This proposal is built to develop a decentralized application aimed at creators of musical content, on the Blockchain NEAR Protocol so that they can market their creations without intermediaries with the goal of offering independence, control, security and fair compensation to musicians, producers, composers and interpreters.

We are clear that the key in the music industry is to include transparency, clarity of ownership and distribution of copyright, that by using smart contract we would create a complete and accurate decentralized database of music rights, the possibility of instant and fully transparent transmission of artist royalties

We will work with the use of smart contracts to automate the distribution of payments and royalties directly to artists, tokenized music platforms and copyright procedures using the NEAR Protocol Blockchain. By offering artists and fans a non-corporate ecosystem to distribute and consume music, economic and creative power returns to the relationship between artist and fan.

I love the breakdown and I can’t wait to see this idea come to light


Hi there, thank you for the proposal.

The whole proposal for DApps cost $9k in total. Even this was planned for 14 weeks of development, I believe that this require a full commitment to do.

I don’t think this fall under Creatives responsibility to secure the funding for this proposal. With this big scale of proposal. I suggest you apply via NEAR Foundation Grants for the project with a more detailed and developed proposal to show your USP.

Hi @williamx , Thank you for your response. much appreciated
I will like to state some major key notes about the Dapp and it’s relevance under Creative community .

This Dapp is specifically created to create income for independent artist, and songwriters ,a platform to where songwriters and producers sell their works for other artists to use, therefore making money for the songwriter/ producer and giving real value to the buyer, This is very important to the Creative community and near ecosystem.
An industry for independent songwriters and producers in the community

We had a live music concert in May, with different songwriters, and producers



we are having our second music event this month,

Music event
and an open call for songwriters,
Open call for songwriters
All major activities in our community has been planned with a full connection with the Dapp.

We are working with a team of experienced certified developers,

every process on this Dapp, and the process has been broken down into stages, properly mapped out and shared with a well detailed plan.

This is a clear sustainability path for Young fresh Dao community ,fully inclined with goals and activities of the community since the inception.

I hope I was able to answer all your questions @williamx . Tagging all
@creativesdao-council @FritzWorm for visibility
Thank you.


I understand its benefit for the Creatives and NEAR as a whole. However, again, with the scope of the proposal and the amount requested, I believe Creatives can’t commit to fund your proposal. NEAR Foundation Grants is the most suitable place here, when you submit a proposal for the Grant, you will also have the chance to develop the proposal further.

I believe a proposal for dApp development need to cover more information than that.

  • Team information
  • Related experience & achievements
  • What makes you different from your competitors? What is your USP?
  • How will this impact the NEAR Ecosystem?
  • How will you measure project success?
  • Demonstration about dApp features & functions

Besides, the team who assess your proposal through NEAR Foundation Grants will have more experience & expertise to review the proposal. We, @creativesdao-council is community member like you, we also are not councils, we just doing our best to navigate & review proposal following guidelines. So that’s why I am suggesting NEAR Foundation Grants, where you can get a better review from people with suitable expertise for that.


Hi @williamx . Thank you so much for your response. Much appreciated
I will like to note that the creative dao is inclined to support projects that brings value to creatives in the community, In line with activities of the Dao, and building a Dapp is not an exception.


I will like to say again that this idea has been in planning for a long time since the inception of the Dao and it’s fully connected with all activities of the dao, and a sustainability plan for the dao, the 9k is only a break down of the process for all moderators to see, as we are only requesting 2k for this month for milestone 1 and milestone 2. This process has also been discussed and planned between the team, @FritzWorm and other creatives.
This is a major sustainability plan for the community, and income for independent songwriters and producers
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


Tagging all @creativesdao-council to join the conversation. Thank you​:pray:t5:

Hello @williamx :love_you_gesture:

We have been funding even DAO (tool) creation, and other tools for Creatives, in this case it is a dapp every creative from Creatives DAO could use, so adding value to the NEAR Ecosystem + tools for Creators from Creatives DAO. From my point of view there is a clear benefit.

Dapp development for Creatives had been tasked into the Creatives DAO responsibility in the past, so if things are going to keep the same from June this proposal here does fit within CreativesDAO scope.

I mean another dapp development was approved in June, even with the scope of almost a year instead of some weeks:

I do believe the proposal of @larkim will bring value to the Creatives and they are applying here because they are not receiving help from the Grants program, so sending them elsewhere means basically saying no which is unfair if we consider that last month something with a bigger scope and longer timeframe was approved.


@FritzWorm & @larkim I just wanted to clarify something: as you can see after discussions with Artivist dAPP, they were advised to approach a grant-type structure upon approval of last month’s proposal and have not submitted a proposal this month (this conversation was actually initiated in our moderators chat by you @FritzWorm).

It’s great that the community can support and platform technology related to Creatives, but I also think it’s a fair ask to consider the wider range of the project too. Having said this, I think some hybrid of kickstarting the project here through Creatives could also work.

It would also be great to hear from the team involved in the proposal on this matter :slight_smile:


Hello @ted.iv that’s right, and the main reason of why I kick-started that discussion was to give it a better approach to the funds Creatives DAO distribute into Creatives tools/dapps like receiving governance tokens back and starting building self-sustainability.

But everything is on hold now right, so there is no change in the Creatives DAO scope from May and June to July regarding helping Creatives to build web3 tools.

Advise to approach a grant didn’t mean a no to propose to Creatives DAO, the advise is to encourage them to receive help from the Grants program, just that their dapp development is long and the scope is big. There is no announcement saying that Creatives DAO dont support building tools for creatives.


I agree that it is most feasible for a dapp to start its work through Creatives DAO, with leaner but more affordable budgets. It is important to have contact and interaction with the community in the early stages of development in order to be aware of the demands and needs of the people involved in the creative economy. It is also important to learn the dynamics of the ecosystem and thus establish a coherent development base.

Moreover, the response to the Grant usually takes a long time, sometimes months, and all the energy of a project cannot be wasted.

We have submitted our project to the Grant, but we are considering submitting our research and design proposals to the Creatives DAO until we get a response, and afterwards, for work proposals that complement the development of the dapp.


Hey, want to say the UX/UI you already sketched looks amazing!

Really hope this goes live soon, I will for sure use it when onboarding as an example to explain creators how to upload music NFT :100: :love_you_gesture:

DAO Records and Young Fresh DAO for the win! Wish to understand more the connections/partnerships you have there. :vulcan_salute:


Hi @FritzWorm ,it’s good to have you here. Thank you so much for joining the conversation and shedding more light to the ideas. We are fully dedicated to this course.
This is sure going to be a big win for near ecosystem and creative dao community.



Hi @ted.iv Thank you so much for joining the conversation.
Well said,it is best to kickstart with the community and keep creatives abreast with the latest development.

Hi @larkim, can you add more information on this?

And this?

Thank you in advance for the answer


Thank you so much @williamx.
We are working with a strong and very dedicated team.
I would leave question 1) & 2) for the team.
@Developer @andresdom @Gperez @jochando

I will answer the remaining Questions.
W3 music incoorparates all music players, from producers, instrumentalists to songwriters…let me break it down
Close your eye for a second and Imagine a platform where a songwriter for instance writes a songs and upload for sale for another artist to buy and own , meaning the artist can sing , release and promote the song as his own. (Real value)
A producer makes beats upload for sale and it’s bought buy an artist that puts out the song .
A home where artiste can find songwriters or beatmakers
We are creating a source of income for independent and underground creatives.
*Our impact to the near ecosystem
Creating real value for web3 music creatives
Creating solution and a source income for music creatives in the ecosystem
Introducing new music creatives to the ecosystem
Incoorparates more users in the near Blockchain

  • Increase in the number of users on the platform

*A constant transaction and sales of works of creatives

*A steady source of income for independent music creatives

I believe have explained this above
I will post this to give a clearer view

One exciting feature of the dapp is the genre classification, for instance if you looking to buy a Rap beat or Rap song all you need to do is click on the genre and the list of beats or songs available will pop out for you to buy.

[quote=“williamx, post:15, topic:23931”]

I would say our Major connection is that Young fresh Dao and Dao records are both working hard to create solution for Music creatives in web3, and our impact will soon be felt across the globe.:white_heart::white_heart:
