Less than a week after the launch of Project Catalyst, the Fund2 treasury system is now one of the largest devolved innovation funds.
In Fund2, 1,765 unique addresses or registered voters – far more than those at Dash and all 100 best DAOs in Ethereum, locked 566 million ADA coins.
Project Catalyst: An Innovative Funding System
Cardano’s objective is to launch a smart contracting system that is faster, cheaper, and more decentralized than Ethereum.
Over the past few years, its developers have shown decisiveness – and are rigorous in their code, taking into account their orientation to quality and peer review.
Keen to build a vibrant ecosystem as they move towards smart contract activation in Goguen, Cardano recently introduced Project Catalyst. It is an experimental treasury system designed to help in Cardano’s devolution goals. The team said to be an integral part of Voltaire and governance of the chain on the Cardano.
Innovative, the $ 200k fund combines voting and bidding procedures and will be in place to continually fund development in Cardano.
Notably, Project Catalyst is a diversion away from existing systems. It’s different from the controversial systems rejected by Bitcoin Cash miners, or the inflation in Ethereum was supposed to fund the development of their respective platforms.
Democracy in Cardano
It must be admitted that the absence of funds, especially for upcoming projects that require heavy development is necessary to attract and sustain developers. Project Catalyst reflects on Cardano’s democratic culture. Through this portal, projects can submit and vote on proposals.
IOHK – the development arm of Cardano led by Charles Hoskinson has already launched the Project Catalyst voting mobile app. Those with majority support will receive funding in the AVA, based on their impact, practicality and audibility.
All ADA holders have voting rights automatically. However, only those with over 8,000 ADA coins could cast their vote on the proposals in Fund 2 beginning December 15 after downloading Daedalus Catalyst full character wallet.
Like BTCManager reported, ahead of Goguen, the team has already activated the first hard fork blender. Smart contracting is likely to be available in Cardano in early 2021.
