Funding scheme: June (Monthly)


Apparently from Inception, NEAR Protocol Nigeria has been on a mission to increase awareness of Near blockchain and its usecase in solving problems currently affecting Nigeria as a whole.

As of last month we were able to resume our work on Telegram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Medium. Our main goal is to reactivate our users to believe in the future of NEAR and also maintain the expansion of the Near Protocol in Nigeria by implementing and distributing this ground-breaking technology to institutions of higher learning there and offering cutting-edge information to both new and experienced users of the crypto world.

Accordingly, in the month of June we will focus on Social Media Management, Content creation, videos, Translations, and organize Online events.

For that we are planning to do the following tasks:

Twitter: Share daily the latest news and updates within the NEAR ecosystem on our Twitter account especially the Near BOS, and also spread to other social media handles. This is to increase activities on our various social media handle, Increase awareness of Nigerians to what is happening in NEAR ECOSYSTEM.

Telegram: Increase activities within the near Nigeria telegram group in terms of number and interactions targeting an average of 30 messages per day. The main goal in our Telegram group is to reactivate our users and to increase the engagement again.

Giveaways: To maximize good engagement in our social media channels again we plan on doing small promotions. We are setting up a Telegram activity contest where the most engaged users will receive rewards. We plan to put on little giveaways on Twitter to draw in new followers and increase impressions. For Near Social we are also planning giveaways and contests to attract new members. Distribute bounties to community members utilizing our Astro DAO accounts to grow the community’s monthly membership in Near.Social.

Translations: We want to translate articles of the NEAR ecosystem into three of our community’s native Nigerian languages, Yoruba, Hausa, and Igbo, and then publish them on Medium. This is to engage more Nigerians for the NEAR ecosystem and also simplify onboarding process as related to creation of Near.Social accounts and Near BOS.

Graphics and Videos: Within the month of June we will create educational visual contents (e.g high-quality videos, infographics and gifs, as related to NEAR.Social and Near BOS.

Events and Bounties: We want to organize some small events such as AMA, contests, bounties and quizzes with other Nigerian communities. We want to create some bounties focused on how to build and fork the widget on Near BOS. These bounties will be in the form of the Contest to test the community on how much they understand Near BOS. In relation to the step to step process on how to build on Near BOS.

Problem Statement

Focusing on the situation in Nigeria there are many investors, developers, and creators in Nigeria are drawn to cryptocurrencies. In local Nigerian communities, there are increasing number of people currently owning cryptocurrency, and they are willing to engage in more in-depth conversation in their native tongue. Many financially stable individuals who are able to invest large sums of money on projects reside in Nigeria. They also operate or jointly own well-known venture capital companies that make investments in the cryptocurrency sector.

The overall environment is constantly shifting in our current circumstances, making it very difficult to create plans and concentrate on the NF’s objectives.

How is the problem being solved?

For the month of June we intend to keep up our initiatives in the Near Nigeria community. We’ll first work mostly on increasing activities in our social media accounts focusing on Telegram, Twitter, and Medium while completing the aforementioned tasks.

Also for the month of June, we intend to increase the number of activities, such as holding more online events, expansion of our activities on other social media accounts like Facebook and LinkedIn, also creating more videos which will also be posted on our YouTube account, creating more educational contents, Interviews, forming partnerships, and performing additional tasks as needed to meet the demands of MDAO and RDAO as well as the community’s expansion.

We are on a mission to increase awareness of Near blockchain and its usecase, also to connect with builders and devs in Nigeria and build a project on NEAR.


By the end of June, we want to have completed the following:

Fully active Telegram group and active Twitter account with an increased number of followers in each account.

Expanded our activities on other social media accounts like Facebook and LinkedIn.

Published educational visual contents including infographics, gifs and videos about Near BOS, Near Social, and other important Near Ecosystem news on our social media accounts including our YouTube account.

We would have published enough simplified contents on Near BOS to enable devs within our community easily understand the processes on how to build on Near BOS.

Have the latest news within the NEAR ecosystem shared in our community.

Published 3 articles about NEAR in Nigerian native Languages which are Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo.

Thanks for your support!


Grest job your team did last month

However, maybe you forgot asking your community members ro fill this form. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Rt5_Hj36vdjPrEDbEF253gknJXxllU1HFhVgEiFB9AI/edit?chromeless=1

We have only 46 responses on the form.

If there is a proof for this, it will be good.

Above all, i will move to support your proposal as it will move to focus on activities thst will cause your community to make use of near.social, and simple web2 activities on the bOS.


Sorry @IgbozeIsrael seems you mis understood what I meant there.

We are planning to have onboarded up to 50 people through the IamHuman verification process.

That is what we have to achieve by ending of June. For now we have onboarded about 4 people of which they have registered their details within the form presented.

More are loading :muscle:

Thank you for your proposal.

After gone through your last month’s report. You guys did a great job even without fund, we want to see more of this, with or without funding to give back to the community.

Too much focued on i-am-human in your taska and activities. Try to move this attention to BOS or other onchain activities instead, as IAH is now down and we are unsure of its status during your activities.

Happy to support and recommend your proposal to get funding for June.

Thanks @Bakaka for supporting and recommending our proposal for funding for June.

Surely for the month of June, we will be shifting more of our activities focused on Near BOS in terms of contents, AMAs, etc…

Really appreciate :pray:

Thanks @Ola pushing in our :100:

I don’t like the idea of just AMAs and giveaways especially related to BOS , why not some bounties mini engagement to encourage community members to build some components or widgets just fork the existing one and modify and share some reward instead of AMA.

I want you to update the proposal focued on the above mentioned in some activities if possible to have my complete support not just recommendation.


Thanks @Bakaka

Will look into it.

@Dacha please move the proposal to approved :grin:


I’ve been checking out your proposal and noticed that you mentioned daily Twitter posts as part of your strategy. However, I’ve noticed that since June 1st, there haven’t been any new posts. We’re almost a quarter of the way through the month now, and I’m wondering how this impacts the funding for June?

It looks as if there was some minor posting in May but nothing in April.

There’s been a lot of BOS news the last week. Have you shared it in other locations?

Done :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
