[APPROVED] Spiritual DAO budget funding for March 2022

Funding Proposal for March at Spiritual DAO

At February, Spiritual DAO experienced a floating at its founds due to an unexpected economic issue. Because of that we has some deficit at our February planning, but we hope everything will be normal this month. But for precaution, we will lock our founds in DAI as soon it’s arrive.

Before the actual propose, we like to address the elephant in the room. This proposal is an edit. That edit was decided from the Spiritual DAO council after the seclusion of the ex-council member John X. According to whats was said in this post. Spiritual DAO is much more than one of its members, so, with that, we decide to renew our proposal to make sure everything is transparent. Hope you enjoy the modifications and embrace it.

Hello guys!

Very happy to see that Spiritual DAO has a new proposal. I think 2 points can be stronger in your proposal:

1 - For the next months, plan better and in more detail the Social Media to apply for this fund in @marketingdao-council. For now, and for this amount, I think it is ok.

2 - Explain better your point 4 to the community. For example describing how much you are thinking to each topic:

Look into this point and I will be happy to discuss with the other board moderators.


So, i think i solved :sweat_smile:
let me know


Hello @beetlejuice. Happy to say that now your proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, so it is approved by the Community Moderators. Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO astrodao [link: Astro ] so that the council can vote. When and if the vote of the council is ‘yes’, approach NF for your payout proposal, following this guidelines: [New Process] Community Payouts


Thank you so much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

We will create the pool!

I already did the guideline for payout last month, do I need to did it again?

Yes, every month, you should put the funding proposal on the forum, and when the moderators from the creatives come and approve (technical approve), then you can go to the creatives astrodao and make a poll asking for the DAOs approval (content approve). After content approve, you can fulfill a google form and wait for the contract to sign. After contract, the resources arrive in 1 day or less. If you have made KYC before, you dont need to do it again. You make KYC at each 10,000 usd in near. If you haven’t, NEAR will send you a KYC after fullfilling the form and before signing the contract.

This proposal seems to be a creative one, but the other two seem to be more centred around spirituality. Important topic, but I am unsure how it pertains to the “creatives” community specifically.

Hello @marmajfoundation

It’s a god point that you bring to light.
I will try to explain my point of view (I’m a Brazilian girl, so English isn’t my first language, so it’s more difficult to elaborate).

At Spiritual DAO we are dealing with a spirituality in many ways, religion include.
When i think about Creative DAO, I think about art.

So, religion was the cradle of art. At the beginning, art was used to represent religion (sculptures, paintings, texts). That is my first argument.

the second one is that we have Ars Magika at the study of occultism (Ars, from Latin its Art)

And the last one is the concept of religion and spirituality are in themselves artistic and creative, because they are stories made up along the womankind (mankind) to explain and told things. They are imagination: a man, in the sky, invisible who look for us. An energy, you cant see, that make you feel better, animal that are part of you, mythical creatures with powers and so on. They are all creations of our minds (or not) and I think that represent Creative DAO.

Sorry I took so long to answer you, but I’m in a chaotic weeks.
Hope you like it, and we can still talking about it here or em private, its up to you :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
