Request = $500

NFT Beat Club #2

After a successful NFT Beat Club #1 event in Tokyo, we are ready to rock for round 2 this July! This time we will be hosting it in a new location and exploring a few key local collaborations!
Request = $500 + 10 N

VanDAO Studio - July Lineup

Continuing our collaboration with @plantasia to bring the VanDAO Studio to life stay tuned for our June lineup!
Request - $2500

DAO Facilitation = $500

Additional Metrics:

  • VanDAO Metaverse Build & Support is one of our steps toward sustainability for the DAO, as we will be using certain metaverse properties to rent out for events and ultimate put together a small team to support this aspect of the expansion. Starting with Cryptovoxels, but continuing our work with NEARHub and then into The Sandbox, where we own properties. We will start with The Canvas project mentioned in the proposals section.

  • With the success of our NFT Beat Club in Tokyo, Japan this past May we are back with round 2 and hoping to build on the 30+ participants of the first one. This time we are partnering with some of the local players in the Web3 Music sphere and will continue to onboard new people into the Near ecosystem!

  • Continuing our collaboration with Plantasia for the management and operation of the VanDAO Studio in Lisbon at Arroz Creativo we are waiting for the @plantasia report for June. They have been running livestreams via their Twitch and are onboarding DJs each week through the sessions. With the upgrades in progress and our September goal for sustainability in progress we are looking forward to the future of the studio.

I’ll be hosting a Twitter Space with NEAR Japan & Senspace this July 11th to discuss about Music NFTs and more!

We appreciate you considering our July 2022 funding proposal and supporting the unique work we do to expand the Near ecosystem to creatives across the globe. Much love! :100: :heart:
