We DAOs/guild & Marketplaces of NEAR in India would love to Participate in the Event Happening in Goa 12 to 14th of August. It is important to attend such events to grow and develop the emerging Web3 space and Community in terms of Community Growth, Activation, and Collabs between DAOs and Across Chains.

We at Kalakendra DAO are planning to attend the event by collaborating with Naksh, GoaDAO and other DAOs/projects based out of India.

Funding Requested

  • NearDrop - $540
    0.25 N x 500 = 125N @4.33/N

Rather than just Opening NEAR Wallets we’re also funding them with 0.25N via NEARDrop for community activation. We are planning to conduct a small event wherein they will be directed to an NFT marketplace to purchase an NFT for 0.1N which makes them eligible for a lottery entry. The winners will be selected at random and asked to share something on Social Media tagging NEAR & KalakendraDAO posts which the raffle money will be given.

Hey :smiley:
Great to see this proposal. Had a little query though.
If you’re planning to onboard 500 Users, why not use Satori NFT directly since it allows creating wallets(without deposits) while NFT is airdropped to that wallet.
I don’t think you’ll need both NEARDROP and SatoriNFT :eyes: Or you can additionally also drop 0.1 NEAR each using NEARDROP.


Hey @Kv9990 thank you, actually satori NFTs are most proved way of onboarding into near, but the account has usually 0 near, so after we get total wallet created we wish to near drop 0.25N to each created wallet to user using or check-in somedapps build on near.

Also, checkout the recent NFT Distribution Tool by Satori campaign we are running with satori

Yep I’m aware of that but User is onboarded and wallet is created. While we can have a debate on whether we should fund it or not after onboarding user, seems better to fund them with 0.1 NEAR instead and let them explore Ecosystem with that and let them take initiative to deposit Funds to their NEAR Wallet :hugs:


Agreed ! 0.1N it is then :slight_smile:

Good morning. It would be great to see a list of achievements of the Kalakendra DAO in 2022.

Could council rewards cover the requested amount?
Sorry, I’m unfamiliar with your DAO and clearly don’t understand the council’s role.

I jumped deeper into three proposals and couldn’t find any points where their work is needed.



Thanks, Dacha for your saint “Where is money, Lebowski” mission :smirk:

Ok, but Creativities DAO approved $50 for the minting many times. Councils got reimbursement.

Would you like to cover the participation from the Fanstroke DAO fund? Creatives DAO approved $1000 for discovering games that needed $10.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the results of the discovery. It would be great to see. Thanks

Hey Partner, Actually I would not do that, Mixing funds from Other DAO, Yes We have Received 1000USD for Fanstroke, Due to some unforeseen time, I could not contribute to the Fanstroke DAO, But I would like to do say that the funds’ value got depreciated as soon as we received the funding Also, I would take this place say the whatever funds received are in Fanstroke Astro DAO Treasury & Fanstroke.near wallet, I would invite you to be part of fan stroke as discussed earlier and drive the initiative of Onboarding Gamers into Near Gaming Ecosystem.

Also, if you are cautious about the funds utilized, we can cover Max 500 USD from Kalakendra DAO Treasury for the Conference.

Finally, this is really a great opportunity to represent Near and Kalakendra DAO to Indian Community, Especially Namastey NFT has opened a way lot of opportunities for Kalakendra to onboard and educate people about NEAR, we wish to get the same out of this web3conf happening in GOA.

Thank you


A large portion of the funding for this is contingent on the event in GOA.

What is the name of the event?

Can you provide an outline of the event?

Is it your event?

What is the Venue?

How long is the event?


Can you please list all the projects that you are currently involved with and all the proposals from Marketing and Creatives DAO?


At the moment, there are too many uncertainties in this proposal for me to support it in its current form. The issues I see in this proposal as presented here include:

  • No reports have been posted for previous funding. There is a list added here outlining a bunch of activities, but there are few links. And many of them are not what I would consider marketing activities per se.
  • It is unclear whether the activities listed on the forum after requests from council members correspond with what was in the original proposals, i.e. what the funding was for.
  • There is a general lack of specific detail about the event you are current requesting funding for.

I respect that the team here is active and has participated in the community for a long time, but I do not think the council should support funding for proposals that are unclear, lack proper reporting and generally make it very difficult to track. I think the responsibility of presenting a clear request for funding and showing clear results of past funding requests in the proposer’s.

What I would recommend is doing a comprehensive review and reporting of all past activity and results, with links and receipts where available, so that it is possible for council to review activity before approving future funding.



Hey @Klint Pls Find All the information to the Event Here
