PoolTogether is an Ethereum application that makes saving money as fun as a game. Customers join a pool by buying a “savings ticket” - each savings ticket giving them a chance to win a prize - but even if they don’t win, they keep all their money. PoolTogether lets people have the best of both worlds -- saving money and the chance to win a prize.
