My fault, there is already a meeting at 10:00 UTC, it means 15:30 IST, always on Tue, 20th June.
If this works for you, I will add your segment.

Our Dao Presentation for funding:

After watching the presentation I still have one question in my mind (sorry if it was mentioned and I didn’t catch it). In your budget under ‘online presence’ there is a spending for online advertising $200 included and also under ‘partnership with Indian tech communities’ you’re planning to invest $300 in promotional activities. I wonder what specific activities are meant with online advertising and promotional activities and would like to ask you to explain that in detail, please.

I should probably already inform you that we don’t have such tradition of funding any advertising or promotional activities as a rule when it comes to community grants.

Thank you in advance for your response!

Hope you are doing Great

We meant activities related to inviting influencer, Twitter ads or outsourcing work from Marketer.

For this part here promotional activities includes Poster/banner, stickers or any kind of Goodies.

While the second item $300 (posters/banners, stickers etc.) is completely OK, the first one - inviting influencers or marketers, paying for ads is an activity the DAO does not support and has no past experience supporting. I would appreciate if you could focus on promotion activities without paid marketing and exclude that from the budget.

I hope that it this change can be accommodated without causing significant problems :crossed_fingers:t2: :purple_heart:


Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate the clarification regarding the DAO’s limitations regarding inorganic marketing. Moving forward, I understand that it would be prudent to exclude such activities from the budget.

Please let me know if there are any further adjustments or modifications required, as I am committed to ensuring that our marketing strategy aligns with the DAO’s objectives and restrictions.


Great! I’m now in full support for this grant and vote YES :slight_smile:

Thank you!


Congratulations! The majority decision of the Grant Committee has concluded to recommend this proposal to the DAO.

In order to receive official approval from the DAO, a corresponding on-chain vote needs to be conducted on DAOHaus that will determine the DAO decision. A member of the Grant Committee will reach out to you via email with instructions on next steps in order to prepare for the on-chain funding proposal, which requires prior completion of KYC and consent to the Grant Agreement.

Thank you for all your effort to present a strong proposal aiming to grow The Graph and web3 ecosystem!
