PowerPool is a meta-governance layer for Defi built on top of Smart Indexes ecosystem.
PowerPool has its own governance token - CVP (Concentrated Voting Power). CVP is used for making decisions on how tokens, pooled into PowerPool-based indexes will vote and for governing PowerPool itself.
The ecosystem of PowerPool products is called PowerUniverse and contains PowerIndex, PowerOracle (decentralized cross-chain oracle based on Uniswap TWAPs), and PowerPool - lending market for governance tokens, which is deprecated.
PowerPool Smart Indexes are pools based on Balancer AMM , are entirely governed by the community and use pooled tokens for generating additional value for index token holders:
Meta-governance - voting in composite protocols. It means that if index has COMP as its component, it is used for voting in Compound and CVP token holders decide how it will vote. It is applied to all governance tokens in PowerPool indexes.
Vaults strategies. PowerPool indexes actively use tokens, pooled inside index contracts for generating additional cashflows for index token holders. It means, that owning an index token user also owns future cashflow associated with productive usage of pooled assets.
Currently, there are two indexes launched in PowerPool by the community accumulating ~$19m TVL:
PowerIndex - PIPT (PowerIndex Pool Token). It was proposed by Delphi Digital and contains UNI, AAVE, SNX, COMP, YFI, WNXM, CVP, and MKR in equal proportions.
YETI - Yearn Ecosystem Token Index. It was proposed by Ryan Watkins from Messari and contains YFI, SUSHI, KP3R, AKRO, PICKLE, CREAM, and CVP.
