PoolTogether is an Ethereum based application making saving money fun. Each Savings Ticket gives you a chance to win a prize, but even if you don’t win, you still get to keep your money. Giving you the best of both worlds by saving money, plus having the chance to win a prize!
When you join a pool, the PoolTogether Protocol transfers the money you deposit into Compound.Finance. Then when your funds are deposited into Compound, they are lent out to other users. The Interest earned from the loans accumulates during the duration of the prize period. So that when a prize is awarded, all the interest that has been earned since the last prize is pooled together and given to the winner!
Essentially, PoolTogether players sacrifice interest they could have earned on holdings of DAI (on the likes of Compound Finance) in exchange for a shot at winning the interest of everyone else in the pool.
