[APPROVED] syzygy guild funding for February 2022

Project/Council Members:




Glory Mafor

Target: syzygy-guild.sputnik-dao.near

Current Balance: 54.21 USD

This is the first month of activities for the syzygy guild and we are looking to start small but with a bang.

See our introduction :point_left:t5: here

Total Requested Funding Amount: 2,000 USD x N

Projects & Timelines:

Organise an introductory event for the syzygy guild on Twitter Spaces and Clubhouse:

These introductory events of the guild will announce our presence, mission and goals to our targeted audience and be a quick outline of our actions. During the events, we will have guest speakers who are active in the various scenes (creative, dev, entrepreneur, young people in STEM) to add weight to our discussion.

  • Twitter Spaces event for creatives collective (4th week of February) - 1 x 70 USD x N = 70 USD x N

  • Twitter Spaces event on Web3, Blockchain tech and Near (introductory - 4th week of February) - 1 x 70 USD x N = 70 USD x N

  • Guest speakers at Twitter Spaces events - 1 x 500 USD x N = 500 USD x N

Groundwork for writers’ collective

The plan is to initiate a young writers’ and creatives collective where they’ll be able to share their craft, promote their work and eventually publish and be rewarded through incentives and competition prizes. In the long run, with their increasing knowledge of the crypto ecosystem and Near through our Dev events, they can confidently enter the NFT space (Mintbase for example) to establish verifiable ownership of, or market their craft. (3rd & 4th week of February)

  • Budget for writers (pieces to be published on Medium) - 45 USD/piece rewarded at the end of the month x 6 writers = 270 USD x N

  • Writers’ prompt and winner - 50 USD x N

Groundwork for Creatives, Devs and Young people in STEM collective (especially girls)

During this meeting, we shall meet with active leaders in the Creative, Dev, and Young girls in STEM community to discuss how we can collaborate and set up a sustainable cycle of projects, workshops, events and competitions and establish a community, and how they can contribute as mentors. (2nd & 3rd week of February)

Targeted number: 3

  • Transport, logistics and per diem for participants - 3 x 80 USD x N = 240 USD x N

  • Meeting refreshments and entertainment - 200 USD x N


4 x 150 USD x N = 600 USD x N

Performance Indicators

We believe these are very important for our work and will be looking to be more detailed and specific with time. For our first month of activities, our performance indicators will be a measure of:

  • Social media engagement
  • Attendance in Spaces and Clubhouse events
  • Participation numbers for writer prompt and call for submissions
  • Growth of community (social media channels) after events
  • How active the channels are

Anything else the Creatives DAO Council should know?

This is our first month of activities. We can only get better from here. In case there are any leftovers or extras in the budget, that will be included in our report and carried over to the events for next month. We welcome corrections, guidance and questions.

Our social media pages and channels are still being created but we believe the success of our rookie month should get us the visibility and traction needed to start growing our community organically.

Thank you.


Hey @beet93 how are you doing?
Thanks for posting this proposal. It is a very organized and reasonable one and we think that everything seems fine, except from the total budget required. As this DAO is a new one, following the guidelines proposed here, the syzygy guild is allowed to ask the max budget of 2000 USD in the first months of activity, until the DAO builds up trust and a contribution model to the Community. Thank you!


Hello @JulianaM I appreciate the feedback. I will look to reduce the activities and their size to cut down the budget. Going through the resource you sent so I don’t miss a step. Proposal will be reviewed.
