We have introduced DAOs on NEAR at ETHDenver to emphasize our commitment to decentralization and on-chain governance. 127 Proposals were summited by around a hundred users, and a total of 3000N has been distributed through this initiative.


During the Paras Lunar New Year event, we saw a growing number of participation and engagement on Paras. There were a total of 411 transactions among the Paras users, with 169 cards minted last week.

Thanks as always for posting these threads Eunice :slight_smile:

I’m “focused” on:

  • Team sync and sharing priorities with other teams/guilds at NEAR Core
  • 2x hiring processes for OWL/PM role and Tech Speaker Program
  • Publishing JDs for unfilled role (seems like we can find talent faster than I can write JDs :star_struck: )
    • Hackathons Lead
    • Community DevRel
    • Guilds/Community Ops lead
  • Working on a proposal for an Ecosystem Development Fund as a FoFs to support/grow our ecosystem and communities

Progress from last week:

Priorities for this week:

  • publish recap of ETHDenver Sputnik DAO and promote via social media
  • coordinate with DevRel team and launch Open Sourcery DAO
  • collaborate on ideas to develop the first campaign / adventure
  • create new GitHub issue listing TODOs re: DevRel Guild
  • write forum post about NEAR governance and support Metagov research project involving both intrachain and interchain DAO interoperability


How can we (re-)design DAOs, DAO contracts, and DAO frameworks in order to support a family of use-cases around DAO interoperability and DAO-to-DAO interactions?

I think we should officially start the DAO Guild and perhaps have Josh as the coordinator/lead? (compensated position with 5-10 hrs/week commitment?)

Our DAO efforts could really benefit from some centralisation and coordination by a PM
