Free TON Indian Subcontinent Sub-Governance - A Proposal

Free ton is an open network, so banning is impossible though people of pakistan are also innocent. Anyone can work collaboratively with pakistan citizens. No objection.

open networks are freedom from local governments dictatorship and are borderless.

Indian government will never allow indian citizens to make a crypto community with people of Pakistan because of their several terrorism attack in India.

Active, where?

It’s been almost two and a half months since they got the fund from the main governance for their Phase-1A implementation but since then community doesn’t receive any update from this passive governance.

Summary:

The engine of this subgovernance is assembled poorely that hasn’t started yet.

Yes, it is noticeable that nothing is happening. I would like to get feedback from the members of the Indian SG.
Guys, what are your plans? Any progress ?

Hi! Do you have telegram chat or channel for communications in subgovernance?

They are doing nothing even after the 81 day of the fund credited.

Main Governance should start distribution of low budget partnership directly with community users (10,000 TON not 100,000 TON).

Hi All,

Apologies for the delayed replies. That’s on me - been heads down, working.

However, here are some things that we have completed, are working on - and most importantly, as a decentralized entity - paving the ground for control by the community.

Here’s the website we’ve built -

  1. https://www.freetonindia.org/

It includes the following pages/site-structure:

  1. Homepage designed, developed, and deployed - link
  2. Get FreeTON wallet page designed, developed, and deployed - link
  3. Get TON crystals page designed, developed, and deployed - link
  4. dApps and deBots page designed, developed and deployed - link
  5. Staking and Farming page designed, developed, and deployed - link

  8. What is Defi page designed, developed and deployed - link
  9. Free TON community guidelines page designed, developed and deployed - link

  2. Documentation - link
  3. Tutorials - link
  4. Submit a dApp - link
  5. Contests (Local) - link
  6. Contests (Global) - link

  8. Work for us - link
  9. Regional Communities with l10n - link and link
  10. Grants - link
  11. Content Management System for guest blogging
  12. Analytics integration

(All the graphics are attuned to Indian colors and are illustrated from the ground up. Hope you like it.)

The content on the website is over 7k+ words and is still a work in progress. In case you feel that you can write similarly/better/are well-versed with the Free TON ecosystem, drop me a DM here, and hopefully, you can be one of the first community members to carry the torch for us.

On this front, we have a couple of folks building the website but if you’ve got dev experience/have suggestions - feel free to reach out to me on telegram (@stormbreaker_Thor). We’ll make it worth your while - and also, fun!

  1. Our social platforms are also ready:

a. Twitter - https://twitter.com/freeton_india
b. Facebook - Redirecting...
c. Instagram - Login • Instagram
d. LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/freeton-india

We’ll next be seen on the following platforms:

  • YouTube
  • Reddit
  • Pinterest
  • Blockster (Verified Profile)
  • Telegram
  • Koo
  • Snapchat
  • Quora

So, if you’re interested in shouldering the responsibility of SMM (or simply want to learn the ropes), do drop us a DM. We’re looking to decentralize SM platforms first and if interested, reach out to Vlada or Kira.

  1. The BIG one - Contests - with up to 30,000 TON crystals in prizes

In alignment with our efforts to decentralize all activities at the earliest, we need ambassadors/specialists/advocates for the Free TON India community. Towards this end, to incentivize learning about Free TON and more importantly participate in our growth, we’re suggesting a series of contests for the following:

I. Blogging and Content Creation - Create 1500+ word content pieces on the applicability of Free TON Blockchain and the Free TON dApps in the real-world scenarios, activities, and events. Desirous participants can submit their submissions via this form and stand to win the following rewards every month:

  1. First Prize (Outstanding Content) - 1000 TON
  2. Second Prize - 750 TON
  3. Consolation Prize - 500 TON
  4. Most Viral Content (Month) - 500 TON

II. Graphics/Videos and Memes/GIF Creation - Create mascots, banners, and illustrations for our blogs and social media posts. These shall be rewarded on an acceptability basis as per the following below and desirous participants can submit their submissions via this form and stand to win:

  1. Per accepted graphic - 50 TON
  2. Per accepted illustration - 100 TON
  3. Per accepted Video - 200 TON

III. Student Ambassadors - Only college students are eligible to participate. Each application shall be reviewed by the main team individually and the number of ambassadors selected shall be derived on the basis of region, population density, and skill set required. The skeletal criteria are as follows:

  1. North India - 3
  2. South India - 5
  3. Central India - 2
  4. East India - 5
  5. West India - 2
  6. Outside India - 5
  7. Stewards - 3

IV. Partnership Advocates - These shall be Free TON advocates that present and help conclude partnerships with companies/organizations/trusts/NGOs based in the Indian Subcontinent. These shall be paid 1500 TON for every successful partnership concluded successfully due to their efforts

  1. Partnerships and Use-cases - A partnership with Chatex was grandfathered into the proposal due to the wonderful acceptance of Vlada and Kira into Indian SubG. We’re also in discussions with small-scale local clothes/merch-makers to make merch that can be purchased via TON crystals. More updates on this to follow. We’re also speaking to a few online gaming portals to enable people to earn/win TON in the skill-based mobile gaming Indian ecosystem

  2. Misses/Losses - We (mostly, I), have been a bit hesitant on becoming more active in the Indian telegram community due to the dilemma of whether to make a new one or continue building on the one that already exists. This doubt has been cleared by the advice of the wonderful trio of Roman, Ben, and the swanky AF, Ron. We’ll be more active on the Telegram channel from now on - to answer your questions, take your feedback, and work together constructively.

Happy to take any questions/suggestions/constructive feedback from the community now!

Thanks!
Finally, here is the answer to all criticisms :))

Delayed but nice one. Thanks.
You were absent over a month to respond users queries so it’s obvious that public would have questions about a non-performing prepaided subgovernance!
We hope that now all the funds will be distributed honestly to grow indian community here in the free ton ecosystem.
I’ll be ready to contribute if this subgovernance is really powered by community to empower community in a more distributed and decentralised approach.

can I create and manage a facebook page?

Thank you for your interest, @SOPU.

We already have a Facebook page - Redirecting...

If you’ve already got experience in building and managing communities, send me a DM and we can start working together on this.

If you don’t have prior experience, no worries, if you have that enthusiasm, we’ll get you up to speed.

It’s time for action and now everyone wants an active subgovernance of India.

We should also launch a contest in indian subgovernance to present ourselves in the AIBC Summit in Malta on 15-19 Nov 21 in the same manner as Analytics and Support Subgovernance and other ones are preparing for the special event.

In the original proposal for the Indian SubGovernance, we had forgotten to add in the wallet address that would receive the tokens on withdrawal for disbursals in consonance with the mandates.

The wallet address should be:

0:727230f5d6ff2ac26b86ce0dfe6e61f18136c950cb84817a97ccfbb30f98f15c

There should be a update by initiating a contest thread for the community.

We are too slow and haven’t achieved a two month KPIs timeline.

I am all set to join Free TON India and ready to work with my full potential within the community.

Expecting the KPI report from this interesting SubGov. I am curious to know about their outstanding works. India has always been a key player in the IT sector. I hope, more Indian devs will join Free TON off this SubGov.

Welcome Indian Community :pray:
Every member of Indian community isn’t just a member but also a decision maker for the community growth.

Let’s decide where in India we should organize a seminar to educate the Indian community about Free TON Blockchain.

Everyone is welcome to cast their valuable vote for an important decision for the network growth.
