Aragon Swag Store DAO

Swag store is a place where communities like aragon can create their own swag store. All swag stores are only allowed to sell 100% recycled or second hand products. All products are produced locally to prevent the need of long distance shipping.

Artist can send designs to the different community stores. Each design contains a timeline how the product gets produced. The swag store will be a hub for recycling artists to exchange design ideas and best methods how to recycle materials.

Anyone can create a swag store. Each store is controlled my one or multiple addresses or a dao.

The swag store has its own governance token (swag store token SST). Sst gets distributed based on a bonding curve. Sst holders review applications and make sure that all artists follow the sustainability rules.

I created a project incubator called mylife+. The token is moos a proof of contribution token. Every time someone contributes to the mylife+ projects new moos get minted based on a price curve. All mylife+ projects need to serve the plantet and people. The swag store is a mylife+ project. Sst is bonded to moos.

Users who contribute to the development of the swag store get sst token based on their contribution. A user can choose to either to get paid with the project token or from the funding pool. The funding pool has a 200$ cap. Users who want to buy sst tokens can fund the pool. The more user want to get paid in $ instead of sst the more sst can be bought. If all contributors accept sst then the pool never gets diluted.

I want to build the store with flutter and use aragon to govern the project. All contributions will be visible on github. For the start i will use google spreadsheet to monitor the proof of contribution token minting and distribution

I love unique art. So my suggestion is to empower artist all over the world to create the design the community voted for locally from second hand products or repaired products. artist apply to the different swag stores. When a product get bought the artist then ship the art locally to the address of the buyer which can get direct contact with the artist. If there is a dispute then the dispute goes to the aragaon court

as a customer if i go to the swag store i can choose the design i like. then i can put in my location and i see all the artist sorted by location next to me which have created a security deposit in crypto (ETH or ANT or any other liquid token) in case of a dispute. I choose a design and an artist and then i will get a price. i pay the price into a smart contract (automatically converted into USDC) and the artist can start creating the product. Once i received the product the money get distributed to the artist and a if set also a % to the community store.

If I am an artist i can choose Designs i can do and feel comfortable with. Then i think how long it takes for me and the price i charge for buying the second hand product + artifying it + shipping cost and put the information in for each design. I then make a security deposit in case of disputes. Now the customers can choose me and see how much i charge. All the additional % for the DAO and designers get calculated and displayed to the customer.

Hi there, Mouyou! Thank you for your suggestion :slight_smile:

I have a question - how would you envision the “product offering” of such DAO store, as well as logistics entailed?

I’m curious to hear your thoughts as we had some discussion within the team regarding producing swags to giveaway on our future events and initiatives - personally, I’m concerned about the amount of waste we can create (think of how many stickers, t-shirts and water bottles we get after attending a conference) as well as the carbon footprint attached to shipping.

We haven’t reached an agreement yet within the team, but I’d love to hear your thoughts (as well as other community members) on this :bulb:

Hey, fam! Really nice initiative. I have some designs ideas for this exclusive merch store.

All these designs are base on t-shirts as the main base, but for sure are completely extrapolate to every type of wear (pants, snap caps, etc…).

Really love the idea of creating a swag store, select a exclusive design - artist and create a smart contract. Let’s continue discussing this idea, we can create a nice landing page with all the merch available and some of the narrative of this project.

For now, I would suggest keeping the governance really simple and just having a small team run the project using Aragon Govern (so anyone holding ANT can schedule proposals and anyone can challenge in Court). My fear is that a separate token would have low liquidity and would require extra development, which is fine for later but maybe not needed to start?

The DAO can then keep a small % of each sale (on top of what the artists/designers get) and add this fee to the treasury to buy ANT. Then distribute that ANT between those who contribute to the project’s core infrastrucutre.

As a DAO agreement, I would reference the Aragon DAO Agreement (coming soon), Community Guidelines (also coming soon), and the Aragon Manifesto, plus a few details about the project and its intention.

Just suggesting ideas, cool project!

I like it also simple and a small team. I think a project-token is really important to incentivise early participants and fund development. I am not afraid of low liquidity cause its not a pump and dump.

I think this would be a future proposal.

I think this will be also in a future proposal.

my rough plan is:

  1. Set up the projectDAO to mint project tokens and distribute them to users who work for the DAO
  2. Create milestones and propose them to the DAO
  3. vote to fund the milestones through minting project-tokens based on a milestone&level-bonding-curve
  4. You do one milestone you will receive the project-tokens locked in this milestone.

Fully supportive of this @Mouyou , an Aragon swag store has been loooong overdue. Are you planing to make a funding proposal to the AN DAO for this?

PS: Not sure about the name ASS token symbol :rofl:

Yes would be great :slight_smile:
I updated the idea (see top)
