P.S. We understand the current difficult market situation.
In October, the second Community Manager left us, and we will also try to optimize our costs.
We would also like to say a big thanks to the Aurora Community Grants, which have enabled us to maintain ongoing content about NEAR.
I would also like to point out that with the current market situation is not helpful for community growth, but we will try to keep it together and do something in this direction. But without some support it will be very difficult.
Plus, as you can probably notice, since the beginning of the summer, we have received only two grants for the whole time and we had to be very careful with this resource.


Hi @Vladislav_vl25 thanks for your proposal and your understanding during the pause in funding.

The DAO is now actively working to clear the backlog of proposals.

I ave read your proposal, but before i can support it would be useful if you could complete this form .

To assist you please take a look at the new Marketing DAO proposal funding guidelines .

Happy to support! I left my comment here regarding Near Ecosystem news stream, so probably we need your help with it.

No problem, we’ll try to fill it in (it looks very massive). :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for your support.
We specifically mentioned in our last report that we are trying to deliver everything that the NEAR Foundation publishes (translations of letters, reports).
So that users have a full understanding of what’s going on in our ecosystem.

These are difficult times, there’s plenty of negativity, but we do what we can to make sure that users don’t feel left out.

Thank you as well.
I know it takes a lot of time to analyze everything and understand what certain communities want to convey.

Hi @Vladislav_vl25

Can you please elaborate on the social media deliverables?

You mention you will be posting 1-3x per day.

What type of content do you plan on creating?

Hey, @Klint.
News about NEAR (partnerships, work with other projects, events, major conferences for developers and builders), news about the NEAR Foundation(important partnerships, grants, reports), Pagoda(protocol innovations), our ecosystem projects (various airdrops, contests and activities in them).

We translate the information, sometimes adding something of our own to help users understand the material better or what steps are necessary to take in order to participate in the event.

Thanks for your proposal and your patience,

I am able to support this proposal as NEAR Native is among the largest, most active communities on NEAR.

A few thoughts:

  • Content creation - would be great if you could go beyond just sharing news from ecosystem (someone else wrote those news) and empower your members to create original content
    *I am curious as to how many projects and builders are within the community, try to give more visibility to contributions from the region

Sometimes we create this kind of content as well.
But due to the powerful decline in activity, users need clear and concise information.
I can’t tell you the exact number, but we can find members of the Russian-speaking community in almost many projects.

We also have a chat room for developers.
We translate information from Pagoda about the latest updates and inform about different technical innovations for more convenient development.
As an example from the last report.
