[Closed] Near Hunters (October)

We have four active applications in the Aurora network, which currently show excellent results for transactions and users:

Active top applications in the Aurora network by DappRadar

  1. Hunters Bet - Hunters Bet is a decentralized platform designed for event forecasting and tournament creation based on predictions. Link to DappRadar - 3rd place on DappRadar

  2. WordleAurora - Wordle game on Aurora chain. Link to DappRadar - 4th place on DappRadar

  3. Aurora 2048 - 2048 game on Aurora chain. Link to DappRadar - 5th place on DappRadar

4 Aurora Community Tipbot - Telegram bot to send Aurora tokens in Telegram. The link to DappRadar is the 18th place on DappRadar, sometimes it is not really due to the lack of our funds to maintain, as we actively reward our community in chat rooms for participating in our events and games.

Last month we were unable to get funding for our existing projects and maintained everything ourselves, but if we cannot get funds in October, then support in this and the next months will be very difficult. We are not threatening anyone, but just want to point out an existing problem.


Hey, thanks for the clarification! :slightly_smiling_face:

Unfortunately based on dappradar I can’t comprehend the excellent results for transactions and users part.

Weekly aggegrated data is about:

  • 100 UAW (and based on your posts you distribute thousands of dollar each month for your userbase, so I wouldn’t call that excellent results if every UAW costs $10+ per month)
  • Each user only makes 1-2 transactions per day.
  • Contract volume less than $20
  • Contract balance less than $100

The aurora tip bot has based on dappradar 3-4 users per week.

Besides that, frankly imho the existing problem is that your apps run since a few months and you don’t have any concept for a sustainable economy for your apps and it’s not a solution to ask for grants of several thousands dollar each month.

To clarify: I am just a community member and not from the council. But imho this proposal looks much to expensive considering the previous grants you received and the given results.

Perhaps it makes sense to split your request based on the tasks you did (community management, huntersbet, near pixels…) to make it more comprehensable?

Thank you for listing them.

Echoing what @Danielzo said, and looking at the dappradar, the outcome is discouraged, but you did not explain how this proposal helps us achieve our core values with the current UAW outcomes.

Instead of focusing on adding another pixel feature, it is better to concentrate on improving the existing projects you own, and how to encourage more users and colab with community leaders to use or utilize them

Again, requesting content support that attracts more ecosystem users is preferable.

I will provide some sustainability and growth advice as well as introduce the games and products to the ecosystem and regional communities. Please contact me via tg.

I will reconsider if you can edit the proposal to focus on getting more users to use the existing game, but at this point, it is a no from me, councils have a final support/closed or reject decision.

Have a pleasent week ahead of you.

You really think that community bot and other dapp that we use in AURORA distribute thousands of dollars each month for our userbase? Show me please where did you get this.

Guys, you are true professionals, and your contribution to the NEAR ecosystem is incredibly significant. Your diligence and passion for the development of this technology do not go unnoticed. You are not only enhancing the reputation of our blockchain but also attracting new participants and developers, making NEAR even more appealing to many. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. You have my unequivocal and heartfelt support!


From [Approved] NEAR HUNTERS Community

  • Rewards - 2600 USD
  • Zealy - 1000 USD

From [APPROVED] NEAR Hunters community for August

  • Rewards - 500 USD

From this proposal:

I wonder a bit that you don’t know your own reward budget that you have requested.

Based on the previous proposals you are part of the team and got paid at least $2700 for the project so far, that makes your commendatory post very dubious.

I would really like to fix the situation with transactions and new active users on the network. I sincerely ask you to give me links to your projects so that I can use your experience and fix the shortcomings of our projects to improve their efficiency.
Thank you for your opinion and participation in the discussion.

Hi @techdir thanks for the proposal and for responding to the feedback and questions from MDAO advisor @Bakaka and community member @Danielzo.

In order to consider this proposal during our October review period (happening this week), I need to see a report on activity from most recent funds (August?). I see in your July report that you did not receive funds as expected and then had to change your plans somewhat due to that. Do you have a report that you can post in the proposal for August?

Here is a link to the MarketingDAO Guidelines for October that were posted on the forum. They contain the NDC’s KPIs we are asked to focus on for allocating this month’s funds.

I’ll quote them here so it’s easier to review:

Please use the following metrics that will be used for tracking individual initiatives’ performance by Marketing (Eco) DAO. All the metrics must be attributable to the relevant project/initiative through on-chain activity and off-chain reporting, ensuring GDPR compliance and preserving privacy:

  1. Accounts retention after 1/2/4/8 weeks — the percentage of accounts who continue interacting on the chain over a given time period (higher is better)
  2. Account acquisition cost — budget divided by the number of accounts interacting through the funded initiative (lower is better)
  3. Median number of dApps used by P95 accounts retained for 1+ week (higher is better)
  4. Number of accounts retained for 1+ week using at least three dApps (higher is better)
  5. Social engagement score — some compound metric of the number of posts, likes, and followers/views in social media produced by the users.

Let’s take this example: Why should Marketing (Eco) DAO fund Project X?

  1. Project X should have a clear goal and target audience
  2. Project X should bring improvements to several metrics listed above

Based on the above, can you share:

  • Most recent report for latest funding
  • Which of the above KPIs your initiative will use if funding is received
  • How you will track and share the results with MDAO so we can have visibility into the results?
  • What is the most important aspect of this proposal, the most crucial to fund – what will have the most impact for the community?

The reality is that MDAO has 35 pending proposals for limited funds, so it is likely we will be asking for revisions and some reductions in scope in order to fund the highest impact activities and projects as we move into mid-Q4.


This calls into question your competence.

Hello! Our Report for August, if you have any questions or need an extended comment, we are always happy to respond :handshake:

Hello Luchok! Could you please update your proposal with new KPIs ?

You want to say that the applications that cost $30,000 will stop working as soon as you are not given funding? Should we give you money for new applications so that old ones work?

Why collaborate with you and get into such dependence? Your applications are not in demand, and their maintenance costs a maximum of $100. Your requests and threats are out of place. Then you need to be closed!

Also looks like here is another proposal for exactly the same applications, also for this month:

Wow, just no words)))Copy past project was approved ) cool))

@Dacha @so608 We have described exactly how our projects meet the metrics and removed NEAR PIXELS from the list of funding, as we plan to go with this project for the next month, when we will write out the terms of reference in more detail. Now our task is to concentrate on applications that are already running!

This is simply an issue of interpretation, as typically individuals from different nations communicate with their own national tone. I hope you do not accuse me, as it goes against ethical norms. For instance, I was not attempting to offend anyone; excessive emotionality is not only inherent to me!) You could come to our voice or ama sessions that I lead and hear me interact with guests.

:arrow_up: What’s above I wrote myself.

:arrow_down:Below is a version of AI that softens the emotional load on sentences (It’s not me, it’s life :upside_down_face:)

This is primarily a matter of interpretation, as people from various countries often express themselves with their own cultural nuances. I trust you won’t find fault with me, as it contradicts ethical principles. For instance, I had no intention of causing offense; expressing strong emotions is not a characteristic of my communication style. You are welcome to join our voice or AMA sessions that I host, where you can observe how I interact with our guests. Best regards.

So i hope you choose what is more comfortable for you to read) Thank you from all my heart

Near Hunters is an excellent project that has proven itself a long time ago.
I often go to their AMA to chat about the NEAR ecosystem and learn a lot of relevant information
