Please also refer to this list: List of proposers & proposals who have demonstrated their ability in Cardano🎉

List of 60 must-read proposals

スクリーンショット 2023-08-31 22.59.12

Background for making the list:

Reason: To create a realistic list that voters can refer to.

I’ve previously created a list of suggestions like this:

List of 147 proposals who have demonstrated their ability in Cardano🎉

This list contains 147 proposals.

After all, a voter with a list of 147 proposals will simply vote like this:

  1. Vote for 2-3 proposals from the top of the list to complete the voting action.

  2. Or, you may be overwhelmed by the large number of proposals (147), give up, vote for one that was randomly voted on in the app, and end the voting process.

Therefore, I thought that it would be necessary to narrow down to 30, ideally 60 at most, and decided to narrow down based on the following criteria.

:one: Experienced in creating products that are widely used in the Cardano ecosystem (same criteria as the list of 147 proposals)

:two: Fully open source

:three: Strong infrastructure that is widely used by developers etc.

:four: Focus on specific development (coding)

(In addition, there are clearly more advantageous proposals, there are not many users, etc.)

I have not carefully read, considered, and narrowed down all 147 proposals.

I don’t have much time, so I’ve categorized some things intuitively.

Please let us know your opinion.

I am always grateful for your help.


I think you would close the system too norrow if all follow your point of view …all this people and companies indeed proof there self to the comunity …but don’t you think that fresh blood is needed ?

I agree with you, we need another list.
I’m trying to create another list, but I’m having a lot of trouble.

Hello Yuta, thank you for setting this up. Nice work.
As we talked about it earlier there’s a lot of room to add many other proposals, but it’s always a very hard choice. And time for the voting is running out.

I’d like to offer the community my support with this proposal:

Additionally I support fully the initiative called wada - they have a genuine team and they work on the ground in Africa: @wadafund10 | Linktree

Have a good voting experience all! :handshake:
