[PROPOSAL] NEAR EU DAO council remuneration

Dear Marketing DAO,

We, Anastasia and I, hereby submit this proposal to request remuneration for the work completed during the period of August to November 2023.

Brief introduction to what happened. Last year, NEAR Foundation started elections under the subsidiary RC-DAO where community members could apply to become council members. Anastasia and I applied for council members for the NEAR EU DAO and ended up being elected by the community.

Anastasia and I were assured that we can build a regional community under the NEAR EU DAO to unite all regional communities in Europe and make our proposals to the Regional Communities DAO in the future.

Anastasia and I then set to work and completed the following tasks at the time in question.:

  1. Established communication channels with regional community leaders to gather insights and feedback.
  2. Conducted extensive research to understand the landscape and identify opportunities for growth and development.
  3. Organized regular meetings to ideate, discuss, and collaborate on strategic initiatives.
  4. Drafted comprehensive documents outlining the proposed Values & Community Guidelines, Code of Conduct, Governance Structure, Strategy, Budget, and Timelines.
  5. Developed a Governance Framework and Budget proposal.

Despite our diligent efforts, we did not receive any feedback or acknowledgment from the Marketing DAO regarding our budget planning endeavors. Subsequently, the Globe DAO published a proposal encompassing similar activities to ours, which received swift approval from the Marketing DAO within a week.

In contrast to the Globe DAO Council, Anastasia and I have been democratically elected by the community. It is of paramount significance that we have received sustained assurance that, as Council members, we will guide the NEAR Europe DAO and secure funding over an extended duration. However, as we found out, this is not the case.

Considering the substantial effort and time invested in completing mentioned tasks, we respectfully request remuneration for our work during the period of September to November 2023. Based on other proposals, we propose remuneration of $2,000 per person per month, which brings us to a total of $12,000 for Anastasia and me.

The funds would be requested in a separate proposal and would be split as follows:

  • @AnaNastya (ananastya.near) = $2,000 x 3 months = $6,000
  • @Kemal (kemo.near) = $2,000 x 3 months = $6,000

We kindly ask the Marketing DAO to thoroughly review our proposal and provide appropriate remuneration for the work completed.

Thank you for your consideration.


Anastasia and Kemal
