The N-ROLE project is all about creating the tools needed for mass adoption.
Crypto has hit the mainstream… but it still has a long way to go to reach mass adoption. This project aims to find ways to leverage existing platforms and technologies, and develop events to assist the NEAR community. The N-ROLE DAO will reach out to other DAOs and projects to work together to achieve this goal.
This project is divided into three blocks:
#1 - NEAR Frame
Objective - use innovative hardware to communicate directly to the NEAR community and raise awareness of the NEAR ecosystem.
Four years after Bitcoin was created the first bitcoin ATM was launched. There are now nearly 14,000 ATMs installed in 58 countries worldwide. these physical machines create a unique presence and provide a simple way for anyone to buy and sell bitcoins.
The NEAR Frame aims to be a similar physical portal to explore the NEAR ecosystem. A prototype unit is in development using a digital signage display running android os and custom CMS software - with funding provided by yolodao.sputnik.near (link)
I will be making an unboxing video to demonstrate the NEAR Frame functionality and hope to post this before the end of the hackathon.
Later this year we intend to launch the NEAR Frame as a product - available to order and purchase in NEAR tokens.
#2 - NEARFEED
Objective - create software tools to facilitate communication via the NEAR Frame and support community projects and events.
Aim to develop a NEARFEED android app that will be installed on the NEAR Frame. This app will provide links to the latest digital content on NEAR projects - imagine a photo album style UI with an image for each active NEAR project. The user can click on a project and link to a webpage, video or token data… the possibilities are endless!
The first proof of concept will showcase:
NFT cards created on the PARAS platform
news content provided by NEARWEEK
information on the first NEAR BEER FEST
N-ROLE DAO will be actively reaching out to the NEAR community to find the best digital content and will look to fund new digital content creators.
Currently using an off the shelf CMS software solution to test ideas, i will post a repo on github with more information next month.
#3 NEAR BEER
Objective - to organise a virtual beer festival to showcase the best of the NEAR ecosystem.
Since the beginning of time beer has been a part of community building. The earliest currency was barley - used to make beer and bread. There are millions of craft beer fans across the world.
Decentralized Brewing Co (DBC) was launched on Paras platform this year - the first community brewery built on the blockchain.
The brewery has created OWNER cards - virtual shares with voting rights and minted $BEER Tokens on tkn.farm as the brewery’s social currency.
DBC is now ready to host the first virtual NEAR BEER FEST - a two day event combining the best of craft beer and crypto.
To coincide with the festival, the brewery will brew the first batch of #nftbeer - a delicious blend of craft beer, nft cards and social tokens. This limited edition canned beer will be available as part of the package of beers, merchandise and other goodies that will be shipped to participants in the festival.
N-ROLE DAO is in discussions with NxM/DAOrecords to collaborate on the event programme. Stay tuned for more details!
