My Name is Ulises Marin @ramgor actual Project Manager of the Venezuelan Guild.
In conjunction with our leaders, Fritz Wagner @FritzWorm , Jose Ortuño, Andres Dominguez and Arturo Hernandez, We are pleased to present our Venezuelan Guild to this community.
Venezuelan Guild is already a flourishing community in the Near Protocol ecosystem, and we would also like to integrate ourselves within this platform by creating the AURORA VENEZUELA Guild.
It is well known, that our country has always remained among the first places regarding the use and adoption of cryptocurrencies worldwide, being number 1 in Latin America according to sources such as the UN.
Thanks to this, we have been able to develop a strong and fast-growing organized community, with about 770 Telegram members, 1.2K followers on Twitter, and 300 Discord members. Similarly, we have promoted projects resulting from the initiatives carried out by our members, several of which are already in mainet in production, to mention a few: Free Horses, NEAR P2P, among others.
In our Telegram community, with about 770 engaged members, we have marked rapid growth, as a result of educational plans and promotions, together with marketing plans executed to grow and educate our community quickly and steadily.
We are an organization with a decentralized vision of governance, decision-making, and fund management. For this reason, we have managed to form a successful DAO with 21 members with voting power becoming one of the structures with the largest distribution of power among the guilds in Latin America. The funds that we receive are always managed under the considerations of the whole GUILD, promoting transparency.
Social Media Metrics
We are very proud of our community. All of them, are enthusiasts of blockchain, eager to learn new things, and love to share information, and experience about cryptos, web3, Dapps, and DeFis.
For that reason, we want to show you our milestones so far, on Venezuela Guild Social Media.

What necessities is the proposal solving?
The Venezuelan community is actively searching for information about blockchain, cryptos, web3, DeFi, and Dapps, but most of this information is in English. We seek to solve this problem with the NEAR ecosystem, we translate and show our Venezuelan audience what NEAR Blockchain is and how it works, and we did it all in Spanish.
Equally important for us is to show the Venezuelan community what Aurora is and what they can achieve with the platform, as well as all the dApps running and developing on Aurora Network. We have a great professional team of writers, translators, designers, developers and blockchain experts to do it.
How are these necessities being solved?
We have experience building and working with the community and we have learned from our mistakes and achievements, which has helped us understand how to engage and keep the Venezuelan Guild active.
Our guild holds meetings every Monday with the council members and every Tuesday with the entire community. This is our way of hearing about what members of the Venezuelan Guild want to learn and the best way to approach them.
In addition, to grow our community, we held AMAs with different guests who are developing dApps to introduce them to the community. We love to spread threat information to educate on our Twitter and the telegram channel and coupled with experts we conduct Bootcamps to educate. Furthermore, we love to create designs to spread information in a fun way.
Also, our writers, translators, and designers team are creating and delivering quality content to the community in Spanish.
Expected impact and value for the Aurora community
We have the experience, and we can do it again. Building a Venezuelan Aurora community is the goal, a community that not only understands the Aurora Network, but a community that engages with Aurora, their dapps, and an audience who develops on Aurora.
Above all that, we are a team of professional individuals with knowledge in copywriting, translating, marketing, blockchain, and Near, who has worked promoting and building communities.
Notably, 21 of our Venezuelan council members are certified with one or more of the following Near University certifications: NEAR Certified Analyst, NEAR Certified Professor, Near Certified entrepreneur and NEAR Certified Developer. Equally, a big part of our community members are also certified in one or more of those programs. Conforming another group with more than 50 certified members.
To sum up, we know the Venezuelan community will engage eagerly with the Aurora Network, we are confident that we can do an excellent job showing them all the benefits and making them love and adopt Aurora.
