Hi fellow owls,
First of all, thanks to everyone who participated in the sentiment check. The outcome was very positive and therefore we’d like to take the next step towards making Index Merch a reality.
We have received some feedback and discussed which items work best to start this off. Essentially, we have narrowed down the selection to hoodies and shirts in a simple black and white look.
Here is the booklet with a selection of 8 items:

To definitely choose which item the community wants to have, please head over to this poll to tell us what your preference is. The poll only contains two questions: What is your first and what is your second preference.
Please bear in mind that we just want to find the first (and potentially the second) item we want to produce. This does not exclude any other swag to be produced in the future (e.g. Socks).
POLL for Budget Request (added 18th May 2021)
Great to see excitement for the merch! The prototype was produced and is shipped to @Kiba for feedback. As soon as we’re good to go, we can start the ordering process. For that to happen, we’d like to request a budget from the treasury.
The budget will only be used to purchase one hoodie for each community contributor as per the reward list from April 2021 (not including bounties).
We estimate that we’ll need ~70 hoodies (45 owls, 10 for Set, 10 for DFP, 1 for Mason, and 4 for CoinShares). For the community sale we use a hoodie price of 100$. Hence, we request 7000$ from the treasury to purchase Index hoodies (~4% of April rewards budget). Unused funds will go back to treasury.
- Yes, let’s use 7000$ to equip the community
- No, we should not use the treasury for this
What if I’m not on the list?
For people not on the contributor list, we’ll have another 50 hoodies for self-purchase in the MF shop, after the internal sale is complete. The price will be ~150$ in the shop.
What if the sentiment is negative?
In case the community does not want to provide the budget, we can put the hoodies on the MF shop for self-purchase.
By the way, with the purchase of merch via MetaFactory, the Coop is eligible to claim $ROBOT tokens, so is the designer. I propose that we leave the split like this, so that both the Coop and @beansontoast will get some $ROBOT tokens.
