PTBR-5: Community Team

Start Date July 1st, 2023
Duration of Work 3 months
Budget 71,097.50 $

We are a team of high-impact contributors (@Tjark, @underthesea, @Lonser) who all are meaningfully involved in creating the webs that connect people to the protocol.

Our team has a track record of serving the community’s needs and adapting to them accordingly. We advocate for our community values and maintain the infrastructure, keeping the pool clean and inviting for all.

Scope of Work


The community around the PoolTogether protocol needs spaces to get together and align. These spaces need to be responsibly maintained and kept safe.

The team is responsible for stewarding, instilling, and nurturing the culture and ecosystem around the protocol. We equip community members with the tools they need 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


  • Internally: Maintain Community-Member-Fit.
  • Externally: Have the community around PoolTogether perceived as wholesome and secure.

Our goal is to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment where Poolers feel valued and empowered to contribute their ideas, feedback, and expertise. By facilitating meaningful interactions, the team helps to weave relationships between community members and encourages active participation in discussions, initiatives, and building the PoolTogether ecosystem.

Milestones & Deliverables

We do care work for the community. Part of the team’s work is devoting time to what is not directly proportional to our individual results but to what is good for the organization as a whole.

With the upcoming launch of the PoolTogether hyperstructure, we expect an increased inflow of people and questions. The Community Team helps to inform and make information accessible, ensuring no question goes unresponded and no issue is unresolved.
