[Approved] NEKO Morning Show November Funding

Hi @nonothenono @Soos thanks for the proposal and for providing the details in the report. Here are a few reasons I am happy to support this for another month:

  • Clear detail and tracking of metrics in your report alongside demonstrated growth
  • Community support and engagement is demonstrated on your social channels and during livestreams as well as on the forum
  • The topics you are highlighting in your livestreams and in the TLDR shorts are timely and on point in terms of what the ecosystem is talking about and needing to learn more about right now
  • I appreciate the efficiency you have adopted in livestreaming across multiple channels at once vs. trying to recreate new content across a ton of different platforms.
  • I’m in support of repurposing content for extended reach like you’re doing with the TLDR content on YouTube, Spotify, etc.

Curious why you got banned from TikTok? Doesn’t change my support, just thought it might be useful to understand in terms of the platform’s rules around blockchain/open web content.

In terms of things to think about for future growth, I agree with @Bakaka – would really like to see more progress made on near.social and on-chain platforms as that is where we would like to drive activity in the future.



Thank you, @Bakaka, for your support! We’re working hard to enhance our Near Social, and we’re thrilled to share some of our achievements so far in November. I’ll be posting the updates below shortly."

Thank you for your positive feedback, @so608.
We are delighted to bring value and contribute to the Near ecosystem. we put in tremendous effort to reach this point, and we are grateful for the support from, the MDAO Council & advisors, as well the community. With your support, we have achieved significant milestones.

Regarding the TikTok ban, TikTok itself, as a social platform, is extremely sensitive when it comes to wording, hashtags, songs, etc. We strive to make our short educational videos as transparent as possible. Additionally, we often include information about events, giveaways, and token airdrops, which TikTok is very sensitive about will consider it A (SCAM).

For example, I once created a video about the NDC SBT Token and the voting process with Bond tokens. Unfortunately, the video was flagged as (SCAM/Misleading) due to certain wording, such as ‘3 NEAR Bond Tokens’ and ‘free claim of SBT token.’ In our case, we were banned without any prior notice, and the ban was permanent. It’s worth noting that the video, which featured a clip from our episode with AVB from the NMS, had nothing to do with any giveaway, free claim, or misleading information; our main focus was discussing NDC.

Captions also contribute to triggering the TikTok Bot, especially if it includes specific words. Most crypto content on TikTok is cautious, as their accounts often receive warnings or have videos flagged.

In our case, we speculate that we received some sort of reporting attack because we received a warning in the same week on our YouTube channel for one of our old videos covering Twitter Spaces on NEAR.

We are currently in the process of rebuilding NEKO TikTok. In the meantime, @nonothenono TikTok channel with8,773 followers, serves as the best alternative to NEKO TikTok. It allows us to continue our mission of onboarding more users and educating people about the NEAR Protocol. The new NEKO TikTok account will focus on TLDR shorts, and @nono account will also play a role in this initiative.


@Bakaka! Thank you for your support! We will continue to do our best to drive Value onchain.

For NEAR Social, we’ve initiated the process of providing TLDR written threads for each episode of our NEKO Morning Show.


For those who prefer to read, we create a concise TLDR thread that we share on NEAR Social. This approach provides a flexible choice for our audience, allowing them to listen, watch, or read the TLDR for each podcast. Our multi-platform strategy aims to cater to diverse preferences and make our content accessible to a wider audience. We’re keen on refining and adapting our approach based on valuable feedback to continually enhance the overall user experience, That’s why we have not gone into details regarding NEAR Socials for this proposal, as we are still in the process of building it.

We will share what we learned and achieved for this month with Near Socials once we gather feedback and data. NEAR Socials is our main focus now.
