Hi @b4b_world thanks for the proposal. I think we would need to be able to specify the projects, announcements, teams, etc. to be promoted as part of this if we were to approve the grant. Is that something your team is open to?

Also, as @Bakaka noted, we do need to see reports on any previous funding before we can allocate future funds.

Noting support here from two council members (majority in support). I would still like to see your reports from past funding posted on the forum and understand the answer to the question above.

Hi, @so608, thanks for the questions.

We plan to work with the following projects during the marketing grant: Plato, Tenamint, NPunks, Assisterr, Unifat, Spear, Pumpopoly. Announcements and details will be prepared with the teams and described in the report at the time of closing the grant.

Also, as was mentioned, we haven’t closed one report from the previous grant. We apologize for the delay and missing. It’s quite difficult to compile all the previous details and results now, but we will do so and post it as soon as possible.
