  • Delays in funding continue to affect project timelines. To ameliorate the situation, proposals could begin to specify longer periods within which work is to take place.
  • From September onward, proposals will be capped at a maximum of $500 USD in DAI and projects that require more funding are encouraged to spread their project across two months with two separate proposals or look for further funding from other DAOs.
  • Social media strategies are beginning to draw more members. Near Writer’s Guild on Twitter has reached 155 followers, and on Twitter we have reached 180 followers.
  • Live events are in the works this month, one scheduled for each Friday in September. News of these events have already sparked greater discussion within the community and helped us achieve a stronger sense of group culture.

Accounting (Still to be paid out):

Total: $1, 435 USD in DAI

Next Steps:

  • Guides on how to mint e-books on our Mintbase store. These guides will appear on our medium website.
  • Collaboration with the Near Book Club.

Thank you,

You have also collaborated with NEAR Alexandria Library, through the wearable books project. We are putting the books inside the library.


Thanks for the reminder @thephilosopher
