Updated Project Timeline:

The VR DAO has onboarded several new Council members and wants to continue doing so. New and old council members are implementing bounties, re-engaging with the community and preparing the next several months of activity.

In this month of September, the main focus was to onboard a Developer, which was done! Welcome @sainthiago to the team.

In addition to that, we are focused on implementing strategies to increase the VR DAO sustainability and develop strategies to generate income.

Highlights:

** Onboarded 1 new council member and had a meeting to explain the protocols involving the NEAR Forum, Sputnikdao and the relationship with the Creatives DAO. The council members is:

  • sainthiago.near

** Supported MUTI DAO in this project

** Created and implemented a bounty to hire one part-time developer. This included funding the entire process (Writing and publishing the bounty, running interviews, etc) .

** Supported a project for the creation of a Motion Landscape in VR, to be showcased at the upcoming NEAR | CON, and which will be used to create several NFTs to sell on the VR DAO Mintbase store, plus implemented in 3XR and used to promote the VR DAO social media channels and the Near Protocol. The following report will be pasted here as soon as possible.

** After sponsoring a challenge for the Hackathon, council member @microchipgnu
judged it and decided on the prize split (2 projects were awarded; the 1st place will be shown to the community as soon as possible).

Airtable

** We continued supporting a bounty to get feedback from the community, regarding 3XR and Mintbase. That bounty was closed last week, and a list of ‘to-do-tasks’ was compiled.

@sainthiago will be working 0n it in close relationship with @microchipgnu

** Continued supporting a bounty to engage with the community in creating an accessibility guide for VR, with several positive replies from artists with and without physical disabilities.

** Continued supporting a bounty to reward articles who speak about color experience, with an extra incentive if the creators are willing to transform the article in a recorded or live (for a future workshop) video presentation.

** One of the new council members made a proposal for the creation of Motion Landscapes in VR, which will be used to create several NFTs to sell on the VR DAO Mintbase store, plus implemented in 3XR and used to promote the VR DAO social media channels and the Near Protocol.

** Revamped the TG channel and upped the engagement with the community there. At the moment, the TG channel has 52 members (39 last report).

** A proposal was created to streamline the organization within the council, with proposed payouts, which will adapted once the council agrees and the funding request for October is put into place.

** Council members @nearestchico and @nico have been engaging with the Production team of NEAR | CON to provide technical expertise to the organization of the VR DAO experience.

** Several sputnikdao payout requests from new and old council members, plus payouts from those engaging in bounties.

Sputnik DAO

Learnings:

*** The council of an important DAO must be balanced, so several boxes are checked, like expertise, community engagement, administrative work, etc.

*** We are trying to streamline the council engagement, so all tasks are done in a fair and balanced way, by all those involved.

*** One of the most difficult tasks when engaging with the community is to filter the most relevant proposals. Everyone’s attention is needed.

Next Steps:

**** For the months of September and October, the priority of the VR DAO will be to promote and support high quality VR Projects.

**** Will continue to look for more council members, ideally with a strong VR background and/or interest.

**** Will expand its scope and influence in the community, using the new instagram and twitter accounts to push for more members and general engagement.
