What is PoolTogether?
PoolTogether is a global savings account with super powers. It’s a DeFi protocol enabling anyone to deposit and have the chance to win millions of dollars in prizes!
This is possible because PoolTogether is a decentralized protocol designed to help people save money.
When someone deposits into the protocol their deposit is combined and used to generate yield on other DeFi protocols like Aave. The yield generated becomes the prizes! Everyone has a chance to win, and no one loses. The greater your deposit, the better chances you have to win the largest prizes.
It almost seems too good to be true—but you can deposit money into PoolTogether for a chance to win big, and withdraw your full deposit amount at any time. As long as you keep money in the PoolTogether smart contract, you are eligible to win!
