Pooltime Team Description & Updates

It’s Pooltime

We’re creating this thread to provide additional information about the team, its purpose, values, and ongoing responsibilities. We will use it to provide insights and updates into our team’s activities.


The team is responsible for stewarding, instilling, and nurturing the culture and ecosystem around the protocol. We equip community members with the tools to enhance their experience of using PoolTogether and getting involved.

  • Identity: Facilitate and foster events, vibes and values
  • Spaces: Manage and maintain community spaces
  • Content: Create and promote content such as newsletters, guides, articles, and user documentation
  • Engagement: Empower community members to take ownership in growing PoolTogether
  • Relationships: Cultivate trust, coordinate actions, and help to collaborate for change
  • Tools: Build tools to interact with the protocol, and run experiments to prove concepts

How we align with PoolTogether’s mission & values

We closely align with PoolTogether’s mission to help people build wealth in a fun and engaging way.

We defined PoolTogether’s core values to be wealth-creating, accessible to all, secure, user-owned, autonomous, transparent and fair, as well as fun and engaging. All of our team’s actions can be directly tied to at least one of these.
