Pull together for PoolTogether 🌊

Pooly NFTs, Rarible goes L2, Atari joins web3, & more!
May 27, 20222 min read

Dear Bankless Nation,

Leighton Cusack is a co-founder of PoolTogether, the first of its kind no-loss savings dapp on Ethereum.

PoolTogether’s a great project, and Cusack’s a great guy. But what’s not great is how the PoolTogether team (and beyond) have become embroiled in what I and more than a few others estimate to be a totally frivolous lawsuit.

Unfortunately, frivolity doesn’t mitigate the demands of paying for ongoing legal bills. So this week Cusack announced Pooly NFTs, an NFT collection designed to help PoolTogether crowdfund its legal defense.

If you’re interested in helping out, consider checking out the link in the tweet above (there are different support tiers price-wise) or spreading the word to others who may want to chip in.

All that said, thanks for reading. I hope you have a great weekend, but in the meantime let’s get you caught up on the rest of this past week’s NFT news below. Cheers ✌️
