162 NEAR to samlwtn.near to form a DAO, launch a social token, and manage the community for a record label with 20,000 followers:
I’ve been contacted by a record label with 20,000 followers. To avoid any mishaps with token or account names being stolen I’ll refrain from naming them publicly UNTIL everything is set up.
Over 1 month I’m requesting $1200 and expect to onboard 1000 new wallets to NEAR in that time. My estimate comes from a modest 5% response rate against the label’s 20,000 followers.
Consult with Record Label and Seed Club to verify my approach
