The Governance Working Group (GWG) is thrilled to share that after five months of collaboration between it and the wider community, the on-chain governance of the NEAR Digital Collective – V1 – has a formal launch plan. The below provides an overview of where we are in this unprecedented experiment to create the V1 Governance of the Near Digital Collective (NDC).
This document is meant to be supportive of the NF AMA with members of the GWG:
V1 NDC Governance is primarily focused on supporting the grassroots community to continue its work of innovating and developing a decentralized ecosystem.
Over the next six months, an unprecedented amount of activity will happen:
This is the hub for sharing all things NDC V1 Governance for the community: education, information for candidacy, the media hub for all things NDC. It will be a simple, clear way to engage and share.
This is the trust for the entire community. It is the vision for us to move forward with all of the granting for grassroots to be implemented through NDC. NDC will be THE place for funds and moving forward, the NDC will also weigh in on ecosystem-wide funding.
Through Polling, Workshops, and Feedback, we will lock in the NEAR Constitution (for the entire community) and NDC V1 Governance.
This will be the initial NDC V1 platform to run all of our elections, adopt governance and manage funding.
We will ALL weigh in and confirm that the current Constitution, as well as NDC V1 to be approved as a framework – YET – we understand that amendments and rules can and will be developed when we have elected government officials/bodies.
Now is your time to think about running for office! We will announce the election process in the coming weeks, and this will be your chance to be a leader in the NDC. The community has some very strong leaders with diverse perspectives and views – now, we need to elect you!
This will be our first congress to be held for the NDC as a Virtual Event. This will be a historic meeting of the minds that will set all of this hard work into action!
