[Report] KIL Dao Monthly Report for August 2022

KIL DAO’s month of August was quite the rollercoaster - we had the opportunity to deal with our first serious challenge (tech issues galore), and have come out on top with our highest ever turnout and onboarding by a country mile at the end of the month. To recap, we announced in the August Proposal our intention to double down and focus on our most successful concept: MetaStraits, where we pair music artists from 2 different countries in Asia for each Metaverse performance to achieve a cross pollination of fans in attendance just like the model of a physical music festival.

MetaStraits Volume 4

MS4 KIL Square

We had an exciting lineup planned with Singaporean songsmith Umar Sirhan and Malaysian crooner Roshan Isaac scheduled for the bill for the event, and began Umar’s set when tech issues hit the parcel (e.g. lagging, glitching) and started affecting the audiences experience of the sets, causing many of them to drop out. Umar was able to hit the KPI’s set but our team couldnt troubleshoot and resolve in time for Roshan’s set, so we had to move him to MetaStraits 5 (with an incredible outcome eventually)!

We managed to onboard 23 new users to the NEAR ecosystem just from Umar’s side by gifting them NEAR wallets:

  1. wherearethefruits.near
  2. umarsirhan.near
  3. chaseurodrigues.near
  4. yasiraaa.near
  5. hadiawzm.near
  6. jdzong.near
  7. shayajevski.near

  19. wovensound.near
  20. tohsias.near
  21. xinyuuu.near
  22. umiakilah.near
  23. nuhanuba.near

Umar also executed an interesting NFT drop format by airdropping the following exclusive token which gave each holder access to a G-Drive link with instrumental elements of his new single for them to play with and create their own song:

MetaStraits Volume 5

With the less-than-ideal outcome of MetaStraits Volume 4, KIL DAO council planned, pushed, marketed, and executed a mega-event by inviting all the artists back and redesigning the posters for MetaStraits Volume 5 - an over 1-hour long event with an incredible lineup of verified and independent musicians.

So let’s get straight to the result: Over five hundred in attendance!

It was wild! We want to share highlights of the event first before diving in to the individual reports of the wallets and NFTs gifted because of how sick the pictures look:

Up first at 8pm was Umar who kicked it off strong with his new music and delicate R&B vocals!

Up next at 8:20pm was Roshan who carried on the momentum with his Sinatra-esque crooning

And finally, the man of the hour, our Instagram-verified producer with over 100K monthly listeners on Spotify, Foxela, who closed the show with his die hard fans even synchronised dancing!

Summary of August 2022 Goals and Milestones

  • Onboarded 64 new members to the NEAR ecosystem gifting them free NEAR accounts
  • Launched and rewarded NFT’S to our guest via Mintbase
  • Pulled a total attendance of over 550 pax for both events at The Playground, Cryptovoxels.
    *KIL DAO continues to successfully host and grow bigger MetaStraits shows
    *KIL DAO has added @foxela.near, @wherearethefruits.near, @umarsirhan.near, @roshanisaac.near and @selestra.near to our music performer ecosystem

KIL would like to thank the Creatives Dao, @creativesdao-council and NEAR for the opportunity. We plan to execute one more month of digital MetaStraits in September 2022 before pivoting to a physical event hopefully in conjunction with the official NEAR Singapore group in October 2022. In that regard if anyone in the @creativesdao-council is able to put us in touch with a decision maker in the group it would be deeply appreciated. Until then, we loo forward to trying to top off our record numbers in the coming month!
