MoonNoobs Brings Liquidity Platform to Top NEAR Projects

NEAR Foundation is pleased to announce a $50,000 grant to MoonNoobs, a DAO that will be among the first projects fundraising to provide liquidity to other top NEAR projects. MoonNoobs will make it incredibly easy for consumers to gain exposure across multiple projects in the rapidly expanding NEAR ecosystem. The grant will be used to market and grow the MoonNoobs community, as well as accelerate development of its Phase 1 infrastructure.

Through the MoonNoobs DAO, new projects can receive support in the form of early venture capital (VC) investment, strategic planning, and brand awareness. In the process, $MOON token holders can benefit by staking $MOON, which will represent a diversified portfolio of new and upcoming projects that may be flying under the typical investor’s blockchain radar. Additionally, $MOON stakers will receive rewards in the form of airdrops, giveaways, and contests.

Founded by a seasoned group of five experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds, the MoonNoobs team includes a NASA research engineer, two senior NFL analytics platform developers, a Johns Hopkins’ academic radiologist, and a branding and style expert. MoonNoobs has also secured an advisory team of top crypto experts and strategists.

“This team has demonstrated a track record of proven success throughout their careers that can be directly applied to the NEAR ecosystem,” says Mark Sugden, Growth at NEAR Foundation. “Their roadmap is unique and impressive and directed at identifying and supporting the best projects on the chain.”

The MoonNoobs team has been analyzing the landscape of various cross-chain treasury launches to ensure maximum success of token launch and returns to early participants. To ensure protocol success, the team is also leveraging its unique advisory partnership with Chaos Labs to model thousands of launch and runtime scenarios.

MoonNoobs will launch with token bonding and staking on the native MoonNoobs platform, but plans to quickly integrate community-vetted, top NEAR projects into its treasury. MoonNoobs’ mandate for assets within its treasury will maintain a strict “no sell” commitment, making it an attractive place for early project entrants to get their liquidity.

MoonNoobs’ longer term roadmap is equally, if not, more exciting:

  • Migration directly onto the NEAR Mainnet blockchain
  • Franchising and advisory services to new projects
  • MoonNoobs marketplace

Visit the MoonNoobs website for a full roadmap and whitepaper. More details on the MoonNoobs community and the launch itself will be posted on the MoonNoobs Discord/Medium/Twitter throughout January. Stay tuned and follow along to be a part of their journey.

“One small step for man, one giant leap for MOONkind!”
