Dao milestone for Proposal:


In the past approved proposals, we tried to make use of members of the ecosystem for most activities and those who were not members before were onboarded And wallets were also created.
Also, to keep The DAO functioning even after the funding was paused we carried out quizzes which kept the Dao community participating.
We have at different times shown our desire to be a part of the growth of this ecosystem even when at some points our proposals weren’t approved; we still worked on in-DAO to keep the goals and objectives alive.
The team has been together since the inception and together we have been responsible for the growth and development of this DAO.

Genre - What category does your DAO fall under?
Reggae music
Mixed media

Reggae Dao has become a platform for international music producers and performers to collaborate. With the our concluded sing in patios competition just concluded not quite long we were able to bring international producers and artiste together to exhibit the long lying dormant talent in them into light for the world to see through minting and uploading their jobs on the Reggae Dao website and mint store and this positive movement has directly helps the NEAR web3 technology to grow too.
The biggest impact we are making is is a way we are creating a community of typical patois speaking people and make them functional through engagements, bounties and Minting of NFTs and eventually grow the Near Ecosystem in the region where these people originate from.
