Profile - Narau - NEAR Forum - narau.near
Hey, everyone! I’m a Brazilian Master in biomedical engineering and I work with medical image reconstruction, design of human body and prosthetics 3D models, and 3D printing. This career segment guided me to the arts and since 2016 I work with digital painting. In August 2021, I started studies on human portraits and botany. I joined the NEAR community in November 2021 through the fraDAO group in an NFT Experience Design workshop, where I learned about NFTs, platforms and cryptocurrency transactions. In April, I was invited by fraDAO to teach about advanced digital painting in Photoshop. Recently I gave a Blender workshop for beginners to our members and we’re now collaborating in the dev of NEAR Hub spaces.

“My multidisciplinary projects use photographs, NFTart, videos, installations, photobooks, webseries and three-dimensional objects that address notions of time, isolation and fragility, often associated with the female universe. Since 2020, I have been exploring the blockchain ecosystem as an artist and DAO council member. What initially constituted a technological research to develop my own creations evolved into a greater involvement with the digital art community.”
Frado - frado.near - frado.com.br
Frado has been dedicated to the arts since he was a child. Born, in 1979, in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil, in a collaborative environment, as his parents, in addition to being married, worked together at Ag Comunicação Visual, where they developed Public Relations, Graphic/Visual Arts and Special Projects. At the age of 5, he started playing the guitar and never stopped, always curious about how the world works, he became a multifaceted artist and self-taught in various topics, where he found the academic school super uninteresting. It’s natural research, as it is used in the objectification of ideas into something concrete in Music, in various forms of Arts, Architecture, Electronics, Sound Art, Art installations, Video Art, inventions, Virtual Reality (VR), philosophies and branding.
His ART devotion, resulting in 2022, won 2 Golden Lions in Cannes in collaboration with Tátil Designer in Carnaval do Rio Brand, the same partner developing in Rio 2016, The Paralympic multisensorial sculpture.
Techne is a worldwide and ancient word (in ancient Greek: τέχνη). Objectifying in various media, different materials and analog and digital platforms has always been its quality. Restlessly, he continues to objectify his path and the world around him, in real and Virtual (VR).

details of impact
Social, Technological, educational, cultural and economic impact, for the community and ecosystem
In Q1 fraDAO begin to incubate a big farm in Brazil: “ Fazenda Cosmica” and also “Casa Cosmica – Restaurant and Co-working” in São Paulo, creating the “COSMO” Token. We intend to onboard 500 new members in 2023, to create self-sustained projects and to create economy activity using NEAR Protocol.
Our mission is to include and give access for elderly and middle-aged women artists, taking them out of the technological, digital, social, and financial vulnerability zone. Since December 2021 we gather female artists living in Brazil, Canada, Italy, Russia, Portugal and collaborated in NFT projects with Ina DAO, Hype DAO, Family DAO, Graffiti DAO, Afrostar DAO.
In addition to incentivize female artists and technologists between the ages of 30 and 91 to create and jump out of the zone of vulnerability and ostracism, we were able to disseminate Web3/Near information to their relatives, children, husbands, and grandchildren.
We have noticed that the ladies are more productive; there are artists who have already made more than 1000 NFTs in 3 months, in PARAS.
We were invited by an international event, ambassador of NFT Brasil “2023”, NFT RIO, Smart Summit 2023, Rio Innovation Week, to give lectures and pitching about DAO structures, about fraDAO actions within NEAR ecosystem, and our metaverses (we use NEARHub).
Likewise, we show that the social and economic impact of digitalization can be radius and not only pyramidal. Furthermore, we practice the circular form on our community relations.
We believe that group thinking, incubating big communities, workshops, artistic grants, outreaching, governance, assistance, social responsibility, education, and projects that embrace art, mixed with infrastructure projects, are the path of fraDAO. We want our projects to circulate in the ecosystem, expand and be replicated.

FraDAO’s goal or objective:
All final details
We aim to gather creative minds and build a professional community with people who value true connections, healthy experiences, and new ways of working.
People who are progressive, inclusive, and unprejudiced. Who want to work in teams and collaborate with others. Learn and spread knowledge.
Our vision for the future of the community and how we hope to contribute to achieving it:
Our creative community strive to make a living with art projects working solely in Brazil. As FraDAO engages in the international web3 ecosystem and collaborates with Near projects we hope new commercial and creative opportunities, as well as the contact with new technologies will arise and empower Brazilian female artists.
Why do we believe we would be a good addition to the community and what is the main value we hope to receive from the community:
Our team has been working remotely for years, we are motivated, active at the web3 ecosystem and passionate by technology.
We value artists and we also value funds. We want to preserve awareness in the development of creativeDAO. Our intention is to build self-sustainable projects at Near blockchain in the long run, also to create Dapps in the next quarter. We are studying and getting certified for this to happen.
We are somehow concerned with the lack of dedicated marketing funds. We see our members are passionate about our decentralized projects but there is no one passionate about working for free in our community, this ends up slowing down active engagement and project development (as we do not apply pyramid schemes neither exploit our members). We strongly believe in the circular concept of web3 and want to guarantee our artists are fairly paid for their work in the ecosystem we are building together.
We want to keep the community alive with someone taking care of each social media account on a weekly basis. One of fraDAO’s value is to never exploit a member. We have to take care of the branding of fraDAO and the NEAR Protocol: quality above all.
We want to maintain the great relationship with NEAR Hubs and seek more DAOs to do joint actions and become a self-sustainable DAO
Roadmap to reach the goal
September : EDUCATE and VALUE
Offer a free AI workshop to engage our members and onboard new blockchain users.
Offer a paid artist residency for the most active artists in our community to create fraDAOs Avatars. Those avatars will be animated and used for promotional and educational materials.
October : ENTERTAIN and ENGAGE GLOBAL
- Participation at ETH Milan with the CreativesDAO community: We will display our artists NFTs and site specific immersive artworks. Collaborating music Near stages with Rapper and Jam Sessions
November : ENGAGE LOCAL
- Internal DAO meetings to brainstorm and validade ideas for DApps development.
December: CREATE LOCAL
- Prototyping and testing one or two DApp ideas
2024: CREATE GLOBAL
- Partnering with other Near DAOs to launch and scale out top 3 DApps
- Launch our own token
How the longer term goal is divided into milestones making the DAO reach there:
With quality projects that respect all the standards and constitution of NDC, CreativeDAO and the NEAR Forum. In the long term we want to have a series of creative Dapps, represent NEAR at the NFT Brazil in São Paulo during the Biennale, we were invited to be an ambassador for the event and in september Frado will be a speaker of Blockchain Rio with 15,000 audiences in the event. Engage with international digital art events.
We have a team of brilliant people with great character, that makes all the difference, we are here to do our best and not to get the funding and do the project anyway. We have accessed funding in the past and we know exactly how to deliver value for the ecosystem and our members. We also understand how hard it is to get funded, so we are conscious to always praise NEAR in our very well structured and complex projects.
We love complex projects of governance, art, technology and branding.
What will the community or the team members’ role be:
The role of the community is to create new experiences and make NEAR blockchain well known and trusted. Our team members are people who already work in complex and long term projects.
Together we hold extensive experience with research, strategy, innovation and trends for companies in different segments. Our councils have previously worked on planning and ideation events and taught workshops, especially for third sector organizations, academia, and entrepreneurs.
We are focused on involving the fraDAO community to pass all our knowledge and make them self-sufficient by next year. We are here to do our best for the ecosystem!
