Harmony UAE DAO Formation – Harmonizing the power of a crypto hub!

Regional DAO

Proposal overview


“The future belongs to those who design it. Through the virtual asset law, we aspire to participate in shaping the future of this ever-evolving sector." – His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Minister of Defence of UAE, as well as the Ruler of the Emirate of Dubai

With a vision to make Dubai the number one crypto hub and destination in the world, UAE has recently announced ‘The Dubai Virtual Asset Regulation Law’. This law is aimed at presenting an advanced legal framework to protect investors and promote responsible business growth within a virtual asset (VA) Industry governance that implements the highest international standards.

Keeping this in mind it would be safe to say that the adoption of cryptocurrency in the UAE will take place at an astounding rate. Hence, it is absolutely important that we take advantage of the governance environment that is conducive to the growth of the crypto community in the UAE and we are able to present Harmony UAE DAO as a major force that can help UAE’s crypto community in the early adoption of Harmony Protocol and its ecosystem.

With this, we take pleasure in announcing the formation of a Harmony UAE DAO!


The primary vision of Harmony UAE DAO is to introduce Harmony ecosystem to the crypto community in UAE with a specific focus on making new users aware regarding the salient features of the ecosystem.

Considering the fact that UAE is destined to become the number one crypto destination in the world, it would serve as a leg up to have an established Harmony community that is focused on spreading awareness regarding not just Harmony Protocol, but what it can bring to the world of Web3, NFT, DeFI and the gem called Play-to-earn.

We would focus on onboarding new users to the ecosystem by taking the following steps:

• Creation of social media accounts like Twitter, Telegram, Instagram as well as establish a YouTube channel

• Post infographic content on the social media handling describing an overview and advancements the Harmony ecosystem is bringing to the crypto world and how it would support building a sustainable and scalable future

• Design Standard Operating Procedures for efficient functioning of Harmony UAE DAO

• Creation of a Facebook page in order to ensure deeper penetration in mainstream social media and optimize the reach of Harmony UAE DAO

• Host virtual as well as in person meet-ups for the Harmony Community at appropriate venues and raise awareness. The meetups would also serve as a platform for onboarding new developers and users to the Harmony ecosystem.

Hello @Younus

Thank you for submitting your proposal for a DAO grant.

I wanted to reach out and let you know that we are reviewing your proposal.

Our review process is fairly straight-forward. All grants come into our pipeline as Uncategorized. Once we have established what sort of grant they are (i.e. Launch Grant, Partnership, DAO, etc) we move them to the In Review stage.

The following stage is Need Info and this is where the community and the Funding Team and/or DAO Operations team asks for further information and makes sure that the proposal is in the proper format. This is usually the stage that takes the longest so, if you are looking to accelerate your grant process, ensuring that your request is in the proper format is the best advice we can give.

Once the proper information is gathered, the proposal moves into the To Approve category where the Funding Team and/or DAO Operations team gathers three "Strong Yes"s for approval.

Once those votes of confidence have been gathered, we announce the approval and request that the grantee fills out the Grant Funding form.

Currently, @Younus , your proposal has been moved from Uncategorized to In Review and @frwrdslosh is assigned to your particular project.

My thanks!

Sam Harrison
