Happy to support. Have a great weekend.


Hi @TheAuction

@near.insider is requesting money for the same work you are requesting in your proposal.

Can you please explain?


Hello @Klint . Just need to register our form. We’ll support. With projects got revenue, they can pay by themselves


Thanks for your proposal,

Couple of questions and notes;

  • Can you give us an overview of any sources of funding to date besides the Marketing and Creatives DAO? NEAR Grants, private investors, etc?
  • For how long does the team envision they will require monthly budgets from Marketing DAO?
  • $3500 award to top minters and collectors seems like a special way to draw people in, but it is definitely not sustainable in the long term and creates a few scenarios where the competition could be gamed
  • There is a potential Double Dip with NEAR Insider. I would prefer to reduce the NEAR Insider funding directly, as we have no visibility into how much revenue they are receiving separate of Marketing DAO, and consider direct applications from projects such as this one @near.insider
  • Noting all of the above, I’d like to remind the team that Community Funding is limited and in very high demand. Recipients are encouraged to be as resourceful as possible.

I am willing to support this proposal for another month.


@TheAuction thanks for the proposal.

Awaiting your response to questions posed by @satojandro

Actually @near.insider supported us for free for a month and now we are paying for Promotions.

Please Find it here below


Until The Platform is Self Sustainable which we think will happen soon. :slight_smile:

yes, the idea behind is to not have an event continuously for The Auction platform, But as the Minting is one of the Major Milestone for the platform, we feel this strategy could help bring or onboard more people to use the platform and get used to it. Also yes there is a small chance of getting in to game, but we are seriously monitoring the contest.

As a Near NFT Ecosystem Project ,it is essential to have Social PR and Marketing an Near Insider is the best in class as now. we are open for suggestions

i have noted your reply to questions by fellow council and am willing to support.

Moving to Approved. Please make a Poll on Astro



The wallet you submitted in the form does not match what’s in the proposal.

Can you please confirm?
