Introduction

PoolTogether: A Protocol for Prize-Linked Savings

🚧 !!! Under Construction !!!

Please note that this documentation is currently for the alpha version of PoolTogether 3.0. It is subject to change until the protocol has stabilized.

PoolTogether is a protocol for prize savings on the Ethereum Blockchain. It enables the creation of pools of funds whose accrued interest is distributed fairly as prizes. Users of the protocol deposit funds in exchange for tickets, which represent both the amount of underlying assets and their chance to win. Prizes are awarded as tickets to the winning ticket holder.

The protocol shares the same key characteristics of all prize savings products:

  • No loss of deposited funds

  • Ability to withdraw a deposit at any time

  • Fairness of prize distribution

Because the protocol is built on the Ethereum blockchain it also has the additional advantages of:

  • Decentralized ownership and governance

  • Programmability

  • Efficiency through administration by smart contracts

  • Trust through transparency of code

Please join the #development channel in the PoolTogether community Discord server. The PoolTogether team and members of the community are there to help you build your application and answer any questions you might have. Your questions help us improve the protocol!
