1. Linkdrops

Original post: [Proposal] Linkdrop Creation

Update: We created a campaign of 100 links to onboard new members. Up to now, 83 links have been used throughout activities. The remaining will be used as a linkdrop bank for onboarding in the future activities

2. [Proposal] Register for Legal Wrapper

Original post:

In order to conduct DAO’s future operations lawfully as a structured organization, we registered for Legal Wrapper in July. In the near future, it will be simpler to plan activities in Vietnam thanks to the registration of legal status.

We paid 39 DAI on Otoco.io 2 registration costs and the remaining money on Ethereum fees. We have taken action to register a legal entity for DAO after doing detailed research. The actual cost was ~$100 - the remaining amount was left in multi sig wallet for future transactions.

Metric reflection:

Successfully register for legal wrapper

The marketing work was done voluntarily with no budget covered from Marketing. Quote:

This month we opened a call for new positions:

However, base on the number of candidates & reflecting the need of VAD at this certain point, we decided to extend this call indefinitely with the rationale below:


  • Successfully legal wrapped. =>
    Series_Operating_Agreement.pdf (1.1 MB)

  • 174 members on Telegram so far (Last month was 75 and we surpassed the target) (new members onboarded through activities were taken care with Binance using)

  • 584 NFTs minted/114 minters (Last month: 424 NFTs minted/56 minters on Mintbase store) double the amount of minters

  • 1 community calls made with the strong bond of 4-8 members

  • 1 workshop on using Ref Finance, Near Wallet & Binance P2P on Aug 7th, 2022

  • 30 private calls with members to assist with Minting NFT & cash out rewards. (for those who didn’t attend the workshop or for those who feel unsure how to do it)

  • 1 workshop (1 offline) successfully organized

  • Collaboration events with local artists group on Facebook ( Vietnam Local Artist Group, VẼ MINH HỌA - Illustration Group, Digital Painting - Illustration)


  • Still, we feel the onboarding process is not quite smooth with so many calls envolved

  • Competitions/bounties has short term effects. => reduce resources on those, create smaller but more engaging bounties than big competition that consume DAO fund.

Next Steps:

  • Register for .org domain & build a website to seeking for resources from local sponsor & partners outside NEAR. (But yes we remain the mission to bring NEAR to our community)

  • Continue to expand community interaction through workshops & themed activities

  • Continue working to spread the words though medias & activities

  • Plan on a swag store to form a business model

  • Aim for 200 members on TG and 30% of conversion rate to active members
