After having a successful September, we hope to increase education and adoption of Aurora across various communities and channels in Nigeria. This we plan on doing through/by the following means:

  1. Create educational/marketing contents for the community. The content created will focus on two aspects of Aurora Ecosystem which are the Technical aspects and the non technical aspects.

  2. With our established skilled graphic designers we want to create various infographics and videos to simplify onboarding onto AURORA ECOSYSTEM.

  3. Expanding our various social media handles for AURORA NIGERIA. The whole aim here is to make communities within Nigeria know of a more scalable L2 built on NEAR.

  4. Community Building by holding AMAs and Twitter Spaces with on-chain and off-chain communities for onboarding/education that will organically grow AURORA NIGERIA COMMUNITY.

  5. Familiarization of Aurora Ecosystem in Local Nigeria Communities through translation of various Articles related to the Aurora ECOSYSTEM into the 3 major languages in Nigeria.

  6. Begin a Solidity Developer bi-weekly class for training of newbie solidity devs who are interested in building on AURORA.

  7. Attend/hold in-person meet ups for education/onboarding.


  1. From the content team we shall create THREE written contents containing technical and non technical aspects of AURORA, posted on NEAR/AURORA NIGERIA MEDIUM PAGE and shared on at least 5 different Nigeria communities and one article will be published on DiutoCoinNews, the second biggest crypto blog in Nigeria and Africa.

  2. Create THREE Graphics per week in relation to Aurora Ecosystem and projects built on Aurora plus ONE video per week in relation to the weekly summary video of Fridays Aurora Community.

  3. In relation to social media building given our already established presence in Nigeria we would push it a bit futher by growing our various social media handles for AURORA NIGERIA. We shall have a 40-50% increase of followers and or members accross all social media handles. Having them fully engaged in on-chain activities.

  4. We will organise weekly AMA/TWITTER SPACES section in AURORA NIGERIA and other Nigeria communities. Also, we will hold on every Mondays, Project of the week community discussions, Wednesdays Trivia night contest and Fridays Aurora weekly summary discussion this is to keep the community active and educated about Aurora Ecosystem.

  5. We will create SIX translations of articles per month, 2 yoruba, 2 hausa and 2 Igbo. This will enable easy familiarization of Aurora Ecosystem in Local communicaties in Nigeria.

  6. In training of newbie solidity devs we shall hold two online developer classes monthly, and one developer article. This is to help train Nigeria Solidity developers that will be able to build projects on Aurora that can solve Nigeria problems. Also, be able to prepare developers for on-chain activities for ecosystem growth.

  7. We propose to attend ONE official event this OCTOBER to create the offline presence, onboard and have other marketing activities. We would be sending in 2 reps from the team for the event. Abdukarim and Qeenya will be representing AURORA NIGERIA in the forthcoming Nigerian Fintech week, an opportunity to draw startups towards the EVM AURORA.
