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
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!
The PoolTogether v3.0-alpha contracts live in the version-3 branch on Github.
PoolTogether 3.0-alpha is currently deployed to the following networks:
