To know InaDAOs actions and objective higher, I interviewed Tabea. She just isn’t solely one of many founders of the InaDAO — however an extraordinaire group builder within the NEAR ecosystem.
She began working throughout the ecosystem in early 2021, as a group supervisor for the Arroz Criativo DAO in Lisbon. Since then, she bought concerned in a number of totally different DAOs:
Tabea co-founded the mutiDAO along with Smoked Falmon (a Portuguese musician). By way of her involvement within the mutiDAO she entered the inventive ecosystem in-depth, changing into part of the creatives DAO council, co-founding a number of DAOs to get them began and information them, and dealing on DAO to DAO collaborations.
Numerous DAOs in her trajectory however as we speak we’re right here to speak in regards to the Ina DAO. What’s it?
“INA DAO is a DAO based by womxn for womxn. It’s meant to be a spot the place womxn can find out about web3, change, develop and be inventive collectively. The DAO particularly helps individuals who determine as womxn, their inventive objectives, and tasks, no matter background, pores and skin shade, or location. We share data and sources, presently present funding by the Creatives DAO/ NEAR, and encourage to collaborate. Our first venture ‘My Gaia/ Mother’ launched yesterday [08.03.2022] on the worldwide girls’s day in Cryptovoxels and NEARhub. We invited artists to submit artwork items which resemble their relationship to their moms. It’s a very private method and we obtained a number of stunning artwork items. The three winners of the competition will likely be introduced very quickly.”
As for the title — “Ina” means feminine in Esperanto. As said within the description of their Store:
“Conventional artwork historical past has systematically excluded or masked girls’s participation within the arts. Whereas this participation has been growing for the reason that mid-Twentieth century, there’s nonetheless a great distance left to achieve gender equality within the creative scene. On the similar time, there’s a nice alternative for feminine participation within the crypto world. This can be due, partly, to deficiencies in monetary training associated to gender stereotypes. At INA DAO, we intend to advertise feminine presence in each worlds, understanding that these will be linked in an empowering means. We select to help not solely females, however feminine-focused tasks that assist elevate visibility about this particular expertise.”
The concept to create a DAO to help the arrival of extra womxn and non-cis-male individuals into the web3 area got here alongside the next means:
“After being within the ecosystem for 1 12 months now I [Tabea] realised that web3 has two sides. One the place you will be nameless, gender doesn’t matter if you do not need to disclose it (which supplies extra equality than within the bodily world). The opposite, which is a extremely technical facet, remains to be primarily dominated by males. The concept, due to this fact, was to create an area the place womxn can freely ask questions and be taught, with out experiencing the standard mansplaining and being degraded merely resulting from our gender. And likewise to perform as a spot that helps collaborations fairly than competitors. Having met a number of unbelievable robust and knowledgable girls within the area, it simply made sense to create a DAO in order that this data will be handed on and tasks with this focus will be supported.”
In the present day, the InaDAO council consists by 5 womxn:
Tabea, Chloethedev, Gemini Rising, Juliana Mutsumura & Belén — forming a council that features trans girls, girls of all totally different ages, and girls of shade. You actually can really feel secure right here.
Tabea co-founded this DAO with the intention of being an preliminary driving drive, guiding the council members in all issues DAO-related till they don’t want the steering anymore.

“The shop has been deployed about 1 month in the past for our first venture My Gaia/Mother. All submissions have been minted in there, utilizing blockchain to keep away from plagiarism and to ensure a transparent possession of the items in addition to utilizing the cut up royalties to help the artists and DAO as soon as an NFT will get purchased. The three winners will likely be introduced quickly however the venture remains to be ongoing and artists who wish to mint their piece for this venture are free to take action.”
