What a week in the RKL. Last Tuesday, our $4.5M seed round was announced in conjunction with Coinbase announcing us as a launch partner for their NFT platform. Yesterday, Curry Brany and Underarmor announced that their sneakers would be wearable in the RKL as well as in The Sandbox, Decentraland and Gala Games!

Merch Drop Update:
As you can imagine with the holiday season timelines are incredibly delayed for shipping, production, ordering etc. We received more demand than we could have anticipated. Our production team is pushing hard on all orders but the blanks were delayed for the actual printing/embroidery. This is very high quality US made gear so it does take a bit longer than your average merch.
We have already started to print and process out orders as of last week, some of you may see orders begin going out/marking as shipped over the next few days before Christmas. Expect all orders to be in your hands around the first - second week of January. I know many of you were hoping to get in time for Christmas to give as gifts (and so were we), but we are doing our best to push as fast as possible without giving up quality! Can't wait to see you all rocking RKL!
Community Club Jerseys
We’ve seen and highlighted some amazing derivative and swag created by many RKL Clubs. In the discord, many members are starting to show their allegiances to different clubs both with usernames and derivative pfps. We wanted to make this process easier for any club and are unveiling our jersey bot!
We've added a Club Jerseys feature to our discord bot.
Verify with our collab.land to get access to our #kong-only channels.

type in !jersey [[kong_id]] [[team name]]

Currently the teams included are:
If you have already designed a jersey and want to be included dm me on Twitter or Discord and I’ll add you!
Inspired by all the trash talk we’ve seen thrown around on Twitter. We’re going to hold a friendly competition with these Jerseys. You will be able to vote for your FAVORITE jersey. (favorite could be based on design, how it looks on your kong, or just your allegiances)
The contest will run starting tomorrow (Dec 23 Noon PT) until the new year (Jan 1 2022 Noon PT).
Any verified discord account with access to the #kong-swag channel can type in:
!vote [[team name]] to vote.
!vote versace (if you wanted to vote for the Versace Icons)
Only your last vote will count towards the total.
For example if I voted for the Versace Icons today and then changed my mind and wanted to vote for the Coastal Kong Club tomorrow (using the command both times). Only my vote for Coastal Kong Club will count.
The winning club will get a pair of Aurora Sneakers:
Enjoy the Holidays!
From the entire RKL team, Happy Holidays! The Rebound will be off next week, as I’ll be spending some much needed time with friends and family.
