DAO on-chain address (target wallet):

  • Are you in contact with the Developer DAO? Development of applications could benefit greatly from engaging with engineers. It should also be funded by development DAO as they are better suited to assess the technical viability and competence.
  • You are requesting money to pay artists at your own events? I can see how it is great for creating income streams but I do not see the benefit to the broader NEAR community - why should the Community Trust fund cover the entertainment expenses at your events?
  • What kind of tasks or projects can be assigned to members?
  • How would this look like?

Have you held any metaverse events in the past? Metaverse adoption has been very slow across the board (even in web2 where FB has invested billions). Would like to learn more about your strategy, tech stack to be used, any hurdles such as min. technical requirements for people to participate, etc.


I am glad to see the amount of quality project young fresh creative Dao is looking forward to executing. This is one of the best strategies I have seen to grow an active community so far.

At this time, we need to onboard individuals that will stay and grow with us. This approach makes sense to me, I look forward to seeing it come out well!

Kudos @larkim @truce


Hi @satojandro . Thank you for your response. Currently, for our dapp (w3music), we had a conversation with @williamx and @Paul . We would be working on it from April with the NDC initiatives. I just put it on the proposal to show what we have been doing


The payment assigned for performing artiste is our marketing plan to get more audience at the event. We would be paying artiste depending on the amount of fans they bring to watch them peform. This would encourage them to promote the show with their fan base and bring traffic to the event.
We understand the problem of low turn out of metaverse events, this is because web2 creatives are not given a real reason to be on the space and that’s what we are trying to do

We opened a mini grant program for active community members check details here.
We are assigning projects that would onboard new members and expand our community. Here are some of the proposals made by members

Multimedia presentation

Photography express

Africa ensemble night

Near trek initiative

I have participated 3 metaverse music performance. One for @tabear and @ted.iv Muti live sessions , another with Nxm and metaverse dao. During this sessions I observed that the people in attendance are mostly from near community, web 3 creatives.
Like I mentioned earlier, our goal is to introduce more web2 creatives to our events. Our major tool to make this work is to get the performing artist invite their fans to watch. These artists get rewarded depending on the number of fan base they can pull off at the event.
I hope I am able to answer all your questions. Thank you


Thank you @Supercoolkay
