Bankless Japan will be a media partner of WebX which will be held in Tokyo on July 25 and 26, 2023, and to request funding and other necessary support from the DAO to ensure its success.

This ask worth 200,000 BANK will help us deliver an already secured partnership worth 20,000 USD


Project Description

WebX is Japan’s one of the largest Web3 conferences this year gathering a bunch of top-notch players all over the world. We are honorably a part of media partner with an independent booth for 2 days and get an opportunity to promote both BDAO and BDAO Japan. It’s the first time to have a booth and opportunities as big as this chance, so we want it to be the beachhead for the activities of BDAO in Japan, and the expansion of subscribers and BDAO citizens.

Past/preparatory activities

We’ve already sponsored as a media partner in major Japanese crypto events, like DAOATHON, ETH TOKYO/DAO TOKYO, IVS Crypto in this April. [insert youtube/social media links]




This is a one time ask


Since only a few people are in the Bankless ecosystem in Japan(639 followers on Twitter / 7 contributors, as of July 16th), we can increase the entire Bankless ecosystem of people in Japan including subscribers, contributors, and clients of Bankless Consulting in the wake of this WebX collaboration.

  • A booth will be set up to introduce and explain Bankless to members of the Japanese Web3 community who are not familiar with it and make them involved in the BANKLESS ecosystem via subscription to media
  • Organize the side event with several partners to do more of it independently in accordance with WebX Tokyo itself to expand Bankless Card
  • To get and introduce of Bankless Consulting for Japanese Corp or people who want to launch・grow of DAOs for expanding the DAO consulting market of BDAO

Their ask is more than the max budget for an event, so i recommend them to make a proposal. But we can afford it as global events if there are no objections from anyone to use the Global Events budget for this.

After conversation with the Global Events team, we have decided to fund this partnership proactively with a 200K ask with the deliverables as listed in this proposal along with video content in English and Japanese for our social media.
