Introduction & Open Call for Near Turkish Community

I hereby announce 'Near Türkiye Decentralized Community’
It will be a decentralized structure where merit is at the forefront.
We will soon announce a date for an online call and discuss further about how we govern, the dao, roadmap and all new initiatives that we’re going to build and grow together! :rocket:

this is a call to all Members who are looking forward to contribute to Turkish Community and the Near Ecosystem.
- Developers
- Community Builders
- Entrepreneurs
- and others.
you are invited!

I will guide and fully support all enthusiast Turkish contributors to organize and make sure we deliver at following hopefully in Q2+Q3:

  • telegram support group with competent mods
  • deliver high quality authentic content for:
  • the Protocol Basics
  • the Ecosystem and all it’s components
  • Educational Material and Infographics
  • set up and run a Near Turkish Twitter Channel where each new update/news being posted daily
  • set up and run a channel that produces quality Infographics which contain network stats, interesting researches about the ecosystem and constantly update it. (like Near Daily)
  • run creative channel events/contests in which community learn and enjoy.
  • keep in touch with the top Turkish influencers/communities and coordinate price-performance efficient marketing.
  • help distribute allocated funds to “Near Turkey Decentralized” in most fair way possible (by doing enough field research and sharing them with the community)
  • start translating important Official Near content (near.org, some educational material: near.university: Protocol Basics, Rust, Assembly Script online videos etc.)
  • start talks with other large Turkish crypto communities and organize events together, run twitter spaces weekly or bi-weekly
  • organize Near Meets, Seminars, online/live workshops, bootcamps and hackatons(in 2023) :brain: !
  • brainstorm together for organic growth hacking strategies all other innovative start ups!

Imo, some skills should be sought** for mods and content creators: moderate level of English. be familiar with de-fi and dApps, be competent about Near Ecosystem, have some communication skills, love for the Community

To build on a strong foundation I propose not adding any members to the Dao those who run or heavily involved with a centralized entity. (ps they can propose promotions etc. but not be in the Governance Dao)

I propose some basic requirements to be eligible to join the Governance Dao https://app.astrodao.com/dao/near-turkiye.sputnik-dao.near
-proven contributions to the community
-be respected, respect and get along with all members of the Near Community.
-be around for at least (months)
-spend some hours (we will also discuss this) on the Governance forum contribute to the posts
-show up regularly on weekly (or bi-weekly) online calls (
)

You don’t have to be in the dao in order to contribute!
We will let everyone come up with promotion offers and job appeals and compete for the good of Near Turkish Community and we need it!

**to be discussed and decided by the community
Anything I proposed above is not final can be changed. So feel free to propose, come up with better ideas.
Do you want to contribute to Near Turkey Ecosystem?
Now, please introduce yourself tell us about your: age, city(if you feel comfortable about it) profession, crypto background and your experience about Near.
Also please talk about your skills. How can you best contribute to the Community?

According to my rough research Near Turkey is not among top 30* among Turkish Crypto communities. In long term I anticipate Near Turkey being in top 3 (in both overall active community and developer count)*

*Hoşgeldiniz! *
*Near Türkiye komunitesine katkı sunmak isteyen geliştirici, komunite yöneticileri, girişimciler ve tüm bireylere açığız. Merkeziyetsiz Near Türkiye oluşumunda yer almak isteyen işin ucundan az da olsa tutmak isteyenler lütfen önce kendinizi kısaca tanıtınız:

  • mesleğiniz,
  • yaşınız,
  • kripto geçmişiniz,
  • Near tecrübeniz
  • becerileriniz (bu yeni oluşumlara nasıl katkıda bulunabileceğinizden bahsediniz)
    örn. iyi iletişimim, orta İngilizcem defi bilgim vardır, çok iyi makale yazarım, grafikerim, rust yazılımcısıyım gibi. *
    Burası hem bir tanışma platformu hem de sağlıklı komunite oluşumu için bir referans kaynağı olur. İleride buraya bakıp daha profesyonel anlamda gelebilecek iş tekliflerinin de önünü açmış olursunuz.
    Yukarıda yazılı tüm girişimler ve daha fazlası için karşılıklı saygı çerçevesinde fikirlerinizi belirtebilirsiniz. Ayrıca Ne konularda yeteneğiniz olduğu ve nasıl katkıda bulunabileceğinizi yazınız. Birkaç gün içinde online meeting düzenlenecektir!*

I have certificates in human psychology and pedagogy, and a coaching certificate as well.
I have taught for 12 years, but in recent years I have been a translator and also follow the crypto world closely.

Hey Yunus, I fully support this initiative!
My name is Kemal, I’m from Berlin, but I was born in Gaziantep, the 5th biggest city in Turkey, where you can get the best baklava in the world :yum:
I am 33 years young! (Don’t make yourself old buddy :wink:)
I am a tech-savvy nerd, a serial entrepreneur and a crypto freak.
I have more than 15 years of professional experience in sales, business development, marketing, branding and community building. I have built many communities from zero to 5 figures :white_heart:

My crypto journey started in 2017 when I first heard about Bitcoin. It was right before the market crashed so I started to become a long-term holder… :laughing: Just kidding, I believed in crypto from the beginning and started investing in Bitcoin and some Alts. During the long crypto winter, I educated myself. In 2020 I first learned about NEAR protocol and invested in it. I really wanted to think about doing something in the crypto space and I saw the open position from NEAR in October 2021 and applied. Why NEAR? Because I believe in a multi-chain world and I think that NEAR has the best chances to become one of the biggest blockchain platforms.

Today I work with super-smart people, meet tons of new people from all over the world, learn something new every day, and have one of the best teams in the world!

What I can help with:

  • Community Management
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Branding

Cheers Buddy!

I’m 36 years old, but my physique is 26 years old :slight_smile:
I spent the last 15 years on ships because of my profession as a captain.

About 2 years ago, I met crypto to evaluate my investments. But when I got into it, I saw that there is no limit to learning, and I decided that I should train myself in the last 1 year.
About March 2021 i first learned about Near and after i start to use Near wallet. Last 6 months i use most of the dapps on Near and try to learn about more things about them.
I learned a lot from KriptoRaptor, who invited me to this organization and I still continue to learning.

I have already applied for a mod on the nearverse before.

Hi everyone!

I would love to get involved, connect and cooperate!

My professional background is 15 years in finance / banking, last 3 years as private banker covering the Turkish market (mainly Istanbul) for Entrepreneurs & Executives.
Currently I am involved in onboarding companies and projects to NEAR.

I started “crypto” with mt.gox and well… I am still here, if you know what I mean :slight_smile:

Reading through the above I see strong potential for cooperation as some projects need some services as described above (community building, events, teaching, development) and I am sure on the other hand I can help with some of my good contacts.

Let me know if you want to know anything specific and happy to jump into a call anytime.

Best,
Marcos
