This localized sticker campaign will further amplify our presence and brand recognition.

  3. Promotion Metrics: The success of promoting NEAR creations will be assessed by tracking the increase in users, developers, or projects showing interest in the NEAR ecosystem’s offerings. The branding experience extension.

  4. Community Engagement: We will gauge the level of community engagement by measuring participation in NEAR-related discussions, forums, and activities during and after the event. Engagement with the onboarding and treasure hunt activities, as well as the sticker campaign, will also be assessed. Remember that all content will shared in social media before, during and after ETH Milan

Thank you for your proposal

ETH Milan is hosted by CDAO and has already supported many communities to participate and give back to the ecosystem, it is a more near event based on the number of communities that will participate.

Unfortunately, i won’t support this request.

Hi @frado Thank you for submitting a proposal to the MDAO this month.

As of the close of the MDAO review period yesterday, this proposal has not received majority support from the MDAO council. This can be due to a number of factors (outstanding questions, lack of council support, KPIs, etc.), and we encourage you to reach out via Telegram with questions and consider resubmitting in the future. We are moving this proposal to closed.

We appreciate your participation in the NEAR ecosystem and look forward to future collaborations.
