English Master- Why PowerPool?
Crypto-based DeFi has proven attractive, but for the average investor, achieving an actively-managed, broadly-diversified exposure across many promising tokens, while aggressively managing and collecting the rewards available, with composability permitting responsible hedging, is best achieved by saving both time and money via an activist pooled investment management platform like PowerPool.
For at least the next year, and probably longer, Ethereum will struggle to transition to POS and, above all, to scale. It is possible than despite many EVM protocols moving to L2 roll-ups or sidechains, surges in transactions traffic and arbitrage bot spamming will keep Ethereum ecosystem gas fees too high for the average responsible investor to achieve thematically-balanced, actively-managed, broadly-diversifed, rewards-rich and hedge-able portfolio on their own. The PowerPool Universe value proposition posits that responsible investing in the likely future Ethereum ecosystem gas fee environment is best managed by pooling average investors' tokens together with thousands of others.
PowerPool pooled investment vehicle tokens can be minted directly, but to save gas fees, most investors will simply buy them on DEXes. The composition/weighting of some of the token pools are actively managed by the stakeholders of the PowerPool DAO, while the composition/weighting of other composable pools are managed in partnership with other DAOs to provide a full range of thematic investment options; borrowing/lending, synthetic shorting, and derivatives positions using perpetual futures and options. However, the average investor need only hold a gas-efficient self-managed mix of Power Universe family tokens, which can be traded/swapped gas-free on the PowerPool website. The PowerPool DAO governance CVP tokens can be staked/redeemed as xCVP tokens, earning a share of the NAV of the DAO Treasury, essentially an ownership share in a crypto hedge fund. Quadratic voting minimises the influence of 'whales' in managing the DAO affairs via xCVP/LP CVP tokens, which are also used to access 'gated' portions of the Community's online presence, such as the Forum Product Development discussions.
