Community. I belive that strong project equals strong community (YFI case as the brightest example). Strong community equals people who want to invest their resourses (not only money, but knowledge) in the project. After several months of pre-mainnet version we can see some “PowerPool OGs” actively contributing to the project.
User Experience. Want mass adoption? Make great userexperience. Despite big changes in crypto over the past 2 years, it’s still hardly understandable for common people. Things like PowerIndex make life easier = more people can be attracted to crypto.
ETF-like products are still rather new for crypto, but have big potential (hey, S&P and Dow Jones are 2 of key indicators of whole world market).
Common user wants to click couple buttons and be happy, not read 1000 lines of code to understand how to deposit. And PP can solve (or try at least) this problem.
Innovations or “do or die”. Like every innovation PP can rise and shine or die in the deepest grave. But at the moment it’s mostly at our early hands. It’s very exiting.
Personally I was surprised in a good way when PP team announced Oracul. I still believe there are very few oraculs in defi and we need more to create healthy competitive environment. Competetion often encourages improvements in quality.
Who am I and why me
Beta-tester. I was there since the beginning. Yep, we have some problems with distribution (you can check here that i was for vestings before Delphi’s prop) and maybe with transparance, but here I am. You can always DM me and ask any questions you have.
Head of a large Russian private group “Zero Yakuza”. It’s a private group where I personally interview each member to make sure that only the worthy ones join our community. We are professional traders, node operators, investors and researchers. The big idea of my community is in accumulating skills and support: with community of right people you can do more than you can do by yourself. Zero Yakuza is about 3 years old and has 100 members. For example, our members actively particapate in Keep development: github commits, design, moderation and even community entertainment.
Everything mentioned above leads to 2 points:
- I possess some knowledge about community management. ~3 years, 2 or 3 cryptowinters and we are still here.
- If needed, our community can and will help in PowerPool development. We are already LPing and will go harder.
Skin in the game. Quite boring, but necessary reason for particapation. Since we locked testers funds in order to participate in governence, I have been buying CVP in deeps and highs (first buy at 3.4 when Deplhi’s prop came out, last at 1.5 and still buying) and LPing. Also actively reporting bugs, testing new features etc.
3 years of full-time crypto. From ICOs and private researches (you can find some of them in my tg-channel in Russian) to node operation and trading. I did basically everything in crypto and will do more. It’s not entirely about money, but also about fun and entertainment. And crypto gives it all.
Feel free to discuss and ask questoins.
