  • Achievement information about the DAO

Near DigitalFashion Dao despite being a new Dao as well has only been funded once and has executed only one project on September before there was a pause on funding. Despite all the challenges and set back in the past few months in the Ecosystem, our Dao has strive to remain focus on it vision and purpose as the only Dao that has been directing it efforts and funding to activate the presence of Fashion in Near Ecosystem.

September 2022 happens to be first time we are executing a project a new Dao after been approved by the moderators, on that course we started on a good note by organizing Digital Fashion Workshop and masterclass introduce our Dao and build our own community in Near Ecosystem. We onboarded 10 creatives who had little or no knowledge about web3 or Near Protocol, we sensitize them and taught them the digital tools/softwares they need to know in order to practice digital fashion, we as well guide them through how they can maximize the Near Ecosystem and it DApps like Mintbase where they can mint their designs as wearable NFTs.

As a result of the workshop, 10 participants who attended the 2 days workshop were able to design 1 digital fashion arts on their own. This 10 designs in total which was made to be minted on our mintbase store is yet to be minted because we are yet to open a mintbase store as a Dao but at the moment this digital art is been stored in a secured Google drive hopefully to be minted once we get this approval on this quarter funding proposals because we have included a dollar equivalent of 6Near which is required to open a mintbase store on our 10 percent social media funding request.
These was designed by one of the participants who has zero knowledge about digital fashion during the workshop

Just in one month of funded project as a new Dao, our social media in all platforms has increased by 150+

  • Content and Social media stats:

Our DAO events has only occured once, sponsored by NEAR foundation. In the course of the event, we have 189 followers on all platforms, 4 videos on YouTube, 10 wearable NFTs which are yet to be minted but are stored in a secured Google drive.

This is our Linktree:


  • The Genre of our Dao is: FASHION

We have submitted and completed 1 proposal approved by Creatives DAO and sponsored by NF.

Before the pause on funding we had just two council members, but on resumption of funding we added a new Council member @HONCHO to be able to meet up to the new guidelines and task ahead.

  • Impact
    Near DigitalFashion Dao was created in August 2022 and executed it first project on September, since then our Dao has been an eye opener to the members of our community and during our workshop all the participants were happy to have the privilege of being part of the workshop because most of them never knew that there was such thing like Digital fashion or Near Protocol. In that direction we intend creating a community were digital fashion designers and craft makers will major on creating digital fashion designs, minting them on mintbase and attract more collectors to mintbase market place and exploring other DApps. We are working towards putting more energy on Dao to Dao collaboration which is targeted on mass onboarding of new NEARians.

Just in a short while of our existence we have onboarded over 20 members In our community, created 10 Near Wallets for new NEARians.
