PoolTogether been around for crypto-centuries but I started to use it recently, after they expanded on Optimism. The two created a new ecosystem that works in synergy in the best interest of the DeFi user, creating more opportunities to earn crypto with less hustle. PoolTogether is like a space party where you are invited!

PoolTogether is a savings account where no one loses. The crypto-powered savings protocol is based on Premium Bonds that helps users to save money. Additionally, the participants have a chance to win prizes every day. The Optimism Layer-2 scaling solution is using the Optimistic Rollup system to create fast and cheap transactions, while maintaining all the primary security of the Ethereum network.

I want to be part of the PoolTogether ecosystem, and improve my holdings on Optimism. The opportunity to do both came quicker then I though, as 450,000 OP tokens were allocated as reward you those saving with PoolTogether. The $OP rewards started on Tuesday 26th of July and are accrued in real-time, claimable in weekly epochs. The token distribution rate for Phase 1 is 25,000 per week. 

The first step was to transfer USDC from Arbitrum to Optimism, using Across Protocol to earn $ACX tokens as a bonus for the bridging. Across Protocol is the quicker, cheaper and faster L2 bridge, and every transaction help users earn $ACX tokens.

The USDC arrived on Optimism in less then a minute, where I deposited them on PoolTogether as PTaOPTUSDC. This stash of stablecoin gave me a 1 in 773 Prize Pool Winning Odds.

There are 49 prizes each day, with $4,732 USD allocated to each draw! Which other lottery is currently offering ZERO chances to lose? I can tell you that none! 

I got fascinated by the system, and by the opportunity to earn $OP tokens on top of the chance to earn prizes at the daily draw, that I went all-in and moved all my assets on Optimism. I raised my pool share to $3,181 USD, which increased my daily winning odds at 1:210 and the weekly winning chances to 1:30

I claimed the OP rewards for Week 1, adding 4.19 tokens in my portfolio. The vAPR for the first week was 9.07% and the current earning rate was maintained for another 3 weeks.

The reward claim process is simple and efficient, with the $OP reward being available for claiming on Tuesday. Holding $OP token is the best method to get involved into the development of the Optimism Ecosystem, as the delegation of voting power will decide the best ways to move forward.

I took some USDC out to finance the Humble Tractor KPI options for my NFT collection, and the reward for Week 2 were lower. The vAPR was also a bit lower, at 6.14%, and the weekly reward was 2.61 $OP tokens.

Life is hard in the Cryptoverse and I had to take another batch of USDC out of pool. Week 3 bounty was 1.99 $OP tokens and another 2.05 $OP in the last week of Phase 1 of the PoolTogether Optimistic Summer event. 

I farmed 10.84 OP tokens in the 4 weeks and the good news are that Phase 2 will share even more OP tokens for the users that provide liquidity. I don't consider the farming reward as $13.87 as I plan to hold the OP tokens and have my say in the evolution of the chain.
