Updated Project Timeline

As we received the approval pretty late, we took some time to finish our projects, but they were all completed in time for sending the report and the proposal on the right day.


We started by continuing the partnership with the Incubadora DAO, both in the creation of the TPD Seminars project and in the selection of topics of interest to both DAOs. Next, we started the project by selecting the proposals sent by the Professors. We are already articulating the combination of resources from the two DAOs to maintain the monthly discussion project on art, technology, culture and philosophy. Then, we boost the Telegram group for The Philosophers DAO Community (which now has 91 members - academics, masters and doctors). We had an increase of 284.38% compared to last month. In this group we sent tutorials so they would have more information about NEAR, NFTs, and our projects. Many of them are interested in creating their Near Wallets (our next step will be to make a Call to offer more information to increase the engagement of people in NEAR and in our community). One of the main reasons why our telegram was boosted were the 2 bounties that we released for telegram stickers and for producing art from philosophical thought experiments. They were both a success and brought many people from other guilds to our telegram.

The seminars were a real success, we had more than 340 views with subscribers from Brazil and other countries. All videos are now available on our YouTube channel. Furthermore, we onboarded fifteen new members on Near Wallet (between Professors and Students). We had an increase of 300% compared to last month. So, in June we had 4 talks, 12 NFTs on NEAR, 4 wearables on Voxels, 4 flyers to share the seminars, 14 telegram statik stickers, 1 partnership with another DAO (Incubadora DAO), and we started our social networks. The Philosophers DAO YouTube channel has now 759 subscribers (we had an increase of 3,69% compared to last month) and each of the seminars has so far the following views:

Seminar 05# - held on June 24, has so far had 125 views.

Seminar 06# - held on June 29, has so far had 54 views.

Seminar 07# - held on June 30, has so far had 42 views.

Seminar 08# - held on July 01, has so far had 54 views.


Resumes of PhD professors (onboarded):

PhD. Eduardo Vicentini de Medeiros - Federal University of Santa Maria (vicentini.near)


PhD. Jônadas Techio - Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (jonadas.near)


PhD. Adriane Möbbs - Catholic University of Pelotas (mobbs.near)


PhD. Std. Nykolas Motta - Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (nikolas_friedrich.near)


PhD. Nara Figueiredo - University of São Paulo (nara-fi.near)



We could realize that we need to talk individually to each person, in order to convince the person to open the wallet and know the community. We could learn that we should ask the speakers to bring their students. We came to understand that it is necessary to offer a course so that people can better understand how Web3 works and also offer more in-depth information about the NEAR ecosystem. We believe this will significantly increase our metrics over the next month.

Next Steps

To start bounties for the community, in order to be in contact with other DAOs and bring people to our telegram and philosophers to the blockchain. Prepare new activities (projects) allied to the ones we already have and that are helping a lot for the growth of our DAO, to be presented in the Funding Proposal in July.
