As a local guild, we intend to find overlap between goals of Near Yorkers and the global NEAR ecosystem. Our mission: coordinate projects for sustainable community growth + development. Let’s create a world where all people control their data, money, and the power of governance.
Total Expenses: $12,000
The NYC Bitcoin Center agreed to host a 24-hour event* (Saturday to Sunday, August 28-29) in their large, hacker-friendly space for $2500. We also have an opportunity to produce an event at the Superchief NFT Gallery (date TBD ~ probably for a closing party).
*payment required 1 week in advance
We are planning to hire members of the “Blockchain@Columbia” student group to manage operations, including promotional support. I’m also part of the “Lion DAO”
Prize Pool: $5,000
These funds will be distributed to specific project DAOs via the Near York DAO, which will be created prior to August 27. We are considering an earlier distribution (Sunday, August 29) to incentivize IRL participation.
For Registrations and Press Mentions:
$5 per hacker and $50 per blog / article.
We are looking forward to contributing to many more hackathons and other kinds of events. Our motto: “Think universally ~ act locally & globally!” How might NEAR help NYC achieve its goals?
@jlwaugh It’s good to see that you are one of first on the field operations too!
I would also love to arrange a hackaton, help people step into the decentralized world in my city but I guess I miss a developer
Wonderful!! That’s Correct $3k towards the Mainnet after-party Sept 22nd and then the balance will go towards covering the cost of the venue for the NFT.NYC after-party at the Blockchain Center Nov 2nd. So we will only be needing to cover the food&bev and whatever else , etc for November 2nd
