Thanks for the proposal and listing out budget items. I think what you are aiming to do is a worthy cause, but in its current form I can’t support the proposal because it is combining funding for marketing activities and non-marketing activities that we typically do not fund (legal costs, mintbase store openings, for example).
Can you take the comments from @Dacha into consideration and only include marketing activities and we can review a revised proposal?
@mr_free hi, invite you here by recommendation of @Dacha
could you please review our proposals, here and to Creatives
appreciate your advices about how Belarus DAO can start its activities with support of OnboardingDAO
also couldn’t find such a category, how to mark the proposal
Yeah, Right! Not few months but few days actually because the requests are considered in order.
We do had some limit on number of projects that can be covered under our budget. NDG shifted the projects to next month that were out of budget. NDG got its funding on the month of feb for the first time which was summed up in projects that are submitted in report.
Rest projects got pushed to March month. The funding is still pending for that month. The guild leaders/lead designers had the meeting with Community team. They asked for few changes in our plans before approving the funds.
A short brief of what the changes would be in NEAR Design Guild is that we would ask the project itself if they have funds and cross check if they got funding for design from any NEAR Foundation or not.
If they are capable of paying independently we will charge from them.
If the project is not capable enough, then we will cover from the basic funding we would get from NEAR.
These steps would help us to become self sustainable and keep the balance.
just following rules about 30% from amount
300usd here and (reduced to be in 2000usd total) 300usd in creatives = 600usd
divides for 2 persons who will work on it @techdir and @Jull-gull by 300usd each - is it a lot for the work of starting new DAO for onboarding the country with huge amount of creative projects that will do their activities on NEAR ?
i’m here as advisor, don’t ask any payment.
(Continuing discussion about the last 3 points)
What and where events are planned for the onboarding process (meetup, online meetings, party, other kind of events … )?
How many people do you expect to onboard?
As I understand, you need 0.3-0.5N to activate the wallet , connect to the marketplace and mint NFT, correct?
the number of people mentioned in the list + their social media followers + people around - we plan to onboard half of Belarus at least
for first month there is a plan to prepare for all these events by creating tutorials and educational aids, to start and grow social media channels. this month we’ll present educational materials on first meetups, and see how it works. so we’ll make a plan of events for the next proposal
In the first months we are planning offline meetings in cafes, because it is easier to attract people there. they will mainly focus on more individual work with artists and influencers from their inner circle.
During these first meetings, we will test our training materials and better understand what opportunities artists are interested in at the initial stage.
How much is ‘some N’? Transactions on Near are cheap.
Very ambitious and not real.
Let’s make the small steps.
How many events (and what events) do you plan? How many new users do you expect to onboard?
I understand that is a hard question, but we need to have an understanding. We will need the report and we will need to compare the plan and result.
@johanga , you are not new, you are the advisor for this dao (as I understand), and I think you know about it.
If you subscribed to RU-community, probably you know that there was a contest for creating educational and tutorial content about Near and Aurora Ecosystem. I think the most of content you can find. You don’t need funding to start social media channels. Also, creating plan is not time expensive job.
Probably individual meeting will have more impact, but they are not effective at the start. You can spend much time and efforts and get many rejections.
I think it better to invite them all together, talk about Near and then choose the individuals who will be interested in it and provide an onboarding process for them.
I support your idea and enthusiasm for onboarding new people and create strong “Хай жыве Беларусь” community, but I would like to see a clear plan and steps (events, activities, growth).
i meant 0.2N = for activation + transactions fees
with nearnames.com so we’ll have a stats
very much real. in past i’ve organized festivals in Belarus with 1500-3000 attendants, and the team is also in context. we definately understand the potential/capacity of the project.
until i’m busy for some hours, want to share Introduction with you.
if more questions will appear to you , please leave it here as well, i’ll be back with as much clarifying replies as possible
