Hello! Thank you very much for your proposal.

I suggest postponing your proposal to next quarter and focusing on the oncoming Elections in NDC. We all need to get at least 500 people to participate so that the Grassroots DAOs continue receiving funding.

Hi @leamanza thanks for your proposal.

Would echo the coment by @Dacha, unfortunately the Marketing DAO have limited funds to disburse for this month and we are focused on supporting projects that align with ecosystem KPIs - primarily the NDC election and BOS.

Therefore i am unable to support this proposal and suggest you resubmit in Q4.

Hi @Dacha , @cryptocredit ,
I understand the current focus is the NDC election and BOS alignment. While my sponsorship proposal for the upcoming event may not align with these immediate goals, it aimed to attract more developers to build on BOS. I’ll be sure to consider resubmitting in Q4.

Hi @leamanza – thanks for the proposal. I appreciate what you’re trying to do, and we have supported funding requests similar to yours in the past.

That said, for August, MDAO must allocate funding with a focus NDC election and BOS. Currently:

  • We have $203K+ in funding requests coming from the community for August
  • We have ~$46K to deploy
  • We cannot fund everyone
  • The funding we allocate is limited and must directly and primarily align with ecosystem KPIs – which are NDC election and BOS content

Given the above, I cannot support funding for this proposal at this time. I do encourage you to keep building and come back in the future after the NDC election in September, the success of which is necessary in order for funding to continue for community projects.

Thank you for the work you are doing!

Hi @leamanza,

While we’re not able to support your proposal right now, I think in the future you could provide some detail on the specific deliverables and make a strong case for attracting projects to Near.

Hoping we can support something of yours in the future, just not today.
