Catalyst Weekly #104 - 6 days remain to cast your vote by July 11 - 11AM UTC

Hello there, beautiful soul!

You’ve made it through half of the Fund12 voting festival. Thank you all for what you have done so far to share the voice about participation, whether as a proposer or a voter or simply an engaged Cardano citizen. Thank you for all of that.

Remember - time is running out to cast your votes - but no later than July 11th, 11 a.m. UTC.

What are some of the key considerations to keep in mind as we roll over the second half of the voting period?

  1. Only wallets that are active are eligible for voting rewards - so don’t miss out on that opportunity. 2.5% of the funding round is allocated to this incentive totalling ₳1,250,000. Make sure to claim yours. Voter rewards are proportional to your voting power (similar to how staking functions). These are then distributed once the funding round concludes - target late August/early September.
  2. Every proposal to be eligible for funding - needs to overcome the 1% voting power threshold. Meaning - from all the registered voting power (not just active) - proposals must receive enough “approve” votes equal or more than 1%. Given that voting power snapshot was about 4.59B ada - this accounts for ±46M ada for a proposal to be above the funding eligibility line.
  3. Lesson here? If you don’t vote for your proposal - you might miss the opportunity. If you don’t talk about your proposal - people won’t know to vote for you. Take the second half of this voting festival by the horns and be heard.
  4. Where to look for more information? All proposals are now loaded on Want to take your research to the next level? Then follow along Lido Nations analytics tool including live tally overview.
  5. If all goes well - results should be available in the week of July 15th.

Happy Voting!
