Hello and welcome to the Coop 👋. We’re glad you’re here.Interested in contributing? We’ve laid out the Copper Owl Quest (formerly Bronze Owl Quest) below.
Should you accept and complete the quest, you’ll be positioned to contribute to the growth of one of the most exciting and vibrant communities and projects in the DEFI space.

[ Step 1 ] Complete the New Joiner Form

The new joiner form can be accessed here. This is a short series of questions designed to ensure we point you in the right direction, aligning your skills and interests with the most suitable working group. Once you've submitted the form, we'll automatically add you to the New Joiner call, and you'll be sent an invitation.
  • I've submitted the New Joiner Form

[ Step 2 ] Join us in Discord

Discord is where you’ll connect with different members of the Coop community, and where the different working groups will be coordinating a lot of the work. If you haven’t already, please join the Index Coop Discord channel, verify yourself and read the code of conduct and introduce yourself briefly in the 👋 Introductions channel & find your way to the 👑copper_owl_quest channel. This is where you can ask any questions you have about the quest.
  • I've joined the discord server and introduced myself in the 👋 Introductions channel and found my way to the 👑copper_owl_quest channel.

[ Step 3 ] Watch and read the orientation video and information

If you haven’t already, ensure you watch the orientation video and read through the orientation information so that you have a solid understanding of what the Index Coop is all about. Our goals, our products and our guiding principles.
Information about our products can be found in this Gitbook 👈🏽 under 'PRODUCTS'. Here are some links:
  • I've watched the recording, read through the guiding principles and familiarised myself with the Index COOP products.

[ Step 4 ] Attend your live new joiner orientation call ☎️

Once you’ve watched and read the orientation video and information in [ Step 3 ] , please join us for a live new joiner call.
We run these calls weekly. You should have been automatically added to the event, so check your email and calendar.
If you have not received an invite, you can add yourself to the calendar manually. The process for doing this is explained on the "Meeting Calendar - Join us!" page. Also feel free to drop a message in the 👑copper_owl_quest channel if you're having trouble accessing the meeting.
We also have the same Calendar available in Notion (incase the Gitbook form isn't working):
  • I've attended the live new joiner orientation call

[ Step 5 ] Join three Index Coop calls

Join three calls (not including the New Joiner Orientation call). You can find the calendar with all upcoming calls in the calendar here. Try to join a call specific to the working group you’re interested in, or a group specific to your region or interests.
The idea here is to get a feel for the working group(s) you feel most aligned with.
  • I've attended three Index Coop calls
Please keep track of the calls you attended, you'll need to provide these to complete the quest.

[ Step 6 ] Review and comment on one forum post

The Index Coop forum can be found here. This is a space to discuss more comprehensive proposals, product implementations, roadmaps and announcements. Read through some recent posts (especially if they apply to your desired working group(s) or expertise) and leave a comment on one post.
The Index Coop forum can be found here.
Please keep track of the calls you attended.
  • I've reviewed and commented on one forum post

[ Step 7 ] Sign up to the view from the nest newsletter & follow us on Twitter

The newsletter signup can be found here. We'd also appreciate if you got social with the Index COOP by following us on Twitter.

  • I've signed up to the newsletter and followed the Coop on Twitter* (optional)

[ Step 8 ] Complete the Copper Owl Quest

To complete your Copper Owl Quest, you just need to post in the 👑copper_owl_quest Discord channel channel with the following information:
  • A link to the forum post you commented on
  • Brief description of the three calls you attended
This is also a great time to ask any questions you might have about next steps and share a little about your journey so far.
We'd also really appreciate if you could fill out the new joiner feedback form below.

[ Step 9 ] What's next?

To progress to a Bronze Owl, you need to embark on a journey of connection and contribution. Bronze Owl status is rewarded by the contributing community. You will need to contribute and be sponsored by existing owls within a working group.
Check out Notion for more information on each of the working groups
Join the public channels in Discord and keep a lookout for public calls.
