MOTION OF THE ROCKS is an experimental study group that meets at Platohedro interested in exploring the NEAR ecosystem, born out of a proposal to be and extension of the Motion Process in Crypto, a group of artists from the Dance Tech network that since September have been developing a series of virtual meetings to learn and understand more about the crypto economy and the possibilities of using it as artists . All this exploration is done under the NEAR protocol and its ecosystem (applications in the chain).
This is the first report of the proposal made in NEAR’s governance forums and approved in the voting mechanisms.
This first stage consisted of 3 sessions with people from the Cypherplato group (enthusiasts of the crypto world) and invited artists with very little knowledge of these new technologies.
These first sessions were essential in order to introduce both the Motion DAO project and the NEAR blockchain, and its ecosystem.
This report aims to share how these activities were carried out and what has resulted from them as well as the possible projection for the next stage.
SESSION 1 (ONLINE):
PRESENTATION: Motion DAO Group and Platohedro Group
This session was held online on November 13th with the participation of some of the members of Motion DAO and Motion Plato. The story of Motion DAO was presented to the Platohedro atendees, sharing the process and exploration carried out since September. Then each person presented themselves. The session was participative and the conversation was maintained by all. (check recorded material)
Study group participants from Platohedro:
10 out of the 12 have already created their wallets; the other four are pending to do so. This is due to various factors: not understanding the technology enough to feel comfortable or or not having a cellphone or computer with enough capacity to download the wallet.
3 NEAR tokens were transferred to each wallet created, waiting for the pending ones.
SESSION 2 (In person):
CONCEPTS AND 3.0 WEB TRAVEL TOOLKIT
The objective of this session was to understand the basic concepts and language around Cryptocurrencies, with the intention of having everyone at the same starting point before going into NEAR. Some in the group had already approached the world of cryptocurrencies, however half of the group did not have any prior experience or knowledge.
P2P / WEB1 / WEB2 / WEB3 / HASH / TOKEN / BTC / ETH / L1 / L2 / TRANSACTION / GOVERNANCE / SATOSHIS / DEFI / STAKING / SUPPLY / CREOWLOAN / SEED PHRASE / WALLET
NEAR PROTOCOL PRESENTATION AND WALLETS
The NEAR platform was presented by Alexander with the intention of helping each one create their wallet in order to explore the ecosystem, the NEAR Hispanic community that has been growing and the different projects that NEAR has been developing.
SESSION 3 (In Person):
EXPLORING THE NEAR ECOSYSTEM AND SHARING THE EXPERIENCE
Each participant shared what they had explored during the week on NEAR and how they had used their tokes.
EXPLORING SMART CONTRACTS UNDER THE NEAR PROTOCOL
Participating in the NEAR CERTIFIED DEVELOPERS, 5 days of intense learning and daring to create contracts that work on the NEAR chain. A first time experience in creating and developing contracts that can run on NEAR.
The Cyphersplato team explores the possibility of a platform for submitting proposals, voting, obtaining funds and archiving the experiences.
During these 5 days the group learned assembly script and Rust. Being the first time for all the participants it was difficult. Yet, we were able to create a “not so smart” first contract that was deployed. We are currently testing it and learning from it.
NEXT ACTIVITY (In Person):
CasAbierta 2021, December 11.
PRESENTATION OF THE MOTION DAO AND MOTION OF THE ROCK EXPERIENCE.
CasAbierta is Platohedro’s annual event that showcases everything that happened in that year through different activities such as talks, exhibitions and a fair. For this year we are having our first Crypto-Fair in which we will present the experience and everything that has happened with DANCE TECH, Motion-DAO, and Motion of the rock.
FUTURE WISHES AND INTENTIONS OF THE PARTICIPANTS:
- Continue to learn and explore NEAR.
- Staking on NEAR
- Apply the concept of DAO to a process or group in Platohedron as a prototype experiment in order to prototype the process at a micro level before taking it to an organizational - macro level.
Token per participant 3 NEAR/ 12 people / 36 NEAR
- 5 people still need to receive their 3 tokens each.
Once they have created their wallet it will be transferred.
Space / connection / materials 30 NEAR
Refreshments for two sessions 20 NEAR / 10 NEAR per session
29 NEARs remain to support crypto fair activity.
- For the sustainability of Platohedro part of the budget was used for the use of space and alos for investing in other projects of the ecosystem.
