Nice work Oscar! Looks like a solid plan with solid outcomes that will benefit NEAR community.


Why include 4 tickets for NEARCON, which have not related to this event (Ethereum Mexico) ?


It is a Raffle of 4 tickets to NEARCON3 for the attendees of Ethereum Mexico 2023. NEARCON is a Blockchain event. Blockchain Developers, DApp users and attendees would have a change to know everting about it. Thanks for your question.

LFG! There’s great potential to rise awareness about the BOS and Near ecosystem with the Ethereans.

Thanks for the proposal. I think you have a great mission here, but we’re pulling back on MDAO funding for live events for Q4 as the focus for the NEAR ecosystem turns to NEARCon in November.

Again, the October proposal should be submitted from October 1-10, not in September.

More information about the new guidelines can be found here. Guideline

Hi @Bakaka thanks for sharing the guidelines and express your input.

Yes it is a great mission, and it is achievable. We are on track.

Okay, noted. We will cancel this proposal and submit a new one during October 1-10, 2023.

In our honest opinion, it does not sounds very aligned to not support live near-related events at anchor events like Ethereum Mexico 2023. Here some chains who are super active in Mexico: Polkadot, StarkNet, Vara Network, Solana, Algorand, Fuel Network, all doing IRL events around Ethereum Mexico 2023. - We cannot have NEAR missing the action.
The competition in Mexico is very tight as the last winners from Bogota, Waterloo, Korea has been Devs from Mexico. And a new breed of Devs and quality projects has been arised in the last years.

The Web3 people who is traveling around the World and assisting to Ethereum Mexico, are the NEARCON3 is looking for. And we are inviting them all through this IRL event.

That’s great looking for a great future of near LFG ! :tada: MarketingDAO Community
