Hey @communitysquad and NEAR Community
Funding scheme: One-time
NEAR is set to be present at Consensus 2022. This proposal is for a community-led meetup at a local venue near the Austin Convention Centre. In association with MetaPool, NEAR Austin Hub, and NEARxPublish, we’ll be hosting a 3-4 hour community event with NFT artworks, talks, and networking.
Opportunities as big as Consensus aren’t often, and this is NEAR’s biggest event next to NEARCON.
@David_NEAR is involved in the organization of the event and will be on the ground to assist in achieving our stated metrics (below).
Expected impact and value you foresee for the NEAR ecosystem/community
In recent months, NEAR has experienced exponential growth, both in terms of on-chain metrics (live accounts) and the wider social media footprint.
The goal of this Community Event is to leverage the momentum that NEAR is experiencing, in association with the increased social media presence and in-person presence at Consensus, to its maximum potential.
We plan to have 4-5 speakers, the final lineup is TBA. Current speakers include Claudio (Meta Pool) and David (NF).
- 100 Attendees (this is the maximum number of attendees that the (current) venue allows
- 100% Growth of NEAR ATX Telegram
- 50% Growth of the NEAR ATX Twitter
- 30+ Organic social media shares from attendees (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook)
- 100% of attendees without a NEAR wallet have created a NEAR Wallet
