Aave x Pool Together Challenge
PoolTogether, Aave, DeFi, DAI, Ethereum
### Challenge Description
Aave is happy to partner with Pool Together for this challenge. We're big fans of this project and we do believe there's a lot of hack opportunities with the concept of "lottery tickets dai" (plDAI) and "pods" recent updates.
Feel free to dive into our developer's [documentation](https://docs.aave.com) and build the product corresponding to your vision.
For this challenge, you're invited to leverage on the Aave Protocol Features and the Pool Together Protocol to create a new service for your users.
#### Features expected
Challenger applicants are free to provide their vision and ideas to fulfill this challenge.
We are happy to share an idea for applicants :
Pool Together recently introduced the concept of Pods, allowing to "pool" plDAI (fungible tokenized lottery tickets each representing 1 DAI of deposit) with other players to increase their chance of winnings. Aave also has the feature of native interest redirect.
A service allowing to redirect Aave's user's interests into a pod contract, using these interests collected to buy and hold automatically plDAI and keep track of potential rewards can be super attractive for both Pool together and Aave communities and a great example of DeFi synergies.
Developers are invited to leverage on Aave features to create synergies with Pool Together :
- Deposits tokenization with the aTokens — for the first time in DeFi, tokenized deposits are at a 1:1 ratio with their underlying assets
e.g 1 aDAI = 1 DAI = 1 USD.
aToken holders have an ever-increasing balance directly in their wallets.
- Native protocol redirection — any user can define a beneficiary Ethereum address and all their interest will be streamed to the recipient natively.
- Flash Loans — 50M$ liquidity are available and a few lines of code away, borrow as much as you want without any collateral, execute some actions and bring back the capital and the end of your transaction. Liquidations, arbitrage, collateral swaps, and more… the opportunities are limitless.
- Brand new reshape of the Stable rates mechanisms for borrowers.
