The idea of adopting a mascot was brought up yesterday on the G-n-R call and got some enthusiastic responses, so I wanted to bring it to the forum!
Having a mascot does a few things for the community:
It brings a stronger sense of comradery to us by increasing the team-aspect of the DAO.
It brings even more prominence to the brand by having another image to remind people of MakerDAO.
It brings cool new opportunities for swag, perhaps even a full mascot costume (idea?).
It brings a host for animated video series, for Content Production CU.
We had a few suggested mascots already from the chat on G-n-R #141, those are included in this poll. This is also open to more ideas; if we can gain something close to a consensus we can move forward with beginning some designs and bring those back for further voting.
