Now that we are very close to buying a very real parcel of land, I think it’s time we have something to wear to both spread the word about CityDAO and feel pride in the community we’ve built.
I propose we hold a merch design contest, with the winning design being produced and sold at a moderate markup. 20% of profits go to the winning designer as compensation, and the rest will act as additional funding to CityDAO. The amount we invest into this depends on level of interest in the idea (as a signal for sales potential) but I think spending $500-750 (depending on what manufacturing cost ends up being) on a first order would be a good target to easily sell out but allow for enough members of the community to purchase.
This is only a phase 1 proposal, so please express both positive and negative feedback below so we can make this happen if the community has interest.
