NEAR PH (Philippines) Monthly Report -April 2021

Guild Name: NEAR PH (Philippines)

Monthly Highlights:


	l Interviewed GC Pascua, a prominent Filipino NFT artist on Paras. This talented artist is inspiring  collectors and artists alike in the Philippines to sign up for Paras. 

Youtube videos:

	l Tagalog Video Commentaries: screen sharing for easy navigation for Filipino audience, updates and demonstration is shown using the highlighted articles and news within the NEAR ecosystem. 
	l Downloadable Tagalog voice overs are for those who would like to listen to the content of NEAR articles while multitasking, such when traveling or doing chores. 
	l Since the Philippines is one of the most badly hit by the pandemic, more and more citizens find themselves out of work. A demonstration themed "how to earn during this pandemic" was aired. 

	l The articles on Medium have been craftily themed, using portmanteau combination of crypto words and familiar concepts. This type of approach is a fresh angle through which blockchain is seen. The articles themselves may not be that technical and academic; but the contents pull from different domains: history, politics, psychology, economics, science, philosophy, etc. This broader approach can make readers appreciate the ramifications of crypto in different aspects of life. 

Explainer Video:

	l The theme this month is on daily trading volume. The explainer videos theme is chosen so as to show how much money there is in crypto. An average joe in a first-world country may totally misunderstood crypto. How much more so people in the Philippines, a country not considered to be technologically updated. 


	l The quality of translations is not that perfect, at least not yet. However, the translations themselves can make reading easier for those who are not that well-read in English. 


	l This avenue has just been explored. And it seems that the team is enjoying it. This can also add to the catalog of memes that can be tapped in the future. 

Video content:

l Commentaries
l Interview
l Demonstrations
l Downloadable voice over audios
l Discussions 


	l Refinements have been made so as to be more valuable to the ecosystem. This is especially so as Philippine-audience is being targeted. 
	l The team may expand in a few weeks. This is so that repetitive tasks can be delegated and the core team is free to strategize on a macro scale.
