Funding scheme: August (Monthly)



NEAR Protocol Nigeria was established to raise awareness about the NEAR blockchain and its potential applications to address the challenges faced by Nigeria as a nation.

Our main goals are as follows:

Expand the adoption of the NEAR Protocol in Nigeria by implementing and distributing this innovative technology to institutions of higher learning.

Provide cutting-edge information and resources to newcomers and experienced users in the blockchain world.

Provide user engagement, exploring activities and events as things continue to unfold in the NEAR ecosystem.

Defined Objectives

Our objectives for the month of August is to carry out the following activities in line with the KPIs from the NEAR Foundation as we drive to get more awareness of the bOS platform, onboarding more developers from other communities and promoting the widgets and tools they build.

Some key metrics for success are:

number of active Developers

number of active Users and Transactions

number of Tools on BOS

Transactions increase via interactions with products on NEAR: We intend to involve our community in using near products such as neardrops and Astro DAO through an online workshops. In relation to bOS we intend demonstrate to the community on how to use near bos even use widgets attached to near.org, after the demonstration people will be asked to create accounts on our widget or fork ours then we send rewards via astro-dao to their wallets.

Developers activities on BOS and Interactions on Github: In order to increase developers activities within the community, we intend to create a bounty to stimulate community based web3 and web2 developers to use NEAR BOS and GitHub and also organize a workshop with various tech groups in our local community. We intend to use this avenue to engage more developers to start deploying components on the BOS.

Articles and Translations: Write and Translate articles on bOS into three of our community’s native Nigerian languages, Yoruba, Hausa, and Igbo, and then publish them on Medium. This is to engage more Nigerians for the NEAR ecosystem and also simplify onboarding process as related to creation of Near.Social accounts, Near BOS and various products built on NEAR.

Workshops: We intend on hosting workshops on how to use various dApps and platforms built on NEAR. For this month we will focus on educating the community on how to set up and use astro dao, ref.finance, how to open a near.social account including its benefits and how to use mintbase.

Events and Community based Rewards: We would be shifting our social media attention up to 70% more to near.social and 30% to twitter and other socials. As our weekly trivial nights, monthly referral contest will be on our near.social. Also any update made on any social will be first made on near.social.

Business Partnerships: We intend in fostering further partnership with local businesses and organizations, student bodies, tech bodies and startups building in Nigeria to promote the use of the NEAR Protocol. This can help increase the number of transactions on the network as more businesses start accepting NEAR tokens as payment.

We are on a mission to increase awareness of Near blockchain and its usecase, also to connect with builders and devs in Nigeria and build a project on NEAR.

Near Nigeria KPIs

Transactions Increase: Aim to reach 100+ transactions from our community wallets on NEAR.

Thanks for the support!

@marketingdao-council, @Dacha


Nice. This is more chain and audience focussed. Good job @Paulp5000


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.


Thank you for your detailed application. As mentioned, we’re in the midst of focusing our efforts on generating traction for the NDC election. At the moment, this proposal doesn’t align with the initiative to drive more engagement toward those elections. Therefore, I cannot support this proposal at this time.

Thank you for your proposal.

Unfortunately, i won’t support your proposal

Your proposal is out of scope for our August core KPIs.

I encourage you to apply next quarter. Thank you

Hi @Paulp5000 i have reviewed your proposal and would echo comments from fellow council @Dacha and @Klint regarding the current funding situation. We appreciate your work and i would suggest you resubmit in Q4.

Unable to support. Moving to Closed
