What is Pollen DeFi?

Pollen DeFi is a DAO platform, a decentralized portfolio management protocol that allows the creation and distribution of low volatility Defi tokens, and the use of reserve pools to distribute profits for DAO members.

Pollen, inspired by the ongoing financial crises, aspired to build what was seen as a missing piece of DeFi infrastructure. Pollen drew on several projects and inspiration points and performed an analysis of DAO’s wealth management tools and best practices (strengths and cons) to create a good model. best.

One of the goals of the Pollen implementation is to create an Ethereum-based asset index that can be used as risk-diversified collateral in the DeFi ecosystem, allowing for the replacement of over-collateralized In some cases. With Pollen, members propose collective decision-making for digital asset portfolio management. It is similar to an index fund, the main difference being that all the participants are stakeholders. Members can delegate their voting rights to any other member, which allows those with little time to participate to still oversee governance. Assets are stored in smart contracts and rebalanced by collective decisions.

The most important part of any DAO is the governance model. Pollen uses delegation but keeps in mind that similar to the authorization process in dPoS based networks, holders with few tokens delegate their voting power to someone with a significantly large amount of tokens. , as it ensures that he will act in the best interests of the DAO. The voting process is designed with spam prevention in mind (any vote must be paid with the final deposit back). Members (including proxies) are rewarded for participating in the voting process while others are not – it is done to address what is known as “voters apathy”. And users are free to withdraw at any time.

One of the main mechanisms of Pollen is abbreviated as PIP. PIP is similar to EIP in Ethereum, in that the community decides on a standardized interface and allows any user to create competing implementations. The way Pollen is architected revolves around the DAO, the DAO Factory, and modules. Modules are where the core of business logic runs, and DAOs can easily accept new modules, upgrade existing ones, or even stop old ones. By standardizing interfaces for modules, the community will be able to create competing implementations, e.g. vaults for different chains, leveraged vaults, staking vaults, and other profits vault module holds assets for groups of assets that will follow the PIP vault interface.


Pollen was founded in 2021 as the first decentralized crypto asset management company where the community holds all the power. Operated by the merit-based Pollen DAO, its governance protocol leverages the collective intelligence of its users to manage the pool of assets in a system that allows all participants to benefit from the contribution contributions from the most effective traders. Pollen’s core products include virtual portfolios and asset-based index management tools.
