Hi, it’s gonna take me a while to collect the wallet addresses from the ambassadors.
At this point, I could share a google table with a list of all the ambassadors

I have serious concerns with this ambassador program and its potential influence on the NDC. We are basically facilitating individuals to create paid fanbases who can very easily influence both governance decisions and public opinion.

What safeguards are in place to ensure that this program will not be abused by some individuals? Are all these ambassador chats public?
Is the TC aware of this program?


Hello! I do believe your concerns are not worth it. We have over 50 leaders in the Ecosystem who are also part of NDC and build their own Communities (regionals (like Africa, Turkey, Vietnam, etc.), Influencers (Neko, Shitzu), NFT., etc. As an example: the last wave of the I am Human app registration was associated with the active work of the African community.


Thank you for your proposal. As one person who developed the DAO from scratch, I would like to suggest update the DAO approach, which was spoken at the DAO launch in 2023:

  • AC DAO should have a form (one point of entry, public form) for all Aurora Ecosystem developers and builders; promote in everywhere; have at least 10-20 leads monthly;

  • Proactively reach out to Aurora Eco founders; has a spreadsheet to track results https://dappradar.com/rankings/protocol/aurora

  • Work with Aurora Labs (in part of the Partners program pipeline: Grow your project on Aurora). Aurora Community DAO can support some projects after DD.

  • For ambassador program:

  1. I would like to see a dashboard to track on-chain/ off-chain data (recently, the Community used this portal https://auroradao.club)
  2. All tasks should be focused on Ecosystem development; the list of tasks should be visible to the ambassadors and Community;
  3. The number of tasks should be significantly increased.

It was an initial draft. I am suggesting to prepare similar:

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Regarding the part about the ambassador programme. At the moment we are forming tasks for the second level, they will have more on-chain activities.(At the moment we are facing the problem that many projects just don’t work, and we need some time to reach out to the team, and agree on cooperation) As well as there will be videos about the projects, testing applications, infographics, and threads in social networks.
