Now regarding LATAM, I have some doubts, as from the Educational team, we once discussed having an alliance where there were members from Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina, but we didn’t know about an Aurora LATAM proposal.
I mean, there are on-chain communities in the ecosystem like Mexico and Venezuela who could have been invited or at least acknowledged there will be a LATAM as a whole proposal.
I am all in to support you as a leader of it; just giving you feedback on that this should not be a surprise for other Guild leaders but something discussed to carry on together in cross-collaboration. Basically, I am not the only one who should be supporting you but also other communities from LATAM.
Here I can see you mentioned Venezuela for example, and even when we know each other already, we have been helping each other, I onboarded you and help you to build your Argentina guild… even tho… from Venezuela we don’t know about an Aurora LATAM proposal.
I know you are here with the best intentions, so I wish I can express myself as clear as possible:
A proposal for LATAM is something that should be worked out together, and not alone by the community of just one country.
We are building decentralized communities, there are already active ones in LATAM, and communication with those is key to making a LATAM project successful.
Hello Dear Fritz! How is everything going?
Nice to see you around here! Glad that we can be working together
Of course they are all acknowledged since I mentioned in the post that there will be included the entirely of LATAM. Since the only ones that I saw creating a post were Brazil I mentioned them and included everyone else as well.
My idea is to unite every guild and help them develop and grow in Aurora! Be there for them every step of the way.
Of course we will Fritz, this is why I mentioned everyone, and when everyone starts stating that their guild, telegram, twitter and other socials are up and running we will be there to support them and engage with them in organizing everything they need support.
Such as educational projects, launching dapps to mainnet, creating different groups and every activity they need help, we will be there. That is the main idea.
Do not confuse it that its just one community or just one country, its the coordination of every community and we will work out everything together
So with that said
Thank you very much for your post and for your support! We will make sure to work together with every community in LATAM if there is anything you want to know or need just let us know. Myself and @Turco . Have a very nice day.
This is wrong and might confuse @ell and others around here that there is an already understanding and that you count with the support from other communities from LATAM.
I am the founder of NEAR Venezuela, I am part of Near Hispano, and I had invite you and leaders from Mexico, Peru, Chile to other cross collaborations with projects but non of us knows about your plan to build an Aurora LATAM.
Which is great initiative! Of course!
But when we built the proposal for LATAM hub on Near we did that together, as no one should be able to call him self or lead alone a LATAM initiative, this is something to build up together.
We exist, we are all around, making this proposal without backup from any other country on LATAM is a clear mistake.
Again, I do believe this is a great initiative and I want it to be successful, that’s why I already said I will support you, but for sure you need to communicate with the other leaders from LATAM.
I hope you can communicate this as soon as possible to invite the leaders from on-chain communities on LATAM to be really part of the Aurora LATAM.
Hi, @FritzWorm@nacho.near@Turco Greetings from NEAR Mexico!
As Fritz says. We can also join from Mexico for this.
For example, we also work very hard in Mexico with people from Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and some LATAM countries.
If you are interested, we can add to detonate the entire ecosystem under the same project, thus making it scale as necessary. If you like, we get in touch to see how the organization could be.
Hello Jose! Of course!
Lets everyone gather to make the most of Near Latam! Love this guys!
I just made the example from @rossoni with his post of Aurora Brazil since I just saw him creating a community within Brazil.
I wanted to get in contact with you guys afterwards this proposal was approved since there is some heavy duty coordination to make and I wanted to know if the proposal was to be approved first.
Obviously you are the first ones to be contacted as well since you both are pillars in latam within Near.
Lets exchange some ideas and see how we develop the entire area.
Love to have you both onboard. We would have Venezuela, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay with its representatives for the time being. I hope to hear from everyone within latam
Also I invite you to brainstorm with ideas for us to develop or start creating proposals of your own for your region and what would you like to develop (socials, projects, dapps, etc). Let me know what I can help you with!
Cheers and good day (or good night hehe)
Hello @ell, even when this is already approved I have a big concern.
There is no clear budget for the use of the funding
One country (Argentina) can’t represent LATAM
To be able to call an initiative LATAM, you need support from the Region, and the support will come in the form of several representatives, not just one country. Building community on Aurora can be easily achieved as there are already big web3 communities, like Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina.
This leadership from @nacho.near is not looking to build decentralization
Nacho and @Turco didn’t take well my request to be open and to build a structure to receive more representatives, create a DAO with those representatives, and organize us as a team to build a LATAM community.
It seems they just want to distribute $6000 between them and to lead Aurora LATAM on their own. Not building decentralization. I believe this because all my interactions from the forum had been taken by them as “disrespect” and they made that up as an excuse to take me out from the LATAM leadership discussions.
Building consensus is a place where not everyone should agree with each other, but where everyone involved should be part and have a voice.
Making different communities from different countries to be together and aligned into the same goals is not an easy task, and it is not something you are doing here, so from the time being, there is no really Aurora LATAM, but a kidnapped name “LATAM Aurora” that is not representing what is mean to be.
Nacho, that’s a document made by Martin Montero, without any backup but what is worst is that it is from a person who also attacked @claudioac (Near Hispano Founder) and Near Foundation with lies and false statements.
In the council meeting with representatives from Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Venezuela, Argentina, it was a long talk about Martin Montero problems, no one supported his claims and his false statements that even hurt the LATAM HUB creation.
But now you are supporting Martin Montero claims, as you showed it here the ones against me.
You are mixing now too much, showing your true colors.
The problem was Martin Montero, attacking the Near Hispano leadership and LATAM Hub. There was not any problem with me but just being a direct target from Martin as I was one of the first to oppose his actions.
The documents or problems about you are here on this very same thread.
Lack of transparency
Lack of Regional support. Plus, Not taking the advice to look for regional support
Personal attacks sharing documents with false statements (already discussed the problems about Martin Montero against LATAM and you were there and didn’t support but now you do)
There is no We in Aurora LATAM, just you and Turco, and that’s the whole problem.
You don’t represent LATAM, you have 0 support as there was not even a leadership group with any member from another country besides Argentina until I requested it, and now you show lack of professionalism with personal attacks trying to silence me.
My name Julian. In the NEAR forum I am known as @jblm. I am an active member of NEAR & Aurora Venezuela and moderator of the Telegram groups.
Let’s read this:
Those sentences are completely true. It is said that this proposal was for the purpose of creating an Aurora LATAM Community, but the lack of activity metrics on Telegram or Twitter for other communities in NEAR by country (Venezuela, Mexico, etc), shows that you did not take the bother to consult with them beforehand, and include them in the Proposal of project. That would have been great to see. Why didn’t you show it?
In the end, it is a proposal (Approved!) to make Aurora LATAM centralized in Argentina, which cannot or does not represent Latin America.
I love the detailed proposals, which tentatively show the use of the funds for each of the items that your put under “How will we get there?”. It is interesting to be able to compare the correspondence between the proposal and the report with respect to the use of funds.
In addition, the Report should not have been a separate post, but here linked to your proposal.
@FritzWorm will not be the only one to rise up to make these observations. I am not active in this forum yet, and only recently, I have been able to understand these things.
