Dear Near Foundation Team,

I trust this message finds you in good health and spirits. My name is Oyelami Nurudeen, and I am reaching out to you on behalf of the Codedforum Blockchain Forum. Codedforum serves as a pivotal platform for collaboration, knowledge dissemination, and community engagement within the blockchain ecosystem. It has played a crucial role in facilitating meaningful interactions among blockchain enthusiasts, developers, investors, and industry experts.

Previous Funding:
It’s essential to note that Codedforum has never received any external funds. Since its inception, we have relied solely on our team’s financial resources to build and maintain the forum.

Proposed Initiatives:

Platform Enhancements: We propose allocating resources towards technical upgrades and feature enhancements to optimize Codedforum’s performance. This includes acquiring a dedicated web hosting server for enhanced reliability and speed, alongside implementing user-friendly interface enhancements and introducing new features to enrich user interaction and content discovery.
**Community Outreach: **Our plan entails expanding our community outreach efforts to engage new members and foster deeper connections within the Codedforum community. This encompasses targeted marketing campaigns, active participation in industry events and conferences, and forging strategic partnerships with blockchain organizations to broaden our reach and visibility.
Educational Resources: We are committed to developing comprehensive educational resources, tutorials, and guides to empower users with the requisite knowledge and skills to thrive in the blockchain domain. These resources will encompass a diverse array of topics, ranging from blockchain fundamentals and Near Protocol to smart contract development and decentralized applications (DApps).
Incentive Programs: Incentivizing active participation and contributions within the Codedforum community is paramount to our vision. We propose implementing incentive programs such as community tokens, to reward users for their engagement, valuable contributions, and participation in community initiatives. This initiative aims to cultivate a culture of collaboration and incentivized engagement among our members.
