Open Web Gov Challenge: Project Proposals

Hackathon Update

The Open Web Governance Challenge has been running for 2 weeks, and I’d like to highlight some project proposals. You still have time to share ideas, create a project proposal (example), form your DAO, and solve real problems!

Projects are due Saturday, June 5 at 5pm EST.

Grand Prize: $5000 in NEAR

Runner Up: $2000 in NEAR
Honorable Mentions: $500 each

Each team is expected to give a 5-minute presentation of their projects to the judges on Sunday, June 6 at 10am EST. If you can’t make it, please coordinate with the Metagov council to send in a 5-minute video.

A fantastic Panel Discussion and all the proposals are awesome. Just FYI I have created another DAO futarchygov.sputnikdao.near as I set wrong my NEAR address as a solo council member. Now the previous DAO futarchy.sputnikdao.near is deprecated. All your insights are welcome! Thanks

Hey there,

Thank you!

I just wanted to clarify that the Arroz Estúdios proposal is only the one for integrating NEAR through a payment app (the second one here in line). The other two have been submitted by me but for a different project which is not related to Arroz but the muti DAO.
