[RFC] PTBR-4: Executive Team

Executive Team

Start Date July 1st, 2023
Duration of Work 3 months
Budget $12.9k

The Executive-Team has been the primary custodian of prize pool contracts and prize liquidity since V4 inception. We handle custody and transaction matters where directed by governance, such as claiming rewards, and receiving tokens on networks other than mainnet. We are the goto solution for maximum security custody for the community.

Scope of Work

The Executive Team is owner of the PT V4 contracts and will be taking over the role of managing the draw percentage rate parameters previously overseen by The Finance Team. The parameters will be adjusted according to a framework designed by The Finance Team which aims to continue with prize sustainability relative to yield.

We will continue the custody of delegations for the Community Team, Grants, and Growth. Custody continues to be $300k in total.

We continue with a custody limit of $750k to put a hard cap on our total custody. Activities that approach the cap will be brought forward as an alert. Any funds over that amount will need to be approved by a vote to change the cap. This gives the community a clear picture of what our custody risk is.


Our primary focus is security. We will maintain 6/9 multi-sigs of senior contributors who are well versed in PoolTogether infrastructure, happenings, and the greater DeFi ecosystem.

We look to act in a timely and efficient manner to ensure prize liquidity never runs dry, and that Pooler and treasury funds are safe.

These pillars form our goals

  1. Security

No loss. We strive to never lose funds. This is an easily evaluated metric we strive to maintain.

  1. Acting on governance directives

A quarterly team survey evaluates our performance alignment with governance directives. The executive-team aligns with the council. Any concerns from the community are encouraged.

  1. Ensuring prize delivery

Prizes promised are prizes delivered. We strive for no failed prize claims due to a lack of prize liquidity.

  1. Acting in an organized and efficient way.

Transactions are presented by lead as having a standard 24hr time to sign and execute. Transactions requiring more immediate attention are presented with a 12hr time to sign and execute. The team will strive to always meet these deadlines and missed time windows will be reported at quarters end.


The team will be funded and active for all of Q3.
