NEAR Ecosystem Wiki

We’re starting an open “Ecosystem Wiki” here and on GitHub. Feel free to reply with any feedback, make contributions, and / or create your own wiki, using the #wiki tag. To edit, click the pencil icon :memo: in the corner of the thread.

Note: To make any forum topic / post an editable wiki, you have to click the wrench icon :wrench: after your wiki has been published.

Proposal: Ecosystem Wiki(s)

You know, when we think about it, this forum is kind of a NEAR wiki for wikis!

Getting Started ~ Ask Why NEAR?

Answering the above question is not simple. We all have our own purposes, and there are meaningful communities everywhere. NEAR is one of a kind, and it has many unique advantages. You might even say there are infinite reasons why being part of NEAR is worthwhile :infinity:

There is quite an array of ways to get involved! The following is an attempt to start building momentum toward clearly sharing the benefits of NEAR as an ecosystem of DAOs and projects. NEAR empowers all kinds of creators to build open worlds with open hearts and open minds :sparkles:

@jlwaugh I don’t really understand this post.

I don’t think it make sense to double the work that is done on Github for ecosystem map or in the upcoming Wiki here. Or are you just collecting the info to the move to Wiki?

Sorry! I’m not intending to duplicate any efforts. Just sharing my perspective and hoping to contribute. We can delete or move anything to the Wiki.

Here is another collection of links / content:

Thanks, @jlwaugh - this was discussed before the wiki was created, it is a great way to start populating the wiki.

I hope we can begin moving this over to the Wiki, which is now live: https://wiki.near.org/
