Updated Project Timeline:

The VR DAO has onboarded several new Council members and wants to continue doing so. New and old council members are implementing bounties, re-engaging with the community and preparing the next several months of activity.

In this month of September, the main focus will be onboarding devs and technically capable members to implement the ideas currently being discussed and developed.

In addition to that, we will focus on strategies to increase the VR DAO sustainablity and strategies to generate income.

In order to carry out the actions we planned for this DAO and achieve the goals proposed for the month of August, we request funding for the following costs and activities:

  • Council. To be split into:
    : Part-time Council - 50$
    : Full-time Council - 200$

: note : Council members ask their payout according to their availability during the month.
: note 2 : We request 3x50 + 4x200. Money not spent carries over to the next month. If all the council members wish to engage full time, this will be adapted.
: note 3 : A part-time effort would be voting proposals and being present in the meetings + providing general orientation. A full-time effort would add creating reports and proposals, creating bounties or engaging with the community in the forum or TG, and participating in the various activities during the month.
: note 4: We will try, next month, to provide a better description of the several roles and actions needed from the council members.



: note: This project is also linked to the NEAR CON; a little more money may have to be allocated.


: note: MUTI DAO is requesting 1659; giving recent changes to the funding structure, the VR DAO pledges to support this project with a parcel of the full amount (to be voted by the council; however, this is written here to give a more detailed image of the possible commitments of the VR DAO)
: note 2: If the changes in the bounties are approved, then we can use part of our current budget to support this project a little more.

  • Create and implement a bounty to hire one part-time developer. This includes funding the entire process (Writing and publishing the bounty, running interviews, etc) .


  • Part-time developer position (20h week)


: note: hours per week may have to be changed due to $ constraints.
: note 2: We have to be careful with the fluctuation of $N and the timing of the payout, since this would be a paid position.

  • Develop and implement strategies to increase sustainability and generate income. Current projects being discussed: implementation of the VR DAO social token; use 3XR’s featured page to generate interest from other DAO’s.


:high_brightness: :high_brightness: Total amount requested = 5000$ - 567N (via coingecko, 4:30 pm,WEST)


  1. Since the request is now to be made in dollars, we will adapt current bounties to reflect that.

  2. [PERMANENT BOUNTY] Provide feedback about the VR related technologies in the Near ecosystem - 10$ - #18 by FutureIsNear We will change this bounty payout to 10$.

  3. [BOUNTY] : Help create a Guide for Accessibility in VR We will change this bounty payout to 80$; also downsized the number of possible approved submissions from 10 to 6.

  4. [BOUNTY] : Articles about Colour Experience We will change this bounty payout to 100$; also downsized the number of possible approved submissions from 10 to 5.

  5. We will change our own guidelines to reflect this change.
