Proposal 37: YLA Vaults composition update

Proposal 37: YLA Vaults composition update

PowerPoolPowerPool09 Jun 2021 | 18:47 pm
YLA was designed to maximize APY generated by a set of Yearn Vaults. It executes the “fund of funds” strategy, widely used in traditional finance. The initial set of Vaults and their weights were based on TVL/APY at the moment of launch. The current set is outdated and there are much better options for YLA users.

PowerPool is excited to be a launch partner of Balancer V2 in building structured investment products and ETFs on top of the Balancer Protocol.

Assy is the first Dynamic AMM pool that will use tokens in external protocols for receiving an additional yield on pooled capital. The first token from ASSY that will be used for staking is Sushi.

The PowerPool team has had discussions with xToken's team on possible ways of integrations. xToken is an ecosystem of xToken, comprised of simple vaults of a specific token. One proposal of how that could be done is that xToken could be used as components of PowerPool products to allow for auto yield compounding.

We propose to use products called “xTokens” such as xINCH and xAAVE as a building block for PowerPool structured investment products. xToken is an ecosystem of xTokens - products that can be defined as simple Vaults for a specific token. For example, for 1INCH it harvests governance staking rewards and adds it to the main staking position, compounding yield.

The Yearn Lazy APE index is composed of the v1 Yearn Vaults' LP and serves as a perfect entry/exit point into the Yearn v1 ecosystem. It's based on 5 yEarn pools, which in turn are based on stablecoins. Stablecoins are called stable because they don't lose value, but pools provide steady cash flow at a 30% APY rate collected back inside the pool.

Management Board Report: March 2021

The Management Board of PowerPool has released its first monthly report for the month of July. The Board found 40 idle testers and proposed to slash their combined 2,000,000 CVP (2% of total supply) in Proposal 29. The remaining 7,600,000 burnt will be allocated to active Beta and Gamma testers from the Powerpool Treasury.

Proposal 31: apply CVP boost for YLA, not YLA-USDC SLP

PowerPoolPowerPool14 Apr 2021 | 10:19 am
Using CVP Boost for the YLA-USDC SLP token is inefficient and too complicated, and costly for PowerPool users. YLA generates 30% APY while USDC generates nothing. It is much more efficient to supply 100% of USDC to YLA and not split it 50/50. This will simplify things and offer additional interest for just holding YLA.

ASSY weights significantly differ from weights that should be established by DAMM (based on M.Caps). It happened since initial weights were established a long time ago and market caps changed a lot.
