Michael Schloh von Bennewitz1 has submitted two separate CCS proposal23 to procure and distribute merchandise and serve Monero content to thirty thousand visitors at the DEF CON 304 hacking conference in Las Vegas on August 11-14 2022:

This CCS proposal absorbs most of the costs of serving Monero content to thirty thousand visitors at the Defcon hacker conference in Las Vegas (30th anniversary.) [..] This CCS relates only to the production of the stand itself, the display rack of Monero project information, and the on site delivery. (!3252)

This CCS proposal absorbs most the costs of providing a number of Defcon visitors with free of charge Monero branded merchandise. [..] The funded amount will be paid in one milestone, to allow staff to purchase merchandise in time for distribution in August 2022. (!3263)

CCS !325 (Production and delivery)

Total funding proposed: 108 XMR.
