Mambo Vipi Mombasa! Sankore is here once again for the second NEAR meet. In the fall of 2021, we had an exciting NEAR meet with the people of Mombasa. We covered milestones in growing NEAR’s user base in the Coastal city of Kenya. The previous tour mainly covered the basics of crypto, and we further initiated Mombasa peeps into NEAR Protocol, activating 123 NEAR wallets in a record five days. This time around Mombasa, we bring you something even more exciting; The Sankore Bounty Ecosystem.

Sankore Bounty Ecosystem

Sankore is launching the SBE, a self-governed community that engages talents with tasks and rewards them for their skills. This is an ecosystem that allows you as a member to refine your talents in a wide array of fields, by claiming tasks, executing the tasks and ultimately requesting compensation.

During the NEAR meet, Sankore will take you through the process of interaction with the SBE. You will be taught how you can claim tasks on the SBE DAO and work through completion to claim your NEAR tokens. This will be an opportunity for you to refine your talents, whether it is writing, content creation, videography or even graphic design. We have it all, and only need you to show us what you can do.
