Hello everyone and council @Dacha@so608@cryptocredit@Klint . First of all, I would like to express my sincerest thanks to all of you, even though we are in a bear market but with NEAR’s support for the communities in the ecosystem we have been able to sustain up to this point and that is the motivation for us to continue contributing. I am happy to be back here to submit our proposal for September.
1. Project Information
Organization Name: Near Insider
Proposal Title: September 2023 - Content & AMA base on NDC Objective
Hi @near.insider thanks for the proposal. As a long-time recipient of MDAO funding, I think we are in a moment where we need to pause and do a full assessment from project start to present, users/engagement and total funding allocated.
Can you share:
Total MDAO funding to date?
Month over month or year to date growth?
From my view of the reports and audience number across platforms, I’m not seeing the growth that I think needs to be there in order to fund this content program this month. I do note that Vietnam is an important region for the NEAR ecosystem, and I appreciate the willingness to aim to support current NDC messaging goals. That said, it’s my thinking that true traction is going to come from content that is not being published for the sake of meeting KPIs, but has a specific point of view, community and differentiator from other content programs.
Also, the reality is that we have 70 projects under review for limited funding, we cannot fund everyone, and we cannot fund projects with guaranteed continuity.
First, I would like to share some of the milestones we have achieved since the first MDAO grant in April 2022 (since then, there have been several months of MDAO stopping support to restructure).
Followers: at that time we only had about 9000 followers and now we have 66000 (more than 500% growth)
Impression: ranges from 800K - 1M impressions per month, this shows our stability

Next is about supporting projects in the ecosystem: we have supported 67 projects so far, it comes from consulting on how to build communities, promote projects to our community , implementing user launch and AMA campaigns. You can check here: Guild - Near - Google Sheets
Hello @so608@Bakaka I reduced the reward to $2500. I hope you understand our work. What we have contributed is real, I can compare with this channel and we think we have enough convincing to get funding
Hi @near.insider – thanks for responding and adding additional information. We will work to review what you’ve posted in depth as part of consideration of future proposals.
That said, as of the close of the MDAO review period (9/15), this proposal has not received majority support from the MDAO council. This can be due to a number of factors (outstanding questions and need for further review in this case), and we encourage you to reach out via Telegram with questions and consider resubmitting in the future. We are moving this proposal to closed.
We appreciate your participation in the NEAR ecosystem and look forward to future collaborations.
We may not have received funding but I haven’t seen anyone here to talk about the reasons and give specific evidence. Meanwhile, I gave specific evidence of what we did. How many people do we have on the council? And there’s only one person here to make the decision?
You can see here, mostly reposts throughout the month and posts like GM
We have no problem with your suggestion. We were just analyzing the reasons and persuasion when our proposal was rejected. In addition, we have stopped the telegram group activities. We focus on developing our strengths on twitter. Thank you for the reminder
