The beginning of NEAR Argentina
Hello again everyone! This is an update on my recent post regarding the creation of a NEAR Guild in Argentina.
We have created in just a couple of days a close community and already managed to get a small team to kickstart this long journey into our main mission which would be NEAR and Blockchain adoption in Argentina.
Our Mission and Vision
As mentioned earlier we are addressing a very important issue here in Argentina which is Adoption.
What we are currently seeing is an increasing number of users in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency in general. But there seems to be a lack of proper education on the subject.
Because of that we decided that our solely goal will be getting Blockchain technology and knowledge of Cryptocurrency adopted as much as we can.
To tackle this issues we have three main pillars that we would like to develop and work on to be able to accomplish our mission in the long term. Each and everyone of them feeds back from each other and we expect to keep nurturing them into just that
Community Build : First and most important pillar from the community. We aim to gather a rich and tight community in which everyone can collaborate in any way they want, providing it helps the community grow.
Our first line of supporters which can in any way contribute with their own skills. From creating memes to sharing useful information or posts about the NEAR ecosystem or Blockchain education and even developing code if they are up to!
Academic Development: The second pillar which would feedback the first and third one. With this one we are aiming to get into institutions, academies and universities.
Some of the later projects along the way include an introduction to Blockchain and the NEAR ecosystem guided with qualified professors here in Argentina.
Starting from the basics such as what is a Blockchain, we are looking forward to gathering more people that would like a proper introduction and education on the subject, getting them to participate and get into our Guild.
Call to Developers : Third pillar and our final contribution to give back to the NEAR ecosystem. We expect in the long run to be able to educate the most people we can along the way. After they attend different courses and learn what NEAR has to offer, we would love that they get involved in different projects regarding development.
Getting programmers, engineers and new students to develop a project and close the loop to bring even more people that want to study and get involved would be our final objective in this journey, and considering the potential of Argentinian developers, this is surely possible to accomplish.
Our early Team and Supporters
This section is to assign tasks to do for the team that we currently have in hand, a brief explanation of their early roles in the community and contributions to the guild.
I, @nacho.near Will be the main Guild Lead and will handle Telegram as well. Will also be in charge to create a suitable course and developing the second pillar to get adoption of Blockchain in different academic institutions in Argentina.
@leamanza will be in charge of the development of the third pillar in the early stages. He is a NCD Dev L1 and L2 and surely will prove to be a very important asset contributing to the success of the third initiative, we will seek to find him (or if he provides) a suitable team to start developing projects for the NEAR ecosystem.
We wanted to introduce our social networks in case anyone wants to come by or support our guild! We have a lot of work to do and we appreciate any help or recommendations.
Or if you just wanted to come by and say Hi, you are welcome as well!
This would conclude for now what we have to offer to this unique ecosystem, one that at I’m really proud to be in and to represent from Argentina.
This would even be possible if I didn’t had the guidance of @FritzWorm , thanks a lot for helping me along the way creating all of this. We send you hugs from Argentina and are very excited to start building a lot alongside you!
Also I wanted to thank some other great people that I didn’t had the pleasure to spend more time or exchange more ideas but surely helped me when I just started here and I’m glad that we have a lot of warm people to help us anytime building here. Thanks for all the help @David_NEAR @Dacha @simeon4real @Alecaseg @Butneversaved
Lets build great things all together!
