How Can I Start a Guild?

Step one:

Ensure that you have browsed through our directory of guilds to check if you can contribute to an already existing guild https://near.org/guilds/.

If you have general questions about Guilds or you want to know what a Guild Leader is, what to expect as a representative of your Community?! reach out to us here: https://nearverse.typeform.com/to/vs6blz9z.

Step two:

Once you’ve filled out the form, the Guilds Team will schedule a 1 on 1 call with you. We will be there to answer any further questions you might have about the ecosystem and provide all the available resources. We will also support you to refine your proposal/roadmap on the Governance Forum before moving onto the next stage.

After receiving an overview about your prospective guild plans and needs, the guilds team will be able to guide you in a more specific way depending on your general guild theme (geographical/ creative/ marketing focused guild etc). It’s always a good idea to get connected with guilds/contributors with a similar passion. You can make a post in the forum to get feedback from the community and find interested candidates to potentially help your cause.
