Thank you so much for the positive feedback and your response.
The Wizards’ Guild created two NFT spells and their accompanying presentations walking users though the steps required to maximize yield on Ref Finance and Ref Finance + Metapool. We would like to continue to develop educational spells that drive users to DeFi DApps and provide support.
As you stated, OIN Finance would greatly benefit from the services we provide (although Ref Finance needs to step up with an incentivized pool for USDT-nUSDO and USDT-nUSDO “stable swaps” to make OIN more functional on NEAR).
Every project is welcome to contact our Admin on Telegram to ask us to promote their DeFi DApp and collaborate. We have provided regular Cheddar and Metapool updates in the past.
In addition to spells and support on our Telegram, we are focused on promoting NEAR and Aurora DeFi on Twitter. We believe that if funded, we can become the premier location for up to date info on DeFi launches, updates, and yield strategies and we will provide requested metrics (which we will be accountable to) monthly as requested.
I believe we could perform the tasks outlined for $2000 in $NEAR per team member and $1000 per month for LiteLiger videos.
We are ready to ramp up but we moved to a more expensive city and can no longer afford to promote NEAR for free. Are you suggesting we continue to work for free until a certain metric is reached before we are eligible for funding?
We changed our funding request to USD in the requisite guild funding application.
There are no funds in our SputnikDAO to allocate and no reason to vote currently as we have been working for free since August and received no funding.
In addition to managing the Wizards’ Guild I previously worked as a Degen. Ksenia sells NFT music and started out in NEAR working with Transform Guild. Yana is a Degen, Rhino Guild employee, and is helping the Stars Guild.
Based on the suggested metrics, you will see that we would produce better results than the Degens for a lower fee. Additionally, there is a vacancy in promotion and education in regards to DeFi in the NEAR ecosystem, which we believe is negatively impacting adoption. We have a large number of NFT users that with a little education, could become DeFi power users.
It’s a very generalized approach and the biggest challenge is often distribution. I know you’re making an effort and it’s clear you’ve followed a structure, the issue I see is the lack of clarity on distribution. It’s a no for me.
Could you please specify what you mean by “lack of clarity on distribution”? This thread states the guild members, responsibilities, payment amount for each contributor, and proposed metrics. Additionally, several members have already completed KYC and are in good standing in the NEAR community.
In our guild funding application we outlined that each team member would receive 2000 USD in NEAR and LiteLiger would receive 1000 USD in NEAR. This total was placed in the DAO proposal. We believe this is quite reasonable considering the work we are proposing and the metrics we must meet.
We’ve spent some time deliberating on this proposal. We don’t really have many data points to go by and the amount requested is relatively high.
I would be willing to support this proposal if we greatly simplify it: we can offer X amount per video and have a clear pipeline of content, for instance:
The above are just an example and are in no way an exhaustive list. Strongly encourage you to liaise directly with these teams. Also feel free to contact us directly to give us regular updates on progress, ideas, challenges, etc.
I would personally be willing to fund $400-500 per video, and limit it to four or five videos for this funding round so we can assess progress and reassess for next round. Tagging council for their input @marketingdao-council
Thank you for your feedback. Our original request was in $NEAR, which we already switched to USD at a reduced rate in our Guild form. LiteLiger will not work for $400 per video. Thank you for considering our proposal but I believe that your suggestion to reduce our salary places us at a level of compensation that is not competitive with the market. Good luck to the Marketing DAO and we hope you find what you are looking for.
You voted no for funding the Wizards’ Guild and not only that publicly said no to influence other voters. We reduced the funding request in our grant proposal but it was stated that this proposal would not be considered unless we reduced our fees again. We said no so that should be the end of the story here but it seems like you really have it out for Yana and are looking for any chance you can get to sling mud at her. The reader should consider this, if she wasn’t a vital employee, then there wouldn’t be so much demand to employ her. Her metrics routinely placer her in the top 3 degens and that alone should speak volumes. I’m sure the Rhino’s Guild would vouch for her too. Anyone that can employ Yana should consider themselves lucky.
That said, I’m not going to entertain you any more Dacha and I’m not going to follow you around this forum or Telegram debating you or protecting people you attack. My time is too valuable for that. You’re pushing a lot of good people out of the ecosystem so that you and your clique can get more power and I’m not the only one who notices that.
