Hello! Where I can track the WAU? Thanks

Hi @Dacha,
There are two ways to verify, measures and vetting our Weekly actives users,

  1. The HealthGo platform accepts payment with Near tokens powered by smart contracts, and the Marketing DAO committee can verify WAU’s payment directly from our payment address via the blockchain.
  2. The committee can request app performance or metrics from the HealthGo team, and we would be open to revealing ONLY the app’s usage metrics and not our users private information.

Hi @Ricch.near – thanks for sharing your proposal. In reviewing this, here are my comments and questions:

  • We typically do not fund first-time proposers for more than a month at a time. I’d recommend revising this to request for one month to start so we can evaluate progress before allocating additional funding.
  • Can you post a link to the app in Google Play store?
  • In terms of how this spreads awareness of the NEAR ecosystem, there’s no mention of NEAR on your web site or your social media that I can see quickly – I don’t think all initiatives we support have to have the NEAR logo posted or be marketing NEAR constantly, but we need to see some logical connection between the technology and the initiative that will be evident to your audience in order to meet the guidelines we have.
  • Can you clarify how the app works? Did you build a new wallet based on NEAR or are you asking users to open NEAR wallets to use your app?
  • What kinds of transactions are they making and how can you guarantee a certain number of transactions (you mentioned 1X per week) from your users?
  • The initiative mentions giving users better access to healthcare by letting them pay with crypto vs. fiat. Do you have healthcare providers who are partners with your project? What kind of healthcare can your users currently access with your app?


Hello @so608 thanks for the overview.

  • Yes, Firstly we can reduce our first time proposal to a month if that fit into your guidelines.
  • Secondly here is the link to our app on Google playstore : Here
  • In terms of spreading awareness for NEAR Blockchain we have basically done that and we are still doing. Starting from out median event held last year we publicly displayed NEAR as a blockchain operating system, which therefore brought an hype to Near blockchain in Nigeria and therefore we say more developers begin to build on Near.
    Going further we are looking to do more of that virtually and physically.
  • Yes, HealthGo app as an in-app non-custodial wallet. This wallet is a product of HealthGo, built by the team, and built for the purposes of payment of our service, deposit is made into the wallet using ramping technology built by the team, we are not using a third party wallet.
  • Our transaction are based on payment of Healthcare services and education services.
    All educational system are backed using smart contract that is to upload your course on the HealthGo educational portal, there are some incurred cost call gas fee, which goes to NEAR also for users who want to buy the course, after paying the cost of purchases in NEAR, they also pay gas fees which goes to NEAR. Same methodology is applied to paying for Healthcare consultation, gas fees are alloted to NEAR Blockchain from payment of HealthGO services.
  • To guarantee growth is the more reason we are requesting this marketing fund, But here is a breakdown of our growth without marketing funds or aid from Near
  1. 700 sign up which equivalent to 700 new wallets creation
  2. 25k+ wallet queries
  3. 20 weekly active users for healthcare
    This metrics here simply state clearly to us that some our users make uses of our wallet to send in and out NEAR and usdc token already listed on our platform.

  • YES, HealthGo is licensed Telehealth services provider in the region of operation which permit us to Contract hire healthcare provider or services agent to operate on the platform.
    Currently HealthGo house 22 healthcare professional with diversity in the following field:
  1. General practitioner
  2. Gynecologists’
  3. Dental technician
  4. Mental Health therapist
    Also HealthGO has partnered with Online pharmacist called PHARMARUN to offer delivery of medical product from our users to their location anywhere in Nigeria, also HealthGo has partnered with MYCHEKKER, a at-home diagnosis center who attend to diagnosing our users who orders an at-home test and laboratory service.
    Currently, the HealthGo app provides general healthcare services, we are looking to nich down to mental healthcare and sexual Healthcare services in Q2.


Thanks for your proposal,

At this stage, I am unable to support this proposal.

  • It is not clear to me that the proposal has the required connection to NEAR strategic goals. In reaching this conclusion I’ve been heavily influenced by the industry you operate in: healthcare users generally do not care (and should not care) about the tech stack used. What needs to be advertised is how your product solves a problem for a user.
  • In this context, content creation about NEAR seems more of a means to an end to access funding, and a distraction to the core team working on health services.
  • To expand on the above, the proposal uses some of the metrics that we care about (WAU and txs) in a way that seems at odds with the nature of the product and what good User Experience would look like.
  • I’ve looked at the Docs - there isn’t any mention about NEAR or the actual tech stack used.
  • I also note from the Documentation that the team plans to have a #HT token and raise money that way.

Best of luck on your journey. You are always welcome to submit a proposal in the future were circumstances to change.

Hi @satojandro,

I understand quite well, but to get it clear, is this still a review reply or a rejection reply?

Awaiting positive revert from you and the team.


Hi @Ricch.near
Sorry for me the metrics stated don’t add up. This project isn’t a Dapp. The claims on your website are inaccurate in terms of downloads and it’s unclear where 5000 wallets have been created for this project.

I cannot support this.

@Klint, can you identify where you say 5000 wallet has been created???

I never said so, I only said we have 700 wallet created already and with this marketing we are growing it to 5000 with 500 MAUs.

I don’t see all this as questioning is I should be sincere, but I see this as racism.

You literally funded a marketing proposal of who want to draw, but are skeptical about a product building a source of growth and revenue to the NEAR blockchain all because it’s a black man building it.

Wow this show how decentralized the marketing dao really is

Hi @Ricch.near i have thoroughly reviewed your proposal and noted your replies to fellow council. I am unable to support your proposal in its current form. Moving to Closed.

Ok seen it all.
