Project Grant: Nación Bankless AKA Bankless in Spanish
“In quorum we trust”
Hello BanklessDAO it’s very cool for me to keep pushing these initiatives to the growth and evolution of processes that we are actually facing in the web3 space. It’s been six marvelous months of knowledge, milestones and growth. As far as we go, the frontier it’s bigger and bigger, pushing us to divide our hands and try to pull back sometimes to understand and see which one is the best way to continue.
Nación Bankless started in May 2023, as a pop up from International Media Nodes, our home since November 2021. Since our creation, we have started to manage onboarding in real life events, newsletters, campaigns, media coverage and now exploring the space of public goods.
You can learn a little more about us in Spanish here.
Since our inception, we have faced new narratives, the stronger that we are getting, the stronger the competition it’s near us, also the trouble that we face in every nation state, the capture, the governance inequities and the bureaucratic methods to obtain grants and funding of external projects. But with every battle we came tired and frustrated but honored and smarter, wiser and selected the best partners to continue. We started as a BanklessDAO project and we will continue, with the same values, and ethos that our constitution does.

Project Purpose & Mission/Value Alignment
How do we help BanklessDAO?
Since the beginning of our journey in international media nodes, we started translating the content that BanklessDAO and the subprojects of BanklessHQ were doing and little by little we have been understanding the importance of being and staying Bankless, why we should control our decisions, content, finances and rights, since it strengthens us and makes us more and more human, so it is clear to us that the mission of Nacion Bankless to empower people and to give them what belongs to them and that slowly has been distributed among the puppeteers who have been empowered by our data and our belongings.
How do we relate to values?
One of the intangible assets of the decentralized movement is education, that which is not valued as it really should be, for many people it has ceased to be important and even irrelevant, but for us it is one of the most important pillars, since uninformed mass adoption is capable of ending such an ungovernable vacuum as we have had so far. A population capable of understanding the importance of private property and real ownership is essential. We achieve this with the information we deliver in creative newsletters, news focused on Latin America and face-to-face events.
We live in an uncontrolled world, where it is easier to make money than to distribute it among the community that has supported you from the beginning, that is why we have decided to have everything oin chain, always with multisigs and also showing the world each of our proposals and in the forums that have supported us how we have used the funds and the destinations of each one of them. The constant threat of centralization and the traps of Moloch, will only be defeated if our community is prepared to impact enough on the value of integrity driven by us. Each of the funds received, whether many or few, will always be shared in the public forums.
In Nacion Bankless we are still few, in the Bull Market we were 50 people and just these days we are 10 people between occupations, but each of the decisions we make has a direction and a destination; we have participation in governance on Push, Gitcoin, NounsAmigos DAO and soon we want to start having more presence in other places, this in order to understand more about voting and the processes necessary for decision making. We are still proud to use soft voting and as of today, still off chain but in the near future we will be moving up to blockchain voting as part of experimentation.
Culture has been a complicated topic since it is something that is exciting but inherent to the differences in the world we live in, to cite an example for the optimism round we decided to create a proposal with pre-Hispanic themes in Latin America, talking about art and muralism, for us it is important and it will be great that we go forward, without losing our or origins.

We have also worked with the Global Events team to organize partnerships and side events at events in Latam
ETH México: We were present at the ETH Mexico Hackathon, talking about the origin of BanklessDAO, inviting more people to participate in the Bankless en Español project (Now Bankless Nation) where we also gave away t-shirts, stickers and pins.
At DevCon I had the opportunity to attend as co-founder of Ethereum Mexico and talk about the future of Bankless en Español with David Hoffman, and I was also a moderator at DevCon.
We were organizers and promoters of the Ethereum Mexico, Bankless and Cryptoversity face-to-face event, using Hardware Wallets with Ledger. Ethereum Mexico x Ledger, also we have this notion in the global events page from BanklessDAO with tweets and photos: bDAO en Mérida
We’ve mademadre three events at the moment:

Live event in Mérida, México with Green Pill Mexico

This is the notion page in the Global Events format, with the tweets, photos videos, and live stream Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.
In the previous space that we have are our forum posts that in resume, we have everything posted and where it can be reviewed, also we have this Grant and Sponsor notion page where we can review every process.
At first we saw ourselves as a DAO in a process of separation, however now we are sure that we will form a public good that functions as a universal connection between BanklessDAO and all the projects in Latin America that need a voice and vote. All the time we see new initiatives coming out with the nickname “Spanish”, however we not only embrace the language, but also the culture, the processes, the problems and the adoption, so we have to adapt and evolve so the process of onboarding, will be nuanced and improved so that every day we have more people working and learning via Nacion Bankless
