[Approved] NEAR Turkey April / May / June

Hi @marketingdao-council, as agreed with @mecsbecs and @David_NEAR in our meeting, I am going to resubmit our three months proposal for Near Turkey.

The last January report you can find here: [REPORT] Near Turkey January 2022 - #4 by Dacha
In February and March we didn’t get an approval, but still supporting daily in the turkish group.
Currently we have about 100-500 messages in the group daily

I am going to send a three months proposal - April / May / June
Our plan is as follow:


Our main goal is to increase blockchain and crypto adoption in Turkey and heighten awareness of the NEAR ecosystem in Turkish-speaking area.

  • bring content in Turkish language about NEAR / share news and support:
    • Telegram chat Telegram: Contact @near_tr
    • Telegram news [NEW] Telegram: Contact @nearhaber
    • Twitter: https://twitter.com/near_turkey
    • Discord [NEW]
      • In the next three months we will also give support on Discord. The main reason for that is, I saw some questions there and I couldn’t see an active admin supporting. So I have decided to check once a day at least for now and answer all questions and also redirect them to Near Turkey Telegram (if they want to join and get a faster response). btw. does anyone know how to get the admin role there?
  • Continuesly get in contact with influencers and share about Near in different turkish community groups

  • Support in the group, help turkish members understanding about NEAR Protocol
  • Continuesly share News on Telegram and Twitter
  • Create articles here: https://www.kriptoparahaber.com

Good evening. Great job. I continue support you, Turkey community and diversity on Near Protocol.


Thanks for the updated proposal. I have a couple questions:

  • What kinds of articles are you creating for Kryptoparahaber? Do you know the topics in advance? If not, can you include links to the content in your next report?
  • Do you already have the support admins working with you or will you use the funding to bring on new team members?

Hi @so608 Thank you for your feedback,
I am thinking to create articles about:

  • NEAR ecosystem - latest news, monthly updates
  • A sum up of NEAR’s Road to Decentralization
  • NEAR DEFI (latest updates)
  • NEAR Town Hall
  • NearPay, as we got some questions about it

Some of the articles will be translated and some will be self written.
I will include all links to the content in my next report.

Yes we already have support admins in the group, if we reach our goals in the next few weeks we might need new members. The activity competition will also help attract new Nearians to our team.

Thanks for the answers – I can support this. You still need support from one more member of the @marketingdao-council for approval. Tagging them to help move this forward.


Moderation costs for Telegram seem high to me but I am happy to support this proposal for the next three months and see how it continues to grow and evolve.

Moving this to approved. Can proceed to post poll on AstroDAO
