- BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Hii everyone, it is a great pleasure to introduce to NEAR our amazing DedeukwuShryne DAO, we are ( https://dedeukwushryne.com/ ) a tree curator community multi DAO bridging the gap between creativity and heritage using the web3 technology. Curating African creatives collections, Metaverse/irl events, Fashion exhibitions and educating them about their experiences using the web3 tools through vodcast and residency of 7 creator’s from 7 tribes of Africa.
We started out as a hub for instigators and creators co-creating arts and experiencing irl and metaverse events together in Lagos state and now decided to bring everyone to the deep sea of web3 and how we can leverage it to onboard others and bring our collaborative dream of being a strong community together.
We are trying to build Africa biggest curator’s place of strength which will aim at educating newbies onboarded into the community through our membership NFT card built on Polygon and onboarding collectors through owning a share of a content and earn royalties while it streams which is where our outlined DApp project is centered on targeted to build on NEAR, but we are optimistic to achieve this while building Dedeukwu as a live band musician for the phygital era of web3 which isn’t one step from now.
The DAO will start with solving the problem of indigestible educational materials through our shryne vodcast and propel ambassadors for their tribal community building through our residency program.

WHAT PROBLEM DO WE WANT TO SOLVE?
One of the problems facing Web3 education in sub-Saharan Africa is wrong methodology.
A significant number of people in this region only have basic education as they couldn’t access adequate formal education hence, they find it difficult to learn and understand complex things or digest teachings done with ambiguous words or sophisticated terms which is common in web3 education.
In the last few years, we’ve seen people who are genuinely interested in web3 lose interest because they find it hard to wrap their hands around. We’ve onboarded a good number of people just for them to disappear not because they don’t want to be a part of the metaverse or the NEAR community but because they don’t understand what is being taught and this has greatly affected the community growth by limiting membership to those who are well educated and technologically inclined.
HOW DO WE INTEND TO SOLVE THIS:
We want to embark on creating and distributing short educational vodcast, focused on already existing Blockchain, Defi, DEX and general web3 education with our main target audience being the semi formally educated/ uneducated African population, users and investors adoption. Each vodcast will be 10-20 minutes max, created in English language without deep web3 terminologies with African pidgin English subtitles. We will adopt the use of a split screen to aid proper breakdown and practical illustrations. By doing so, the knowledge and information will be easily consumed and assimilated. Easy to understand fundamentals and principles in native dialects will help build understanding and nurture the roots of our communities.
MODE OF DISTRIBUTION:
The official distribution medium of this vodcast is DedeukwuShryne YouTube channel, we will also share across NEAR blockchain social DApps like near.social and other web2 social media platforms such as: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. The key aspects of the vodcast will be extracted and posted as shorts(YouTube shorts) reels and stories.
We will engage in weekly research on projects building on NEAR ecosystem and interpret them to our targeted African community without barrier:
Starting from LazyFi, Metapool and wallets built on NEAR.
MINTBASE NFT MARKETPLACE
PARAS NFT MARKETPLACE
and many others…
Web3 is here to stay. Hence, we need to carry everyone along in this journey to mass adoption acknowledging the fact that “web3 is not just for the intellectuals” but for everyone. We hope to cover everything and break them down to African phrase/slangs, random acronyms and phrases to ensure the market understands.
May: Individual proposals include…
1)A video editor ( internal editor onboarded ) $150 for 2 months.

2)Digital creator/marketer ( w/ infographic ) =$150 ( 10% of $2k ) for 2 months YouTube marketing and Google Ads as a sustainability path.
