Key points/questions discussed: - Whether to release an all-new consolidated wearables collection or update existing collections - Challenges of getting every collection owner to update their metadata - Benefits of a consolidated collection for discoverability - Exploring a community-owned DAO model for the consolidated collection - Attributing authorship for collaborative/community collections - Potential to integrate wearables into other metaverse platforms like Substrata Action steps/plans: - Release dataset of wearable snapshots and metadata for community input - Explore upgrading metadata for a test existing collection - Set up a testnet/subset for a potential consolidated new collection - Engage community to decide path forward for consolidated vs updating existing - Integrate wearables into M3's open source VRM avatar toolkit - Explore VRM export for parcels and avatars - Pursue more cross-metaverse/platform integration for CryptoVoxels wearables - Establish community governance/ownership model like a DAO Overall, a major initiative to make CryptoVoxels wearables robustly interoperable while preserving their history, with openness to community direction on the specific approach
