Hi fellow goats, I had an idea recently about the issue that Voat has with funding or rather, how difficult it is for the average user to donate to Voat
I was wondering how open others would be to a goat who is more entrepreneurial minded than usual and his idea of starting a line of Voat merchandise. Things like stickers and shirts and hats, maybe some plush goats or sweatshirts, items just generally Voat or Voat goat themed.
Only catch is that instead of purchasing these items directly, you get them as rewards for different donation levels and/or duration of donation (points based)
Say you want to make a $5 monthly donation to Voat and the stickers cost me $1 to make and ship (estimating for easy math)
So you make a monthly $5.20 donation to my "storefront" (hear me out) and on the 5th month you are sent a sticker
How it works in my end is that in since form or other the money destined for Voat makes it's way into bitcoin and is transferred to Voat at a specified date each month, and ALL income and expenses related to this will be transparent for the users, I'm not looking to steal your money, I'm looking to help my community stay alive
Any input is appreciated as this idea is still a raw bun in the oven
