The purpose of this topic is to 1. identify and discuss the current shortcomings of the PowerPool as a DeFi (financial) product, 2. draft necessary improvements, 3. team up with other active and competent community members, 4. build minor projects to implement these improvements and 5. reward these members for their job in building PowerPool up as successful product.
I really think that there is much to be done to make PowerPool an outstanding project. I have couple of ideas that could improve our position among competitive projects (I will describe it later in the text), but I would also expect anybody else that he/she would share his/her thought and provide us with critical judgement with the aim to IMPROVE what is not working properly in PowerPool. Please remember that reservations and critical thinking is GOOD but active participation to change it is even better.
We have Community funds available and I see that we also have many very handy and competent people here that would be willing to help or would be easily motivated, if they are properly compensated, so lets do it!
This topic can also be perceived as a tool to monitor and evaluate activities of Management Board with the aim to either increase its effectivity or reduce their members’ rewards (or to remove them completely from their positions), if MB members (@Sergey, @vasilysumanov, @Zero, @DrGonzo, Delacroix) 1**. fail to deliver expected results** or 2. it’s clear that their job can be done easier, cheaper or more effectively at the community level.
As for the (in)activities that I personally perceive as current shortcomings:
PowerPool Twitter activities SUCKS! I am monitoring closely other similar projects (such as Indexed.finance for instance) and they tweet daily or couple times a day! This does not necessary have to be tweets about project updates, anything that could draw attention to our project would be good. I assumed that with the election of MB, this would improve substantially, but I was apparently wrong. Either the MB members do not do their job properly or they do not think that these activities are withing the scope of their job (I would love to see some reaction here from the MB). Either way I think we should have somebody fully dedicated to Twitter (and potentially Reddit) propagation, so if anybody would be interested in this job, please come in, draft your plans and ask for fundings.
Communication within and outside the community in general and marketing is very poor. I would expect MB members to be more active here, giving interviews, host AMAs, produce more video content and so on. And if MB members cannot or do not want to do it, let’s make it ourselves!
PowerPool website needs to be substantially remaked with the aim to provide clear and easy-to-understand information about its mission and financial opportunities even for non-crypto people who might be eventually interested in investing in indices or other cryptorelated products. Please note that we do not have to (nor we should) aim only for cryptoveterans when attracting additional capital. There is 99% people out there that do not have any cryptoexperience but have money and would love to invest it but they do not know the available products and/or do not know, how to make such investments. Why should we catch small fish in small pond when there is ocean of big fish out there. Let’s not compete with Index Coop, Pie Dao or Indexed.finance and other competitors for mercenary capital, instead let’s invite new people to buy our products, but to do that our webpage as the first point of contact needs to be comprehensive and user-friendly!
I would love to take this as my personal project that should be elaborated and funded by the Community fund, therefore I invite 1. English native speaker to help me with the text on webpage, 2. handy graphic webdesigner to give our page completely new and attractive look (just for inspiration and to compare pls look to https://88mph.app or https://yflink.io/ or https://delta.financial), 3. webprogrammer who could implement changes to wepgage (this can alternativelly and preferably be a coder from the PowerPool team). Some experts could be even subcontracted from non-crypto world, if there woud be no one with the necessary skills in our community.
Now I know that according to MB announcement, they have a plan to “upgrade PowerPool public information (descriptions on websites)”, but I think this webpage remake should be more complex thing, but if MB members still think they should do it instead, that I expect that they provide us with time deadlines on this upgrade and stick to it, because I honestly think that this is crucial for our selfpropagation and should be done asap!
Please feel free to submit your own ideas what could be done for PowerPool improvement or discuss some of mine, just let’s do something!
