We are happy with the organic growth achieved during this first month. We hope our proposal for funding ([PROPOSAL] Funding for NEAR Malaysia Guild (Mar-Apr)) can be approved soon so we can book the physical event, merchandise, etc. Without a proper physical event we see no effective way to rally the Malaysian community around NEAR. We hope the Marketing DAO can soon pronounce itself about our proposal.
