[Closed] April 2023 Community building budget for PlayDAO

Dear NEAR Community,

I am writing to apply for a grant to support my work on onboarding new users and building a community for NEAR in India. With this grant, I plan to use the funds to achieve the following goals:

  1. Onboarding new users: I will focus on creating educational resources and organizing workshops to teach new users the basics of NEAR’s technology. By doing this, I will help onboard more users to the NEAR ecosystem.
  2. Building a community in India: To create a strong NEAR community in India, I will organize local events, meetups, and forums for people to learn and connect with each other. This will help to establish a strong NEAR community in India.
  3. Organizing offline events to onboard more users: To attract new users to the NEAR ecosystem, I will host in-person events such as hackathons, workshops, or conferences. These events will help to onboard more users to NEAR by showcasing the potential of the ecosystem.

I believe that with this grant, I will be able to make a significant contribution to NEAR’s growth by onboarding new users and building a strong community in India. Thank you for considering my application.
