Community Squad Weekly Update: 13 September 2021

Summary

Our team is focused on building awareness + engagement for adoption through community advocacy / empowerment. We are developing systems of accountability, governed by ecosystem participants, including DAOs and guilds.

MetaBUIDL Hackathon started with a bang at the Opening Ceremonies, and our Challenge Partners have been supporting hackers who want to earn rewards by solving real problems. Various Hack Nodes organized kickoff events in cities around the world, including Near York, Mukachevo, San Francisco, Kano, Lisbon, and Bogota.

The submission deadline is extended to September 19, so there is plenty of hacking time left!

Challenges & Blockers:

Recently, our Community Squad DAO received 65,000 NEAR from NEAR Foundation to be distributed across three DAO verticals. Going forward, these individual DAOs will be requesting funds directly. Also, we had to reduce the number of council members.

Action Items:

Our team is focused on supporting hackers, while coordinating plans for NEARcon, promoting community engagement, collaborating on strategic projects with Education DAOs, and preparing for Q4 by discussing OKRs.

@chloe @David_NEAR @jcatnear let’s take note for the Creatives and Marketing DAO verticals respectively.

We’ll need clarity around how we can go about requesting the funds directly from NF, and not through Grace, especially as we pass on council positions to these DAO verticals to members of the community over the next quarter (cc: @Yessin).
