[SCP-41] Top Drawer Merch (official ideation thread)

SUMMARY
This proposal is to fulfill the duties of the Fox merchandise platform. Top Drawer Merch will partner with Fox/Shapeshift to handle all of the creation/distribution of their products worldwide.

SPECIFICATION
TDM will be responsible for the design, manufacturing, logistics and all things that go into e-commerce management. 70% of the profits from the store would go back to the DAO in the form of USDC at the end of each quarter net 30 days to settle.

MOTIVATION
TDM has a high level of knowledge in the crypto space and can execute at the highest level for product creation, implementing crypto as payment in the store, and management of any physical products as well as NFT’s. They currently work with companies such as Badger DAO, Iota, Yearn Finance, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Gutter Cat Gang, etc.

BENEFITS
ShapeShift DAO gets the benefit of a professionally managed Merch Store without the headache of managing it. In addition to community members and users being able to purchase high quality ShapeShift swag, the 70% affiliate revenue share is generous and will add an additional revenue stream to the DAO.

Drawbacks
Shapeshift DAO will not own the merch store but it will be in a full partnership with Top Drawer Merch utilizing all of their resources.

I understand that we may not own the merch store infrastructure - but can the DAO be assured that it owns the art and imagery we produce to create the merch?

Otherwise, this looks great.
