PT Inc. develops improvements and maintains an interface to the PoolTogether Protocol. Previously this team was split into the PT Inc. Protocol Team and the PT Inc Client Team, but we’ve decided to consolidate the two due to shared resources.
Performance Goals and Metrics
Our goal for Q2 2023 is to ship version 5 of the protocol. This version will be a hyperstructure, as detailed in this gov post.
Our moonshot goal is to get the hyperstructure into production.
- Launch a new landing page for pooltogether.com
- Launch version 5 of the protocol: the hyperstructure

The following are ballpark expenses for the quarter. Note that the security bounties are more of a reserve- if no exploits are reported it will rollover. Likewise for auditing, although our goal is to have the PT Hyperstructure on testnet and audited this quarter.
|SAAS / Infra Services||$9000|
Total: $329,000 USDC
