NEAR x CODAME Guild (China)Monthly Report-March 2021

Hi my name is iOTA chan, I am an architect, artist and community manager at CODAME. We started with NFT at CODAME 10TH Anniversary ART+TECH Festival. From there CODAME build the Community Partnership with NEAR Protocol.

In February, the NFT boom has created an explosion of curiosity and confusions in the NEAR’s Chinese Wechat group. CODAME has been helping artists Minting NFT since JULY 2020. With my artist and community builder background I felt necessary to jump-in and offer support to the Chinese Artists Group. I did not have my own Guild at March. I teamed up with @peter (Berryclub Chinese Guild) and start contributing right away.

By April, I needed help navigating the NEAR Guild system. I have talked with @Angela(China team); @chloe (Creatbase); @OrvardJam (Sandbox); @sashahudzilin (Human Guild) in order to find the best possible way to continue my Community effort to NEAR community.

I’ve been given direction to start my own Guild (in process), and to submit the March report here. I realize it is a little late. I will be submitting report on time going forward.

Community Engagement:

Community Engagement takes the most of the time but also an area hard to measure. When questions has raised; I do my own research and talk to industry professionals to make sure the answer is accurate, questions can be easy like wallet issues, can be hard like “ownership” around NFTs witch requires deep dive into this New Industry.

Since I took everyone’s question seriously, great relationships have build with artist, developers, tech professionals and journalists.

Those feedback means a lot to me.
