This category is for discussion regarding the NEAR community, including various guilds, DAOs, and individual contributors.

Following up on last week’s post [
NEAR Community Fund: The Vision of Community-Driven DAOs]. Here is the first version of an evolving document on the Community Fund. We hope this document helps us keep you informed and allow us to consider your say in what and how we develop our Ecosystem.
We’d love your feedback and insight into how we can make this as clear, transparent, and pragmatic as possible.
With a fully decentralized NEAR Ecosystem in mind, the NEAR Foundation’s long-te…
Creatives SputnikDAO’s purpose is to help support the creative Guilds/DAO’s within the NEAR ecosystem. Please submit a payout proposal to the Creatives SputnikDAO if you are a “Creative Guild Leader” or if you do not see another relevant creative DAO to submit to .
Our Funding Guide for the Creatives DAO is up:
We’ve Also Posted a Step-by-Step Proposal Submission Guide:

For the month of September 2021, we wanted to share an overview of the Creative’s DAO budget with the creative community so that we as the council (
@chloe and I) can be held accountable.
Also, this serves to update the community on what else we are planning on funding as support and incentives for our Creative Guild Leaders.
Please also review and respond to our Creatives DAO’s OKRs for Q3 (July - September 2021), for which this budget was designed to support. This is our final budget for Q3 …
For those of you who haven’t met us yet, we’re the Marketing DAO Council.
We’re here to support projects, guilds, and communities in the NEAR Ecosystem with their marketing efforts and enable them to achieve their marketing goals.
Whether that’s through consultancy, ideation, or funding, the Marketing DAO is an open and accessible platform available to all in the NEARverse.
On that note, let’s get introduced to the Marketing DAO Council members:

Thanks to everyone who shared their feedback on
our first budget request!
The proposals just keep pouring in so as the council continues to evaluate and approve while the NEAR token price constantly changes we want to make sure we have enough to distribute funds in a more timely manner.
That said, we’re requesting an additional 2000 NEAR from The Community Squad DAO to reimburse NEAR Reddit Ops August Report. We just recently started meeting with them to transition them from the previous syste…
Challenges & Blockers:
Recently, our team is helping to build trust in DAO verticals, and we are committed to empowering community-driven projects. NEAR Community Fund governance needs to be clarified with regard to the processes of distributing funds and expectations of reporting.
Overall, the MarCom Squad has grown to 20 people. There is a need to establish a “Branding + Communications” team, a “Social Community” team, including teams of “Builders” and “Connectors” (a.k.a. Info Team). Also, NEAR Foundation Labs will be focused on experimental growth initiatives. New team structures means updating workstreams and evolving dynamics.
We are busy promoting the September Town Hall + MetaBUIDL Hackathon Closing Ceremonies, coordinating
NEAR | CON, getting ready to launch Astro, assessing Q3 OKRs, and strategically planning for Q4. NEAR wiki development is another focus, along with exploring future collaborations with other teams.
Let us know any ideas or questions. Your feedback is much appreciated!
