[Closed] NearFox March-May 2023


DAO introduction
The NearFox platform is not just a website, it is a whole ecosystem that will be filled with different features both for ordinary holders, NFT collectors, those who are interested in passive income, and mainly for young artists who want to enter the NFT sphere, create own project, understand how the NFT system works for NEAR, as well as help at every stage of our artist’s promotion.

Art and culture are part of our life and characterize the society in which we live, it is important to support them and those who work and are interested in this area. Today in fact many people are still facing the challenge of living with the incomes of artistic works.

NearFox was born from the desire to share and disseminate culture and to support the exchange of art through a token that will be given to everyone who is part of the collective.

Why team is best for the funds?

Konstantin - manager, project leader. Higher education in the specialty: Economics. Previously, he worked as a manager at the petrochemical company SIBUR. He is a crypto enthusiast and has a lot of knowledge in the field of blockchain.

Luda, a young artist who graduated from an art university, decided to try herself in the field of NFT. Completely NearFox collection, consisting of 444 foxes, is hand-drawn by her. At the moment, we want to raise money to create a platform and are also looking for a programmer who will be ready to take on this business.

Genre – Art/ Educational platform


We see interest in NFTs growing every year. New participants, new projects and new ideas appear on the market every day.

We are ready to provide the first NFT learning platform on the Near blockchain. We are ready to fully support young artists. From learning how to work with the NEAR wallet, with marketplaces, with interaction with the community, to the complete transfer of physical work to NFT, the creation of new unique NFT, support for authors in promotion, collaborations, recognition in the vastness of our blockchain.

We will conduct a thorough anti-plagiarism check of art, communicate personally with each of our artists, setting them on the right path.

In the future, we will also create an artists’ stand with their already released collections and works, achievements and skills, as well as our assessment from the NearFox project. Any projects will be able to find an NFT artist, to agree on cooperation. We will fully encourage our guys to either develop their projects or be invited to projects that have long existed on the Near platform.

The most active artists will have the opportunity to collaborate not only with NearFox, but also with other market participants. Launching collaborations with both aspiring artists and well-known NFT creators will help the community develop.

Helping young artists is very important now. Now there are very few artists who really draw with high quality and know the NFT sphere, who understands blockchains. Firstly, it will attract new names to the Near ecosystem, and we also plan to hold offline events, meetings with artists who paint on canvas, explain to them the value and purpose of NFT.

We will also add a section for Investors, which will allow you to get information about existing projects in the ecosystem and their short description and numbers.

Hi @NearFox – I like the overall concept of what you’re aiming to do with this project. Can you fill out the MarketingDAO application form:



@so608 I’m glad you like what we create.

I filled out the form, looking forward to the next steps. Ready to answer any questions.


Hi @NearFox – thanks for submitting the form and providing all the details here on the forum. In reviewing this, I do think you’re aiming to build a really interesting project, but the request is outside the scope of what the MarketingDAO can fund.

This proposal is requesting funds to build a platform, and MarketingDAO funds are required to be allocated to marketing activities such as content creation and social media.

Our current guidelines are here.

We would be able to consider funding marketing of your initiative, but not the development of it.

Have you explored other avenues for funding the development portion of the project?


Thanks for your proposal,

There are a lot of things in this proposal that I believe is worth unpacking to get a better sense on how this may be able to move forward. In no particular order:

  • NFTs and young artists support: there are many aspects of this proposal that fall outside of the scope of Marketing DAO but may be a good fit for Creatives DAO - I encourage you to reach out to them and read their latest guidelines to see whether they could provide some funding.

  • Education platform - I am a big supporter of education initiatives. What are the similarities or differences between your platform and some of the existing solutions such as Learn Near Club and NEAR Primer?

Given the recent changes to funding, I am open to considering funding to this type of platform as a valuable onboarding mechanism. However, there needs to be stronger validation around the product. In particular, the ability of the team to communicate and create educational content, the depth and quality of the content, etc.

At this point I would suggest potentially reaching out to some of the teams mentioned above and explore any areas for collaboration.

  • Building Tech - I’ve separated the actual building of the platform from the educational content. We do have more limitations around funding technical development. There are some great avenues and opportunities now such as the Developer DAO and the Flex-a-Thon Hackathon from Ready Layer one.

Do note that Developer DAO is mostly focused around public goods and Flex-a-Thon has been created to drive awareness and get people experimenting with some of the latest and most exciting features on NEAR around Account Abstraction, leveraging tools such as Keypom and Shard Dog. While both of these avenues seem to be beyond the current scope of the project, I believe the right team will be able to see the opportunity in them and adapt if necessary.

I am not able to support this proposal at this time. I do hope that the information above is valuable and team is encouraged to come back with a new proposal in the future.

Hi @NearFox
Thank you for your application. The nature of funding you’re looking for is more appropriate for a grants proposal through the foundation.

Marketing DAO grants are positioned to fund grants specific to scaling in the form of promotion, content, and other top-of-funnel activities.

While it’s an interesting project, I’m unable to give my support at this time.

Hi @NearFox i have reviewed your proposal and the comments from fellow council.
It seems to me that this project could best be developed with NF funding. At this stage i do not see a role for Marketing DAO funding. Now moving to Closed

Hi! Yes, I understood all the comments. At this stage, I applied to the wrong DAO. Thank you very much for your time, I hope to see you again!
