- Achievement information about the DAO
Near DigitalFashion Dao despite being a new Dao, has been funded once and has executed only one project on September 2022 before there was a pause on funding. Despite all the challenges and set back in the past few months in the Ecosystem, our Dao has strive to remain focus on it vision and purpose as the only Dao that has been directing it efforts and funding to activate the presence of Fashion in Near Ecosystem.
September 2022 happens to be first time we executed a project as a new Dao after been approved by the moderators, on that course we started on a good note by organizing Digital Fashion Workshop and masterclass, introduce our Dao and build our own community in Near Ecosystem. We onboarded 10 creatives who had little or no knowledge about web3 or Near Protocol, we sensitize them and taught them the digital tools/softwares they need to know in order to practice digital fashion, we as well guide them through how they can maximize the Near Ecosystem and it DApps like Mintbase where they can mint their designs as wearable NFTs.
As a result of the workshop, 10 participants who attended the 2 days workshop were able to design 1 digital fashion art on their own. This 10 designs in total which has now been minted on our just activited mintbase store.
These were designed by one of the participants who has zero knowledge about digital fashion during the workshop
Just in one month of funded project as a new Dao, our social media in all platforms has increased by 250+

In the quest to activate the presence of Fashion in Near Ecosystem and as well achieve our NFs goals and targets for DAOs.
In this quarter we are working towards growing our community, in so doing staging a heavy online campaign for digital fashion designers and artists, encouraging them and guiding them on the reasons they should start building on Near. We will not just impact knowledge on them, we will as well engage them and supporting them through our quarter bounty. This will be of benefit to the internal and external communities in Web3 Ecosystem.
In this quarter we will focus on engaging our community members. As much as onboarding and opening new Near Wallets through our events is the main goal, we will also focus on engaging our community members on bounties and Web3 activities that will enable them create digital fashion designs as wearable NFTs that they can Mint on mintbase and other DApps like Paras,3XR and other marketplace on Near blockchain.

Online Digital Fashion Campaign in collaboration with Mintbase Dapp
I according to our survey and discovering on why Near DigitalFashion Dao community is so slow in growing. We get to understand that most of Digital Fashion designers/artists are not building on Near because non of Near DApps has Credit Card integration where they can get credited directly to their local bank account. So I related that to Carolin Geier @caromintbase the co-founder of mintbase and in response to that mintbase has just launched Credit Card integration NFT payment method. And in that regard Weare launching an online Digital Fashion campaign to create awareness to all the digital fashion designers and artists on Twitter, Discord and other platforms where digital fashion designers and artists are building that Credit Card integration payment system has been launched on mintbase and they can now start minting their designs as a wearable NFTs and have a wonderful experience when their NFTs are collected.
