What’s next?

If you were not successful in Fund6, we know this may be disheartening right now. The Catalyst team would like to thank all proposers who have shown the courage to participate and innovate regardless of the funding outcome. We hope the feedback you have received encourages you to strengthen your ideas and enter a future challenge.

There are more opportunities coming with the funding amounts increasing every round - meaning more projects can be realised. Fund7 opens on November 11 - $8,000,000 in ada for funding. Proposal submission opens on November 18

An extra appreciation to each and everyone of you who took part in this round – from making proposals to refining, acting as community advisors to voting. The list is so long but we couldn’t have done it without you all!

Funded F6 proposers

Proposers who received approval for funding - we will be in touch with all the details this week. Keep an eye for a separate e-mail with onboarding tasks. If you are a co-proposer, make sure your primary proposal owner has a valid e-mail associated with the Ideascale account in order to receive the communication. If you don’t complete onboarding in time - you will not be able to claim the funding.

Voting rewards/incentives

Fund6 voting rewards and incentives (CAs, vCAs, referrals) distribution is expected to commence during the first week of November 2021. Subscribe to the announcement channel to know when that happens.
