Hello NEAR community!
Following the recent Twitter Spaces yesterday here’s an overview covering the intros of Marieke & Henry, the discussions, and a follow up to the concerns raised around CreativesDAO. The primary topic of the Spaces was around NDC, and we were excited to also be joined by council members from MarketingDAO & DeveloperDAO.
- Marieke Flament - CEO of NEAR Foundation
- Chris Donovan - General Council at NEAR Foundation
- Henry (Blaze) - GWG
- Ozymandius - GWG
- William (Atrox) - GWG
- Sarah Kornfeld - GWG
- AVB - MarketingDAO Council
- Maksym Zavershynskyi - DeveloperDAO Council
We’re extremely grateful for the participation of our guest speakers, and everyone who attended & participated. It was a great opportunity for the community to come together and engage in meaningful discussion around NDC, the grassroots DAOs, and NEAR Foundation’s efforts to further decentralize and empower the community.
For those who were not able to attend, the Spaces was recorded and you can find it here.
Leading up to the spaces were various tweets with supporting information on NDC:

To kick things off Marieke and Blaze provided in depth overviews packed with information on NDC, the GWG, NDC focuses and upcoming timelines, NEAR Foundations goal in decentralizing, and strategy going into 2023.
The Spaces was an open discussion/AMA format that led to some great questions and topics being raised, and a recap can be found here.
NEAR Intern also put out a great, in depth recap of the AMA: here!
There were concerns raised regarding the prolonged time frame for funding & operationalizing CreativesDAO, and statements around feeling rejected in their proposals and efforts. CreativesDAO community is an important part of the NEAR ecosystem, and we understand the community’s concerns and assure that members of NEAR Foundation are actively working with the concerned parties including the Creative DAO moderators, with the primary focus to ensure that the DAO is effectively and successfully implemented as soon possible.
There are many examples of rushing the process leading to failure and we’re committed to getting this done right. We appreciate the community’s patience and support as we work towards a more efficient and inclusive funding and implementation process around this, and as we push toward further decentralizing the NEAR ecosystem.
The NEAR Foundation looks forward to continuing events like this with topics raised by the community!
