PoolTogether Community Newsletter #28
Aave v3 Yield Source Integration, First Bounty live, Week 8 of Season 1 NFTs, Track your deposits on Apeboard & a lot more inside 🌊🏆
it has been a troubled past few days in the crypto space and I hope you all managed to stay afloat! We have a helpful and caring community on Discord. Feel free to join and reach out if you have been affected and don’t feel well! Here’s some of that No Loss community-wholesomeness delivered straight into your email inbox.
Markets go up and down, but PoolTogether works. Why? Because it’s secure and doesn't over-promise. It's simple to understand, easy to use, and quick to explain: It's a savings account - a powerful financial tool that helps to build healthy habits. 💯
That being said, I appreciate you all for being a part of this. Let’s filter through the noise with our weekly news splash! 💦
Aave v3 Yield Source Integration 👻
Wen L2? 👀
Over the last year, PoolTogether has built a strong partnership with Code4rena. Code4rena is hosting regular audit contests for PoolTogether. This allows for a steady stream of new feature releases while being able to maintain the full security of the protocol.
The latest contest for the Aave v3 Yield Source Integration allows PoolTogether to update its deployments on Polygon but also opens up the door to other networks.
First Bounty of the POOL Bounties Program Live! 🏆
The POOL Bounties program was introduced during our two latest Community Calls. It offers a chance for the PoolTogether community to explore fun ways to grow the protocol, its presence, and reach.
The first bounty is now live on Dework, and it’s one that allows everyone to participate: What is your best idea for unlocking growth of the PoolTogether protocol?
You have time until 7 pm UTC on Sunday, May 15th. ****The six best ideas will be rewarded with 5 POOL each.
Participating in POOL Bounties on Dework is super easy:
Connect your Discord account with Dework
Enter your submission: A short and descriptive title, an overview of your idea, and an explainer of how the idea will benefit the protocol
PoolGrants grants grants! 🏦
With all the Bounties talk we shouldn’t forget about PoolGrants! The Grants Committee has been busy working some magic with help from the community, it’s a reverse 80/20 thing; 20% Grants magic, 80% Community magic. This month is going to be equal parts alpha and funded grants, so strap your board to the top of your ride and buckle your seats, we’re hitting the waves, LFG.
Week 8 of Season 1 NFTs 🥳
Every party has to come to an end. Dance the last dance, and kiss the last kiss, Poolers! Week 8 of Pool Party Season 1 comes with two missions appreciating all people that make the protocol what it is. Both missions are retroactive so you don’t have to do anything to become eligible and can just mint your NFTs next Monday.
Mission #1 rewards all POOL Hodlers. Anyone who proved to be a true pooler and has held POOL for the last 42 days is included! Learn more about the POOL token.
Mission #2 is for the Governance Poolers. It rewards all previous voters on PoolTogether governance. Learn more about PoolTogether Governance here.

Track your PoolTogether deposits on Apeboard
You asked for it, so you shall have it. Thanks to your united efforts Apeboard has now integrated PoolTogether in their Multi-Chain Dashboard!
Poolers and apes can now track their PoolTogether deposits and POOL holdings across all networks.
What started out on just Ethereum has turned into a true multi-chain protocol. PoolTogether allows the full spectrum from beginners, degens to OGs to easily safe money on a network that suits their needs. There’s one thing that complicates it currently: even though the POOL token is both on the Ethereum and Polygon networks, protocol governance so far only exists on Ethereum only.
To finally overcome that, Brendan (CTO of PoolTogether Inc.) has done intensive work on a new multi-chain governance system. What that means? True cross-chain voting, to enable POOL token voting on any chain that the protocol is on. Multi-Chain governance allows to easily capture and broadcast state updates of proposals and voting across multiple L2s or sidechains.
This governance architecture will not only benefit PoolTogether! It’s meant to create a new community standard bringing the Ethereum community up to speed for a future with L2s. Ethereum Magicians - reach out to us on Discord!
Roll-up deployment - Temperature check
What does the community want first: More assets or more chains? This question is being asked by drcpu in a temperature check. The post sums up some discussions around the topic and invites us to think about the direction of PoolTogether in the near future.

PTIP-72: Single-sided POOL staking with IL protection on Bancor
Bancor DAO just recently voted to onboard the POOL token which resulted in an increase of POOL liquidity on Ethereum.
PTIP-72 seeks to deposit 100k POOL from the protocol treasury on Bancor 3, further deepening the liquidity of our token.

gabor🦇🔊🌊🏆 (pronouns: HF/SP) @0xgabor@PoolTogether_ It’s because governance has always been very prudent on adding any kind of yield source and prioritized NO LOSS over flavor of the month with that guaranteed 20/30/3000% APY
Kames Geraghty @KamesGeraghtyFun Fact: The @opensea underlying contracts (Wyvern) were first demo'd on @gitcoin roughly 4 years. I'm looking soooo scruffy in this video. with my first comment being "first off I have to say...holy shit dude" at 54:55 🤣 we've come such a long way. https://t.co/VtHoiq3gqO
