[CONCLUDED] - GAMBIARRA DAO funding for May 2022


DAO/Council Members




*Target: Gambiarra DAO Funding for MAY 2022

[REPORT] - Gambiarra DAO Funding for APRIL 2022

*Total Requested Funding Amount: 5.000 USD in NEAR/DAI


Our Introduction: [Introduction] Gambiarra DAO

Objective: The main objective of this set of projects is to continue Gambiarra’s work and to build Gambiarra, NEAR, and Mintbase presence and visibility on Brazilian NFTworld, by thematic exhibitions, courses, tutorials, experimental art, and marketing materials in Portuguese and hopefully soon, also in english. Our intention is that the Brazilian visual art community get to know GAMBIARRA and get into NEAR blockchain through our gallery on Mintbase. And for this, we are building more and more awareness concerning our gallery, our classes, and our art which is the main objective of this set of projects.

Justification (benefits):The relevance of this set of projects is precisely to grow a large collective of artists in the Internet media and in the eyes of their fellow artists, who can also work together. This kind of visibility is essential to a blockchain that needs to expand into visual arts and in the Brazilian NFT community, which is pretty large. Beyond being important to NEAR and to GAMBIARRA artists, these projects are also important to help the development of Mintbase in Brazil, which is an important NFT market in the NEAR, as we have also been producing tutorial videos in Portuguese about it and stimulating the minting scene there. Our set of projects is also important for the community as a whole, because it brings more rewards to the system, and therefore makes the community more in touch with the GAMBIARRA Community and the DAO.

Timeline: May 7th – 31st

The NEAR Protocol has seen so many activities and events arise within its ecosystem. This development can only be cognizant of the fact that the NEAR protocol is conveniently expanding and providing solutions for individuals within the web 3 ecosystem, such as our NFTs, our wallets and numerous DApps. We at the GAMBIARRA Guild/DAO have observed these developments for a while and have decided to contribute our quota in love and gratitude for the NEAR Protocol towards helping it expand conveniently in areas where it is seeking more engagement and traction, which is Brazilian Visual Arts on Mintbase NEAR.

In APRIL we had the honor to have the following projects quoted on the report bellow:

[CONCLUDED] Gambiarra DAO Funding for April 2022

Highlighting, in April we had the chance to have a curator that took care of all the exhibitions in GAMBIARRA space. We finally have located the land, we have the building constructed, and have held 5 exhibitions with more than 70 NFTs.

We have made some more courses from Antimetodo 3, with other amazing artists. Mama Blua was also extremely important to the community, answering questions about how Near and Mintbase work in an irreverent and funny way, showing that it is possible to learn with Humor.

The 5th edition of Mintbase Sunday has increased our collection to 101 works of art and a total of 54 artists participating in our editions.

We had the opportunity to celebrate World Art Day with a big exhibition with more than 40 artists exhibiting their artwork. We also have the great experience of Metatronic 3, where we had in total more than 100 people passing by the place.

In May we continue our work, now with 9 projects! So we asked for the support of 6000 USD to fully realize all of them. Unfortunately the limit of funding Creatives DAO gives is currently 5000 USD, therefore, in a meeting with the GAMBIARRA DAO it was decided by majority of votes, to give preference - at this time - to projects that will take place in the Gambiarra Gallery (parcel in the cryptovelxs), projects from proposers who have never proposed before, and educational projects.

Find below the projects that the GAMBIARRA DAO has outlined to May:

  1. World Internet Day Exhibition - 500 USD
  1. Casulos (coccons) by Otávio Donasci - 500 USD
  1. Curating proposal for Gambiarra art events in our beautiful new building of free rent - 500 USD
  1. Feeling art classes with free software - 500 USD
  1. The BlockChat — Near Friendly Talks with Baga Defente - 500 USD
  1. Metatronic 4 - 500 USD
  1. MintbaseSunday 6th edition - 500 USD
  1. Council Work
    Each of our council members will receive the amount of 500 USD making a total of 1500 USD.

The importance of supporting our artists is very precious to us.
In this sense, we asked for 6000 USD in Near/DAI so that we could support the community to keep growing, with projects that have monthly editions and projects that are unique, and happen only once. Right now, new participants of GAMBIARRA started to propose projects as well, and it will be great to support them, more and more. In this direction, we’ll continue our community conversations to develop Creatives DAO and discuss funding limits!

Let’s keep the movement

Love to all community


This May we will have many interesting activities. Looking forward to seeing these projects happening


Very happy with Gambiarra Dao’s projects, in April our store inside Mintbase led the highest numbers of transactions, we hope to grow these numbers more and more.


@Dazo, this is great! We were just talking about daos sustainability in the Near community within Creatives earlier today and having the highest transaction value on Mintbase this month, shows how much it makes sense to increase our budget a bit in order to continue supporting this amazing group of artists that are part of Gambiarra. Our DAO has been working hard and performing a lot of things without payment, and I believe this will be recognized and appreciated by @creativesdao-mods. So we hope.


Really @Ghini Our work and our growth as a Dao has been very important and gratifying for the whole Gambiarra community. I believe that together we can reach new challenges and bring new incentives to this network of Brazilian visual artists in our Dao.


Hi all! I am loving all of your projects and ambitions! Unfortunately, as you know, the limit of funding Creatives DAO gives is currently $5000 USD. Of course we can continue our community conversations to develop Creatives DAO and discuss funding limits, but for now we are unable to go outside the guidelines because if we do it once, we will have to continue to again and again and then there are no longer guidelines. Once you can edit your proposal to fit within the guidelines I would be happy to approve!


Dear @adrianseneca thank you so much for your support regarding our projects!
yes, let’s definitely continue our community conversations to develop Creatives DAO and discuss funding limits!
About the funding limits I’ll edit it and talk with GAMBIARRA’s community for thinking about the best way to organise it.
Unfortunately, probably we’ll need take out two projects for that the others could be make in good conditions.
Do you have some suggestion for this procedure?
All my best


@adrianseneca We understand, Adrian. It was indeed very difficult for the group to choose the projects this month as they all have their relevance. Thank you very much.


I definitely hear you on this and appreciate your understanding of the limits we currently have. No doubt you all are offering very much to the community. I’m happy to say that your proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, so it is approved by the Community Moderators. Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO Astrodao , so that the council can vote. When and if the vote of the council is ‘yes’, approach NF for your payout proposal, following this guideline: [New Process] Community Payouts . Also, Feel free to join our Discord Server to Post Your Monthly Reports and Funding Proposals for Better Organization


Dear @adrianseneca , I thank you on behalf of everyone at Gambiarra Dao for your words of appreciation and encouragement. I will do the procedures. Thank you very much. Have a nice day!
