New Web UI/UX Architecture
PowerPool's UI/UX update: ETH.LIMO + Filecoin for robustness and decentralization
The main problem with centralized infrastructure is that there will always be a single point of failure within the system; when the centralized service provider goes down, the platforms and products that rely on the service provider become unusable and inaccessible.
Website Gating & Access Control
PowerPool DAO is a form of cooperative investment club that operates on the basis of gated/controlled access to the inner workings of the DAO. Gating access is important for limiting the omnipresent scammers who threaten not just the customer experience, but their wallets as well. Wallet-based access control will verify CVP/xCVP/LP CVP tokens on many channels in Discord, and all web-facing PowerPool domains. For evolving regulatory reasons, it may eventually be necessary to qualify potential investors over certain limits with NFT verifications.
Investing in privately-managed (or algorithmic) TradFi crypto hedge funds requires a minimum investment 'ticket' to gain access. In TradFi, this is typically roughly at least $300-500,000 to invest, while meeting KYC and restrictive, discriminatory Authorised Investor status. PowerPool is much, much more accessible and inclusive, broadly-diversified, self-custodied and a transparently DAO-managed option. The main purpose of 'gating' access to the PowerPool DAO Discord and Forum channels to only those who hold sufficient CVP/xCVP is not to exclude typical investors, but rather to protect the DAO's common space, limiting the amount of 'noise' relative to 'signal' by discouraging 'memers', shills and scammers, and by restricting proposals/comments/voting to only those with sufficient 'skin in the game'.

Website Specification & Management Issues
Registered domains...what are the registered Internet domains under control of the PowerPool DAO multi-sig? How do we best mitigate risks of DNS hijacking? Spoofing and other wallet keys/seed phrase phishing scam sites?
Do we have any ENS addresses? What are the best scam-proof domains for:
- DAO Community Wiki - currently Notion shareable public URL, but no gating
- DAO Forum - public and gated private sections for xCVP holders
- DAO Governance - gated for xCVP holders
- Public website - links to restricted Forum & Governance, as well as swap/stake CVP
- Power Universe Trading/Staking page - which wallets to support?
