Hello and welcome to the Coop 👋. We’re glad you’re here.Interested in contributing? We’ve laid out the 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 series of questions designed to ensure we point you in the right direction, aligning your skills and interests with the most suitable working group. Upon completion of the NJ form, you’ll be emailed a number of important pieces of information. Once you've submitted the form, you can continue to [ Step 2 ] below.

[ Step 2 ] Join the Discord Channel

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.

  • I've joined the discord server and introduced myself in the 👋 Introductions 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.

[ Step 5 ] Complete the New joiner orientation feedback form

Submitting this form will indicate you’ve attended the live orientation call so that you can proceed through the subsequent steps. It also helps us ensure we’re providing new owls with the best possible experience moving forward.

The feedback form can be found here.

On completion of the orientation form, you'll be upgraded to the copper owl status from owlett.

Be sure to stay until the end of the New Joiner call as you'll be given a task to achieve the copper owl status
