Getting USDC

In order to use PoolTogether, you need USDC (and a little bit of ETH for the transaction fees). Coinbase allows you to get both without additional fees and deposit directly into PoolTogether without even leaving the app.

  1. Head to Trade at the bottom of your screen & select USDC

  2. Enter the USDC amount, choose your payment method and tap on Preview buy

  3. Validate your purchase and tap on Buy now

Reminder: Apart from USDC you will need a bit of ETH to cover the transaction fees on the Ethereum network.

Depositing into PoolTogether via Coinbase

Open the Coinbase dApp browser located at the bottom right of your app and find PoolTogether on the Earn tab or by using the search.

From here, making a deposit only takes three simple steps:

  1. Enter the deposit amount & tap on Review

  2. Approve the USDC tokens

  3. Confirm your deposit

Now you’re all set for saving and winning prizes. Prize draws happen daily and you can come back whenever you want to check for prizes.

You stay eligible to win as long as you are deposited. If you ever want to stop saving with PoolTogether you can withdraw your USDC and all accrued prizes from the account tab in the app.


  1. This feature has been rolled out in >90 countries. EU & UK users still have to be patient a little longer.

  2. This is currently only available for Ethereum so it makes sense for larger depositors. We anticipate it will be available for other networks very soon.
