Hello @Paul
Thanks for the review on our proposal. All funding for this project will be executed on Astro Dao. There are respective wallets belonging to Blaqk Stereo community members who will carry out the various tasks to ensure it comes out a success. Nothing in this project will be out sourced to people outside our ecosystem.
Lemme give a breakdown of the respective community members to carry out the tasks:

  • T-shirts: @TIMI timiphoenix.near

  • Digital art NFT for 29 artists: Marvelgreyart.near check out his IG here

  • Studio & Video: @Hawwal hawwal.near You can check my portfolio here

  • Further Mastering: @cotmusic (Which he will be supervising)

  • Guinness: @Hawwal (I’ll handle the receiving of the certs. for the artists).

The reason for this delegation is for accountability to ensure the funds are disbursed to the dedicated allocations. As we are a result oriented community.

In the coming weeks, we as a community intend, pushing majority of our traffic to Near social and this is our first major breakthrough content we desire our community to interact with as we engage and build in Near social. We don’t intend abandoning web2 media completely like twitter and the likes but our target is to drive engagement through this major content (which is the first ever Guinness world record NFT mint to Near). We will also be hosting weekly pop quizzes and weekly rewards for our most committed community members who are constantly interacting and getting the most awareness on “Near social” these amongst other things are plans we have in store for Near Social. We pulled it off in Astro Dao in the shortest minimal time possible and we will definitely pull this off on Near social. In relation to this (post the delivery of these contents), I’ll be having further discussions with @vandal regarding this historic mint as I reached out to him a while back to get he’s expertise onboard. I do hope he won’t be too busy to aid us. :slight_smile: Thank you :pray:t5:
