Community Engagement Manager - Nomination Aescobar

He is one the best of the best :slight_smile: working hard like a tiger and he is nice2! i had the please to talk to him and he is great! i strongly recommend this amazing person :slight_smile:


@Aescobar displayed dedication and passion for projects he is involved in. Happy to give my support! all the best my friend! :rocket:


Having worked closely with Aescobar I can also vouch for his passion and dedication to the NEAR ecosystem. Aescobar has great ideas, drive and community management skills that equip him well for this position.
He will be an asset to your team and would be great to see him succeed in the role.


What’s the deal, folks?
I need to get this off my chest. This role is not some experimental playground! I’m referring to these posts(Speaker for the Dead) where it says some of you are acting like leeches, grabbing all the roles in the ecosystem. We’re supposed to encourage positive communication, but instead, we’re seeing gatekeeping in action.
Why do some of you need to hog multiple roles? Seriously, you’re already Head of Community at Jumpfi, and now you’re eyeing another role at NDC? Give others a chance, will you? I’ve only been here for three days, and I’ve already noticed some of you juggling 3-4 roles. It’s outrageous!
This blatant gatekeeping is preventing new talent from joining the ecosystem. How about we focus on being fair and inclusive, huh? Stop monopolizing all the opportunities for yourselves and show some consideration for others. It’s high time we put an end to this and give level playing field for everyone.

I urge you all to reflect on this behavior and make positive changes. It’s time to prioritize fairness and inclusivity over personal gains. Thank you for listening.

Hai friend, I see your concern and what you try to point out.
Maybe I just like to share to you that JUMP defi is a project that stand on NEAR ecosystem while NDC is grassroots initiative that brings together users, projects, stakeholders and partners of the NEAR ecosystem to promote self-governance.

These 2 are totally diff things, the intention isn’t to close others opportunity but I like to use my experience in JUMP to involve more in the ecosystem and create a great community team and everyone who involve in the governance have been review fairly.

Let’s make this together, if you like to have some works/ opportunity please feel free to drop a DM on discord and I will assist you when there is project come to me



I’m aware jump is ecosystem project. But hey, they are building on near so they are part of the ecosystem even if your role was on ethereum no need to apply for this one. You are already working full time and this is another full time position.

Let’s be real here, you don’t even qualify for this role. And you know what? You can still contribute to the ecosystem with that experience without needing this position. It’s frustrating to see people who just want to get paid without actually wanting to help. I wish they had made this position unpaid so we can weed out those who are really here for the right reasons. Ugh!

To be honest, @mugabeBa i’m not sure where you are coming from here. Aescobar has nothing but the right intentions and wants to see NEAR and the whole ecosystem thrive and return to the good times.

Just because he has one role doesn’t make him ineligible for the position. Every person has the right to apply for the position. Upon interview i am sure the NDC will choose who they feel is best equipped for the position.

NEAR doesnt need these types of personal attacks on someone’s credentials that you are posting here. I think you’re a bit out of line with your post. If you are interested in the role yourself, please put in an application.

At the moment though, the way you are acting and posting, I’m not sure you would be right for the position.


Thanks for the feedback friend.

It’s clear that you feel salty and jealous of other people’s success because you believe you can’t achieve the same level of success.

Aescobar hasn’t done anything to you or taken away your chances, as the position is open and he is applying for it like anyone else.

It’s unfair to criticize someone for having multiple roles or jobs in the Web3 space.
If you’re good enough, you can also apply for the position, and I’m sure many will consider you.

However, personally attacking someone because you’re not good enough to join a project and blaming them is pathetic.
Instead of crying about it and attacking them, why don’t you look at their achievements and learn from them to improve yourself? It’s no wonder why no one wants to work with you.


Aescobar is one of the most hard working, steady and helpful persons I have met in the ecosystem. He is managing all these with a positive attitude and enthusiasm to add value.


I was about to respond @mugabeBa but seeing what you have written here, I think very well said. No need to add on and continue negative vibes. @mugabeBa I am still sad that you feel that ecosystem is not inclusive. It is not easy to build a reputation and network, takes lots of time and efforts, which may be disappointing. If you may need any help, please feel to reach out me

I support @Aescobar on his application for this position. He’s hardworking and dedicated to the growth of the Near ecosystem. I have seen this first-hand as I have worked with him in the past and currently at Jump DeFi and NEKO. He does this with a day job too. This is not an easy task yet he has persevered and still going strong to this day.

I’ll close my 2 cents with that he is one of the best choices, if not THE best choice.



Your recent comments have shown a concerning lack of respect and professionalism. It is essential to address issues in a constructive manner, but your tone and language have been unacceptably aggressive and accusatory.

For instance, your statements such as “you don’t even qualify for this role” and “It’s frustrating to see people who just want to get paid without actually wanting to help” are not only uncalled for but also detrimental to fostering a positive community atmosphere. This behavior is counterproductive and has no place in a collaborative environment.

Aescobar, on the other hand, has demonstrated great dedication and commitment to this community. His contributions and efforts have made a significant positive impact. It is unjust and disheartening to witness such a valuable community member being subjected to this kind of unwarranted criticism.

As members of this community, we all share the responsibility to promote fairness, inclusivity, and open dialogue. However, this can only be achieved through respectful and considerate communication. It is unacceptable to make baseless assumptions about someone’s motivations and qualifications without a proper understanding of their background and intentions.

I must insist that you immediately reevaluate your approach to communication within this community. We will not tolerate behavior that undermines our collective goal of creating an inclusive and equitable ecosystem. Your tone must become more respectful, and any further personal attacks will not be taken lightly.

Sir, please.

In some ways, I applaud you for joining the ranks of community members concerned about transparency and accountability, specially when it comes to community funds.

However, where I take issue is with the nature of the criticism: you don’t lift others up by dragging others down.

We should never punish someone for being ambitious or a top performer. Instead, we should be grateful we have people able and willing to wear many hats during these tough, early stages. Most of us are doing it or have done it, most of us have been or are close to burning out.

^ This comment is completely unnecessary. If there are indeed other applicants with comparable or better experience, then it is likely the decision maker can take than into account and extend the opportunity to someone else. However, that should never be an attack on the applicant who is working nonstop to make the community grow. This needs to be differentiated from actual grifters and other parasitical relationships that may exist elsewhere in ecosystem.

I’ve been on this forum for a very long time. I’ve been dealing with proposals for remuneration and work for a long time. Sadly, it is unwarranted attacks like this one that have put off so many great people from applying, setting the ecosystem back years.

Stay vigilant, but stay respectful and let’s acknowledge people’s value and contributions, even if they don’t ultimately get the role.


Having Aescobar as community manager would be a big win for the ecosystem. I back him completely.


Thank you for your nomination Aescobar! As discussed, we’ve decided to move forward with Russell but are really happy to have you as a moderator and we’re looking forward to expanding that role when possible.


Hello,i want to report Conflict of interest violation by @blaze (NDC consultant and head of working groups )

He hired Cheddar Finance mod Aescobar on the same position in NDC. How is possible @blaze ? why did you choose him, but now other 14 candidates

Hello,i want to report Conflict of interest violation by @blaze (NDC consultant and head of working groups )

He hired Cheddar Finance mod Aescobar on the same position in NDC. How is possible @blaze why did you choose him, but now other 14 candidates?

Please see above. Aescobar nominated himself for a different role, was interviewed, had already taken action to moderate channels on his own accord based on his inquiry of how he could support the NDC after the Disto WG was spun up. So therfore he was appointed to one of the open moderator roles there were two.

Did I reach out to him to contribute to NDC? Yes. I have reached out to numerous individuals.

Did I make a recommendation for him to be an NDC mod. Yes, based on merit and contribution to the NFT Community, not Cheddar.

Did he jump in and start contributing after he directly asked how to support. Yes.

Did I interview any candidates for the recent mods or community manager roles. No.

Did I appoint the recent mods or community manager role. No.

While the process has not been perfect and most mods were appointed on a first come, first serve basis the process is being improved. For instance roles will be interviewed by more than one individual and in some cases panels. If a member of the GWG knows an individual or has worked with them, they must recues themself from the interview process. This is already taking place on the open Project Manager role.

I will only reply to this post as it seems the most context aligned.
