This article is devoted to PowerPool recent developments, results, and future plans for 2021


After the first five months of 2021, we want to take a moment to summarize and reflect on a number of the achievements that we’ve had thus far. As always, we have been heads-down focused on developing new tech: Dynamic AMM (DAMM), ZAP, research and simulations, PowerOracle v2, and underlying assets staking, to name a few. We also released two structured investment products — $ASSY and $YLA during this time.

Along the way, we continued to establish and nurture lasting relationships and integrations with great partners…

PowerPool shares a dynamic weights AMM concept and its implementation on top of Balancer V2.

PowerPool is excited to be a launch partner of Balancer V2 in building structured investment products and ETFs on top of Balancer Protocol.

The long-awaited feature for the ASSY pool is finally audited and prepared for deployment

ASSY is the first Dynamic AMM pool that will use tokens in external protocols for receiving an additional yield on pooled capital. It will provide additional income for LPs.

How does it work: Wrapper + Router architecture

The principal scheme of the Dynamic AMM pool which can use assets for yield-generation in external protocols is presented below:

Proposal 29 is approved, amendment of Part C is pending

Part C’s Amendment

Recently, the PowerPool community voted to approve Proposal 29. However, this proposal triggered a lot of discussions on the forum, especially regarding Part C (rules for future management of testers’ allocations).

A comprehensive overview of Proposal 29 from the PowerPool Core team

Proposal 29 devoted to re-deploying the Beta/Gamma vesting contract and slashing allocations of 40 inactive testers recently got a lot of attention. After reading comments and discussing the provisions of the proposal with some Beta/Gamma testers we understood that people don’t understand this proposal. So, we decided to release a statement and explain every point comprehensively.

Join and exit PowerPool indices with 68X Cheaper Gas Costs

In recent months, gas costs on Ethereum have risen to all time highs. A simple ERC20 transfer can cost $30 dollars while a DEX swap can cost more than $100 dollars. For financial products like PowerPool gas costs are typically much higher due to our smart contracts’ complexity.

It can cost $200, $300 (PIPT, YETI, ASSY), and even $800 (YLA) to supply and withdraw liquidity.

Currently, Powerpool is not sustainable for the average user. However, Powerpool is committed to servicing all segments of the defi market and becoming the go-to…
