The Sandbox SputnikDAO Guide for Claiming Project Rewards

Dear Sandboxers and NEARians,

As we started reward for your collaborations with projects on Sandbox, we glad to share the updated guide how to claim reward for collaboration with projects.

Submitting a proposal through the Sandbox SputnikDAO is possible between 20th - 25th of each month. It is the period when contributors can create a forum proposal for us to review and send it in DM’s on discord to one of the moderators.
Simply put, you will have to create a post on NEAR governance forum where you describe all of your achievements, calculate your rewards based on the rolling opportunities list (or mention the reward in NEAR agreed on with the project/guild if you were working with one) (step 1), contact one of the Sandbox moderators to confirm (step 2) and submit your proposal to the Sandbox SputnikDAO (step 3).

Below you will find the detailed instructions on each step.

Step 0: Create an account on NEAR governance forum

Step 1: Create a report on NEAR governance forum

  • Describe all tasks you have completed and you wish to claim the reward for. Start by clicking on the grey label “+New Topic’’

Always use the following format for your posts:

[Title] → “Sandbox [Relevant month] Reward Claim of [Your discord handle]”

**IMPORTANT: do not forget to mention 1. your discord handle in the title of the post! 2. Relevant month between [ ] for which the reward is being claimed!

[Uncategorized] → Choose “Open Web Sandbox ” category
[Optional tags] → Choose "sandbox”, “daos”, “bounty”
[Main body] → This is where you describe your contributions in the following format:

  1. Is it an act or series?

  2. Type of Activity
    Choosing from the categories of the current rolling opportunities list (Content creation, Promotion: Social media NEAR Force, Content translation and subtitles, Sandbox Referral Programme, Vectors and Outreach)

  3. Briefly describe the activity (act or series or both)

  4. Provide the link to the end result

  5. Mention the relevant name of the project or guild, and give the link to the relevant project forum post

  6. Estimate your reward accounting for all the activities (acts or series or both) you have completed. This has to be in accordance with the rolling opportunities list.

*Note: If you are applying for several rewards, please describe every single act/series in this post and make sure ALL of the calculations are included here and backed up by the rolling opportunities list.

  • Click “+Create Topic”

Step 2: Contact a Sandbox Moderator

Send the link to your forum post to one of the following moderators (@Drav#2872, @Aluminium_foil#2198 , @vrdoingthings#8824 @mecsbecs) on Sandbox Discord server for a review. Once it is approved and you get a green light from the moderator, you may create a proposal on the Sandbox SputnikDAO

Step 3: Create a proposal on the Sandbox SputnikDAO

  • Sign in using your NEAR Wallet Account.

If you do not have one yet, check out this:

  • Click on ‘Create new proposal’

  • Choose ‘Payout’
    In the description mention your Discord handle and the handle of the Sandbox moderator who approved your forum post. Click ‘Continue’

  • Add the link to your forum post and fill in the amount approved by the moderator

*Note: Submitting a proposal to the Sandbox SputnikDAO requires a bond (held until vote passes) of 0.1 NEAR. After the proposal has been submitted, council members of the Sandbox SputnikDAO are able to vote “yes” or “no” on the proposal. The bond is returned to the proposer upon the successful approval of a proposal (this bond is used to deter spam proposals). In case of a rejection of the proposal, bond will not be returned to the proposer. Therefore, it is in your best interest to get the confirmation from the Sandbox moderator before you submit your proposal to the Sandbox SputnikDAO.

  • Finally, submit your proposal and expect your reward to be paid out within the maximum period of 7 days.
