Hey, where can i complete it?

Second to last section

Above acceptance of the terms and conditions

Ohh okay, I´ll do it. There are is problem, right?

As a contributor of @seedlatam for the @Joxes delegation, I have analyzed this mission following the criteria mentioned in this post.

Summarizing in concise lines the main points of this proposal:

  • The proposal doesn’t respect the format: “Breakdown of the Mission’s budget request”. Is not indicated.
  • Regarding the request: 15k OP - no reference is made to the request, reason, uses, distribution.
  • It’s not framed in the times, this must be completed at the end of the season (09/20); the roadmap has the last milestone with projection in January 2024
  • Although a web3 club seems to be something that enhances a region, as well as being highly synergistic for its community; the goal of the project is not clear enough.
