Our bounty hit 1.4k views

We were invited to put Exhibition 8 on cryptovoxels at the venue given by @ghini curator and council of FEMINU DAO

We had more than 20 registrants in the bounty and our Cryptovoxels classes had the professor available in English and Portuguese simultaneously, which made it possible for people from @goadao to attend the classes.

Lessons learned: Having an internal rulebook makes us more organized and prepared for unforeseen events, as well as gives us a north on the compass, we can always check the rules and improve our work. In addition, it creates a common professionalism and commitment to the goals of the DAO by the members.

We realized how important it is to have bounties for the community to participate and have fun.

We saw how important it is to have a store for minting the works of the bounties and exhibitions so that the artwork gains diffusion, promotion, visualization and access in the NEAR.

We hit the nail on the head in having chosen 8 mega special values to guide our DAO, for, it creates identity of the DAO at NEAR and principles that will both be the identity of the DAO and will govern the projects it proposes and executes.

Next steps: Create the Dao store at mintbase, where future participants after trainings can coin their works. Create a bounty, an exhibition and classes for the month of May. And if possible activate the social networks more through

marketing dao funding.
