[REPORT] NEAR Native Community — May 2023

I would like to mention is that the guild only received one grant this year.
The grant we requested in April came in the 30th of May, and we haven’t even distributed anything from it yet.
We will do a number of activities in June, based on the funds received.
Also, given the fact that not much funds are allocated, it takes a long time for them to come, this summer we will have to reconsider the work and most likely we will not apply for grants.
We will report back in another activity report and continue our independent work.

Thanks for the great work and report.

Can you please help us know the dApps that we’re used most by your community during the last month?

Thank you.

hello Igboze. Thanks for your question.

Since we are still in Web3, when it comes to txs, we cannot determine where the transactions came from. In any case, even if we had the ability to track activity: our community is scattered around the world, and they also use VPNs. You will not be able to track a single transaction in a regional way.

However, feel free to take a look at our content, which itself encourages people to come and try out an dApp, be it HERE Wallet, Spin, Ref Finance, Meta Pool, Rainbow Bridge, Woo on Orderly, Sweat Economy products, Qstn, Burrow or whatever.

I also want to note that our community has seen a number of problems using some dApps, so it was difficult to use Paras in May.

I will add that all the necessary information is in our report in order to understand how the NEAR ecosystem as a whole worked in May and what users could do in the ecosystem, including our personal activities from the NEAR Native community offered to our members.

Thanks for replying.

I meant the dApps that you exposed your community to during last month.

Also, how was rewards distributed?

  1. Via telegram tip bot?
  2. Via AstroDAO?
  3. Via NEARDROP?
    Or which product on NEAR?

I ask all these because it’s important that all what we do, we should drive on-chain transactions.

Hello, Igboze.

Previously we used to be more active with AstroDAO, but after the tokens we sent 20 days ago to DAO still haven’t arrived - we don’t use it.
I’m guessing until they finalize it.

We will try to use the TipBot more often.
We’re also the only ones running quizzes on the blockchain from guilds, which is a real on-chain activity.
In the near future we will launch not only quizzes, but also a number of activities (we did similar for Aurora, it’s a kind of quest, when users can get tokens for the right code words).
And of course blockchain is involved here.

Also, our new quests on the Zealy platform will include activity on two networks (Aurora, NEAR).

But I would point out that this is a pretty spotty effort, in the sense that guilds and the NDC need to find a better way to retain our users, and engage them too.
It requires a comprehensive approach.
We need to work with projects together somehow and try other ways.
