Hmm, that’s a fair point. However, I think we on the @ConciergeTeam are very familiar with the values of Near Protocol and know what the dos and don’ts are.

That’s true, which is why I think it’s important that unless the person is directly from the Near Foundation, they have to have a) years of experience in business development and b) have built a reputation in the community, because trust I think is the key point here.

It’s an honor to work with you, bro! :pray:

True, and addressed above.

Interesting. They offered me the same price when I first visited the page 4 weeks ago. I just cleared my cache and reopened the page. It shows me now the same discounted price. :open_mouth:

Yes, report will be shared here and I will also document via Instagram Stories here: Kemals Instagram

Since it took a little longer with the processing and the prices had increased accordingly, @mecsbecs and I have decided that I first go to one event, so that the costs remain within the budget.

The European Blockchain Convention is coming up soon and by now there is also an agenda online. I have marked the most important panels that I find very interesting.


Hey Near Community,

Last week I came back from the European Blockchain Convention. Unfortunately, I caught Corona and was sick, so my report is a bit late.

Namely, I was at the European Blockchain Convention from 26-28 June.

The first evening was purely for getting to know each other and was only for VIP guests.

The 27th and 28th, on the other hand, were filled with talks on various topics such as Legal, CBDCs, NFTs, Self-Sovereign Identity, and much more. I will share my insights on the Talks below.

I made a total of 54 new contacts in the 2.5 days from a variety of industries, some of whom are considering partnering with NEAR.

QPQ is a layer 0 blockchain solution that allows you to enjoy the best features, services and opportunities of every networked protocol.

Satoshi Club
Satoshi Club is one of the largest crypto communities, with over 105k active members on Telegram alone. SC has agreed to cooperate with NEAR in exchange for media presence.

Satoshi.Art is an NFT marketplace that aims to differentiate itself from other marketplaces by partnering with Influencers who in turn educate their users about NFT through educational content, thus building a better connection instead of just selling.

AhoyConnect is a marketing tool with which you can bundle all data of a community member across all platforms. We from the ConciergeTeam could use such a tool, because we want to reward the most active members with airdrops or future incentives and it is possible with this tool. I have asked if it is possible to take the activity of the NEAR Wallet into the valuation of the user and it will be seen if that is possible. :slight_smile:

Betopia is a betting platform that combines the traditional betting industry with blockchain technology. It is the blockchain betting dream world for Esports, international sports and virtual casinos. Currently, the platform is still in development and the launch has been pushed back a bit due to poor market conditions, but I had an appointment today with Tanja and Max who are very confident to launch around Q4 and have great interest to develop on NEAR.

Farm.xyz is a farm aggregator where users have the ability to yield farm from pools of different providers and blockchains. They are currently looking for funding to launch the platform later this year.

Generally speaking, the event was a success. I made many new contacts and with some of them, I would even like to deepen the relationship.

If you have any questions, feel free to write me. :muscle:

I’m looking forward to the next event and thanks for the support! :pray:
