this proposal fulfills that.

Note that we can only fund monthly, and we will want to see a report on activities, progress, growth, etc. before considering additional funding.

I’m moving this to approved.
