Hello team! I’m happy to support your proposal because it’s aligned
with NDC goals.

Aslo We all need to get at least 500 people to participate so that the Grassroots DAOs continue receiving funding.

Hi @HaiVu great to see all the good work - happy to support this proposal.


I’m leaning into supporting this proposal.

How much of the promotion across the social media channels can be focused on increasing participation in the NDC elections?

Thank you for your support! :blush:

Hi Klint,

The promotion across social media in August, even new ones like Tiktok (top 1 increasing % in VN in 2023), will create constant awareness, in general, to reach the new audience and retain the current ones.


Besides, we have another separate plan with the MDAO constellation to convert the above audience into voters as follows:

By combining both approaches, we aim to acquire 30 to 50 new IAH voters for the coming NDC election.


Hi @HaiVu I am following up on this proposal, which was postponed for review this month after not reaching a consensus during the previous review period. Last month, we asked to postpone this due to:

  • Continued questions around the KPIs – primarily that there is not enough detail in the proposal – and their alignment with the MDAO focus for the month
  • Budgetary constraints - we cannot fund all proposals from the community and at times have to delay final decisions based on a number of factors related to budget
  • You were also approved for funding as part of the Aurora community amplification initiative for the NDC election.

In considering this proposal again after postponement, I think we need to understand some additional details in order to approve funding. These include the following:

  • While you have included KPIs around the amount of social content you will create and publish, it is not clear how this social content will support the MDAO September KPIs. Please review as these and either update this proposal or resubmit for Q4.
  • The details in the III Building on BOS section are currently too vague for me to support. What will the online technical event be focused on, what format, how long, how will you execute it, who will lead the training? For the coding widgets, what widgets, what will they do, how do we know these are widgets people want and will use, how does the creation of these widgets lead to achievement of the MDAO KPIs outlined in the post above?

In terms of the widgets specifically, I think this could be a good use of MDAO funds, but I would recommend choosing ONE widget to develop in a proposal and then submitting a report so we can evaluate performance and assess the need for future funding.

I recommend your team review the above and update the proposal for September consideration or revise for Q4.
