Members of the DAO have direct ownership of all DAO activities
Immediately go from a one-person team to a community guild. By utilizing the VINTAGE DAO, you become a partial owner of a growing community.
Everyone in the DAO has a passion for vintage clothing and increasing community awareness about vintage.
By joining the VINTAGE DAO, you will get support and access to a large community of members from across the Globe.
Our exclusive group chats in Discord have different threads including:
In Search Of's (ISO's)
Black Lists of buyers/sellers who have a bad history
Self Governed Means
As a member of the DAO, you are equal with one another, and should hold each other accountable. If the community excels at governance, everyone participates in the upside. You should be active enough to vote on certain decisions the DAO makes.
Additionally, as a DAO owner, there will be opportunities for the DAO to pay 'dividends' to all members upon successful events and programs.
Where Internet and Community Meet
Utilize the DAO treasury and resources to host events that would've not normally been possible for you on your own. Community members share a common mindset for the goals and objectives they are trying to reach, and by combining forces via the DAO, those goals become more achievable.
Take a look through the roadmap below to learn about the DAO's collective goals.
Stay Connected Anywhere Globally
Members across the world can access the DAO from anywhere as long as they have a smartphone (or computer) and access to the internet.
Anyone can create a crypto account and deposit ethereum to purchase $VTG once the token goes live.
Please reach out via our official social media accounts if you have any trouble joining!
Vintage DAO Is Growing Daily
We welcome everyone no matter your background. The DAO is a safe-space where any forms of hate speech aren't tolerated.
Upon launch, the Discord will be open to the public until the token goes live. At that time, there will be a minimum $VTG required to continue being a member, however all people who joined the Discord and were active prior to that will earn a future membership for free.
Where Vintage Clothing Meets Metaverse
Public Launch: February 3rd, 2022
Whitelist Pre-Sale: January 27th, 2022
The first of its kind NFT series meant to represent the Vintage Clothing community. Vintage Punks are a collection of 300 unique NFTs, based on 15 different shirts, 4 background options, and 5 skin tones. Owning a Vintage Punk will have an exclusive benefit when the DAO goes live.
2022 - Q1
DISCORD BETA LAUNCH
The Discord channel will eventually be gated to only VINTAGE DAO members, but before the $VTG token goes live, it will be open to the general public. Activity in the Discord during the beta phase will yield rewards (based on how active you are) in the form of $VTG token when the token goes live.
VINTAGE PUNKS NFT LAUNCHES
As a Web3 community, members will be looking for an NFT profile picture that represents something they resonate with. 50% of the initial mint revenue will be used to fund the treasury for the DAO. Each Vintage Punk holder will get an exclusive Vintage Punk t-shirt as well!
DISCOUNTS FOR DAO MEMBERS
Vintage DAO will establish partnerships with local businesses to provide DAO members with exclusive discounts and early access to drops! The DAO will collectively decide what companies we want to partner with to ensure it benefits the most DAO members!
2022 - Q2
T-SHIRT SENT TO DAO MEMBERS
All members of the DAO will have the chance to sign up to get a one-time only t-shirt for the original DAO members. This t-shirt will be free of charge for all DAO members, regardless where in the world they are located. DAO members will have input on the design as well.
LAUNCH WEEKLY LIVE AUCTIONS
As a benefit of being a member of the DAO, you can sign up weekly for a slot in the live auction schedule hosted from the VINTAGE DAO Instagram account. These slots are free of charge, but we ask that you give 5% of your sales to the DAO member hosting the live if it's successful.
DAO TOKEN $VTG LAUNCHES
The DAO token represents your ownership in the VINTAGE DAO community. The minimum requirement of VINTAGE DAO tokens required to enter the Discord channels other than General Chat is 25,000 $VTG. Tokens also represent voting rights.
2022 - Q3/Q4
Vintage DAO will start a podcast to talk about the current state of vintage/art, what the future holds, and feature guest speakers from key parts of the communities. The purpose of this Podcast will be to spread general awareness of vintage clothing.
PURCHASE VINTAGE FOR DAO
The DAO will vote on different pieces they want to acquire for the future retail store. DAO members will have the chance to propose pieces for sale from their personal collections to the community. These pieces will be displayed at all events, and can be sold for profit to the DAO.
HOST AN IN-PERSON EVENT
VINTAGE DAO will host a for-profit event where DAO members will be able to have booths at the event. The size of the booth will be relative to how many DAO tokens you hold. The event will be paid for by the DAO treasury, and tickets will be sold to G/A to attend.
2023 & BEYOND
LAUNCH VINTAGE DAO MERCH
As VINTAGE DAO grows into a brand, we will subsequently need our own merch. DAO members will vote on the designs and pricing for the merch, and it will be available to the general public to purchase. Proceeds will go towards further funding other VINTAGE DAO activities.
OPEN RETAIL LOCATION
All of the pieces that have been collected throughout the year will be released to the general public via a physical retail store! All positions at the store will be filled by DAO members only*, and will pay a full salary. Location TBD, will be decided by the DAO based on logistics.
On top of continuing to grow the DAO, host events, and expand retail locations, what else? Throw a huge party? Start a music label? At this point, the DAO will be capable of whatever it wants to achieve, and the direction it heads in will be wholly decided by the community.
THE CURRENCY OF COLLECTORS
Launch: Summer 2022
The minimum number of tokens you will need to hold in your wallet is 10,000 $VTG tokens in order to have access to the DAO. We feel that by having this requirement, community members will care more about the objectives of the DAO because they are financially invested and aligned. The more $VTG tokens you have, the more voting rights you have, and therefore the more input you have in the direction the DAO goes as well as the decisions it makes. Additionally, holders will naturally participate in any appreciation of the token price as the value of the community grows.
