Introduction to NEAR GoaDAO

Introduction to Goa NEAR OpenWeb Guild

We are community of people in India (now in Goa), who trust in OpenWeb

Our common aim is to make ideas with OpenWeb real in our usual life as well as to create a community of people around who can use it every day with us. And we found out that we can achieve our aim through collaboration with NEAR Protocol. That’s why we’ve decided to create the Guild - Goa NEAR OpenWeb

Our Mission is : To give educational and practical opportunities and experience of using NFT on NEAR Protocol in everyday life

The Guild is mostly oriented towards the organization of events (festivals, quests, games, open discussions, workshops) as well as creation of media content on event’s basis and with educational guides

Functioning languages: Russian and English, next will be Hindi

Awareness about NEAR is one of the focus areas of Goa NEAR OpenWeb Guild : we are aimed to open 100 new wallets per month, to perform transactions with NFTs during our events and to grow the community of people who will become active NEAR users, that visit NEAR platforms again and again; and who will be able to monetize their art in Crypto (NEAR).

Members : @Argentin @denni_wild @dmitryne @Neh @johanga @alinafinist.near

What has been done by us so far :

  1. Media content
  1. Events

  1. We’ve created the Team and start to work on developing Community and social networks (we’ve started with Telegram Channels and open Instagram page, llinks below)

What are the next steps :

  1. such meetups (like described in the link up) we’re planning to organize twice a month (every 2 weeks, or more often if it’s needed) with educational purposes, enlightening different topics like:
  • how to create the wallet on NEAR Protocol and how to receive and to send NEAR on it, how it functions, how to use it easily on daily basis
  • how to create NFTs, to put it on Marketplace, to mint it
  • different types of NFT minting platforms (guide about every one that functions on NEAR)
  • how to promote NFTs
  • how to monetize art (it’s valuable very much for creative artists in Goa)
  • FAQs and lectorium part with presenting of educational video made by our team

The goal is - to attract new members and spread more awareness regarding the brand among people. It will make it easier and faster to create content for our Social networks (Telegram, Youtube, Discord, Instagram). As well as we need more educated people for our further events (games, quests, festivals, meetups and workshops).

We plan to make educational videos after these meetups, so we’ll compose such a FAQ-reels and save it on our social channels; as well as live-streams will be doing there.

Perspective duration - 3-4 hours

  1. Organizing Games/Quests with collecting NFTs and changing it into NEAR and then changing NEAR into goods or food or enter to NEAR Festival

So here we also have a task to join different places in Goa to participate in our events and start to accept NEAR for their goods and services - cafes and restaurants, beauty salons, art/handmade shops, etc.

Games are happening all the time like a process according to people’s activity (detailed description in separate post)

The goal is to attract new users - to create wallets for them, to make transactions with NFTs - to involve new active users to Near Ecosystem through events and games on a regular basis.

  1. Organizing NEAR Festival - once per month or more often according to the process (description in separate post)

  2. Develop social channels on Telegram, Discord, Instagram and Youtube (we have to create Guild page on Youtube and Discord) with permanent team working on it (with deep understanding and interest). It will gather all the creative unique content from and about our events - games and festivals, as well as educational videos that we’ll prepare 2 per month for every meetup (lectorium part).

How to join us :

Telegram channels





How we will Measure the results:

  • Number of wallets created with our help per month
  • Number of active users (involvement in games/activates and participating in our events) who visit NEAR accounts regularly
  • Number of followers in Telegram, Youtube and Instagram channels (new and active per month)
  • How many NEAR our quest-players are making on NFT minting (per month)

@shreyas hi, can u tag Sofia (translator) here please too


@shreyas could you recommend us any references about fundiing options please


Hi @dmitryne,
I had suggested breaking down the guild intro post and funding proposal post as two separate posts on our call.

For meetups, I’d suggest you to synch with @jlwaugh as he’s planning on a series of NEAR meetups around the world. @pransh and @theChosenOne can assist you with the planning as they’re already planning for one in Bangalore.

What is missing here are the specific goals.

I’d like to know your targets-
For example:

  • 100 NEAR wallets in the first month
  • Creating curriculum and plan for people with NEAR wallets to start participating in the ecosystem- measured by new users on Mintbase, Paras, etc that were onboarded from this guild.
  • 200 followers on Twitter and 100 active members in the Telegram community.

I’m looking for specific numbers that you’re hoping to hit with your campaigns. Here’s a guide on which DAO to request funding from and their process: [GUIDE] Guilds, DAOs, DAO Verticals - what does it all mean?

Here’s how to submit a funding request to the Marketing DAO if you’re looking to submit it for marketing and outreach related activities(which will be reviewed by the @marketingdao-council): [Guide] How to submit a funding proposal to the Marketing DAO

Add your funding request into one single post outlining the amount in USD. I would start with a small plan to begin with and then tweak that based on the community request, so that we can scale up, instead of planning for a NEAR festival every month.

If you’re looking to do more creative things and onboard more creatives, I would recommend asking for funding from the creatives DAO: [Guide] The Creatives DAO Funding

In any case, as mentioned in the email and on the call, all of these DAOs need time to evaluate your proposal, so an ideal time frame would be 3-4 weeks in advance of whatever you’re planning.

Looping in @Sofia_Alum, since you’ve spoken with her before.


To Create new wallets and teach people how to make NFT it is very specific, No?

@shreyas thank you very much for information and helping us

Why u dont support idea of music festival ?

We already scale up
Strating with two people in September

Now we have NEAR team start from 7 people
And around people who supported us like 30-70 people like common

We can involve more people depends guild budget

yes, we’re preparing funding proposal post separately, as you told us

ok, i got it, and it will be added to funding post, and edited here as well

thank you so much for this instruction, very valuable :pray:

so as i see, i’m preparing one post like “funding the 1st month of Goa NEAR Guild”
and count minimum expences and minimum activities for the 1st month with proper aims in numbers, right? then if all is going well with our report, the next month we’re planning more activties with more budget, and then after few months we will be able to propose separate NEAR Festival for funding, maybe for bounty programme or directly to marketing DAO -?

thank you for the support!

@Dacha dmitry told, better to ask from you about references for our funding plans

  • what is an adequate maximum that can cover our ideas?
    we’re focusing on (1)events (workshops and meetups, quests and games), (2)media (visual educational and creative content for social media channels and for NFT,) and (3) community (to join places in Goa for their participation in quests and meetups, and to work on Telegram, Youtube, Instagram channels). every activity is going on all over the month, we have a team of 7 people who are ready to work on it fully

I’m sorry guys, I don’t know exactly. I see that some events bellow $300-$500 covered in full . Media depend on kinds of activities, etc
I think the best way contact with @shreyas about it or DAO marketing team.


Hi @dmitryne :wave:

Sure, we’d love to assist you with your meetups. There’s a lot of scope with meetups in technical, creative and outreach aspects and I believe we can help Open Web Guild can do a lot more. Let’s have a call next week after you wrap up today’s meetup! :slight_smile:

There’s obviously no time to get involved in today’s meetup but I’m curious about one thing here.

You’ve mentioned on the post that you had a similar meetup on 21st Nov, why did you choose to do it again and why so soon?

Hi @pransh
I doing this events , cause we have interested people want to know about NEAR and they need some practic with NFT

And big events we still cant make it,
We have only 3-4 people who can give more information about NFT to people and show them in practic to lern it. Its take long time 30 min for people who never used NEAR wallet and etc

Cause people have many other questions while NFT creating

And even this looking like small work, but big step to spread information. I think is necessary to meet up, because we need it continue when people have inspiration and our community grow step by step

Big way start from small step
Let me know how we can contact?
And welcome to our meetups :hugs::hugs:
